If these unconfirmed reports are to be believed, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield could repeat their Peter Parker roles in a crossover fans have long dreamed of.
For now, however, much of this discussion is hearsay and what is crucially missing an official word from Sony or Disney to give credibility to the broader story.
So what’s really going on here? RadioTimes.com is here to untangle the web …
Will Spider-Man 3 be a live-action Spider-Verse crossover?
Little was known about Tom Holland’s Spider-Man 3 until some highly unexpected news came out in early October.
The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Jamie Foxx would repeat the role of classic Spidey villain Electro, a character he played in Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
As fans know, the film is set outside of the current MCU continuity, meaning Foxx will either play a new incarnation of electro or move from another universe.
While we can’t rule out the former possibility, this casting seems a bit too random to turn down, especially given Marvel’s previously announced plans to introduce a multiverse in the upcoming Doctor Strange 2.
Foxx’s casting alone was enough to make fans speculate, but those conversations jumped to the next level when THR dropped another Marvel bullet just a week later.
The industry trade confirmed that Dr. Strange by Benedict Cumberbatch will also appear in Spider-Man 3, which provides more evidence that the film could find its way across the multiverse.
If that wasn’t enough, the director of Doctor Strange 2 is none other than the legendary Sam Raimi, who directed the first Spider-Man trilogy with Tobey Maguire.
It was from these closely related stories that the rumor of a Spider-Verse movie with live action grew. A number of small pop culture websites reported that Maguire and his successor Andrew Garfield are about to sign up.
However, it would be wise to take these reports with a generous pinch of salt as they all come from unknown sources and some could be entirely made up. It happens.
This does not mean that these rumors are false, just that they do not yet have significant backing. Investing too much could lead to bitter disappointment.
In this section you will find official confirmation of the Spider-Man 3 cast.
How did the Spider-Men cross?
While we’re not sure yet if there’s actually a live-action Spider-Verse movie on, it’s not hard to see how the rumor caught on given the direction the MCU is headed.
The upcoming Disney + original series WandaVision is likely to tackle the idea of alternate realities as the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) uses her powers to create an idyllic sitcom setting for her and her Android partner.
Kevin Feige, Marvel Studios chief honcho, previously stated that the events of WandaVision will lead straight to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, where Olsen will also star. One popular theory, therefore, is that the highly anticipated miniseries could see the Scarlet Witch use her reality-distorting abilities to open the door to alternate universes.
The chaos that could lead to it would be unlike anything the MCU has ever seen before, and it would likely fall within the remit of the chief wizard to restore order to the multiverse.
It would be especially bleak for Peter Parker as many fans have assumed that this crossover could unite the Sinister Six on screen for the first time.
With Foxx’s Electro already confirmed, the line-up could include Michael Keaton’s Vulture, Michael Mando’s Scorpion, Bokeem Woodbine’s Shockers, Donald Glover’s Prowler, and perhaps even Jake Gyllenhaal’s (currently presumed dead) Mysterio.
With a force like this, it might take three Spider-Men to stop whatever they’re up to, especially since Doctor Strange will likely have bigger fish to fry …
