No Way Home Can Finally Do The Spider-Man Story MCU's Civil War Failed To

Spider-Man: No Way Home can feature the comics arc Captain America: Civil War failed to tell using the Sokovia Accords. Existing as legislation passed by the United Nations, the Sokovia Accords serve to regulate the activities of enhanced individuals such as the Avengers. However, it's unlikely Spider-Man signed despite joining Iron Man against Captain America. However, it seems as though the Sokovia Accords could come into play once more now that Peter Parker has been unmasked. Finding himself in significant legal trouble, it's possible that the comics' fallout from Spider-Man's secret identity going public may finally be featured in the upcoming Spider-Man sequel.

At the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home, Mysterio outed Peter Parker as Spider-Man, exposing his secret identity to the entire world while making him look like a criminal and murderer. Now, trailers for Spider-Man: No Way Home have revealed that Peter will become wanted as public enemy number one. As a result, it's possible that violating the Sokovia Accords as an unknown vigilante could be a part of the charges laid against him, seeing as how it didn't appear as though Iron Man had Spider-Man sign the Accords in Civil War. If he had, the government would likely have already known his secret identity before the events of Far From Home.

Interestingly enough, despite the Sokovia Accords being a substitute for the Superhuman Registration Act in the comics' Civil War from Mark Millar and Steven McNiven, Spider-Man was hardly involved in that aspect of the MCU's version. Instead, the film served to introduce Tom Holland's take on the character, rather than seeing him unmask to the entire world as he did in the comics, a sign of his initial belief in the SRA and Iron Man, who led the pro-registration movement. Now that Peter has been unmasked by Mysterio ahead of Spider-Man: No Way Home, the MCU can finally provide elements of the fallout that occurred in the comics.

While Peter Parker was technically a minor during the events of Civil War, he could potentially be tried as an adult in violation of the Sokovia Accords at the beginning of Spider-Man: No Way Home. Furthermore, the comics saw Peter Parker's entire world upended after he registered and unmasked to the public. While that was his choice in Civil War, perhaps No Way Home will flip the script by having him sign the Accords after the public already knows who he is? It could be part of a deal that gets made, seeing as the trailers don't show any signs of Spider-Man receiving jail time.

While Spider-Man: No Way Home may be largely focused on the arrival of multiversal villains, it's still going to be interesting to see how Peter Parker will get out of the legal trouble that's coming his way. Signing the Sokovia Accords could serve as the means for Spider-Man to avoid prison while paying homage to the comics arc Captain America: Civil War ignored. All the same, he's probably going to need a really good lawyer to make that deal happen in the face of Mysterio's expertly fabricated evidence (fingers are crossed for Matt Murdock's Daredevil).
