Venom is the VICTIM! ►
We've seen a lot of Spider-Man lately. Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and soon Spider-Man: Far From Home. Before that we saw Andrew Garfield slinging webs with Emma Stone for a couple movies, but I want you to think FURTHER back. That's right, I'm talking Tobey Maguire Spider-Man.
Remember how at the end of his first movie EVERYTHING had gone wrong? Norman Osborn - the Green Goblin - was gone, his best friend was fatherless, Uncle Ben did what all Uncle Ben's do, etc.. It was all very sad. In Spider-Man 2, we see a Spider-Man without his powers. I want to talk about WHY he lost his powers. What made our friendly, neighborhood Spider-Man just plain, old Peter Parker?

  • Theory on the moon landing. Fake? or Real?

  • damn i dint knew i had PTSD i have all those as well (*_*)

  • Along with the Spider-Man hype we also just got Spider-Man far from home

  • What the hell man I was looking for the movie spiderman far from home. Why did it show up with this

  • Hold UP THERE buddy, it's not Toby Maguire, it's Bully Maguire

  • Theory Man His enemy are the VR Games

  • The reason why he lost his powers was because he didn't pay his rent.

  • Not going to lie Matt, this video was so lackluster. These are all just obvious facts spelled out for you by the movie itself. Hell even if this were a valid "theory" as if people didn't know this already, you failed to explain anything. It felt like you were starting something, but then just left it at that. No real convincing evidence other than what was spelled out by the movie itself. Maybe its time to take a break. Or maybe just stop theorizing and let others take your place. Your videos have been slowly degrading in content man.

  • Dude the new ghostbusters 3 is coming not the girls but the 1o y $

  • They didn't explain that in the movie because they showed it with their great story telling. That's what makes this film better. Show don't tell.

  • Pizza time

  • Pizza time

  • I cannot remember what video did this but I remember a video from a few years ago that explained this exact same thing.

  • Hey mat-pat can you please do the strongest incredible, but including jack-jack and scenes from incredibles 2 aswell?

  • For some reason I do not like Spider Man 2

  • Yes, neighbor girl


  • Actually, it's explained in the movie, and CinemaWins clearly points it out. Aunt May says that keeping something like Love bottled up inside can cause a lot of problems. Every time Peter loses his abilities is when he sees MJ with JJJ's son. I can't explain it, just go watch CinemaWins' videos on the Toby Maguire trilogy. Also, Tony Stark has PTSD

  • Hey Matt you should make a channel dedicated to comics comic theory. What do you think?

  • My theory: earlier in Spiderman 2 when Peter is meeting with Octavious for the first time, Otto gives him some advice about MJ “you can’t keep that love balled up inside of you, it’ll make you sick”. When Peter misses MJ’s play and then sees her boyfriend with her, it must really crush him emotionally.

  • It's erectile disfunction

  • F

  • #justiceforneighborgirl

  • Ahaha hahahahaha

  • I can’t find the F button

  • f

  • *Theory...... Busted*

  • I just want to review for my test until I saw this video

  • F

  • The Film Theorist Mat there is a season 4 teaser for rick and Morty check it out and please make a theory and there's a major link between two shows in the teaser. People please like so mat see this

  • Y'know, I haven't been on board with your latest theories, but this one makes alot of sense. And I like it. Other theories like "Disney Death Count" aren't really theories, more like just counting mortality rate. This however is a theory, and a good one. I feel as if the writers of Spider Man 2 actually intended this message, unlike other theories where I feel MatPat is overanalyzing and going WAAAYYY off course

  • F

  • It made me kinda mad when he called Venom a demon and not an alien

  • Geeeeeettt Duuuuuuuunkkkeedd Ooooooooonn!!! Quote Sans Undertale

  • So what bout that new spider man movie

  • Pizza Time

  • Why did his powers remain for the two year period of the first Spider-Man and the second Spider-Man? Why didn't they cut out on him before?

  • F

  • This reminds me that none of those movies never had happy ending even if he is a super hero :'( 1 like = +1 happyness

  • Matpat, Seriosly, thanks. this video told me the name of the illness im dealing with but didnt know the name of, which is Emtional trama. Gonna google best ways to heal. 😏😏😏

  • F

  • P i Z z A t I m E

  • I pressed f

  • With great theories comes great responsibility

  • anyone else at 10:30 whos speaks spanish or whatever language that is on Uncle Ben's grave plz tell me what it says

  • F


  • So I found out Tobey Maguire has played two characters with PTSD

  • And when he said he needed to give himself some self care at 11:04 the tissues weren't there for drying tears 😂😂😂

  • Goblin Glider right to the dick!! Judges say 10/10

  • May pat can you make a video on how sir Mellyodas is thousand of years old but doesn’t age ( the Netflix show 7 deadly sins) who else wants to see that pls like

  • I loved this theory!!! Thank you MatPat

  • 15 years not 17

  • F

  • Make a theory on scale mermaids are real

  • do the Wilber conspiracy theory from Jacksucksatliffe

  • F

  • U used the amazing Spider-Man 2 suit for more than half of this vid

  • *presses F*

  • *#JusticeForNeighbourGirl* LOL 😂...

  • I never watched any of the Spider-Man movies

  • Mat pat not to be mean but he lost his abilities because he didn't feel like a hero anymore because he wasn't with mj. The power of spider boners people.

  • Original trilogy is good writing but Tobey Maguire is a horrible actor!

  • F

  • I got it today PS4 PS4

  • #audition

  • he had no pizza time

  • Hey Matpat! I have a suggestion for a series to watch and theorize about! It’s called ENDRO! And it’s a fluffy cute anime that also involves time travel so I think it would be fun to theorize about

  • Theory Man!! Theory Man!!

  • F

  • Boycott Disney!!!!

  • Is it true that Disney has attacked your videos?

  • F

  • F

  • Alright mat pat just play spider man 2

  • I will never watch the original Spider-Man in the same way...

  • Maybe it was erectile dysfunction you never know

  • I just realized I fill all the check list for ptsd Guess I finally know where all my symptoms come from

  • If there's one thing I hate, it's when people use pictures of Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man when talking about Tobey Maguire's. Or vice versa. Next theory should be why aunt may has a bit of an english accent.

  • Umm...the Sam Raimi Spiderman movies were god awful! Stop smoking the ganga MatPat

  • F

  • he is not dead he will be in spiderman far from home

  • Pizza time!

  • And this year is still good for spiderman i mean we got far from home with the fire trailer

  • I thought it was supposed to be obvious in the movie...

  • You are ruining my life Pat.

  • Um at the end there that was a game theory suit, not film theory. Also could you please start selling those as Halloween costumes

  • F

  • #JusticeForNeighborGirl

  • 4:04 my favorite part

  • 1:42 is that... BEN REILLY!!!?

  • Can you investigate the MCU movies to find out who the hidden skrulls might be?

  • Wow. This whole time he had peteySD

  • Well they released a new one LOL

  • F

  • This is explained in the movie when he goes to the doctor
