12. Doctor Strange
Benedict Cumberbatch rocks wherever he goes. This was just another example of him being awesome. Was this a good representation of Doctor Strange’s power and abilities? No. That said, that was the point.
Doctor Strange made Peter Parker look fantastic. It’s rare that anyone gets the best of the Sorcerer Supreme, especially when they don’t have supernatural powers, but that’s exactly what Peter did. Stephen Strange served as an obstacle for Spidey to overcome and he played that role well. Throw in his humor to the mix and we have an amazing supporting character.
Another underrated part is how this sets up Stephen for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Magic has a price and Stephen will be paying a heavy toll.
11. Happy Hogan
Happy Hogan is the same in every Marvel Cinematic Universe project. He’s a supporting character that’s used mostly for humor. Thankfully, he had more deep moments than normal in No Way Home. His interaction with Peter as Aunt May died and their talk at her grave were things we hadn’t seen much of before. We saw glimpses of this in Avengers: Endgame when Tony died, but that was it.
Acting isn’t what made Jon Favreau great. Nevertheless, he has excelled in his role of Happy Hogan. Hopefully, we’ll see more of him in Peter’s life in the future, even if the character is not able to remember him.
