It can be almost as dizzying as being Spider-Man himself to follow the news about Tom Holland’s third Spider-Man film.
The movie features actors from all three of the live-action Spider-Man shows of this century, and Marvel may be planning something much wilder than that.
However, as it’s unofficially called, Marvel runs the risk of Spider-Man 3 biting off more than it can chew. Fans think there’s a way for the movie to accommodate all those alleged cameos, but will the upcoming movie be the nice Spider-Man 3, or will it be another unwieldy mess like the Spider-Man 3 of 2007 was always accused of being?
In the new ‘Spider-Man 3’, who is known to be?
Several sources have confirmed breathlessly that all three actors who played Spider-Man in the 21st century, including Tobey Maguire, who starred in ‘Spider-Man’ (2002),’ Spider-Man 2′ (2004) and ‘Spider-Man 3’ (20007), and Andrew Garfield, who starred in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ (2012) and ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ (2014). Per Screen Rant, their casting has not been confirmed, nor is it certain that, even if they are in the movie, they will play their version of Spider-Man.
What Sony/Marvel has stated is that, after playing him in Spider-Man 2, Alfred Molina will return as Doctor Octopus, while Jamie Foxx’s Electro from The Incredible Spider-Man 2 will also feature.
So, even if the appearances of Parker/Maguire do not materialize, all three series of Spider-Man will be portrayed in some way.
More likely, the latter seems to consider how Spider-Man: Far From Home ended.
A cameo appearance by J was included in the film, which was the last MCU movie. Jonah Jameson, the news magnate and Spider-Man hater of all things, played by J.K. Simmons, who appeared in the series Tobey Maguire.
That was a brief cameo, however. So are Doc Ock and Electro going to be cameos as well, or are they really the villains Tom Holland has to fight against?
How do fans think it can treat all these characters?
The idea of ‘Spider-Man 3’: Peter Parker will go on a path to “It’s a Wonderful Life”
Reddit fans debated different possibilities about how the movie could handle all the Spider-Men and their villains if they were indeed going to all be together in one big pot.
Fans tend to think this is going to be more or less a live-action take on Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and when you have Doctor Weird for the ride, that’s easy to do.
One fan said, “I think Doctor Strange is going to fly through [the]multiverse and all these characters are going to show up briefly. It’s going to be such a ruse by Marvel.” In other words, as long as J., they’re going to stick around. Jonah Jameson – enough to say “yay,” to the fans, but just not enough to hold their luck up.
But another fan has indicated that the villains, not the heroes, are the endgame. “At this point, it’s getting stressful.
Jamie Foxx and Alfred Molina are the only confirmed actors returning.
They play the same characters as before, so it’s unclear if they’re going to be different versions of the characters or not, but I hope they’re going to be.
It is such a crazy jump to believe that Toby or Andrew or someone else from the previous series is going to be in it.
Obviously, they’re building on Sinister Six, not Spider-Verse.
Is Marvel Stuffing too full for Spider-Man?
Whatever Sony/Marvel has planned, some fans will be disappointed – not only because such an ambitious concept could easily go off the rails, but also because there’s already a feeling in his own movies that Spider-Man is something extra. While fans praise the work of Tom Holland in large part, they complain that the films have gone overboard in tying him to other characters, particularly Iron Man.
They’d like to see more freedom from Spider-Man.
But with fans and studio marketing plans begging for crossovers, that’s becoming increasingly difficult. Superhero films in general become unsustainable because they have too many antagonists.
Fans thought it was the original Spider-Man 3, when our hero fucked up with Sandman, the new Green Goblin, and Venom. With Doc Ock and Electro in the mix, the new Spider-Man 3 now runs the same risk.
It might be too much of a good thing if multiple Spider-Men are then added to the mix, although many MCU fans obviously can’t get enough, particularly without a Marvel product after a year.
