New fan art makes the emotional scene between Zendaya’s MJ and Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker/Spider-Man in No Way Home even more poignant.
New fan art makes it one of the Spider-Man: No Coming Home’The most emotional scenes are even more heartbreaking.
The image is a recreation of the moment right after Peter Parker/Spider-Man’s version of Andrew Garfield managed to save Zendaya’s GM from his death, preventing him from suffering the same fate as his girlfriend – Gwen Emma Stone’s Stacy – in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. However, unlike No coming home, Gwen’s ghost can be seen wrapping her arms around Peter with a smile on her face. The image is captioned with a line from Gwen in The Amazing Spider-Man 2: “My wish for you is to become hopeful. People need it.”
Spider-Man: No Coming Home, the 27th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, premiered in December 2021 and became one of the most successful films of all time. It has grossed over $1.8 billion at the worldwide box office, making it the highest-grossing film of 2021 and – at the time of writing – the sixth-highest-grossing film of all time. behind Avengers: Endgame and Infinity War, Titanic, Avatar and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
A hit with critics and audiences alike, fan passion for the film has yet to wane. Beyond the immense wealth of fan art released over the past few months, many have argued that the film deserves an Oscar. Even Samuel L. Jackson, the actor behind the MCU’s Nick Fury, has expressed support for a new category of Oscars recognizing popular achievement. He said Spider-Man: No Coming Home should win this award because “it did what movies have done forever – it brought people into a big, dark room”.
Iconic filmmaker and comic book fan Kevin Smith made a similar point during one of his recent podcasts, saying, “Throw in Spider Man [into the Best Picture category] For God’s sake. Let it swing in there. Poor fucking kid who always gets pissed and shit – show Peter Parker some fucking love.” Late night host Jimmy Kimmel also described Spider-Man: No Way Houses exclusion from the Best Picture category as an “unforgivable commission”.
While Spider-Man: No Coming Home is nominated for Best Visual Effects at the upcoming 94th Academy Awards, there’s one person who doesn’t think the film needs an Oscar to validate its success: Garfield himself. “Personally, I’m pretty happy with the response from the public. I think it’s a lot,” the actor said.
Spider-Man: No Coming Home is available now on multiple digital platforms, including iTunes, released shortly after a Blu-ray-quality version was leaked online. Physical versions of the film will be released at home on April 12.
