Spider-Man: No Way Home has been in theaters for nearly a month now, and fans are still raving about the once-in-a-lifetime Endgame-like experience the film provided. Despite the movie featuring many well-known actors from past Spidey flicks, the general consensus is in agreement that Tom Holland gave his strongest performance as the web-slinger to date, showcasing a range of emotions throughout No Way Home's runtime.
When Holland stepped up to the plate for this movie, he brought every ounce of effort with him. Whether it was the gut-wrenching loss his character had to endure with Aunt May's tragic death, the light-hearted quips that Spider-Man is known for, or the intimate relationship between himself and Zendaya's MJ, Holland's best was on display.
The themes of dealing with loss and consequences are clearly the basis of No Way Home's story. There are many times the character is beaten down to the point where he feels like he has nothing left. Then at the end of the movie, just when it seems like everything will end happily, he has to suffer through his worst loss yet. In that light, a new poster has just surfaced that captures some of the emotions Peter had to endure on his journey.
Spider-Man: No Way Home's New Poster
The official Sony Pictures Twitter account for Mexico has officially released a new Spider-Man: No Way Home poster in light of the film still performing as the #1 movie in the country.
The poster features Tom Holland standing over a lit-up Times Square in New York City, mask in hand, with a beaten and bloodied face. The poster can be seen below:
This poster is similar to another No Way Home banner that was released prior to the film's premiere. It featured Holland's Spider-Man in the same location, with a wider view of the city and him sitting on the rooftop instead of standing:
Overcoming the Spider-Man Struggles
This poster showcases everything that Spider-Man: No Way Home is built on. Numerous times throughout the film, Tom Holland's Spider-Man feels as though he has nothing left. After May dies at the hands of Willem Dafoe's Green Goblin, Peter goes to the roof of his school and is at the lowest point viewers have ever seen him.
This also serves to highlight of the movie's most iconic moments, as it is the first time Holland's Peter meets and interacts with Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire's versions of the character.
Although he is beaten down physically and emotionally, both the poster and the film show just how much of a true hero Spider-Man is. He lost the person that he was closest to, and he is overlooking the city and seeing every building and sign depicting him as a murderer and a criminal, but he still finds a way to overcome all of his struggles and accomplish what he set out to do in the first act of the movie.
The phrase "a picture can be worth 1000 words" is definitely applicable in this poster. It says so much about the movie and about his character in one simple image. There is a reason that Spider-Man: No Way Home has performed as well as it has at the box office, and why it will become a classic in the comic book movie world for years to come.
