    Spiderman is DEAD! ►►
    Venom is the VICTIM! ►
    We've seen a lot of Spider-Man lately. Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and soon Spider-Man: Far From Home. Before that we saw Andrew Garfield slinging webs with Emma Stone for a couple movies, but I want you to think FURTHER back. That's right, I'm talking Tobey Maguire Spider-Man.
    Remember how at the end of his first movie EVERYTHING had gone wrong? Norman Osborn - the Green Goblin - was gone, his best friend was fatherless, Uncle Ben did what all Uncle Ben's do, etc.. It was all very sad. In Spider-Man 2, we see a Spider-Man without his powers. I want to talk about WHY he lost his powers. What made our friendly, neighborhood Spider-Man just plain, old Peter Parker?

    What about the newer Spiderman with Tom Holland? He has no powers at all. He uses technology to be Spiderman. Can we get a film theory about that?

    He loses his powers because of he has natural powers unlike in amazing Spider-Man he didn't have web shooters but he has natural webs out of his wrist, if he gets to stressed out he loses his ability to use powers. Him losing m.j. he gets to stressed and he needs to save her which brings him back.

  • Breaking The Chamber
    Breaking The Chamber 13 days ago

    I mean this is pretty clear in the film the whole time. It's shown clearly that the trauma of his life falling apart is causing his powers to falter. The movie doesn't need to explain anything, it SHOWS it. That's the beauty of film being a visual medium.

    Maybe because the radioactive spider that was bit him had to be alive in order for his powers to work.

    And since im here can I suggest you do a video on the movie Coraline

    What theme song is better Batman’s or Spider-Man’s theme song ? And seriously mate talk a little less detailed it makes it a little hard to understand what you’re saying and I guess powers are linked to your feelings it is one of the most heroic acts ever to save yourself aswell indeed😊👍🏻

    The 9ine God 14 days ago

    I grew up on these movies. From childhood. I will tell you this now. He lost his powers cuz he lost the heart and the soul of who he was. He wasn't in touch with who he was. He didn't understand his destiny or his soul path. He was just a robot with cool powers. But close to the end where he gains them back. He became back in touch with his purpose. He wasn't just Peter Parker AKA Spiderman. He was Peter Parker the man with a purpose. The man who was MEANT to be Spiderman.
