What about the movie?
If you live under a rock or simply forgot how this trilogy goes, here’s a brief synopsis.

What makes Spider-Man: No Way Home a special movie for the story is the reveal of a spider-verse. Nonetheless, the movie has awakened several different opinions, while it looked too Disneyish for some, for others it was an emotional rollercoaster that honored the fans.
