Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Versethe directors are having fun reading all the fan theories about the upcoming movie. Unfortunately for you, most of them are “far from base”.
Speaking exclusively to TechRadar during the lengthy press day leading up to the release of the next Spider-Man movie, Kemp Powers and Joaquim Dos Santos confirmed that they have yet to see a fan theory come close to being right.
Given the surrounding mystery Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verseplot, it is understandable why this happened. Still, some movie and TV show buffs – especially those who frequent gossip-filled forums like Reddit – have accurately guessed at certain plot threads about upcoming movies or TV series. An example is The Mandalorian Season 3 recently wrapped up on Disney Plus – Director/Executive Producer Rick Famuyiwa exclusively told TechRadar that some Star Wars fans guessed correctly the direction of this season’s narrative.
Powers and Dos Santos, however, say the same cannot be said By Spider-Verse. In fact, of all the fan speculation the duo have read online, about “90 percent” is completely wrong.
“NO [been] a lot on social media,” Powers said. “But the theories I’ve seen, I have to say, 90 percent of the rumors are far from base, to the point that it’s almost irritating how wrong they are!” *laughter*
“We live in a time where bad rumor is spreading and people are starting to accept it as truth. Or, say Phil [Miller] and Chris [Lord, Across the Spider-Verse‘s executive producers] could have said something in an interview four or five years ago, fans then think, “That’s what they said.” power happen! Now we know it will happen.” Guys, the movie is almost ready. you will see it. But yes, the vast majority of rumors are false.”
“There were a few doozies for sure,” added Dos Santos. “But on the other hand, it’s like we’re happy that people are talking and speaking about it, and not at all. Believe me, I’ve been crazy for a million years about who would win in a fight between Spider-Man and Wolverine or, you know, if we ever saw a big Marvel/DC crossover. People will talk, and that’s just part of being in the fandom.
Analysis: web of misguided clues or fanning the flames?
Due to the long participation in By Spider-Versethe development of the company, comments from Powers and Dos Santos can be taken at face value. They know what the plot of the movie is about, what characters will appear, who will get the most character development, how it will end – and lead to a sequel, Spider-Man: Beyond Spider-Versewhich is currently scheduled to hit theaters in March 2024.
That said, this couple has certainly thrown us some misguided clues in the past 12 months. Even if the lone Spider-Man fan correctly guessed the movie’s story, including its ending, Powers, Dos Santos & Co. won’t let us know that someone has I understood it well. This would only fuel the fire and cause webslinger fans to search for the right theory online.
We don’t mind speculating on what will happen Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse, or. We discussed our thoughts on the direction the film is taking in our hub (link above) as well as ours By Spider-Verse trailer crash article. So we can’t sit here, act tall and powerful, and tell wallcrawler fans to stop theorizing and just wait for the movie to come out in theaters.
With some members of the cast and crew also teasing us from time to time, we can’t help but speculate about what we’ll see when one of our most anticipated new movies of 2023 hits theaters. Just this week, Powers told CinemaCon attendees (via Total Film) that the film has secret cameos that the main cast doesn’t even know about (opens in a new tab) – one of them is “blowing the eyeballs in the back of the head.” Meanwhile, Lonely Island Instagram account (opens in a new tab) teased Andy Samberg joining fellow comedian/actor Jorma Taccone in voicing the character in the film, despite Sony and Marvel not confirming his involvement.
By Spider-VerseSo the in-house creative team helps to lead discussions and fan theories about the pre-release film. As Dos Santos and Powers say, it is an inseparable part of the world we live in today. Still, by taking part in these online discussions, they fan the flames of the same fan theories that they feel are “out of place”, which I’m sure amuses them a lot. I curse you both!
However, we have nothing to wait for Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse hit cinemas around the world, so we’ll soon find out which fan theories turned out to be a hit. Be sure to check back on TechRadar next week for a more in-depth, exclusive discussion with Dos Santos and Powers about the movie.
