No Way Home Trailer Continued A Naughty MCU Tradition
The Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer continues a naughty Marvel Cinematic Universe tradition from the franchise’s previous Spider-Man movies.
In Marvel Studios films, the curse is usually a no-no; just ask Captain America to Avengers: Age of Ultron, who made it clear that plain language would always be the order of the day. However, there were partially secular moments, particularly in the Tom Holland film. Spider Man movies. In a fun way, the Spider-Man: No Path Home The trailer continues that naughty tradition of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Our first taste of how Pete wasn’t a Boy Scout came when he yelled “Holy S ** t!” when Ant-Man became Giant Man in Captain America: Civil War, grabbing War Machine in the airport battle. However, it was taken up a notch in Spider-Man: Homecoming as Marisa Tomei’s Aunt May dropped the f-bomb when she walked into Pete in the mural caterpillar costume, unmasked. She screamed “What is this–!” before the movie cuts the end credits, adding a surprisingly fun twist to a life-changing moment for the web crawler.
It happened once again in Spider-Man: Far From Home in the credits scene, where Mysterio’s show aired throughout New York City in the aftermath of the Battle of London. There, J. Jonah Jameson broadcast the footage to the Bugle of the day digital platform, exiting Pete as Spidey. The costumed Avenger immediately put his hands on his head and shouted the same line May dropped before the film returned to the credits, retaining its PG-13 rating.
Now the No way home The trailer seems to poke fun at those moments when Pete’s superhero identity is revealed, as we see Doctor Strange rocking a beautifully secular cup of coffee in the Sanctum Sanctorum. When Pete visits him to cover up his secret and make the world forget that he is Spider-Man, the Sorcerer Supreme holds a mug that reads, “Oh for [fox] sake “, but instead of saying fox, it’s a real photo of the fox.
It might be a nod to Disney buying Fox or Strange, tired of having to meddle with space and time, but seeing these Spider Man movies don’t care about NSFW moments, fans think it’s a clever Easter Egg to previous curse incidents. Whatever its true nature, it’s smart as it straddles the provocative line but not overly explicit, echoing other key scenes in the MCU.
Of course, the Spider Man movies aren’t the only MCU movies to find ways around the limitations of the PG-13 rating, when it comes to language. There’s also Garry Shandling’s Senator Stern cursing Tony Stark in Iron man 2, although his f-bombs are detonated as Tony mocks them for trying to curb his view of world peace.
We also can’t forget Peter Quill in the first one. guardians of the galaxy movie showing a middle finger when the Nova Corps picks it up, as well as how it almost blew the f-word out when the Orb later exploded. In the end, Strange’s mug in No way home maybe he’s referring to it as well, but we won’t know until he and Pete discuss Spidey’s identity crisis and, maybe, the funny caption about his coffee mug.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is directed by Jon Watts and played by Tom Holland. The film will hit theaters on December 17th.
