With Sony and Marvel now working in tandem, the reintroduction of Electro with Foxx behind the mask could be the beginning of a live-action Spider-Verse.
The concept of multiple dimensions with many version of the same character was first introduced in Sony’s most recent Spider-Man film, 2018’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The animated film was hugely successful, grossing $375.5 million worldwide, and even garnering an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.
With audiences eager to see more of the Spider-Verse narrative, the upcoming third Marvel Spider-Man film may usher in former web-slingers Garfield and Tobey Maguire back to the silver screen.
Putting three Spider-Men in one story would be a huge step for the franchise, as it would bring the cinematic continuity in line with the comic books – which regularly delve into the multiple-Spider-Man shtick.
