In December of 2021, the third instalment to the spiderman MCU franchise is set to bring more than one spiderman to the big screen. The Movie is said to become one of the most the jam-packed and exciting movie ever to grace the MCU, giving us a more in-depth look into the spider verse and what it entails. Tom Holland, Zendaya and Jacob Bantalon have all been confirmed to return, as well as Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange. Not much information has been given about the film as it is still in its early stages of production but actors such as Tom Holland and Zendaya have been spotted at the set of the film in Atlanta, Georgia.
Now let’s get on to whose set to appear in this action extravaganza. To start with, it is rumoured that we will be seeing 2 more Spider-Men appear in this movie with the actors being Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire – all who have played spiderman previously. Also, there will be returning Villains from both of their films – Alfred Molina and Jamie Foxx. They have already been cast as Doc Ock and Electro. There are many more rumours too, including Emma Stone to return as Gwen Stacey, Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane and Jared Leto to debut his role in the MCU as Morbius the Living Vampire. Charlie Cox is rumoured to reprise his role as Matt Murdock or to play Daredevil which will make that his first MCU appearance. There is also talk of Tatiana Maslany to make her Marvel debut as superhero lawyer She-Hulk. However, these are all rumours and could not even happen. We should get more news on the film in the coming weeks.
The storyline is not yet been established but there are many theories surfacing around the topic, one being that Doctor Strange will become Spiderman’s new mentor after the death of Tony Stark. Another theory is that the Multiverse has been tampered with by a Villain from another universe, bringing Doc Ock and Electro to Tom Hollands universe, establishing 6 Villains from spiderman rogue gallery, Doc Ock, Electro, Scorpion, Vulture and Mysterio. Also rumoured to appear is Kraven the Hunter, played by Jason Mamoa, completing the Sinister 6. This will lead Doctor Strange to travel through the MultiVerse and recruit the 2 other Spider-Men, so they can help Tom Holland defeat the sinister six.
However, this is only a theory and we still have many months to wait till the release, but I am looking forward to it and cannot wait to see what director Jon Watts has in store for us.
