This Spider-Man Needs To Be In ‘No Way Home’, But He Won’t Be!
With Spider-Man "No Way Home" dropping in theaters TODAY, it reminded me how allegedly (no spoiler's here) it's going to be a type of live action "Into The Spider-Verse" movie. (Duhh... no real new news here, it's one of the worst kept secrets in the world). Well, we do have 3 chances to get a certain Spider-Man onto the big screen. NOW with "No Way Home" and two more chances with the upcoming sequels to the animated films "Across The Spider-Verse" Part 1 & 2. But will it happen & which Spider-Man am I talking about?
If you have not already heard, yes, the award winning "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" is getting a sequel! It's expected in theaters on October 7th, 2022! The first film featured many spider-men from across the different dimensions and comics such as Spider-Gwen (Ghost-Spider), Noir, Spider-Ham, Miles Morales, and of course Peter Parker among a few others. The after credits (spoiler alert) even showed Spider-Man 2099 interacting with Spidey from the 60's cartoons and meme fame. But there is one Spider-Man that was missing from the 2018 animated film, and will MOST LIKELY be missing from the new flick "No Way Home", but he really shouldn't be! It's the one & only... "Italian Spider-Man"!
Who is Italian Spider-Man? Well, we'll let the trailer speak for it's self!
He was created in 2007 as a parody of Italian action–adventure films of the 1960s and 1970s. Alrugo Entertainment, an Australian film-making collective is responsible, and is not owned by Marvel/Disney (yet). So to answer the question, "will Italian Spider-Man be in No Way Home or Across The Spider-Verse?" Probably not. But there is always hope! Because damn it... he should be!
