After Spider-Man finally came home to Marvel and teamed up with the earth’s mightiest heroes, the world of the young Peter Parker is getting more exciting.
Multiverse crossovers are commonly used in both comics and movies to introduce characters who are from another place, planet or dimension. This concept has been the talk of the town since Spider-Man: Far From Home incorporated the idea of the multiverse concept in the form of Mysterio.
The Oscar winner of Best Animated Feature, Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, introduced Miles Morales as the central Spider-Man character along with other Spider-people from alternate realities. Can this possibly mean Marvel-Sony is bringing Tom Holland’s predecessors Toby Maguire and Andrew Garfield into the web arena?
“There are [possibilities]. Everything is possible. It would be very interesting,” says Amy Pascal, Spider-Man: Far From Home producer. “In this sense, the multiverse is a winning idea, because it opens up endless possibilities.” She boldly adds that they can literally do anything, including a potential team-up.
The decision whether the previous title holders of the web-slinging hero will join the Spider-Man multiverse is up to Sony and Marvel Studio’s head Kevin Feige.
Tom Holland admits that he’s very cool with teaming up with Maguire and Garfield. He also mentioned that fans have been clamouring to see them together in one film. It would be a really nice surprise for the fans who have been following Spider-Man’s story from the beginning.
In addition, recent rumors claiming Tom Hardy’s symbiote-powered character Venom is likely to join and team up with Spider-Man. Sony both holds Spider-Man and Venom. Feige answered in an interview that he has no idea what Sony has planned for Venom, whether a sequel to happen or a crossover with Spidey.
The concept is to team up Holland’s Peter Parker and Hardy’s Eddie Brock who are currently existing in a separate continuity. If this crossover happens, it needs a more compact story where their worlds collide and potentially brew a dispute given Venom is one of Spider-Man’s archenemies.
