Spider-Man rumor that No Way Home’s team Spidey may distract us from real surprises


On Tuesday night, November 16, Sony will finally unveil the highly anticipated second Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer for December 17.

Given that Sony has created a live media event around a two- to three-minute trailer and promises “big surprises,” Spider fans on social media see it as some sort of victory lap and are anticipating. the event with confirmation of the long-rumored appearances of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield as previous Sony Spider-Men as well as Charlie Cox reprising his Netflix role from Matt Murdock / Daredevil.

New “evidence” of “leaks” from No Way Home, including questionable set photos, has dominated Twitter for months, suggesting that rumor and leak sites have surpassed Sony and Marvel Studios at their own game this time around. -this.

But here’s the thing, when it comes to information and especially disinformation about its productions, I always assume that Marvel Studios is always one step ahead of the field, and that at present, the world knows what Marvel Studios wants to know his films.

Marvel has made marketing and maintaining real surprises in their films an art form, and while some MCU followers firmly believe the internet is beating Marvel at its own game this time around, I wouldn’t be at all shocked if the Maguire / Garfield / Cox rumors are his game, and the obsession the supposed “leaks” have created on “Will they or won’t they?” could be a deliberate sleight of hand and a strategic distraction to control the film’s other surprises.

Marvel Studios knows the final act of the magnum opus of Avengers: Endgame is now the measure by which all of its greatest films will be measured, and No Way Home director Jon Watts (himself in the process of finishing his own Spider-Man trilogy) didn’t shy away from the comparison, referring to the “big” movie as “Spider-Man: Endgame” in an interview with imperial review.

And the comparisons are obvious, with Tom Holland’s Peter Parker threatened by villains from Sony’s other two Spider-Man film series, including Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock, Willam Defoe’s Green Goblin, Jamie Foxx’s Electro (among others). , and maybe even Tom Hardy’s Venom, which would logically require some helping hands to defeat them all, hence the appearances of Maguire and Garfield.

It’s very similar to Endgame in one respect, but unlike Endgame in another important way – we’re already seeing it all coming. The iconic moment of Endgame and a streak that will not be soon forgotten by anyone who saw it on a crowded theater opening weekend in late April 2019 was the surprise call from the returning heroes of all over the MCU for the final battle with Thanos.

And with the Multiverse not only the centerpiece of No Way Home but also the central concern of Marvel Studios in general in 2021, perhaps the question we should be asking ourselves is not whether Maguire and Garfield will appear, but who other could show up for the final fight?

Keep in mind that Sony has already made connections between its live-action movies and the 2018 hit animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. And whatever arrangement Sony and Marvel Studios put together, judging by the look of the Morbius trailers and the post-credits scene from Venom: Let There be Carnage, the lines between the Sony Spider- pours and the MCU fades away as we can’t fully anticipate.

And this is all a very long way of saying that it is entirely possible with the Multiverse in play and at its disposal, anybody from Marvel’s and Sony’s vast catalog of spider characters could appear in an Endgame-style appeal finale.

Who? We dig deep into the Marvel Comics to highlight some intriguing possibilities that may not be so well known to MCU devotees, but which would be greeted with gasps and applause from Marvel Comics readers in the game. public.

May “Mayday” Parker / Spider-Girl

A longtime fan favorite character from an alternate Marvel Comics future, The spider girl, the teenage daughter of Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson-Parker makes a lot of sense considering that Spider-Man 3 from 2007 was 15 years ago and Tobey Maguire is 46.

Marvel Studios loves its young heroines, and Maguire showing up with a superhero girl creeping in her father’s footsteps would be a moment to remember and automatically create a heartwarming, instant backstory to the original Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy.

Flash Thompson / Agent Venom

As part of the comic book story of Venom, Flash Thompson (who was an injured veteran) was paired with the Venom symbiote to become an overpowered government agent and even joined the Guardians of the Galaxy for a short time.

Tony Revolori’s alternate version on The Flash was a bit underdeveloped but ended on a sympathetic note in the final moments of Far From Home as we learned that his bullying bluster was due to a lack of attention. of his well-to-do parents.

A Revolori / Flash multiverse as Heroic Agent Venom would be cool and give Revolori a spotlight moment that the first two films didn’t give him, or alternatively if you like, actor Joe Manganiello (you know him as Deathstroke from the 2017 Justice League post-credit scene) was Tobey Maguire’s Flash in his first feature film role and he would make an interesting meta-callback as Agent Venom that fans of superhero movies and comics would respond to.

Ned / Hobgoblin

While the unnamed film – Ned owes more to the original Ultimate Marvel character Ganke Lee than to its namesake, longtime member of Peter Parker Ned Leeds’ original social circle, his brief romance with Betty Brant in Far From Home is a callback to Leeds, which also has a history as the sometimes villainous the Hobgoblin, a kind of counterfeit / homage to the Green Goblin.

Ned’s role in the film (played by Jacob Batalon) is best known for being Peter’s “dude in the chair” assistant and best friend, but Tom Holland has hinted that the film is an emotional roller coaster for Spidey, and seeing a multiverse Ned as a murderous Hobgoblin on the villain’s side would be a punch and a big surprise for fans.

Miles Morales

This one is extremely obvious. While Sony may have to act quickly and freely showing its face not to commit to a particular actor assuming they inevitably want to take Miles to years of live action, Miles’ presence in the MCU of base was already established in Homecoming (played Donald Glover as his uncle Aaron Davis, who mentioned he had a nephew).

Considering his great notoriety in comics, animated films, TV shows, and games, a costumed Miles would be all that would be needed to send moviegoers into a frenzy.

Spider woman

Although not part of the “Spider-Verse” per se (her powers and her origin have no connection with Peter Parker), Jessica Drew would be recognizable by a good number of moviegoers given that her old series of drawings 1979 anime has been available on Disney Plus for over two years and its profile in the popular New Avengers Comic Revival from the 2000s.

Again, having an actor appear as Spider-Woman (only part of her face is covered in her well-known costume) could complicate Sony’s long-term plans for the character, who is currently Jessica to make her appearances. Animated debut in Into the Spider-Verse sequel is said to have been voiced by Insecure actor Issa Rae.

And on that note …

See above. Spider-Man’s long-standing love interest / sometimes opponent, the Black Cat, would be greeted with cheers, but it would require Sony to put a face on the character.

Miguel O’Hara is another longtime fan favorite character from a different alternate future than where Spider-Girl came from, but he has a costume that would be instantly recognizable to many fans with even a little knowledge of the bands. drawn.

Additionally, he’s also appeared to moviegoers in a post-credits scene in Into the Spider-Verse voiced by Oscar Isaac, Marvel’s new Moon Knight, and a clear nod Sony has plans for the character.

And finally…

Ghost spider

As much as Maguire and Garfield’s return would be Spider-Man fan Nirvana, imagine if Ghost-Spider got into the fight, took off his mask, and Emma Stone was underneath?

A multiversal version of Gwen Stacy, Marvel, and Sony have established the character wherever they can except live-action for the past few years.

Ghost-Spider has appeared in comics, video games, and numerous animation projects including theatrical film Into the Spider-Verse voiced by Hailee Steinfeld (the MCU’s new Kate Bishop), Marvel Rising animated series voiced by Dove Cameron, and she is one of Spider-Man’s titular “Amazing Friends” along with Miles Morales in the new Disney Junior animated series.

Speaking of Miles Morales. read about it became a surprise cornerstone of the Marvel universe.
