MCU Spider-Man Watch Order: Peter Parker’s Journey to No Way Home
Tom Holland’s first solo film as Peter Parker arrived on the big screen a year later, in 2017. Spider-Man: Homecoming properly introduces us to Peter living the high school life at Midtown School of Science and Technology. We also get to meet his best friend Ned (Jacob Batalon), his potential love interest Michelle (Zendaya), and ongoing antagonist Eugene “Flash” Thompson (Tony Revolori).
Spider-Man: Homecoming depicts Peter’s struggle to balance his time as an ambitious wall-crawler with his day-to-day activities, even as an unexpected new MCU villain emerges in Michael Keaton’s Vulture. The movie ties to the wider Marvel universe by utilizing the Chitauri alien technology seen in The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron, and by including appearances from Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, and Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan.
Avengers: Infinity War
Peter Parker next popped up in the 2018 MCU blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War, which was filmed back-to-back with the concluding part of the Infinity Saga, Avengers: Endgame. Tom Holland was a key member of the first film’s massive cast, and portrayed Peter Parker as a new member of the World’s Mightiest Heroes in their fight against Thanos.
The mad Titan is out to collect all six Infinity Stones in the big budget movie, and is also on a quest to kill half of all life in the universe. Peter, Tony and Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) travel to Thanos’ homeworld with the Guardians of the Galaxy in a bid to remove the Stones from Thanos’ possession.
Holland shows up again as Spider-Man in 2019’s massive MCU showstopper, Avengers: Endgame. Though Peter Parker sits out most of the movie, which includes a time jump and a complex time travel plot, he does feature in the cast. In fact, Infinity War and Endgame are both pretty essential viewing if you want to fully understand Peter Parker’s next Spider-Man solo outing!
Endgame focuses on the remaining Avengers’ efforts to undo most of the damage done by Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War. This includes getting the gang back together for one last Hail Mary mission, and Holland co-stars with Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Paul Rudd, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Don Cheadle, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, and Danai Gurira.
