Film Theory: The Spiderman 2 Mystery! Why Spiderman Lost His Powers!

We have seen quite a bit 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 motion pictures, but I want you to think FURTHER back. That’s right, I am conversing Tobey Maguire Spider-Man.
Recollect how at the finish of his first motion picture EVERYTHING had gone awry? Norman Osborn – the Green Goblin – was gone, his bestie was fatherless, Uncle Ben did what all Uncle Ben’s do, and many others.. It was all really sad. In Spider-Man 2, we see a Spider-Man without any his powers. I want to speak about WHY he lost his powers. What made our amicable, neighborhood Spider-Man just plain, old Peter Parker?

  1. As the matter of fact spider man’s weakness is actually jealousy you can see it in the spider man 2 that mary jane has another man then loses his powers after a minute
    His powers are also depending on mary jane

  2. In the movie doc ock says “when you keep something as complicated as love kept up inside, it makes you sick”. Peter kept his love for mary jane inside but when it was time to save mary jane he git his powers back. He didnt get his powers back when he tried to save the little girl because he had that psychological barrier. I do respect the effort put into this theory but when looking for an actual cause for spiderman’s loss power, this one is straight up said in the movie

  3. anyone thinks that the intro theory colored costume reminds of Rowan Atkinson “Spider-Plant-Man” parody of Spiderman?

  4. I knew this since 2006

  5. Young people today! Ever heard of .. a picture is worth a thousand words?
    We see Peter struggling and failing to have a life. we see his suffering. Not sleeping, auditory hallucinations..withdrawal..screwing up at work.
    We are shown each and every instance of the protagonist suffering. We are shown again and again that he is not some mythical hero but, just a man that can fail.
    This is shown up in the screen in full colour ,with the accompaniment of .. appropriate sound to evoke the needed emotions.
    The director did the best he could. Its all there for those with eyes.No mystery ,nothing hidden.
    The rest.. is up to the viewer. as it should.

  6. Dude, Matt can you just invite a guest therapist or psychologist or psychiatrist on the show rather than you making the diagnosis? I trust that you sincerely care about mental health issues, please think about what message you’re sending people when you make the diagnosis, that non professionals are capable of making judgements. You do realize how this is a problem right? You can very easily have a guest come help with that part and you’ll still get your views

  7. Cool suit MatPat

  8. It’s my favorite color

  9. “Hey he stole that guys pizza!”
