“Spider-Man” Stars Re-Create an Iconic Meme to Promote Digital Release

Spider-Man Stars Re-Create an Iconic Meme to Promote Digital Release

The cast of “Spider-Man: No Way Home” rekindled their MCU “brotherhood” to recreate the iconic Spider-Man pointing meme to praise the official “Spider-Man: No Way Home” digital release. Andrew Garfield, Tom Holland, and Tobey Maguire recreated the meme for fans.

The studio celebrated by publishing a picture of Tom Holland, Tobey Maguire, and Andrew Garfield replicating the iconic Spider-Man pointing meme, which is sure to go viral among comic book movie fans and at the same time Sony announced “Spider-Man: No Way Home” will be released on digital, 4K UHD and Blu-ray on March 22 and April 12, 2022. Due to a fault in the multiverse, The film placed all three iterations of Spider-Man side by side.

An image of three Spider-Men pointing at each other and one of whom is a villain impersonating the titular hero, has become an internet meme. The original image was from a Spider-Man cartoon from the 1960s. Over the years, enthusiasts have altered the image to include more characters and make them look more like shooters.

Since its December 17 opening in theatres, it broke a record on the box office with a historic opening in the US and other parts of the world. Spider-Man: No Way Home has become the third-highest-grossing film of all time at the domestic box office. It has surpassed James Cameron’s 2009 sci-fi epic Avatar’s $760.5 million domestic hauls. The film has a global gross of $1.8 billion, making it the sixth highest-grossing picture of all time and the highest-grossing Sony release ever. Spider-Man: No Way Home is one of the year’s most anticipated films, and it has lived up to the hype. The new Spider-Man picture will be available to watch in 4k, as is the case with other Marvel movies.

Sony controls the Spider-Man character’s license.  After Sony’s announcement of the digital release, Garfield’s idea to incorporate the pointing meme became, well, handy.

“Spider-Man: No Way Home” features three generations of Spider-Men performers on-screen by bringing together Tom Holland, Tobey Maguire, and Andrew Garfield. Both Holland and Garfield have previously stated that they would love to star in another Spider-Man film together. Don’t remember the characters? Then watch Spider-Man: No Way Home for a quick recap.

“I remember having a lightning bolt and running into the set and telling [director] Jon [Watts], ‘I got it, I got it,’” Garfield said on the Happy Sad Confused podcast (via Comic Book Resources). “Cause there’s this moment where Jacob [Batalon] is like, ‘Hey Peter?’ and we all go, ‘Yeah?’ But in the script, it was like, that was that. We all go ‘Yeah?’ and in the script, my Peter says, ‘This isn’t going to get old at all,’ like something kind of sardonic which felt kind of undercutting.”

Garfield continued, “We were trying to figure out the pointing thing, like how we were going to do the pointing meme in a way it took us a while it kind of happened naturally on that scaffolding scene with Peter 1, Peter 2, Peter 3, like all that.”

Garfield added that he is “absolutely open” to donning the Spidey suit again, and not only for a promotional meme after his “deep” experience teaming with Maguire and Holland.

“It would have to be something very unique, very special and serving to an audience and in service of the character,” Garfield said. “There’s something playful and unique and odd and unexpected to be done. I’m not sure what is but if we can figure it out it would be so much fun.”

Spider-Man: No Way Home is Vudu’s top-selling pre-order title of all time. It has already surpassed its predecessor, Avengers: Endgame, in terms of pre-orders.

Spider-Man: No Way Home is a box office smash. The film was available in theatres for 90 days which has turned the audience to come and watch again, making this movie break many records in the history of Hollywood cinema.
