Is Spidey coming back to the Baxter building?
Marvel Comics plagues a mysterious new Spider-Man project that can either mean a crossover with Fantastic Four or a series that is in the universe of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy.
Check out the teaser image below:
The logical assumption is that Marvel torments an upcoming crossover between Spider-Man and Fantastic Four. The two franchises have a long history of mixing, with the first team between Spidey and FF happening far back in 1963 The Amazing Spider-Man # 1. Recently, Spider-Man joined forces with the Fantastic Four 2011 after the death of the Church, and even took over ownership of the Baxter building after the disappearance of the post-war era. be the first official match between Spidey and FF in severa This year, with Marvel, who recently recently returned the monthly Fantastic Four comic last summer.
A crossover seems even more likely given that the current Fantastic Four writer Dan Slott also has a long history writing The Amazing Spider-Man. We would not be surprised to see the Spidey guest star in an upcoming Fantastic Four storyline or watch Slott's Fantastic Four link up with Nick Spencer's ongoing Amazing Spider-Man series.
But many fans believe that this teaser could lead to a very different kind of Spider-Man adventure. The distinctive font takes into account the logos in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy, which led to some speculating this mystery project actually being an adaptation of the script for the interrupted Spider-Man 4.
Originally, both Raimi and the star Tobey Maguire was expected to return to a fourth Spider-Man movie, one intended to take the franchise "back to basics" and would have reported Black Cat and The Vulture. But Sony chose to restart the franchise after Raimi released 2010, which resulted in 2012 The Amazing Spider-Man.
This would not be the first time Marvel and Sony have considered looking at the world of Raimis Spider-Man. Last year's animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse included almost a scene with Maguire, Andrew Garfield and Tom Dutch versions of Spider-Man, but that scene was finally cut because of the fear of confusing audience.
