During one of the pinnacle scenes of the film, Miguel O’Hara explains that every Spider-Man variant undergoes events known as “canon events,” or events that cannot be disrupted. They are always tragic, and they are always unavoidable.

During this scene, there are various images of different Spider-folk undergoing canon events, such as the death of Uncle Ben and similar characters. In this scene, Tobey Maguire’s Peter Parker can be seen tearing the infamous symbiote suit away.
