There’s a lot to celebrate today, on the 28th of September, and one of those things is the possible arrival of The Amazing Spider-Man 3. Sony has just teased the most inconspicuous teaser via their official Twitter handle and the world has been keeping anything but quiet ever since. Although it is still early to tell for sure, the possible repercussions of an official *hint hint nudge nudge* on behalf of Sony are simply manifold.
What is Sony Cooking Up in their Spider-Man Universe?
For the longest time, Sony Pictures Entertainment has owned the rights to produce and distribute Spider-Man projects which have flourished for over a decade. So much so that the mass media and entertainment company now has their very own Spider-Man universe which allows them to explore their own brand of the Marvel universe. However, the multitude of recent developments happening at Marvel also means that their newly minted SSU has to progress or be stuck in an eternal loop of Spider-Man reboots.
The new teaser might just be proof that the company is finally ready to take the leap. Sony had granted a favorable opportunity in 2021 when their collaboration with Marvel on Spider-Man: No Way Home broke all possible barriers. The revival of Sony’s two greatest Spider-Man actors in their most celebrated roles offers the segue the company needs to finally deliver The Amazing Spider-Man 3. That segue was moreover made easier when No Way Home subtly delivered a filler for all the years that have passed in Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire‘s own alternate universes. Sony can pick up from where No Way Home leaves off and finally break the chain of failures it suffered with the SSU debuts, Venom: Let There Be Carnage and Morbius.
The Fandom Prepares Itself For The Amazing Spider-Man 3
Less than 24 hours ago, Sony tweeted a magnified image of Andrew Garfield’s The Amazing Spider-Man poster logo. This could either mean that the studio is re-releasing The Amazing Spider-Man films (keeping in tandem with the recent trend displayed by James Cameron) or the much more agreeable and fandom-pleasing choice of The Amazing Spider-Man 3. The latter choice will deliver the much-needed film that will explore the aftermath of the tragedy of Gwen Stacy’s passing. It will also beautifully top off Andrew Garfield’s trilogy as the Marvel comic superhero.

Tom Holland is amazing and deserves to continue in the MCU.
But let's give Andrew Garfield another chance as The Amazing Spider-Man. Just make sure you get some good writers, a fantastic director, and good producers on board.
And don't rush it.

All of the chaos is a sure sign that the fans are more than up for the official announcement already. The possibility of The Amazing Spider-Man 3 happening was a mere theory after No Way Home but the teaser that Sony tweeted comes at the most auspicious time as the Marvel universe already gears up for other major projects. This not only will make the most out of fan interactions and traffic currently happening across all social media platforms but draw an engaged crowd spanning all fandoms.
