    Spider-Man 3 (2021)

    https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/he...ange-exclusive

    Apparently, the cast will include [SPOILER]Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Strange and Jamie Foxx will reprise the role of Electro.[/SPOILER] It's unclear if the latter will be a J.K. Simmons type thing (i.e. he's playing a version native to the MCU) or if it's a multiverse type thing (and he'll literally be the version from the other movie). Though, the other casting announcement (see spoiler tag) does open that possibility.

    The big question is then if they'll (just speculating, no evidence) have Tobey and Andrew show up. If they do (and it won't just be for a few seconds, that gets overhyped by trailers... and online buzz/fan theories), I just hope for two things:

    1) That Tobey and Andrews Peter Parkers are depicted as having grown and developed since we last saw them. In 2021, it'll be 14 and 7 years since we last saw them (and that's assuming that SM3 and TASM2 are both set in the year that they were released. Haven't watched them in ages, so I don't know). Things should've happened to them (both in their role as Spider-Man and their personal lives), over that time.

    2) That the three Peter Parkers (Tobey, Andrew and Tom) get depicted as individuals, rather than interchangable. Don't just have Tobey and Andrew be exactly like how Tom's Peter will be like in 10-20 years. Nor should Tobey and Andrew be like each other. Have them develop differently. When we last saw Tobey, he was having marriage thoughts about Dunst's Mary Jane. Have that have happened. He married MJ and they now have a daughter (May "Mayday" Parker) together. Andrew's Peter could've developed differently. Naturally, he couldn't have ended up marrying Gwen Stacy. But don't have him end up with the Mary Jane Watson of his universe either. If he's in a relationship, have it be with someone else.

    Iím speculating too, this will set up Sonyís Spider-Man/Live Action Spider-Verse franchise. Marvel gets to close out Spider-Manís story in the MCU, while handing over the reigns to Sony. Iím thinking at the close of this next movie he choices or is forced to leave the MCU Earth. And now Sony can produce a new series of Tom Holland lead Spider-Man movies where heís introduced to new allies (e.g. Spider-Gwen) and villains (e.g Tom Hardyís Venom) on a different Earth(s)...Sony can differentiate themselves with these movies if they can take the multiverse angle and run with it (instead of rebooting it for the umpteenth time).

    That is a possibility. I just hope, in such a scenario, that it isn't done through killing off either Tobey's or Andrew's Spider-Men (with Tom's taking their place). Both, no doubt, have their fanbases. It'd be a jerk move to either fanbase, to bring back their favorite Peter Parker, just to kill him off, so that Tom's Peter Parker can move to a new universe. Sure, they'd most likely move him to a fourth universe (likely the same as Venom), but dumb decisions do get made.

    If Tom's Peter were to move to another universe, it raises the question of his supporting cast (specifically May, MJ and Ned). Would he leave them behind (requiring him to get a brand-new supporting cast (even an AU Michelle "MJ" Jones and Ned could count as new characters), in a fourth movie)? Would some of them go with him? Outside of May, the latter scenario would be problematic, as it would have them up and leave their own families behind, to join Peter in another universe.
