Tom Holland could pay homage to a famous meme in Spider-Man: No Way Home. The following contains potential spoilers. In other words, you’ve been warned.
The insider claimed:
Spider-Man: No Way Home will bring the house down with this scene alone.
Unless you’ve been living in the Batcave, you saw the popular meme with two Spider-Men pointing at each other.
The meme originated from the 1967 Spider-Man animated series.
Specifically, it was the second story in the 19th episode.
Called “Double Identity,” it aired on January 13, 1968.
In the story, Spider-Man faced a criminal impersonating him.
To this day the show remains a big part in Spider-Man’s history.
However, the meme took a life of its own.
Spider-Man ran for three seasons after its September 9, 1967 debut.
Controversial filmmaker Ralph Bakshi was its Executive Producer.
In 1972, Bakshi wrote and directed Fritz the Cat.
Fritz the Cat became the first X-rated animated movie.
Spider-Man spawned other popular memes such as Spider-Man at work, me and the boys, and Sexy Spidey.
However, none have made the same cultural impact as the pointing meme.
In fact, the meme was even used for a hilarious post-credit scene in Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse.
Tom Holland To Pay Tribute To Famous Spider-Man Meme In No Way Home
Spider-Man 2099 transported to the same universe of the 1967 cartoon.
Thus, he met that universe’s variant of Spider-Man.
Consequently, that led to them both to argue and point at each other.
People then Photoshopped three Spider-Men to reflect Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Well, it looks like we won’t be needing Photoshop anymore.
When Spider-Man: No Way Home is released, there could be a live-action version of the meme.
Will Tom Holland, Maguire, and Garfield point at one another?
There’s no confirmation yet; however, it’s quite possible.
During filming of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Tom Holland and a crew member poked fun at the meme.
Apparently, Tom Holland wasn’t just acting it out for fun.
The source revealed Tom Holland suggested the idea.
Many have been hoping that Spider-Man: No Way Home will include this moment.
On the contrary, some worry it’d be cheesy.
It’ll bring the house down.
