The movie Spider-Man: No Way Home cast became the talk of Marvel fans around the world, after the first trailer was released. The appearance of Spider-Man’s enemies from the previous film made fans excited and suspected that actors Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield would join Tom Holland. In addition to the rumors above, there are also rumors about Peter Parker’s best friend (Tom Holand) in the MCU version of Spider-Man, namely Ned. Reportedly later, Ned Leeds, who is a close friend of Spider-Man, will become a villain and an enemy to the spider-man.
Fact About Spiderman No Way Home
Moreover, the latest trailer shows more of Ned becoming the MCU Hobgoblin in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Like the return of the Green Goblin which is the forerunner of the Hobgoblin which is thought to be Ned later. Here is Ned’s MCU theory, Spider-Man’s best friend can be evil for various reasons:
Ned Can Steal Green Goblin Gear and Formulas
In Marvel Comics, the Hobgoblin is directly linked to the legacy of Spider-Man’s greatest nemesis, the Green Goblin. The original hobgoblin, Roderick Kingsley, obtained his weapons and gear from the secret hideout of the dead criminal Norman Osborn.
Instead of completely separating the characters and making Hobgoblins and weapons of their own, Marvel could pass on that connection to Spider-Man: No Way Home. If so, it could be that in one of the parallel universes of Spider-Man 3, Ned is the villain who came to the Green Goblin arsenal.
He can then put on a new costume and start a crime with the Goblin Glider and the Osborn bomb. Like Roderick Kingsley, he was able to obtain the same formula that enhanced Osborn’s physical abilities and use it for himself. Ned can go crazy, which would make him a dangerous enemy of Spider-Man in his universe. It could even be a rival is another iteration of Peter Parker, played by Tom Holland.
Ned Can Be Brainwashed Into Hobgoblin
Perhaps the best approach Marvel has taken and the one that makes the most sense is for Marvel to adapt Ned Leeds’ Hobgoblin story from the 1980s. In the comic books, Ned is a good man Peter trusts, but his life takes a turn for the worse when he discovers the hideout of the real Hobgoblin villain, Roderick Kingsley in Spiderman No Way Home
Needing someone to take the blame for his crimes, Kingsley captures Ned and manages to brainwash him into thinking he is a Hobgoblin. This plan was initially effective for Kingsley, who insisted that his secret identity remain hidden from the world.
Even Spider-Man is tricked into falling for Kingsley’s lies, trouble arises when Ned’s brainwashing causes him to become mentally unstable. It wasn’t until years later that Spiderman No Way Home that Ned was framed by Kingsley and he was never a Hobgoblin at all.
Ned could have a similar experience, he could be kidnapped and brainwashed by the MCU’s Roderick Kingsley, a new version of the Green Goblin, or the unidentified main villain of Spider-Man 3. Unlike Ned’s comic books, the mental conditioning he goes through can mold him into a useful pawn from a much bigger threat.
This would make Ned’s Hobgoblin a sympathetic and misunderstood villain forced to fight Spider-Man and possibly even Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch). Since the comic book version of Ned Leeds and the MCU characters are both inherently good guys, Spiderman No Way Home could theoretically use the same storyline as Ned that audiences are already familiar with rather than pulling him out of the multiverse.
Since this option involves brainwashing, it won’t go against his character development. There are problems to come if Marvel takes this route, the biggest of which is that it would risk damaging the MCU’s Ned Spider-Man character.
What Marvel did with Ned in the comics was arguably one of the most tragic endings ever given to any of the Spiderman No Way Home cast and characters, largely due to the fact that Ned’s life was ruined. He died without anyone believing his innocence, it would be a shame if Marvel offered such a sad and similar ending for such a delightful character. That’s why it would be great if Ned’s rumored Hobgoblin arc in Spiderman No Way Home became an interesting one-off story set in an alternate time.
