Tom Holland’s Spider-Man appears like he’s in bother, if the revealed title for the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Spider-Man 3 is any indication.
Introduced on Holland’s Instagram, the title for the third installment of the Marvel-Sony franchise is formally Spider-Man: Cellphone Dwelling. The subtitle falls proper in step with the excessive school-themed Homecoming and Euro trip sequel Far From Dwelling, and creates much more distance from Peter Parker’s residence of New York Metropolis. (Additionally, good E.T. nod.) However the place is the webslinging Avenger this time?
Primarily based on casting stories that neither Marvel Studios nor Sony Footage have but to technically affirm, Spider-Man: Cellphone Dwelling will see Spidey sucked up into the multiverse. The pivot to an precise multiverse comes after Mysterio pranked the world into considering there have been different planes of existence in Far From Dwelling … just for audiences to study via a post-credit scene cameo by J.Okay. Simmons’ J. Jonah Jameson that possibly all the pieces is related (and that Peter Parker is Spider-Man — however that’s a wholly completely different can of worms). After Evan Peters’ Quicksilver from the Fox X-Males movies confirmed up on WandaVision a number of weeks in the past, all cross-franchise shenanigans appear believable with Marvel Studios answerable for its properties as soon as once more.
Cellphone Dwelling is claimed to shift Physician Unusual into the fatherly position Tony Stark crammed again in Homecoming, and cord in villains from far past the MCU, together with Jamie Foxx’s Electro from The Superb Spider-Man 2 and Alfred Molina’s Physician Octopus from Spider-Man 2. There’s been no formal casting or announcement of a key villain, however rumors have circulated that collection director Jon Watts’ dream of bringing Kraven the Hunter may very well occur. (So cross your fingers he’s searching Spideys via the multiverse.)
Spider-Man: Cellphone Dwelling, presently filming in Marvel’s residence base of Atlanta, Georgia, is as soon as once more directed by Watts, who has the uncommon honor of helming each installment of a single MCU hero franchise (and he’ll step up once more for a non Sony Marvel film, Incredible 4, within the not-so-distant future). Like your complete Marvel film calendar over the past 12 months, theater availability and state-to-state re-openings amidst the COVID pandemic may change plans in a flash, however for now, Spider-Man: Cellphone Dwelling is ready for a Dec. 17, 2021 launch date. Not less than Sony and Disney really managed to strike a deal to make it occur within the first place.
