  1. Because he’s seen the harm that can befall people, just for being associated with him. Both MJ and Ned have nearly died multiple times, and MJ still carries the injuries from the final battle. Aunt May did die.
    Even beyond physical harm, his friends have faced problems just for knowing him. Prior to the spell, both MJ and Ned were rejected from MIT just for knowing him, after the spell, both have been accepted.
    He just can’t put them back in that situation. By not bringing them back into his life, Peter hopes that they won’t face any more danger just from being close to him, that they can go to a prestigious college and live better lives. It’s a hard sacrifice for him to make, but he sees it as being the best thing for them.

    The entire plot of the movie started because the people closest to him were being negatively affected. MJ and Ned couldn’t get into college all because they were Peters friends.
    At the end of the movie we see that once the connection between Peter/Spider-Man is lost MJ and Ned are happy and they get into college. Now Peter was still going to tell them until he saw the bandage on MJ’s forehead.
    She only got that wound because she was trying to help Peter in his fight. Since Peter loves both MJ and Ned he decides that it would be better if he wasn’t in their lives and that this way they would be safe and happy.
    It’s something that we’ve seen many times in Spider-Man story’s. When Peter loves someone he usually has to let them go or watch them die.

  3. Some people say it’s because he realized they are better off and safer without him. Maybe, but my interpretation was different. I felt that Peter realized just dumping all that onto MJ would most likely just lead to confusion and heartache. I felt like he plans to get to know her again slowly, taking his time and maybe eventually reveal what happened, but only after he has built a new relationship first.
    Hopefully they will get back together somehow, unless Peter ends up with Black Cat which might be more interesting.

  4. How exactly would that go best case they think he is joking worst case they call the cops they would not believe his crazy ass story who would his best bet would be to become friends with ned again should not be that hard then slowly start spending more time with MJ and let her figure out he is spiderman then maybe tell her once she figures it out thats the best option

  5. Look at the movie, once the world found out he was spiderman, their lives were somewhat destroyed. I think he realized that at this time, it’s best not to put anyone in that spot , and the fact that no one , including his loved ones know who he is, makes him want to keep it that way as to keep them safe.

  6. Peter had a speech all ready to go but at the last minute he backed down after seeing that MJ was still wearing the necklace he gave her. Instead he started the long, slow process of getting to know her again.
    It would have been very awkward. “Hi, you don’t know me but I’m Spider-Man and I love you.” That would send most people running for the hills. Look at Gamora’s reaction to Peter Quill. And she knew that a future version of herself loved him.

  7. He didn’t tell her and Ned because they all went through a lot just remove the public information of the ture identity of Spider-Man. He even thought about telling her and Ned but he ultimately quits before doing so because he doesn’t feel safe because anut may died trying to help him during the green goblin ordeal in Spider-Man No Way home.
    On the creative side of things. There probably going to make isolated mcu Spider-Man movies from here on out. If Tom Holland returns to play Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe if signs another contract. They might do something new with his character. If I do remember awhile back ago the creative team from Marvel Cinematic Universe long before Spider-Man no way home. They had no intention of using the old villains or characters from the old movies.
    As of right now the future of mcu Spider-Man movies is unclear. Maybe they’ll return and maybe they won’t. That’s my honest opinionated take on this question. I this helps.

  8. I think Peter had a lot of reasons why he wouldn’t tell them, one of them was that the Thing he wanted – for Ned and MJ to be safe – had happened. They didn’t know who he was anymore so they couldn’t be involved. Also it’s one of the first times that MJ is excited about going to MIT and throughout his knowing her – he knows she fears disappointment, and that she’s rarely genuinely excited about anything. I think he also felt that it might be a) intrusive to tell them everything, and b) it might put them in danger if he does.
    It’s also sometimes the point of Peter’s comic arc – he deals with the consequences by himself.

  9. He could barely trust Ned when he first found out he was Spiderman, imagine trusting people who are now strangers to you.
    Also, people underestimate the emotional baggage that comes with this whole thing.
