Spider-Man fans may see a cross-over between the animated Miles Morales character and a live-action Tom Holland in “Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse.”
The 26-year-old British actor, best known for playing Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is rumoured to be appearing in the “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” sequel, according to the most recent episode of “The Hot Mic” show, which debuted Thursday night.
There were numerous reports that Tom Holland might appear in “Across the Spider-Verse” in November and December, according to Sneider. I believe Chris Miller, who may have been consulted, was the one who reportedly said, “You know, all I say is it’s the multiverse, and anything may happen.”
The “Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse” film was allegedly delayed because the production team was having trouble “getting” Tom Holland for the role. According to the 39-year-old veteran film reporter, “one of the dimensions that Miles could end up going to or whatever is a live-action dimension” with Holland.
“On that, there hasn’t been any formal announcement or confirmation. But would it surprise me if ‘Across the Spider-Verse’ had a live-action Tom Holland scene? No, “Added he.
Sneider added that the reports originated as a result of the agreement between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures to maintain Tom Holland in the role of Spider-Man in the MCU and to create further content beyond “Spider-Man: No Way Home.”
During the episode, he also spoke about the “huge rumours,” posting “OK, so here’s the deal” on Twitter. I was unable to find a second source for the major rumour of today. So, there won’t be a companion piece on Beyond the Line, which is for news that has been confirmed. But, I will still share it since I believe the source is reliable and it is simply too juicy to pass up.”
It appeared that a live-action scenario in the animation multiverse was still possible. The deal with the international entertainment firm, according to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, allowed Holland’s Spider-Man to “integrate” into their Spidey spinoffs.
According to Screen Rant, Feige stated in a statement from back in 2019 that “[Spider-Man] also happens to be the only hero with the superpower to span cinematic universes.” So, as Sony continues to create its own Spidey-verse, there is no telling what shocks the future may bring.
As Feige recently disclosed that “there actually is a strategy” to cross Spider-Man and their spinoffs, Sony CEO Sanford Panitch seems to have supported Feige’s assertion, the outlet noted.
