Tom Holland, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield have recreated the iconic classic cartoon Spider-Man meme for the 4k and digital release date announcement of ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’.
The official movie account tweeted “Of course, we got THE meme,” and posted the announcement dates for the home video along with it.
The scene originally appeared in the 60s cartoon, where a villain begins impersonating Spider-Man. In the new movie, there is a scene where the webslingers come together and pay homage to the meme by pointing at each other. However, it is nowhere as obvious as this image.
The upcoming ‘Spider-Man’ movie will be available on digital on March 22. It’ll be made accessible on 4K UHD and Blu-ray April 12 onwards.
The Sony-Marvel venture swung to the top of the US box office, smashing several records. Even after the long run, ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ remained at third place in the box office during the President’s Day weekend. It became the biggest hit since theatres opened after the pandemic, and shows another step in the right direction for the Sony-Marvel collaborative effort.
Accordingly, Sony is building out its portfolio of Spider-Man related characters. The ‘Venom’ movies have already arrived and ‘Morbius‘ is slated to drop on April 1, 2022. Dakota Johnson will also be seen next in a ‘Spider-Man’ spinoff, titled ‘Madame Web’.
The events of ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ also sets up the premise for another interesting instalment in the new phase of Marvel films. ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness‘ sees the sorcerer, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, fight the consequences of opening a gateway between universes, while casting a complex spell to try and help Peter Parker, who wanted everyone to forget his Spider-Man superhero identity.
The new ‘Doctor Strange’ movie, meanwhile, arrives in theatres on May 6, 2022.
