However he will get his revenge, sending doctored footage of the climactic battle framing Spider-Man for his loss of life to Jonah Jameson at The Each day Bugle. The footage additionally reveals Peter’s secret id as Spider-Man to the world.
Spider-Man: No Method House picks up within the aftermath of that devastating reveal. Per the official premise:
For the primary time within the cinematic historical past of Spider-Man, our pleasant neighborhood hero is unmasked and now not capable of separate his regular life from the high-stakes of being a Tremendous Hero.
