A Little Bit of Spider-Man: No Way Home Speculation!

Don’t worry, there are no ‘spoilers’ here, I’ve not seen the film yet, but tomorrow, finally I’m seeing ‘No Way Home’!

(You can now read my first thoughts HERE)

By the end of the week, most of the world will have had a chance to see it. So now is the last chance for a little last-minute pondering, speculating, and guessing as to what we’ll be treated to in this movie.

It’s almost certain we’ll be getting Venom, if you’re not expecting that, you haven’t seen ‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage‘. I think there could possibly also be another villain from past movies they’ve not already specifically revealed, maybe other characters too. It would be strange if we don’t briefly get an Avenger or two cameoing, and, many hope to see Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield reprising their roles as alternate Peter Parkers, though it’s far from confirmed. 

Beyond those ‘obvious’ predictions, what less-expected surprises could be in ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’? 

Firstly, like ‘Infinity War’, I don’t think the problems will be fully resolved by the end of the movie. ‘Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness’ seems to be following on very directly from this, and I don’t think it will just be Steven Strange that ties the two together, I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s more unfinished at the end of this film that needs resolving.

Something people are hoping to see, though there’s no firm basis to think it’s imminent, is Miles Morales. The MCU is in a phase where they’re bringing in successors for their hero roles, most distinctly a new Captain America and we’ve also been introduced to a new Black Widow though she’s not yet taken on that role in the Avengers roster. Despite not yet being named as such we’re seeing the introduction of a new Hawkeye on Disney+. Beyond that we’ve also had alternate Loki, soon to be getting an alternate Thor, and sadly for other reasons, it looks likely there could be someone else taking on the role of Black Panther. It’s not Marvel Studios’ decision, it’s Sony’s, but if it were, then this wouldn’t even be a question, we would be certain of a different Spidey by this phase of the MCU. 

Whether we get it in this movie or not, it’s time for a Spider-Man that isn’t Peter Parker. Introducing a live-action Miles would mean there are two, one for the MCU, another more focused on appearing in Sony’s Universe. We’ve not had Peter’s origin story shown yet with the Holland MCU version, so any similar elements can be explored with Miles without feeling too repetitive. A fresh Spidey could also be fresh, unsupported by the Avengers and expensive tech, which would work better if going into the Sony films to face off against their current version of Venom.

Another thing I’m guessing is that we’ll see Tony Stark, from another universe. Sure, they got to say goodbye but only briefly, and we know from ‘Far From Home’ that Peter is struggling with his death and the weight of the responsibility he has to shoulder. 

I also wouldn’t rule out the possibility that Happy Hogan is retconned to be Benjamin Hogan, and becomes new Uncle Ben… sure, it would be weird, but also not far off what they’ve done with Zendaya’s Michelle being known as MJ to her friends. She’s not Mary Jane, but she’s taken the place of MJ in all other ways. So Happy could step into the role of Ben in many ways, something that hit me as a possibility after rewatching ‘Far From Home’ the other day. 

Will we see any of these things? I don’t know, but it’s a lot of fun pondering because this movie has the scope to do almost anything, and I really hope they grab that opportunity with both hands and make it unlike anything else!

Academy Award Predictions 2021 & Oscar Ballot Sheet

Here’s the full list of this year’s Academy Award nominees vying to take home those coveted Oscar statues on Sunday, April 25th, 2021 (or the early hours of Monday 26th if you’re on the other side of the planet like me). 

You can download my PDF ballot sheet here that can be completed digitally or printed and written on. Have a go at predicting the winners or challenge your friends and family to do the same. I usually like to score 2pts for every correct first choice, and 1pt for every second choice winner.

Below, I’ve put who the predicted winners are thought to be, as well as my runner up choices with an outside chance of taking it and in some cases those I’d personally like to see win.

A few things to watch out for:

  • Potentially the first time all acting winners are people of colour, including a posthumous win for Chadwick Boseman.
  • Mank, despite having the most nominations may go home empty-handed, Citizen Kane only won one Academy Award itself.
  • It could be the second year in a row that the Best Picture is primarily in Korean if Minari manages a surprise win thanks to preferential balloting.
  • Despite Hamilton not being deemed eligible, Leslie Odom Jr. will likely win an Oscar for his song Speak Now, or if not, it could be Diane Warren’s year to finally win after 12 nominations!
