They actually did it!
Tom Holland, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield re-created the classic cartoon Spider-Man meme, which popped up on social media Wednesday for the digital and 4K release date announcement of No Way Home.
“Of course, we got THE meme,” tweeted the official Spider-Man film account, along with the home video announcement dates.
The ’60s cartoon meme is two Spider-Men pointing at one another in an episode where a villain impersonates Spider-Man. The meme has been used over the years for several purposes, calling out hypocrisy being among the most popular. Sometimes, the meme features three Spider-Men. There is a moment in No Way Home where the three Spider-Man characters point at each other in homage to the meme, but not a perfect re-creation like the one posted Wednesday for the home release.
Needless to say, the meme was a huge hit, with more than 10,000 retweets within minutes of being posted.
As for Spider-Man: No Way Home, the blockbuster Marvel Cinematic Universe chapter drops on digital platforms March 22 and on 4K UHD and Blu-ray on April 12. No Way Home has seen more prerelease purchases than any other title in the history of Fandango’s Vudu, eclipsing prerelease purchases for Avengers: Endgame.
The Sony-Marvel film became the highest-grossing picture of the pandemic era with $1.83 billion globally and counting. It became the highest-grossing Spider-Man film thus far. And it is also now the sixth-highest-grossing film of all time worldwide. Domestically, the movie is the third-highest-grossing picture of all time.
No Way Home has won several awards and is nominated for a best visual effects Oscar.
of course, we got THE meme. #SpiderManNoWayHome swings home on Digital March 22 and on 4K UHD & Blu-ray on April 12!
