15 Reasonable Fan Hypotheses About Tom Holland In Spider-Man

Tom Holland first appeared in Captain America: Civil War in 2016, and has since played Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe alongside the Avengers as well as in independent films, beginning with Spider-Man: Homecoming. Fans enjoy the friendly neighborhood web-slinger, and Holland’s portrayal of the beloved character is no exception. It’s no wonder that some incredible fan theories have sprung up as a result of the show’s success.

Some theorists believe that Holland’s Spider-Man isn’t the first one to appear in his Spider-Verse. Others are more interested in Peter Parker’s link to Tony Stark’s E.D.I.T.H. eyewear (or did he?). Below are the 20 reasonable hypotheses about Tom Holland in Spider-Man.

1. Spider-Man Is Not The Only One Have Access To E.D.I.T.H.

Source: Marvel Studio

From Redditor /u/nearlyHERO:

“I’ve seen a lot of people online saying that their main gripe with Far From Home is that it doesn’t make sense for Tony Stark to spend millions on what could basically be a doomsday device, only to end up giving sole access to a hormone-fueled teenager. While I agree that would be ridiculous, I don’t think the EDITH glasses are the only point of control for the whole system.

When Peter first boots up the glasses and learns about their functionalities, he asks something along the lines of “Wow, he made all this for me?” And EDITH tells him “No, but you have access to it.” I think that means that other people, like Pepper Potts and War Machine, probably have their own way of accessing the system, but these specific glasses, this one access point, was made just for Peter.”

2. Peter Parker’s School Has A Link To Captain

Source: Marvel Studio

From Redditor /u/sigmanu69:

“So during the events of Spider-Man: Homecoming, Captain America is an international criminal. I found it unusual that the PSAs with Cap were still being shown in a public school in the US. The reason I find it unusual is that while public opinion of Cap may be divided, he is still considered an enemy of the state.

Therefore, it is unusual that an enemy of the state and international criminal would be promoted in a positive light within public schools in one of the main countries opposing what he took a stand for.

Seeing as how these PSA’s were most likely old and shown at almost every public school in the country (especially the Captain America fitness challenge video), these videos most likely would have been discouraged for further use through a directive by the Department of Education or pressure from high-level government officials.

So why would Peter Parker’s school still use the videos even after the government either discouraged or forced the stoppage of the videos? Because the principal, Principal Morita, is the grandson of Jim Morita, a member of the Howling Commandos (the elite unit that Captain America leads during WW2).

I think that the principal had heard stories of Cap, and decided to, in a way, honor his grandfather through keeping the image of Cap around.”

3. MJ Knew Peter Is Spider-Man For A Long Time

Source: Marvel Studio

From Redditor /u/0sc4ri0:

“So while rewatching Spider-Man: Homecoming today I noticed that during the scene at the Washington Monument MJ is standing right next to Peter as he talks to his suit. She remarks that her friends are in the Monument, which Peter replies to in an altered voice, but seeing as he speaks at the same volume as before, it seems that she would’ve heard him talk in his regular voice.

Now I’m not the first person to notice this, and most people have written this off as MJ being in shock and therefore not noticing, but I beg to differ. Not only is she shown as being very smart (what with winning the decathlon) but also somewhat obsessed with Peter (she points out that he quit marching band).”

4. Spidey’s Armor Has “Baby Monitoring Protocol” Activated

Source: Marvel Studio

From Redditor /u/bmanone:

“So I just rewatched Spider-Man: Homecoming and Far From Home and sorry if this has already been discussed but I tried to search for it but couldn’t find anything, I remembered at the end of the movie when Spider-Man’s identity is revealed, that in Spider-Man Homecoming when Spider-Man sees that Tony Stark restricted his suit with a bunch of protocols that one in particular “Baby Monitoring Protocol” recorded everything that Spider-Man saw. And he never actually disabled it.

Even then, it makes sense that Tony would ensure it’s always there for Parker, even if it’s a new suit that Parker makes himself. So it’s a possibility that when Parker built his new suit on the plane, that the “Baby Monitoring Protocol” was active. So he’ll be able to prove that Mysterio was lying.”

5. Wong Always Remember Who Is Peter?

Source: Marvel Studio

From Redditor u/jrfoster01:

“When Strange is trying to convince Wong to agree to cast the spell at the beginning of the movie, he walks through a portal and says, “Just leave me out of this.”

So Strange did what he asked. And Wong was an exception to the spell, and the spell was cast at the end of the movie.

Peter Parker still has one friend in Wong.”

6. Why Ned And Betty Break Up In ‘Far From Home’

Source: Marvel Studio

From Redditor /u/CodPolish:

“Ned and Betty as a couple were one of the best parts of Spider-Man: Far From Home, and were cute and hilarious. However, they split up unexpectedly at the end of the movie. I think I may have found the reason.

While the trip is in Prague, Peter comes to see Ned after the opera, and Ned says that the trip is done and they’re all going home. He is wearing a bathrobe. Betty then calls him into her room. This may at first glance seem innocuous, but in my opinion this hints that Betty and Ned had sex that night, afraid after their near-death experience, and worried because the trip was near-completion.

For whatever reason, that may not have worked out, and their relationship is in a constant state of decline after that. They don’t even embrace or anything while LITERALLY ABOUT TO DIE, so we can assume it had already gone downhill after that.

TLDR: Betty and Ned had sex and it was bad so they broke up.”

7. EDITH Works For Mysterio

Source: Marvel Studio

From Redditor /u/Joshieboy_Clark:

“In Spider-Man: FFH, Peter is given a pair of AI glasses from Tony Stark. These AI glasses are a huge part of the plot since it has billions of dollars worth of security protocols loaded into it. They were originally meant for Peter to use to keep Earth safe from any potential threat since Iron Man is no more.

When Peter first uses these AI glasses we learn the AI’s name is E.D.I.T.H., which is an acronym for “Even Dead, I’m The Hero.” A very bitter-sweet, Tony Stark-ish joke that encapsulates Tony’s personality very well.

At the end of the film, Mysterio uses E.D.I.T.H. for his great illusion to look like a hero in front of the world. After Spider-Man stops him and Mysterio dies by his own hand, the glasses are returned to Peter, and the end of the movie is carried out. Peter gets the girl and they swing off into the sunset. Happy ending, right?

That is, until the mid-credits scene. You all know what happened. Mysterio’s team sent out footage to the Daily Bugle revealing Spider-Man’s identity. Not only this, but Mysterio’s team doctored the footage to make it appear as though Spider-Man is evil, ordering drone strikes and murdering Mysterio.

Though it didn’t go down how he originally intended it to, Mysterio still achieved his ultimate goal.

Even Dead, I’m The Hero.”

8. Tom Holland’s Spider-Verse Links To Former Spider-Mans

Source: Marvel Studio

From Redditor /u/PollitoRubio22:

“So recently we got the news that Jamie Foxx would return as Electro. Now a lot of people don’t know this but he posted on his Instagram a picture of the three live-action Spider-Man’s looking down at the city with Electro’s face in the sky while he said “I am coming back.”

Now, he could have just used some cool artwork but him deleting this ain’t a coincidence. Because he got cast I am sure he already read the script so he knows what is gonna happen and that little teaser was intentional.

I don’t know if we would see the three live-action Spider-Man’s in this next movie but I think JK Simmons as J. Jonah and Jamie Foxx as Electro is establishing a multiverse and in the next installment, it’s definitely a possibility to see the three live-action Spideys.

I also saw a post saying it’s rumored Kirsten Dunst (the actress of MJ in the Raimi movies) and Dane DeHaan (the actor who plays the green goblin in the Webb movies) are in talks to come back for the next movie but I don’t know the validity of that rumor.”

9. Homecoming’ Has A Link To ‘Daredevil’

Source: Marvel Studio

From Redditor /u/Swervingwall:

“This is a long shot, and probably wasn’t even intentional. During the boat scene in Spiderman: Homecoming, Tony calls the FBI on Vulture. The FBI reveal themselves, aiming their guns at Spidey. According to others on r/marvelstudios, Daredevil season 3 is set around the fall/winter of 2017 which is when Homecoming takes place.

What if the FBI are corrupt by Fisk’s men, and after Fisk being informed of the situation, ordered his men to actually kill Spidey to prevent any other superheroes in NY from taking him down? For a moment they weren’t moving in, and didn’t seem like they were getting ready to arrest anyone.”

10. Peter Parker Gets Back To His Origins

Source: Marvel Studio

From Redditor /u/3kool5you:

“I love the new Spider-Man movies and MCU Spider-Man, and I think Tom Holland does a wonderful job. However, one of my main concerns about the MCU Spidey which many others share, is we’ve rarely really gotten to see him as a broke, working class kid struggling to get by.

There was a bit of this in Homecoming, but it really didn’t come through that much. Photography and struggling for money are big parts of Peter Parker’s character, and now that he’s in the Avengers and has all of Tony Stark’s tech, it seemed we would never get that aspect of Spidey’s character.

BUT now that Spider-Man/Peter Parker will be public enemy #1 going into Spiderman 3, I’m wondering if they could work him back to his comic roots. I think Peter will have to have a low profile, and Fury/Happy is going to advise him to publicly separate himself from the Avengers/Stark until things settle down.

They could also work in the photography-James Jameson relationship. Maybe Parker will go to Jameson and try to convince that he’s not Spider-Man, but friends with him, and he can get him pictures of someone else as Spider-Man to prove it.”

11. The Future Of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man

Source: Marvel Studio

From Redditor /u/c1cadaman:

I just saw Spider-Man: Far From Home and would like to write a little theory that my buddy and I developed. From this point out there will be spoilers to some extent but I will keep details from this movie vague. This isn’t so much of a full theory, but more speculation about the future of the Tom Holland Spider-Man series.

Reasoning: I was told that there are possibly going to be three trilogies for Tom Holland’s Spider-Man. The first trilogy will be the high school, then second college, and finally the adulthood trilogy. The first villain was the Vulture, the second was Mysterio, and hopefully the third will hopefully be Doc Oct. The sinister six is probably the biggest threat to Spider-Man.

Speculation: (Spoilers) The after-credit scene shows a video of Mysterio leaked saying that Peter Parker is Spider-Man and that he was the cause of all the crazy stuff that happened during this movie. In the next movie, Peter will face the backlash of the public and probably be hated. Someone will have to orchestrate this from the shadows, using the Daily Bugle as a platform to spread propaganda.:

12. Mysterio’s Death Is An Delusion

Source: Marvel Studio

From Redditor /u/OctavePuss:

“Consistency in glasses behavior – throughout the movie, Tony’s glasses consistently follow the same three basic rules that Google Home, Siri, or Alexa follow when interacting with a user by voice.

User-Initiated: A special word needs to be said–“Edith” in the case of the glasses–for the device to register a new command or a new question is being asked.

Context-Dependent: Some devices–Google Home for example–will listen for several seconds after a response for a follow-up command or question.
“Google, where’s the nearest hardware store?”
“Lowe’s Home Improvement is, 3.7 miles away.”
“How late are they open?”
“Lowes Home Improvement is open ’till 11:30 pm.”

Device Initiated: The device may ask a question of the user and wait several seconds for a response.
“Welcome home. Should I turn off the alarm?”

13. The Big Bang Theory’ Appears In ‘Homecoming’

Source: Marvel Studio

From Redditor /u/Ncom7794:

“In the beginning of Spiderman: Homecoming right after Peter is in the limo with Tony Stark he is wearing a shirt that I believe says “The physics is theoretical, the fun is real.” (It was hard to get a clean shot of the shirt long enough to read the whole thing).

In S3, E7 of The Big Bang Theory, Sheldon creates his own board game called Research Lab. The tagline for Research Lab is “The physics is theoretical but the fun is real.” So Peter’s shirt was Big Bang Theory merch. So show exists in the MCU and Peter Parker is a fan since he owns and wears the merch.

However, this is problematic (or meta, but probably more problematic) seeing as how the characters of the MCU are mentioned as fictional characters. And even the MCU itself is mentioned (Sheldon disses Iron Man 2 and compares the Norton and Ruffalo versions of the Hulk).”

14. A S.H.I.E.L.D. Member Wasn’t Impacted By The Spell

Source: Marvel Studio

From Redditor u/Happyweirdo16:

“So what if there is one person who remembers Peter? At the end of No Way Home to save everyone Strange casts a memory spell to erase everyone’s memories of Peter Parker. So in the movie, Strange says this spell will make sure everyone in the world will forget Peter Parker is Spider-Man.

This, in turn, makes everyone forget Peter Parker, but I had a thought: What if everyone in the world forgets Peter Parker means everyone on Earth but if they weren’t on Earth they’d remember, specifically Nick Fury. At this point, the Nick Fury on Earth is a Skrull and the real one is up in space setting up S.W.O.R.D. So what if Nick Fury remembers Peter Parker as he was off world when the spell happened?”

15. E.D.I.T.H. Wasn’t A Present From Tony Stark

Source: Marvel Studio

From Redditor /u/Bobby_Go:

“Okay, so this one might be a bit out there, but hear me out.

There’s something that’s always bothered me about Far From Home. Why would Tony use Fury, of all people, to deliver the Edith glasses to Peter? There are way better people to entrust that with. He had to have realized how risky it was for Fury to possess the Edith glasses. After all, Fury is THE spy. It just doesn’t make any sense.

On top of that, Tony never had time to bequeath the glasses to anyone, especially to Peter. Tony thought Peter was gone for good during the blip. When Peter came back they were in the middle of a battle, and that battle did not end well for Tony. There was simply not enough time to make any arrangements with Fury (who had apparently also been blipped).

So, what if he didn’t…

What if the Edith glasses weren’t a gift from Tony at all, but were from someone else altogether? Someone who was working with Talos and Soren from the very beginning. The Skrulls have a long history of being invaders in the comics (as well as a history of civil war), so it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to imagine that Talos’s “peaceful” demeanor was nothing more than a ruse in the Captain Marvel movie.”
