No Way Home could ignite Peter and Black Cat’s romance
Following the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home and the overflowing multiverse in the MCU, Sony can make an optimistic Spider-Man his own Batman.
WARNING: The following contains spoilers for Spider-Man: No Way Home, currently playing in theaters.
We can safely say that following the events of Spider-Man: No Path Home, there is a huge possibility of what Sony can do with its wall-crawlers. The studio is set to continue working with Marvel Studios on Tom Holland’s adventures of Peter Parker after the mind-erasing spell across the multiverse, but there is hope of exploring the web heads. original Sam Raimi or Marc Webb movies as they are older and wiser. With that in mind, if Sony chooses to revive Andrew Garfield’s Peter, he can turn his Spidey into his own Batman.
Fans loved that all of the Spider-Men worked together, especially since it ended a lot of them. For Garfield’s Peter, in particular, he saved Zendaya’s GM and had to put to bed the mistake he made in Gwen Stacy’s death. He also regained his confidence through Tobey Maguire’s pep talk, believing he was amazing again, and he lost the streak of abuse he had had in the past.
So, after hearing others talk about love and being mentally healed, fans can see Sony giving Garfield another chance. The Incredible Spider-Man 3, which would open the door to her own Catwoman. This is none other than Felicia Hardy (aka Black Cat) of Felicity Jones, who was in the second film of a fleeting scene at Oscorp. While audiences never got to see her officially become Black Cat, Garfield’s return of Peter may revamp that and he and her strike up a romance – something the comics and cartoons have long insisted on. In this case, Oscorp could collapse after the Green Goblin fiasco, leading Felicia to become a corporate thief.
She would have the technology and in-house knowledge of her rivals, perhaps trying to bolster the image of the company or her own bank account. The latter would indeed make her a sympathetic villain, which is what the cat is to the bat in DC; although it may be more out of survival than ego.
That said, it does refresh the dynamic of love, as we’ve seen Mary Jane die over the years, and just as Bruce has turned his grief into something of hope, Peter can do the same to try and show to Black Cat the light. It would create an intriguing relationship, as he knows he would have to capture her, only for feelings to get in his way, as the two would see their missions derail via this cat-and-mouse game.
It would also make Peter a pseudo-sleuth on his trail, believing in the best in people and not giving up on them after working with the other Spideys in the MCU. After all, Bruce’s goal has always been to redeem Selina, to spot the hero inside. Ultimately, it fits with the fact that Jones’ profile continues to climb due to Star Wars: A Rogue One Story, where she played Jyn Erso, and Based on gender, where she played Ruth Bader Ginsburg. To top it off, this will give us a badass team with a hero and a thief, packing in the lightness and comedy that Matt Reeves’ The batman just can’t dive in with its dark, moody tone.
To see how Sony could revisit Black Cat after the multiverse spill, Spider-Man: No Way Home is in theaters now.
