Marvel's Kevin Feige on 'Spider-Man' Rumors
Like any Marvel title before, Spider-Man 3 is subject to a slew of rumors and speculations piling onto it. Some, such as The Amazing Spider-Man's Jaime Foxx returning to the role of Electro, or Spider-Man 2's Alfred Molina taking on Doc Ock once again, are more concrete than other rumors, like former Spider-Men Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire donning their suits for Spider-Man 3.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has refused to crack or spoil anything regarding the Spider-Man threequel, and he is well aware of the guessing game that fans have taken to. "I've read some things. I'm not sure I've read all things," Feige told ComicBook in an interview during a press event for WandaVision. "The fun thing about online speculation when it comes to our stuff is how sometimes it couldn't be more off the mark and sometimes it's shockingly close, and that's held true for the last few years. But saying which is which would take all the fun out of everything."
Fans are still holding onto hope that some sort of multiverse will spiderweb from Spider-Man 3, which is to work itself into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in one form or another. "The biggest clue is the title of the second Doctor Strange movie. That's the biggest clue of where the Multiverse of Madness is taking us and how we're exploring that," Feige said. "It's surreal to me that we're talking about a Spider-Man 3. I worked on a movie called Spider-Man 3 many years ago directed by Mr. Sam Raimi. So this clearly, the shorthand of calling it Spider-Man 3 now, it's fine. We call it Homecoming 3."
As for the official title of Spider-Man 3, or Homecoming 3, there hasn't been the slightest clue or hint dropped. Tom Holland is to star as the web-slinging teen under the direction of Jon Watts, and the threequel will swing into theaters on December 17, 2021.
