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?

  • OMG that intro was sooo cute!!!

  • Pete TSD

  • What about the newer Spiderman with Tom Holland? He has no powers at all. He uses technology to be Spiderman. Can we get a film theory about that?

  • F

  • My mom said I can't watch spiderverse because she saw some guy say the movie was bad.

  • F F F

  • It's easy to forget Peter is human.

  • I liked neigbour girl!

  • Bill niy

  • #justiceforneighborgirl

  • How was this not obvious?

  • F for spider man

  • 2:25 Ha!

  • I love the theory man intro

  • F

  • I alr knew this bfore this vid


  • I lost my mustache

  • Knock knock! Who is it? Not your uncle! 😢😭😢😢😢😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😢😢😢😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😢

  • I watched this movie today, maybe his spidey sense went off for some time? He was sad and couldn't concentrate - talking about spiderman 2(just mentioning)

  • FFFFFFFFF ....I miss him...spider man I mean...he will come back...right

  • f

  • Lucas the spider is so cute

  • Was this theory needed, it is fair to assume this while watching it, since I was a kid and saw it for the first time I instantly picked up on this

  • F for spider man

  • He loses his powers because of he has natural powers unlike in amazing Spider-Man he didn't have web shooters but he has natural webs out of his wrist, if he gets to stressed out he loses his ability to use powers. Him losing m.j. he gets to stressed and he needs to save her which brings him back.

  • 0:27 They were dead the whole time!!!

  • Crap I have PTSD

  • Like if Into the spider verse is the best

  • i just thought he was depressed and couldnt deal with it, the doctor scene is one of the must human moments in a superhuman movie

  • Nice BloodBorne reference

  • F

  • Spiderman is the perfect source for memes

  • Okay why was 0:00 made? (The intro)

  • Not gonna lie, this made me appreciate Spider-Man 2 more. Thanks MattPat

  • I recently rewatched the harry potter series and realized that harry is also suffering from PTSD from all the "he who shall not be named" attacks.

  • I call dibs on the movie earnings if Theory-Man ever makes it big. *Dibs.*

  • Press 'f' to pay respects

  • F

  • F

  • Are you cookie from fibbage

  • I know seriously #Justiceforneighborgirl

  • Best intro ever!!!

  • Mat pat if Tobey Maguires Spider-Man universe was real you would definitely be a good therapist for Peter Parker

  • F

  • F

  • F

  • gimme this intro again

  • Is no one gonna point out the fact that they forgot to put the hyphen between spider and man in the title.

  • This sounds like me

  • now explain us why venom was still alive by the fire when he blew up the rocket ship

  • F

  • I always figured it had something to do with his mental health but was never 100% sure

  • You know that your theory doesnt actually expalin how the ptsd actually effects his powers

  • I always thought this was pretty obvious in the movie.. It wasn't *explicitly* stated, but it seemed heavily implied to me..

  • What a fucking stupid intro! Disliked right away

  • TFW you watch a Film Theory to learn something interesting about a movie and end up finding out that you have mental health issues.. awesome.

  • I mean this is pretty clear in the film the whole time. It's shown clearly that the trauma of his life falling apart is causing his powers to falter. The movie doesn't need to explain anything, it SHOWS it. That's the beauty of film being a visual medium.

  • #justiceforneighbourgirl

  • Maybe because the radioactive spider that was bit him had to be alive in order for his powers to work. And since im here can I suggest you do a video on the movie Coraline


  • 0:05

  • Spider-Man:I Don’t Feel So Good... Me: Maybe You Need A Rest? Spider Man GOODBYE cruel world... *Woosh Into Dust*

  • Peter lost his power because off pupety

  • Captain Marvel didn't tell the tesseract story properly!!!

  • F

  • What theme song is better Batman’s or Spider-Man’s theme song ? And seriously mate talk a little less detailed it makes it a little hard to understand what you’re saying and I guess powers are linked to your feelings it is one of the most heroic acts ever to save yourself aswell indeed😊👍🏻

  • I grew up on these movies. From childhood. I will tell you this now. He lost his powers cuz he lost the heart and the soul of who he was. He wasn't in touch with who he was. He didn't understand his destiny or his soul path. He was just a robot with cool powers. But close to the end where he gains them back. He became back in touch with his purpose. He wasn't just Peter Parker AKA Spiderman. He was Peter Parker the man with a purpose. The man who was MEANT to be Spiderman.

  • I need some mental superpowers in order to take care of myself, but i don't have em so i'm just gonna keep slowly but surely killing myself and hope for death to come sooner than later like most of the world does.

  • why dont we watch mattpats theory videos in science? he does test and analysis' and also sites his sources. Perfect projects.

  • This guys iq is 300

  • This has to be my favourite intro to a RO-tv video ever

  • That's why he cried so much lol

  • Hay theory man I just notesed that from the spider man movies and comics that Spider-Mans real villain in oscorp because oscorp is the only company that makes all the weapons and telolages for the villains that Spider-Man fights.For example,the reason why mr.negitave be came have deadly powers that oscorp tried to fix but failed and for dr.octopus that he hates him and for the others they got all of their weapons from oscorps men ,so that’s why oscorp is the real villain to the Spider-Man universe

  • RIP Spiderman

  • Great theory.
