Abstract (300 words maximum)

Spider-Man: No Way Home is a well-received superhero film released in December 2021. The movie centers on a young Peter Parker keeping his personal life together while facing multiversal threats with help from multiversal allies. The film is the end of the MCU Spider-Man trilogy that manages to include characters and narratives from the previous Spider-Man reboots; as such, the film is a sequel to all three Spider-Man movie sagas. This film’s central theme focuses on the burdens of a young man becoming a true superhero, or more famously known as “with great power comes great responsibility.” In this presentation, I will analyze the screenplay written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers and detail the film’s conflicts and character arcs, as well as other vital aspects of the screenplay and film. I will also compare and contrast the screenplay to the final theatrical film and discuss how the differences affect the overall story. Finally, I will address how the writers integrate into this new saga aspects of the stories from previously unconnected Spider-Man films. This film is an entertaining and complex triumph that earned overwhelmingly positive reviews from fans and critics alike, and this presentation will attempt to demonstrate the screenwriters’ role in that triumph.
