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?

  • (bird box spoiler warning) (kind of) hey Matpat, you should have Austin come over to the film theory channel and make a theory on bird box and how the birds survive and if it's possible. Also if there's actually an explanation on how they successful navigated the woods at the end in blind folds. Only tripping twice.

  • The real mystery is why is Spiderman and Nick fury alive in far from home when thanos killed them.

  • Goblins?

  • *Spider-Man

  • Really? a theory? on this? didn't you watched the freaking movie?


  • 4:03 Did you have to dunk on andrew garfield im still not over that death aNd I doNt waNt tO tAlk aBoUt iT :'(

  • Loved the intro 😂❤

  • #iamspiderman

  • I thought it was because he didn't know who he wanted to be

  • This is the hardest thing spiderman has to go through... you can't save everyone.

  • aunt may is a scroll


  • Do a video on YOU plz

  • So his physiology changed because he was sad? thats like going blind because youre depressed wtf

  • *TheoryMan... where he shoots his webs of science!*

  • Can you make a video on the Star Wars fan film debacle and if it would be possible for him to make a case?

  • 12:08 Madame web much?

  • So I noticed that the blast from Thanos at Thor in Infinity War looks very similar to the Bifrost. HEY MATPAT CARE TO ELABORATE???!!!!

  • Hi-top Films did a good video on this topic as well. “The Importance of chocolate cake”

  • How’s there going to just not be a spoiler alert on this video? Thanks for that.

  • Matpat keep doing 10 minutes videos not 20

  • Hay mat check out the rick and morty season 4 teaser there might be something you might find interesting

  • 8:27. pulling that stunt in that part of the movie actually hurt tobey maguire

  • Can you do a film theory on Bandersnatch/ black mirror as a whole? It isn't as deep as FNAF or DDLC but still interesting.

  • It’s cause he starts being selfish and stops thinking like a hero , so something in his mind de-activates his powers .

  • What? Was this not obvious? I thought Sam did a good job showing that particular character arc in the movie. It's like wisecrack always says, showing is better than telling

  • Pleaseeeee do a film theory on The Princess Bride!!!

  • i honestly think it's just because he started to lose his faith in them

  • F

  • Awesome

  • Peter Did Not Die In Infinity War He Was Trapped In The Soul Stone

  • Dude theory about Spider-Man far from home takes place before or after Affinity War

  • I got a theory for ya, if my fiance and I love each other why did he leave me?

  • 9:56 Yes! I completely agree! #justiceforneighbourgirl !

  • I'm in this picture and i don't like it.

  • F

  • I actually thought that the reason he lost his powers was from mental health but you just gave me the solution to the theory ive been thinking about

  • Can you please do a theroy on lamas with hats it's a CS-tv series and I would really like you to do a theroy on it ok thank you for acknowledging this comment sincerely - mr.narwall24579

  • He lost his powers cause that lady never paid for the pizza

  • my favorite spiderman is theory man

  • f

  • Make a video about the effect that the disastrous events Infinity War (and the other Avengers movies in general) would have on all the other people on Earth.

  • Or you could just read the comic that deals with this very issue

  • Because he’s a dummy

  • :( que Spiderman 4

  • well im never gonna fall asleep ever again

  • really though the spider man game was amazing I already beaten it and wow it’s good

  • All i thought about his loss of powers was what my dad told me (who is very well educated in the field of super-heroes). I was told that he lost the because he didn’t believe he could beat Dr. Octopus. His lack of belief that he could succeed made it so his body thought so as well.

  • That....might be the BEST theory i've seen you do.

  • #justiceforneighborgirl

  • And I’m already tracer

  • This is like school 😨

  • The movie all but spells it out for the audience that it was STRESS that caused him to lose his powers, and when he regained his confidence they came back. It was never a mystery, everyone should've understood it.

  • Matpat did an OOPSIE

  • Star vs the forces of evil Plz

  • You talked about all of the great spider man things that happened this year, and I think this might have been one of the worst for spider man for one reason. Rip Stan lee

  • I'm sorry he said 2018 wasent good 4 him yet he got a baby pat

  • You should do a theory on, is Chicken Run a revolution or not, my class is doing this as a experiment, I say it’s not but I want to see if I’m right.

  • F

  • F

  • Lazarbeam: bullshit scientist Matpat: video game and movie scientist

  • Can you do a theory about Salvation season 2 ending i wonder what the ”asteroïd“ really is

  • Good job matpat you figured out the most obvious piece in a movie that came out 14 years ago

  • Please do bird box next

  • And yes I'm challenging you

  • F

  • That intro was cringy and wholesome. I love it TheoryMan

  • Let's see who is the best theorist

  • Find the identity of HowToBasic creator

    • Let's see if you are the best theorist

  • This Is so dumd

  • f


  • F

  • *_Spider-Man has depression_*

  • NO FUCKING SHIT! That’s literally what’s implied in the movie, if not ptsd then just major emotional problems.

  • F

  • This was shit

  • They literally explain the the movie why he loses his powers. Otto says that if you keep love bottled up it'll make you sick.

  • F

  • Bullshit, the movie did explain it but not by dialogue, but by actions and scenes. Peter didn't lose his powers but he just couldn't use them cause of his mental problems but it was extreme stress, sadness, etc. He lost his opportunity of being with MJ, his best friend hates him(and Spider-Man of course), he also lost a job, then he tells Aunt May what happened with Uncle Ben but then May rejects him and he has problems to go to class and gain money. Thanks to all of these moments of his life he just rejects to be Spider-Man because Spider-Man makes his life awful and makes Peter look like a jurk to his friends and family. But in the moment we're his and MJ's life are at risk, he decides to come back to save the day!! ( Oh and I want to say that the dance of Spider-Man 3 is an oposite moment of the walking scene of Spider-Man 2)

    • Then again, it is just a theory

  • Matpat I have a question. You know how Thor’s hammer, only people who are worthy can pick it up. Do you think that One Punch Man could pick it up

  • Nice intro theory man

  • F

  • *do a young justice theory I'm begging you*

  • I always thought this was kinda a no duh thing.

  • He didn't lose his powers. He fell from a building over 30 ft tall and landed on a car, and just walked it off. His powers were there but just supressed.

  • When he said self care and I saw the box of tissues I lost it

  • #justiceforneighborgirl

  • Spider-Man isn’t dead tho, the new Spider-Man far from home trailer came out today!!

  • F

  • Peter SD

  • Do a Bird Box theory!

  • F

  • This has to be one of my favorite videos 1:04 ps or maybe spoiler he's 100% not dead

  • F

  • Before watching the video. Because he lost self-confidence.

  • Trying to figure out who is Spiderman’s parents

  • Same with itachi unlocking his sharingan after experiencing a traumatic event when Obito kills his teammates😱😱

  • I have one question for you matpat. How does one punch man got so strong and if i could be strong as him.
