An unofficial clip from the production of Spider-Man 3 gives a glimpse at what’s in store for one of the movie’s stunts, including Spider-Man and MJ.

Since production began at the end of October, Tom Holland has been dropping traces of his iconic Spider-Man across social media, from him being masked up on set to watching TV in his suit.

However, it’s the latest clip that has perhaps the biggest insight so far into the third movie.

Behind the scenes on Spider-Man 3

It may have been a year of no Marvel movie releases, but fans are in luck, as most of the movies planned for the next two years have returned to production, including Spider-Man 3.

Aside from the previously mentioned content, shooting for the third movie has understandably been kept under wraps. However, as time goes on – and filming leaves the studios – more content is being discovered.

The latest to be revealed is a short clip, shared by a fan on Twitter. Though it’s quite far off from the stunt taking place, it’s clear to see two people on a platform before they swing down towards the camera.

Looking closer at the video, Spider-Man looks to be joined by MJ on the platform, who also seems to be in the same outfit she was wearing at the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home.

This suggests the movie will carry on straight from where it left off, which isn’t too much of a surprise for fans, as in the post shared by Tom Holland, he is donning the same black and red suit that he wore for the final part of the sequel too.

With such a big cliffhanger in Far From Home, the third movie will inevitably have a lot to live up to, especially as it’s expected to tie into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness as well.

Although we have a while to wait until Spider-Man 3 arrives, either a trailer or teaser is expected to arrive in December, following in the same footsteps as the previous two movies, which had trailers drop on December, 8.

If this weren’t enough, it’s been rumored that the previous movies will be arriving on Disney Plus soon, after an advert for the platform in Latin America featured content from both of them. However, Disney Plus previously said that they had no plans to include it on the streaming service.

Spider-Man 3 is set to be released in theaters on December 17, 2021.

Spider-Verse producer wants Spider-Man: Miles Morales glitches in sequel

The transformational glitches in Spider-Man: Miles Morales are pretty hilarious. So hilarious, in fact, that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’s producer, screenplay and story writer, Phil Lord, wants to use them in the hit movie’s sequel.

Lord and his filmmaking duo, Christopher Miller, are no strangers to animation or comedy. With titles like Spider-Verse, Lego Movie, and 21 Jump Street under their shared filmmaking belt, it’s no wonder that the two are unafraid of getting a little weird with the animated Spider-Man flick’s sequel.

And if you want inspiration for red and blue weirdness, look no further than the Miles Morales game. Playable on PS4 and PS5, the title has apparently been a massive success, with 97 percent of Google users enjoying it. While people are typically annoyed with launch day bugs, the issues with this one are just too funny to chastise. 

With weird, viral videos of players transforming into various inanimate objects, it was actually a transformation of a patio heater that caught Lord’s eye. Now, it appears that “Heater Parker” could become a reality in Spider-Verse 2.

Since the original Spider-Verse movie was chock-full of absurdities and goofy odes to different genres or pop-culture references, invoking a video game’s glitch should be no problem. And, as far as content goes, few things evoke comedic surrealism as much as a patio heater using a web to swing from building to building in New York City.

For Lord, at least, the randomized development mistake appears too funny to ignore as film inspiration: “We’re putting this in Spider-Verse 2 if we have any self-respect at all.”

Hopefully, he and Miller have as much self-respect as the title’s developers, Insomniac Games, have humility. In response to Lord’s tweet, which has since gone viral, the game’s makers couldn’t help but acknowledge their imperfections with a pun.

While we were under the impression that patio heaters were meant to heat patios, not hearts, the Insomniac reflection remains accurate: this silly, inanimate object glitch is “equally as embarrassing as it is heartwarming.”

But, above all else, they’re just funny. It could legitimately be one of gaming and cinema’s greatest, most randomly inspired crossovers if Spider-Verse 2 involves an alternate dimensional Heater Parker.
