Earlier this week, I reported on the Chinese film Detective Chinatown 3 wrestling the record for biggest-ever opening weekend at the box office away from Avengers: Endgame.
In that piece, while I admitted it was unlikely, I speculated that Disney’s next change to reclaim their belt could come in the form of this December’s Spider-Man 3, which is shaping up to be one of the biggest Marvel Cinematic Universe films of all-time, Avengers-related or otherwise.
While nothing has been officially confirmed, fans are expecting that Spider-Man 3 will blow the multiverse wide-open, potentially even looping back in Ghosts of Spider-Mans Past such as Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.
Whatever shape the film ultimately takes, Marvel Studios is certainly keeping their cards close to their chest, as we still don’t even know the film’s title, despite the fact that it’s scheduled to be released in just about 10 months.
Disney is obviously aware of the fervor surrounding the film’s title, as it appears they’ve built a marketing strategy around it, with franchise stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, and Jacob Batalon all sharing *different* titles to their social media pages last night.
In response to Disney pullin’ a fast one, the internet copped with the letdown how it always does: by unleashing the memes. Within hours of Marvel’s title-bait-and-switch, Twitter became flooded with hilarious fake titles of the highly-anticipated third Spidey film.
