Universal Fans Calling ‘No Way Home’ the Live-Action Spider-Man Attraction Film

in Universal Orlando


If you have ever been on The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man at Islands of Adventure in Universal Orlando Resort, you may have noticed that the plot of the attraction looks a little similar to what Marvel and MCU fans can expect in Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Now that the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer has dropped, fans cannot wait to see what will happen in the film. The third installment of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man follows the success of Spider-Man: Far from Home (2019) and Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017). The film will debut on December 17 worldwide; however, U.K. audiences will get an early preview with a December 15 debut date.

As we have recently noted, the trailer which debuted yesterday confirmed that with the opening of the Multiverse, Spider-Man will be facing villains from a variety of Spider-Man universes – including Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s previous villains.

Thanks to the most recent trailer, we can see that Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock, Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin, Jamie Foxx’s Electro, plus Thomas Haden Church’s Sandman character, and Rhys Ifans’ Lizard from alternate universes will all return. In the film, we will also be able to see Tom Holland (Peter Parker/Spider-Man) and Zendaya (MJ) joined by Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Stephen Strange), Jon Favreau (Happy Hogan), Marisa Tomei (Aunt May), Jacob Batalon (Ned Leeds). We did not, however, see Tobey Maguire or Andrew Garfield in the trailer, so their appearance continues to remain a mystery.

Typically, we see Spider-Man face off with one main villain in the films, or maybe two at most. Still, to see four of them confirmed in one film, with the potential of more to come, it seems that Holland’s character is quickly overwhelmed with the abundance of evil that he must face all at once.

When riding The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man, the Spider-Man in the attraction seems to be well-equipped to face off with five major villains, even when they team up. In the ride, Guests join the web-slinging hero as he defeats Doctor Octopus, Scream, Electro, Hydro-Man, and the Hobgoblin. Although we do not have the exact same villains overlapping in Spider-Man: No Way Home, many theme park fans are already beginning to call the film the live-action rendition of the Universal attraction due to the carousel of villains that appear!

Jonathan (@futureman116) had Universal vibes right away!

Anybody wanna ride the amazing adventures of spider-man after that trailer?
@UniversalORL you in? #SpiderMan #universalorlando

ben (@CinnabonOmaha) noticed the similarities as well!
What if the two multiverse Spider-Men in No Way Home are actually the one from the Universal Studios ride and the one from the Hostess cherry pie ads?

Season of the Grinch (@AxelRadman) is ready for a live-action of the attraction:

can’t wait for No Way Home pretty sure it’s gonna be a live action version of the Amazing Spider-Man ride in Islands of Adventure

Of course, the film will have its own story in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, one that director Jon Watts was rewriting while filming, but it does have some similar qualities to the attraction! In another universe, perhaps Holland could use a hand from the attraction’s Peter Parker; he clearly has dealt with this before!

The official description of Spider-Man: No Way Home reads:

For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero is unmasked and no longer able to separate his normal life from the high-stakes of being a Super Hero. When he asks for help from Doctor Strange the stakes become even more dangerous, forcing him to discover what it truly means to be Spider-Man.

What do you think? Are there similarities between the ride and the film?

Want to see Star-Lord/Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), and Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) some more? What about Loki? Spider-Man: Freshman Year will soon be coming to Disney+ (among other announcements such as  X-Men ’97, What If…? Season 2, Echo, She-Hulk, and Agatha: House of Harkness); click here to watch today!
