Like, like if you were stuck in a burning building, I could tell you where to go because there'd be screens around me, and I could swivel around them, 'cause I could be your guy in the chair!||„|

Avengers: Infinity War
When Thanos and his forces decided to invade New York to collect the Time Stone, Peter asked Ned to cause a distraction while they were on a field trip to MOMA. Ned did so, allowing Peter to get dressed into his costume and help Iron Man fight Cull Obsidian and Ebony Maw. However, the Mad Titan Thanos succeeded in his goal of collecting the Infinity Stones and causing the decimation, which resulted in the deaths of Ned and countless millions across the universe.
Spider-Man: Far From Home
- It's theorized by many fans that Ned might become the Hobgoblin in Spider-Man: No Way Home, since his character becomes such in the comics. This theory is further hinted by a brief story on Instagram made by Tony Revelori (the actor of Flash) used to market Spider-Man: No Way Home, in which Ned is seen alongside Betty in a poll on who's a worse person and the iconic orange hood of Hobgoblin is seen painted on Ned's head.
- Further more, Jacob Batalon, Ned's actor, admits that while he enjoys having Ned as a good person, he would very much enjoy the prospect of getting to play as Hobgoblin should Ned ever become such.
