    I coincidentally watched this movie last night then found this video today, and I just have to say that this was totally addressed in the movie and is far from a mystery. The 'chill doctor' identified that Spidey's lack of powers could be ascribed to his poor mental state, although he said so in the most layman terms possible. So I don't think this was a mystery, because I think the movie implied it through what the doctor said and how that connected with how Peter felt throughout the film (which was clear through events, his actions, his expressions). You really just expanded on that with the ptsd thing.

    He also lost his job at the start of the movie which has to put a lot of stress on peter because he’s always struggling to pay rent anyway

    This was all kinda blatantly shown in the film to explain his powers are affected by his emotions. So this isn't even a theory. You're literally stating something that was already known.

    This is super obvious. Clearly it was psychological but the movie never had to explicitly say it because it was shown without them ever saying it. Enjoyable video though!

    I feel like the creators weren’t thinking about ptsd when they made it mostly because it doesn’t show how bad it really is or maybe they just wanted to tone it down a little because ptsd is way worse then it shows I’m the movies and doing those little things don’t help that much

    You’re lucky you don’t get copy strikes. You’re a great channel and produce some of the best content, but you’re on ESreporter’s favorites list, if Pewdiepie incorporated half of this… he would be mega demonetized and someone would’ve tried to find connections to hitler in the color scheme or something dumb like that. Again don’t get me wrong nothing against you I watch and like all of your videos I’m against ESreporter’s favoritism

    This guy makes me cry every time he addresses mental health because he's so positive and empowering, but also understanding and compassionate. He just seems so acutely aware of the struggles people with mental health issues face and is one of the few I find who seem to accept it without judgement. Mat and the theorist gang, you guys are _amazing_ and you've helped so many people to find joy and meaning, myself included. I love you guys!

    this is the reason why most marvel films are shit today they don't bother with been deep or sad moments in there films, it's just fighting and talking about the heck we all know all the charters will come back to life in infinity war so who honestly cares if a charter like Spiderman dies.

    Matpat, as my first comment on any video, i'd like to say that i love all 3 of your channels (still waiting for the 4th). In this theory, i completely agree that his loss of power is due to some psychological syndrome, but not ptsd. According to mayo clinic the patient must not feel the effects of ptsd until 6 months after the event, and the effects last for months to the rest of their life, no matter how much therapy (which in Peter's case is very little). I love everything that you and Stephanie do, but i did feel entitled to try to correct this theory as i have researched this in the past. Keep theorizing!

    The reason why Spiderman suffers so much is the reason why I love it so much. The Spiderman from the first movie series, I mean. The newer Spidermen I hate because they are far to over-the-top . The original Spiderman you can relate to and you see vibrant humanity in him. The new ones are either over-the-top dark like in the second movie series or funny, quirky, bubbly like the one in Spiderman Homecoming. Say what you will about the newer Spidermen, including the one from Disney, they are just too over-the-top in my eyes.

    This...actually makes a lot of sense. I always felt like it was connected to Peter's feelings. Spider Man was, to be blunt "getting in the way" of Peter Parker's life, he didn't WANT the responsibility so his powers began fading. It wasn't until he accepted the fact that he NEEDED his powers to protect his friends and family that they return in full.
