That connective tissue came through in some interesting ways in No Way Home, which included some sweet, subtle, and slick DNA pulled straight from the hit Spider-Man PS4 video game. The 2018 release, simply dubbed Spider-Man, was one of the most acclaimed games of the year and a recent remaster for PS5 has only solidified its place as one of the best video games ever made. It also holds the crown as the fastest-selling first-party game in Sony history, with a staggering 3.3 million units moved within the first three days of release. Not to mention the follow-up, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, is also a massive hit in its own right.
Spidey has a hit animated kid’s series, and the wall-crawling comics continue to top the charts for Marvel. Spider-Man: No Way Home is one of the biggest films in box office history, the Spider-Man video game series is one of the biggest hits of the modern era (with a sequel on the way), and the Spider-Man video game series is one of the biggest hits of the modern era (with a sequel on the way). However, with so much Peter Parker saturation, those components have begun to flow into one another.
By now, millions upon millions of fans have spent weeks, months, and years swinging around New York City as that virtual version of Peter Parker, and the game has become such a touchstone that No Way Home couldn’t help but dip into the web-slinging well and borrow a few elements along the way.
