1. Villains reformed

Sony
If you, too, found yourself wondering why no one will talk about a certain universe’s Uncle Ben or how the ongoing logistics of some of the flick’s plot devices work, you’re not alone.

7. Let there be more carnage

Sony Pictures
If Wong is the Sorcerer Supreme now, why does he need to fix fights like in Shang-Chi?

6. Shailene Woodley’s Mary Jane

Where is MCU Uncle Ben buried? He’s alluded to in Captain America: Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Peter has a suitcase with Ben’s initials on it in Far From Home, but Aunt May’s grave doesn’t appear to be next to his.

After the forgetting spell, would it ruin the whole spell if Peter told anyone he used to know about their history?

If it’s the former, then events in those timelines would have changed wildly. Norman Osborn would be alive after the events of 2002’s Spider-Man, so his son Harry would have no vendetta against Spidey. Harry wouldn’t have funded Otto Octavius’ research in Spider-Man 2, so Doc Ock would never have existed (although Ock’s accident could have happened anyway).

4. Into the Venom-verse

Marvel/Sony
It’d be less messy if they returned to their universes at the moment Peter left, but that would have been tough in a different way for Norman – his son would be dead, and who knows what shape his company would be in.

Let’s dive into all the big questions Spider-Man: No Way Home left us hanging on. (Note: We don’t necessarily have any answers.)
