Despite box office downturns and poor reception from viewers, Sony's Spider-Man Universe pushes forward. Its most recent filmMorbius has been memed into submission by the internet-at-large.Morbiusfollowed a pair of Tom Hardy-ledVenom films that, by all accounts, have their fans.
The next two studio releases in this universe areMadame WebandKraven, and a Bad Bunny vehicleEl Muertoalso is in the works. Many things about Sony's shared universe are well-known, but the main one is that it does not yet have any actual Spider-Man.
Has a new Spider-Man for the SSUbeen hidden in front of fans' faces for a few weeks?
Is Adam Scott the New Spider-Man from Sony?
Adam Scott, who was cast in Sony'sMadame Webin July, may be revealing a variant of Peter Parker, or Spider-Man.Set photos show him looking somewhat Peter Parker-ish.
Below are a few examples of Twitter's theories and reactions to this possible casting.
"I'm not sure if Adam Scott will reprise his role as an older, retired Peter Parker, but I like the actor, and it's a cool and different perspective on Peter than we usually see on screen. If Sydney Sweeney is playing Black Cat, I'll never expect them to marry. "
"Id only watch Madam Web if Adam Scott is Peter Parker I never anticipated I'd need it, but it's so good!!"
"I cant help but think that Adam Scott, a retired Spider-Man who takes up the mantle one last time to assist, is just a fantastic character."
"Adam Scott is the perfect "old Peter," according to the filmmakers. If they can make him as they did in the Spiderverse, "it'll be a top film."
"Oh man, after seeing those Adam Scott Madame Web photos, the adult Peter Parker agenda grows."
"Wait is Adam Scott playing Peter Parker in madame webI see the vision I really do"
Scott as Spidey would be a much-needed win.
Many individuals and members of the general public are unsatisfied with Sony's Spider-Man Universe, going as far as expressing great contempt for it. After all, at the very least, these films are utilizing up characters, namely villains, that might be used in an MCU Spider-Man film. Not to mention, these Sony films aren't of the same calibre as other superhero films.
Adam Scott is a popular fan-favorite actor. As the buttoned-down but nerdy Ben onParks and Recand it seems like he has the necessary tools to take on the iconic role of Spider-Man, even if it is a younger version of him.
It's also important to mention that fans are extremely fond of an older 30,30,40-something Peter Parker. Look no further than Jake Johnson's response to Tobey Maguire's return as the original cinematic web-slinger inSpider-Man: No Way Home.
Sony wants a victory. They want to be a player on the board when it comes to superhero content. This is something that may be difficult to achieve if they continue to operate as they have been. However, if Adam Scott is truly cast as an alternate-universe Spider-Man, that might be a step in the right direction.
On October 6, 2023, Sony's Madame Web will be released in cinemas.
