‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Writers ‘Have Answers’ To Plot Hole, But Can’t Release Them Yet


The ending of Spider-Man: No Way Home leaves a seemingly large plot hole – one that the writers say they have the answers for, but tell us they’re not allowed to divulge right now.

The following contains spoilers for Spider-Man: No Way Home!

In the “No Way Home” climax, Doctor Strange casts a spell that erases all memory of Peter Parker from the world. During the IGN Fan Fest, fan Trent Sening asked the film’s co-writers Eric Sommers and Chris McKenna what happened to the physical evidence that Peter Parker was Spider-Man after this spell was cast.

Interestingly, the writers say they have an answer to this question, but can’t say what it is, leaving the inevitable further question of whether it matters to future MCU films.

One of the reasons to leave the film’s apparent plot hole comes down to the simple purpose of this ending – the writers wanted to focus on the human consequences of Peter’s decision rather than spend more time explaining the intricacies of it.

We’ve talked about it a lot,” McKenna explained, “and we can’t divulge much, but just know, there’s been a lot of talk about it. And I will say that in answering these questions towards the end of the film, I felt that it would be too much to explain in this film. So I hope it’s one of those details that I think would be too long a bridge for us to explain in this movie. But we have thoughts and answers.

We thought a lot,” Sommers agreed. Will it be something like “Back to the Future”? Or will people disappear from photos? Will physical objects disappear? All these things. And, as Chris said, ultimately we decided that it would take so much time and real estate in the film to explain all this. It would just distract from the emotions.

Perhaps more intriguing is why McKenna and Sommers can’t talk about these answers even after the movie’s release. “Trust me, we have the answers to this,” McKenna repeated, “but I don’t think we… We’re not allowed to divulge this. But we have the answers.”

When FanFest host Akim Lowenson said he was now considering a Back to the Future approach, Sommers said, “You can work with it until you get new information.”

It’s not clear if this means new information will emerge, but it certainly remains an open possibility.

It also raises the question of whether this spell affects the versions of Peter Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. Again, the answer is inconclusive, but McKenna and Sommers say they’ve been mulling over ideas on how to show this:

Believe me, we talked about it, and we really had ideas about ways to demonstrate the effects, if there were any,” McKenna explained.

Chris and I were even tempted,” Sommers continued, “we wanted to maybe introduce a tag where you could see something: “Oh, what happens if this guy comes back and everything changes, isn’t that fun?” But then again, we didn’t want to be distracted by the emotion of what was going on with our Peter Parker.
