Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Spider-Man (Tom Holland) share little or no display time within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. They fought on reverse sides in Captain America: Civil War, however that they had no important interplay. Some followers assume which will change subsequent 12 months.
Spider-Man 3 is slated to return out someday in 2021, and that will supposedly occur near the discharge date of the Disney+ Hawkeye collection. The solely caveat right here is that the COVID-19 pandemic has upended launch schedules, so Spider-Man 3 and Hawkeye might not happen so shut to one another.
The Hawkeye/Spider-Man Timeline is likely to be altered
On a Reddit thread the place followers talk about the third MCU Spider-Man film, one fan suggests Hawkeye may present up, writing: “Hawkeye actually might be the best guess I’ve seen so far. It would also help sell his show, which should be releasing within a few months following the release of Spidey 3. Could even have Kate Bishop in a post credits scene.” Kate Bishop is a younger girl whom Hawkeye could be coaching.
This principle operates on the timeline of launch dates we had earlier than the pandemic. Disney/Marvel has already shifted its whole Phase four slate, pushing every film again three or 4 months.
Spider-Man 3 was not included in that announcement as a result of Sony is answerable for distributing that film. It had been scheduled to return out in July 2021, and Hawkeye had been scheduled to launch late in the identical 12 months.
No announcement has been made about Spider-Man 3, nor about any of the Disney+ reveals. However, the pandemic has shut down manufacturing in Hollywood, and the third Spider-Man film in all probability wouldn’t make its manufacturing begin this July as deliberate. With all the discharge dates altering, each Spider-Man 3 and Hawkeye would nearly actually be pushed again as nicely. This is the place Marvel’s well-known inter-connectivity will not be such a profit.
Who else would possibly Spider-Man group up with?
The Reddit thread relies on the concept one other Marvel hero at all times reveals up in Spider-Man’s motion pictures. In Homecoming, it was Iron Man. In Far From Home it was Nick Fury (or no less than what gave the impression to be Nick Fury). Fans reckon that Spider-Man 3, no matter it finally ends up being known as, will observe the identical sample.
One fan suggests: “The identify leaping out at me is Sam Wilson. Sam’s gonna be going by means of his personal transition within the brief time period, however by the point SM3 comes round, it may make sense for him to be stepping up into a task like this ,,, Sam’s deeply knowledgeable and skilled in how you can assist somebody coping with grief and going by means of some s***. So that might be a powerful theme of their relationship, with Peter nonetheless transferring ahead previous Tony’s demise, however in flip, Sam coping with Steve now being gone.
There has even been hypothesis, from main comedian fan Kevin Smith, no much less, that Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock would make his first look in an MCU film. It would most certainly be as Murdock quite than Daredevil, however both method, followers could be thrilled to see a Marvel/Netflix character revived in an MCU film.
What will ‘Spider-Man 3’ be about?
All these talks step round an much more impactful query: What, precisely would Spider-Man 3 be about? Obviously, it could cope with Spider-Man’s secret id being revealed by J. Jonah Jameson, however there was no particular information in regards to the plot of the third film, aside from Holland promising the film could be wonderful, as is his enthusiastic behavior.
Some followers have guessed the villain within the third film could be Kraven the Hunter, a maniacal huge recreation hunter who goals to have Spidey as his newest trophy. One fan on Reddit suggests: “If he’s being hunted by Kraven I could see like Bucky or Clint being a part of it since they’re marksmen and more grounded heroes. Could also see Black Panther for sure -> spider man escapes to Wakanda and then there’s a jungle environment for the hunt.”
We’ll discover out as 2021 will get closer- simply perhaps not as quickly as followers hope.
