Spider-Verse rumors incinerate social media as Sony attempts to put out the fires.
At this point, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield in Spider-Man: No Way Home is the worst-kept secret in cinema.
Of course, that was the case in Fall 2019 when I scooped it first.
Many people scoffed at it then, but one by one various sources dropped the leaks; my report was essentially confirmed.
It hasn’t stopped.
Marvel Studios has been trying to avoid the multiverse topic for No Way Home.
They haven’t been successful.
First of all, Alfred Molina admitted that he’s part of the film as Doctor Octopus from Sam Raimi’s 2004 Spider-Man 2.
Secondly, Jamie Foxx is Electro from Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in 2014.
This pair of castings proved the story’s multiverse angle.
Other than that, the whispers of Maguire and Garfield coming back grew louder; they’d return as their versions of Spider-Man.
Furthermore, in Maguire’s case it could be last hurrah as a proper exit for his character.
Jon Watts’ Spider-Man No Way Home reeled in Tom Holland, Zendaya, and Jacob Batalon back for the movie this December 2021.
Notably, the sequel also adds Benedict Cumberbatch to return as Doctor Strange, whose next solo film is about the multiverse.
Sam Raimi directed Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness; he made the Maguire Spider-Man trilogy.
Sony Pictures Argentina recently accidentally posted the official title card for Spider-Man: No Way Home in Spanish in video format sooner than expected.
The title card was immediately deleted.
Twitter user Cesar Berardini captured the video before Sony removed it.
As the video shows the Spider-Man: No Way Home title, it glitches for a split second before it ends.
Sony Unable to Stop Spider-Verse Rumors
It’s actually difficult to get a split-second capture of what showed in-between the title card. But we saw it ourselves.
It’s still the same title but size and color does change.
Sony deleted it.
Was it too revealing?
Even the Twitter user suggested the rumors about the multiverse and the Sinister Six are true.
People are now speculating, and it’s not hard to see why.
The title card glitch may seem like a confirmation that the movie will indeed dive into the multiverse.
After all, the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse trailer featured a similar sequence.
Moreover, Tyrese Gibson again claimed Morbius is set in the MCU; Sony’s storm troopers shut him up.
Where there’s smoke, there’s fire, and this continues to generate heat.
