The new trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home has arrived, fluctuating a whole Willem Dafoes worth of banter and Easter eggs on the internet and piles up dozens of questions about the multiverse, Tom Holland‘s tenure as Peter Parker, and the conspicuously absent Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. Perform the janky spell you need to erase all that from your mind at once. None of that matters here. Amidst the theories and speculations surrounding this new trailer, the only one that matters to me in any way is the actual hell, Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) means when he tells Peter, MJ (zendaya), and Down (Jacob Batalon) to, quote, “Scooby-Doo this shit.” I’ve cracked the numbers and come to this line from all angles, and the only conceivable scenario here is that Doctor Strange has actually never seen Scooby Doo and just say things to say things. We simply can not trust this man.
As (for the most part, with a bunch of dose blur and some really wild editing) revealed in the trailer, the general plot of Spider-Man: No Way Home involves Peter asking Strange to whip up a spell to clear his secret identity – revealed to the masses at the end of Spider-Man: Far from home– from the general public. But thanks to a relatable combination of Peter’s social awkwardness and constant desire to touch shiny things, the magic goes awry, tears a hole in the structure of reality, and heralds supervillains from alternative timelines; namely Doctor Octopus (Alfred Molina), Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe), Elektro (Jamie Foxx), and Sandman (Thomas Haden Church). It is at this point that Strange instructs Spider-Man to “Scooby-Doo this crap”, a phrase he apparently uses to mean “clean up this cosmic mess” and / or “send these supervillains back to the alternative dimension from which they came. ”
I’m currently stuck in the multiverse of madness that decipheres why you would use Scooby-Doo as the analogy here. The primary, Scooby-Doo has been known for since 1969 reveals monsters that turn out to be harmless older men trying to scare teens away for a valuable reason. The character usually achieves this by running in sheer horror away from the threat next to his troubled human friend, who is Mt. Everest high at 50 mg Acapulco Gold at any time. The most generous explanation for Doctor Strange’s aggressively strange metaphor is that Scooby-Doo is technically “solving problems”? The least generous read is that Doctor Strange is a huge dumbass in any field that requires interaction with other people, but is also driven by the type of hubris that makes a man make confident, loud mistakes. This almighty wizard really used “Scooby-Doo” as a saying meaning “successfully perform a series of physical challenges against monsters that are real.” What in the world is trying to relay to his distant son hell? It’s like pumping someone up to kick a battle-winning field goal by saying “Charlie Brown this shit.”
The line is also fascinating in relation to the MCU as a whole and no it is not sarcasm. This franchise has created such an indelible identity on pop culture that its plan is even recognizable in its marketing. The “Scooby-Doo this crap” moment follows all the rules; it’s the part of the Marvel trailer between big, high (spoiler-free!) crashes where we get a bit of teasing. The score drops to an undercurrent, a quarrel is thrown, and “please Scooby-Doo this crap “stick throws us back into the fight. That intimacy is so hot a blanket for longtime MCU diehards, it takes a few seconds for the words”Scooby-Doo is not a related analogy, especially in the context of this giant epic superhero movie“to repeat in your head like an air raid siren. It almost feels like an experiment; it feels like Marvel to see if their aesthetics are finally all-encompassing enough to just throw some nonsense into a trailer without anyone noticing.
In conclusion, the line makes no sense, and Doctor Strange is clearly Mephisto in disguise. He would have gotten away with it if it were not for these mixed kids. Spider-Man: No Way Home coming to the cinema on December 17th.
