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?

  • An alternate theory is that he wasn't well rested or nourished enough. MatPat addressed Peter's lack of sleep in his diagnosis, and its highly possible that he's so busy as Spider-Man that he didn't get enough time to eat properly. The comics document his spider sense becoming less accurate or stop working altogether when he's tired or hungry, and during the brief time he had organic web shooters in the comics (which he has permanently in the film) it is stated that if Spidey doesn't consume the proper proteins and nutrients required to make webbing then they stop working (as they did in the film) So there you have it! Alternate theory. But.... Thats just a theory, a film theory! Aaaannnnd cut!

  • Wait but hwo does trauma make him lose his powers because it’s basically just talking about trauma happening and he loses his powers but how?

  • F

  • How does he webcrawl while wearing gloves

  • Hire this man as a lawyer

  • 789781235211231274979891.gif

  • He has memorized Mario’s height

  • 11:06 hmm self care huh? 😏

  • The reason why he lost his powers is because Peter forgot to pay Mr Dikovitch RENT!!!!!

  • If Spidey was real, he would not be pleased about the fact that his name is not hyphenated in the title. I’m not joking. It’s surprising how often he makes a point about his name being hyphenated to people.

  • #Justiceforneighborgirl

  • Bruh,the reason peter lost his powers is because he gave up because the city gave up on spider man,not because of PTSD.And when he gets them back to fight doctor octopus its becuase the city needed him,so they believed in spider man.And thats why he got his powers back

  • In the comics one issue he randomly loses his powers but when he has to fights he noticed his spider sense works and then the other powers come back mid fight

  • ORRRR Mary Jane is a Petty B**ch

  • Was I not supposed to know it was ptsd I always just assumed that’s what it was, thanks for the confirmation though

  • 1:13 pat: press f to pay respects Me:does this entire thing just to press f

  • Thank you for adressing the dangers of mental health

  • F

  • You just made me love the Sam Rami movies now...

  • So... this basically just explained what everyone already knew? He lost his powers cuz he went through some fucked up shit and wasn’t right mentally... that wasn’t unexplained that was implied and pretty obvious lol I mean I love You MatPat and I love Film Theory but this one seemed really pointless.

  • How did you make Lucas the spider not cute right here 1:19

  • “He has memorized Mario’s night”

  • *thanos snaps* “mr. theory man I don’t feel so good”

  • Who was the *GENIOUS* man or women who memed the beging if this video?

  • I have PTSD apparently

  • I pressed f

  • Ok game theory in Spider-Man into the spiderverse miles saw peter die and he goes through that disease why are his powers more effective then

  • it’s funny because this was never actually a mystery people (or at least most i’ve seen on the internet) concluded that his emotional turmoil over always having to choose spider man over his own life was why he was that way

  • No it is definitely not a theory, now it's real, every thing makes sense now!!!

  • F

  • Nice job they already said this in the movie

  • #justiceforneighborgirl

  • Welp...i think i have ptsd.....that's fun!

    • Gaming Noob that’s sad I hope you get a skin one day or at least the battle pass lmao

  • F

  • He lost his powers because he was heartbroken by M.J.(my opinion)

  • F

  • XD dat song at the start tho lmao lol

  • 1:14 We lost two Spider-Men in 2018. Rest In Peace.

  • Do i have P. D. S. D

  • F to pay respect

  • You got that all wrong matpat, adaa actually stands for American dodgeball association of America. I don't know where the heck you got depression from.

  • *uses game theory logo for film theory intro* Me: what sorcery is this!?!

  • Matpat: Press F to pay respect... Me: *(Clicks F)*

  • f i have spiderman power for real

  • Doctor Octopus’s wife, ask if peter has a gf but peter doesn’t know and Octavius replies with “Love should never be kept a secret.If you keep something complicated such as love, it can make you sick. And I got this information from stock exchange

  • No the ADAA stands for the American dodgeball association of America

  • It might be a little cliche but in CinemaWins vid for spiderman 2 he points out a scene where Otto tells peter " if you keep something as complicated as love inside it can make you sick" and as we see after he tell mj that he "doesn't love her" his powers start failing and when he goes to show his love at the cafe scene his powers come back so yeah the reason might be love

  • u telling me he made a whole theme song

  • Adding even more depth to one of the greatest films ever made?! And teaching me about PTSD while you're at it? Thanx Theory Maaan😊, you'll always have your very own Gargoyle reserved for you to brood on in my city.

  • The Blonde Spiderman isn't Toby but the Fat one was Toby also I thought it was because it was depression, he his Uncle was Killed a father figure was killed and he couldn't tell the love of his life he loved her although that only sorta cut the powers from him when he was at his most sad, it came back when Doctor Octopus robbed the bank it came back because he knew his Aunt was endanger and infact his powers didn't work in the bank because no matter depression is still there his body and mind was more concerned about Aunt May and when his Aunt was safe it stopped working and when Mary Jane was endanger his power came and once Peter and Mary Jane loved eachother it came back to stay due to being reassured and knowing that his love loved him back

  • F I did it

  • F

  • What I'm confused about is in the more modern movies of spiderman eg spiderman homecoming, he had to artificially make his spiderwebs as if he didn't have any power? That doesn't make any sense because all the previous movies show spiderman being able to shoot webs from his own wrists. So does he really have any superpowers at all? Sure he has immense strength but with enough time and effort, anyone can have that ability to be strong.

  • 🤝😘🐇
