Plot: In the previous Spider-Man film, Peter Parker was revealed to be Spider-Man and was accused of murder. Peter’s friends and family are in danger because there are now people who hate him so he goes to Doctor Strange to cast a spell to have his identity concealed again. When Strange is casting the spell, something goes wrong and it causes the entire multiverse to collapse. Villains from other universes who have hatred for Spider-Man including Green Goblin, Electro, Doc Ock, Lizard, and the Sandman are now all on the hunt for him and now know his identity. Strange and Peter can send them back to their worlds but it will kill them, Strange is ok with that but Peter isn’t. Strange and Peter clash over ideologies and they clash with the villains.
