5. Spider-Man: No Way Home

Even “the most anticipated movie of the year” doesn’t seem like a fitting enough title for Spider-Man: No Way Home. A film that was, in all honesty, one of the most anticipated of the decade, it vowed to finally follow through on the promise of the multiverse that its predecessor teased us with, using that film’s genuinely jaw-dropping cliffhanger to spawn a narrative that would see Peter Parker reach out to Doctor Strange for help in changing the timeline and making everyone forget that he was Spider-Man.

The subject of endless rumors about which actors and characters from Marvel’s past would surface throughout the movie, No Way Home had a reputation too big for even it to handle. Or at least that should have been the case. But it wasn’t, as the mammoth expectations ultimately fueled its success. Why? Because the movie was so good in spite of the returns of Doctor Octopus, Green Goblin, Electro, Sandman and the Lizard, not because of them.

As someone who has always wanted that little bit more from the MCU’s Spider-Man movies, this was finally the one that took it over that finish line for me. An emotional rollercoaster from start through finish, and full of nostalgic fanservice along the way, Spider-Man: No Way Home is truly the ultimate Spider-Man movie, and it didn’t just live up to the hype; it exceeded it.
