Are you all ready for Spider-Man: Phone Home? No? Then what about Spider-Man: Home Slice? That still isn’t doing anything for you? Then how does Spider-Man: Home-Wrecker sound?
If you think those are all terrible titles for the upcoming third Spider-Man film then you can rest easy knowing they are all fake. Spider-Man 3 stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, and Jacob Batalon trolled their fans last night by each releasing a first look image at the upcoming MCU film alongside a fake title card.
The images tease some sort of underground location. Is it where Peter Parker is hiding out after having his identity revealed in Far From Home? What are they looking at? Is Ned doing sports? So many questions and almost no answers to pull from the images.
Coincidentally, Holland was also on The Tonight Show last night doing press for Cherry. Host Jimmy Fallon asked Holland about the Spider-Man sequel including appearances by Jamie Foxx’s Electro and Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Mans. Holland, now apparently a master at keeping secrets, remained silent and said that he had read the whole script and that they weren’t in it. Aww. Sad face. I’m not buying it.
People on Twitter were quick to point out that each of the fake title cards could relate to a different film iteration of the web-slinger. Home Slice is a nod to Maguire’s Parker’s pizza delivery job. Home-Wrecker ties to Garfield’s Spidey and how he ruined the Stacey family’s lives. And then Phone Home is about Peter always relying on Tony Stark or Happy Hogan. I don’t really buy into the concept beyond the Home Slice one, but it’s a neat theory.
Another theory making the rounds is that the colors on the title cards tease the appearance of the Green Goblin as the main villain of the film. Green, purple, and grey are the three dominant colors on the Green Goblin’s costume, and Willem Dafoe was rumored to be filming scenes for the threequel.
However, at the end of the day, we still know nothing about the film beyond the first look images and confirmation that the sequel will not be subtitled Phone Home, Home Slice, or Home-Wrecker.
Spider-Man 3 hits theaters December 17, 2021.
