Andrew Garfield isn’t achieved with Marvel simply but. After his in an instant vintage team-up with the Tom Holland and Tobey Maguire variations of Peter Parker in Spider-Man: No Way Home, Garfield is coming again for extra. Our relied on and confirmed supply has showed the Oscar-nominated actor has signed the dotted line to come back again for extra Marvel flicks.
The timing of this information may just doubtlessly say so much about in what capability Andrew Garfield returns to Marvel. Just closing week, Kevin Feige all however showed what maximum Marvel Comics fanatics knew already — that the following large tournament within the Marvel Cinematic Universe will likely be in response to the 2015-16 Marvel Comics mega-crossover, Secret Wars. Assuming the theatrical tournament is anything else just like the supply subject matter, it’s going to require extra trade universe variations of established Marvel characters than ever.
When Marvel Comics relaunched each Avengers and New Avengers in 2013, Jonathan Hickman wrote each titles and he crafted a long-form tale concerning the heroes dealing with one thing we heard mentioned in Doctor Strange within the Multiverse of Madness. The Illuminati of Marvel Comics secretly started protective their fact in opposition to “incursions,” i.e. cases of 2 timelines threatening to collide with one some other, doubtlessly destroying each. Ultimately handiest the 616 fact remained, and in the end none in any respect. Then, with 2015’s Secret Wars #1, Doctor Doom remade fact with himself appointed the ruler of Battleworld — the one global in his new fact — and renamed himself God Doom.
Which is the place the reunion of Andrew Garfield and Marvel is available in. In the comedian e-book tournament Secret Wars, the entirety revolves round reputedly unending variants of established Marvel characters co-existing at the similar global. For instance, God Doom’s legislation enforcement is treated by means of the Thor Corps — an enormous workforce of variant Thors all operating in combination. There are Thors already offered in previous comics like Throg, Beta Ray Bill, Red Norvell, the Ororo model of Thor, and many others. Then there are logo new ones like a Gamora Thor and a Groot Thor (who continuously says “I am Thor”). There is a savage realm of variant inexperienced, pink, and grey skinned Hulks. There’s a realm the place the Marvel characters are all in a Western atmosphere; one stuffed zombified Marvel characters; and more than one nation-states in response to X-Men dystopian tales like Days of Future Past, Age of Apocalypse, and Old Man Logan.
It could be nearly unimaginable for Marvel Studios to evolve Secret Wars on the similar scale, however regardless of how a lot of it they adapt, they’re going to without doubt want far more variants than they’ve ever had in one undertaking, which is the place Andrew Garfield returning to Marvel is available in. The tournament will want a minimum of a couple of variations of Spider-Man, and having Garfield on board makes issues so much more uncomplicated.
Actually, there’s no explanation why Andrew Garfield would essentially be restricted to the Marvel function we already know him for. In different phrases, he may just play more than one variations of Spider-Man. In reality, this may well be a part of the solution to a query fanatics were inquiring for years: how and when will Miles Morales input the Marvel Cinematic Universe? In the comics, Morales is from some other timeline during which — like in 2018’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse — Peter Parker dies and Morales replaces him. Then the occasions of Secret Wars introduced Morales into the top 616 continuity together with another characters (e.g. Old Man Logan, the Maestro of Future Imperfect). Perhaps Garfield will play the model of Parker who dies sooner than Morales takes the mantle?
