Plot change

Just after Peter Parker / Spider-Man came back to New York City, J. Jonah Jameson plays footage that frames Peter for Quentin Beck / Mysterio's death and reveals his secret identity to the world. He is found not guilty thanks to Matt Murdock, but people still believe he killed Beck. This makes his life very difficult, and he and his Aunt May are forced to live in Happy Hogan's apartment. Peter, MJ, and Ned apply for college but their applications are rejected because of Peter being Spider-Man. Peter goes to Doctor Strange and asks him to cast a spell to make people forget he is Spider-Man. He damages the spell by changing it too much, however, making it so that people from other universes who know he is Spider-Man come to this universe. On Queensboro Bridge, Peter finds an administrator from the college he wanted to go to and tries to get her to accept him and his friends' applications. However, Doctor Otto Octavius / Doctor Octopus arrives on the bridge and attacks Peter. Octavius is defeated, realizing that this Peter isn't from his universe.

Suddenly, Norman Osborn / Green Goblin attacks them both. Before they can fight, Peter is brought back by Strange, who has already caught Curt Connors / Lizard. He tells Peter to capture the villains who came through. Peter finds Max Dillon / Electro and captures him with the help of the Flint Marko / Sandman, who Peter also captures. Osborn is retrieved after going to a F.E.A.S.T. building seeking help. Strange wants to send them back to their own universes, but Peter wants to cure & help them before sending them back in order to prevent their deaths. He frees them and traps Strange in the Mirror Dimension after a fight, taking the villains back to Happy's apartment. Peter cures Octavius by using Stark technology to replace his broken neck chip. He makes cures for the Osborn and Dillon, but the Goblin persona takes over Osborn before he could be cured. The Goblin then tricks Dillon into attacking the others and the other four escape. After beating Peter in a fight, the Goblin kills May and escapes. Meanwhile, MJ and Ned learn how to open portals using Strange’s Sling Ring which they use in an attempt to find Peter, only to find the Spider-Men from the villains universes. The Peter from Osborn, Octavius, and Marko's universe is called Peter-2 and the Peter from Connors and Dillon's universe is called Peter-3.

Peter is found by Ned and MJ, who comfort him. The other Spider-Men tell him their own stories and encourage him to fight in May's honour. They make the cures for the villains and meet Marko, Connors, and Dillon on the Statue of Liberty, with Ned and MJ following them. The villains are cured, with Octavius and Strange arriving to help them. Before Strange can send them back, the Goblin attacks and blows up the spell. MJ is knocked off by the explosion and nearly falls to her death, but Peter-3 saves her, bringing him closure for not saving Gwen Stacy. An angry Peter attacks the Goblin and nearly kills him, but Peter-3 stops him. The Goblin then stabs Peter-3. Peter injects him with the cure, restoring him to a regretful Norman. Strange stops the spell and sends everyone back by making everyone forget who Peter is. Peter later tries to tell MJ the truth, but cannot bring himself to do it. He visits May's grave and vows to carry on.

In a mid-credits scene; Eddie Brock sits in a bar and talks with Venom about other superhumans and the recent events that occurred in this universe. He suddenly glows and is transported back to their universe, leaving a part of the symbiote on the counter.
