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!

 

 

LOOK: 50 famous memes and what they mean

With the infinite number of memes scattered across the internet, it's hard to keep track. Just when you've grasped the meaning of one hilarious meme, it has already become old news and replaced by something equally as enigmatic. Online forums like Tumblr, Twitter, 4chan, and Reddit are responsible for a majority of meme infections, and with the constant posting and sharing, finding the source of an original meme is easier said than done. Stacker hunted through internet resources, pop culture publications, and databases like Know Your Meme to find 50 different memes and what they mean. While the almost self-replicating nature of these vague symbols can get exhausting, memes in their essence can also bring people closer together—as long as they have internet access.
