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?

  • *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

  • Thanks: I will balence the universe. Spider Man dance's. Thanos:I give up

  • Finally I’ve been waiting for this🙀

  • F

  • I loved the beginning part!

  • In one of those three poster spidy was putting up a... bad finger?

  • You forgot the hyphen between 🕷️ and👨

  • Me and the boys in a game theory vid


  • 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.

  • 🤝😘🐇

  • Me:Mom can we get Spiderman? My mom:We have Spiderman at home Spiderman at home:THEORY MAN

  • Matpat: superheroes have there own issues me: I never knew losing a little loved one was an issue

  • What is with the creepy weird music in the like..background of the audio in this video ? I didn’t even hear it until I put in headphones but even with those it isn’t immediately noticeable

  • 7:36 me and the bois making an appearance in game theory

  • YEET is all im ganna say shoot i just said all that to

  • When I was really young i had a dream about a green spiderman and now here he is

  • F

  • F

  • Finally, somebody agrees with me, because I keep saying that the first three spider mans were like my favorite Spider-Man is because I really only watched those and they don't like.

  • F

  • For not huuuuuge marvel fans did you know that spider man didn't need the spider bite to become spider man and he lost his powers because his inner power was weak

  • -------'

  • This video just made me realize that I probably need to address some concerning things, thanks Mat!

  • 7:36 me and the bois

  • Me and the boys giving Spiderman PTSD

  • Not gonna lie Theory-Man's Design look sick

  • Thanks man. I really love how your mind works. Thank you for your service.

  • I am proud that I already knew this film theory 😎

  • Make a theory about spider man into the spider verse

  • F

  • F

  • Didn't they explain this in the movie with that one scene with his doctor?


  • __________ l_________l l________ l. _____l l___l

  • Spooder man and the spooder verse

  • i saw that musical live and it was ok ok.

  • Matt repeatedly calling self care heroic was really moving for some reason. I struggle with mental health issues and I guess I just wasn’t expecting such a positive message about an issue that affects me personally.

  • Idea to solve ant may’s accents, her parents faked it so she would learn how to talk British

  • Duh ...

  • But i dont get why the new spiderman (tom holland) doesn’t have powers tho

  • F

  • Sand man didn’t really kill Ben he asked for ben’s car and the crook at the wrestling place grabbed the gun that caused the gun to shoot the killed Ben

  • Your theme is a rip off of the old theme

  • F

  • what makes no sense is that peter parkers eye sight gets better when he becomes spider man when spiders have horrible eye sight

  • f

  • I think the concept of the him losing his powers was based on the spider that bit him. He soon gonna be a spider monster.

  • Peter Parker is not a crybaby, he has PTSD, now shut up Tobey Maguire haters

  • Do da do electric


  • I understood that tenacious D reference

  • Upon reviewing of this movie, gotta say, Mary Jane is kinda a dick...

  • Uhhh it actually was explained in the movie , the doctor explained it to him , he said that you need a strong focus on what you want because when you don’t you start forgetting who you really are as a person , aka identity crisis

  • He lost his powers because he doesn’t believe in himself a lot of things say it

  • Well in cartoons and comics he loses his powers because of his spider powers evolving to a giant spider

  • This is a great video in both the Spider-Man aspect and the personal aspect. This has inspired me to tackle my own anxiety and engage in some self care. Thank you MatPat!

  • I thought the film made this obvious.

  • If i had a neighbour that made me mean chocolate cake we'd be making out before you can say "holy web-swinging Batman"

  • You know I just thought that he struggled with his identity, like should he be Peter or Spiderman. If he's not Peter he can't be with his friends and family and if he's not Spiderman he can't save the people. He saves the kid in the fire as Peter and I think the reason why his powers won't come back at that time is that he doesn't wanted them to come back. I think he wanted to do this as Peter Parker. But then when he talks to the fireman he learns that some other people died in the fire. And I think his facial expression just gives us his thoughts: If I'd been Spiderman, I could've saved them all. And then he has to save Mary-Jane again and he knows that normal Peter Parker can't do it, so he wants the powers to come back, because he knows that with great power comes great responsibility. And the problems of him accepting his fate are gone.

  • i f him 3000 edit: wait a secon-

  • F

  • f

  • There is another theory of why Spider-Man loses his powers and regains them. Just watch Everything Great about Spider-Man 2 from CinemaWins

  • His powers were not feeling so good

  • F

  • F

  • I kinda feel like this was obvious in story and didn’t need to be explained.

  • It would have been better for he story if he could only save one

  • Nice intro

  • F

  • I find it strange how his web shooters stopped working. They ARE just technology. edit: I haven't seen that movie. sorry.

    • StoryTimeDuo nah the Toby Maguire Spider-Man’s actually come out of his body so yeah.

  • 0____________0

  • F

  • F

  • im not a hater but yeah dont overthink it cuz spiders need to eat their webs to poop them out again and i guess they are just eating their own poop wich is why peter isnt doing it

  • F for my bb Spidey, eyen though I seen Endgame. F until it comes out on DVD.

  • F

  • Has not made a spider man vid in. A few months Spider man: where did that bring you back to me
