‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Keeps Peter In the Closet Story

The film, now available for purchase on most streaming platforms, is all about the moral panic that results when people find out who Spider-Man/Peter Parker (Tom Holland) really is.

It shows how difficult it is for young people who have to hide their identities from peers, family, loved ones, and authority figures.

The movie asks you to sympathize with Peter’s dilemma. Then, in line with Disney’s and Hollywood’s longstanding, nervous homophobia, it asks you to forget it.

The movie begins with conspiracy theory tabloid merchant/Alex Jones analog J. Jonah Jameson (J.K. Simmons) revealing to the world that Spider-Man is Peter Parker.

He falsely accuses Peter of murdering the supervillain-posing-as-a-superhero Mysterioso (Jake Gyllenhaal).

The revelation sparks a massive moral panic; Peter’s school is staked out and his home is vandalized.
