Sony drop strange Amazing Spider-man image on social media… Andrew Garfield fans start praying

September 28th, 2022 by Marc Comments

Sony, what are you at?

On Twitter last night, the official Sony Twitter posted an image asking fans if they could tell what it was from:

Eagle-eyed fans quickly twigged it was the poster for Andrew Garfield’s first Amazing Spider-man movie [the one at the top of the page] and, of course, the Garfield – and Spider-man – fans raised a collective eyebrow.

Why post the image?

Ever since Garfield’s wonderful return as Peter Parker/Spider-man in last year’s Spider-man: No Way Home, there has been no shortage of rumours and speculation that he was set to return for a third Amazing Spider-man movie and also would appear in the MCU again, most likely in the Secret Wars movie.

They’ve teased him in this way before…

Now, while there’s nothing certain, Sony is bound to be aware of how much Garfield’s Spider-man was embraced after his return last year, so we can’t help feeling that something is afoot here.

Would you like to see a third Amazing Spider-man movie? Let us know in all the usual ways, folks.

For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero is unmasked and no longer able to separate his normal life from the high-stakes of being a Super Hero. When he asks for help from Doctor Strange the stakes become even more dangerous, forcing him to discover what it truly means to be Spider-Man.

Directed by: Jon Watts

Written by: Chris McKenna & Erik Sommers

Based on the MARVEL Comic Book by: Stan Lee and Steve Ditko

Cast: Tom Holland Zendaya Benedict Cumberbatch Jon Favreau Jacob Batalon with Marisa Tomei

Spider-man: No Way Home hits cinemas on December 17th, 2021

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
