It’s a great time to be a Spider-Man fan!
It is hard to think of anything missing from the Oscar-Winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, not only did it redefine what fans thought they knew about their favorite wall-crawler, but it introduced an entire multiverse of Spideys into one movie, from Miles Morales, to Gwen Stacy, from Peter Parker to Spider-Ham.
However, there was one Spider-Man that didn’t make the final cut, even though it introduced two Peter Parkers and a mid-credits cameo of Spider-Man 2099. But sadly, our very own Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Spider-Man was left on the cutting room floor.
Yes, Tom Holland has revealed that he was originally supposed to appear as a cameo Peter Parker at one point during the movie. Describing the scene as literally a walk-by cameo, it is unclear if we would have actually seen Tom Holland voicing Peter Parker or Spider-Man but an Easter-Egg like that would have sent fan-adoration for Spider-Verse into an overflow.
It’s all connected
Furthermore Spider-Verse is supposed to indicate that every Spider-Man to ever exist is contained within the multiverse explored during the course of the movie, so to have it confirmed that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is one of those connected realities would have been mind-blowing not just for comic-book fans but cinema-goers.
The current Peter Parker did however express his fondness for Spider-Verse Spider-Man Miles Morales and pondered the possibility of the character ever swinging over into the MCU at some point in the future.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is currently available to own on Digital Download as well as Blu-ray, Ultra HD Blu-ray, and DVD release.
As well as winning the Academy-Award for Best Animated Movie, Spider-Verse has also won many other awards either for Best Animated or simply just Movie, Production Design, Directing and Visual Effects,
Holland is currently promoting his latest Marvel Movie, Spider-Man: Far From Home. This movie supposedly will introduce the multiverse to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, despite Doctor Strange also exploring it back in 2016.
In addition to Tom Holland, the movie also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, Marissa Tomei, Jacob Batalon and Jake Gyllanhaal
Spider-Man: Far From Home swings into theatres on July 2.
