Marvel’s Tom Holland has shared a look at filming on set of Spider-Man 3, with a teaser for the movie expected at the beginning of December.

As one of the most popular superheroes there is, you would think it’d be easy to make Spider-Man 3 happen.

Unfortunately, it took an onslaught of fan hysteria, along with an intervention from Tom Holland, for Marvel and Sony to finally give the movie the green-light back in 2019.

Since then, Jamie Foxx has been confirmed to return as Electro, with rumors also circulating about Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield making a return too.

Will Peter Parker have a new suit in Spider-Man 3?

After having two new suits introduced in Spider-Man: Far From Home, there are hopes that the third movie will also bring some new looks for the web-slinger.

In a recent Instagram post from Tom Holland, the actor shared a first look at what the superhero will be wearing.

It seems the third movie will be picking up right where the sequel left off, with Holland back in his red and black suit. There’s no surprise there, with his big identity reveal in the mid-credit scene of Far From Home likely to be the main focus of Spider-Man 3, along with connections to the multiverse.

That being said, Peter could still get his hands on another suit throughout the movie, which will hopefully be revealed in a trailer later down the line.

In a conference at ExpoCine 2020, the Executive Marketing Director for Sony Pictures, Camila Pacheco, announced that a teaser or preview for Spider-Man 3 is set to be released this December, according to Murphy’s Multiverse.

With the trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming dropping on December 8, 2016, and Far From Home’s also arriving on December 8 in 2018, it’s expected that this will also be the case for the third installment.

Spider-Man 3 will be released on December 16, 2021 find out everything you need to know about the movie here.

Baby Yoda was used to balance out the action-packed Chapter 12 of The Mandalorian, according to one of the show’s directors.

The Mandalorian’s Carl Weathers didn’t make it a secret that he would be directing Chapter 12 of the show, sharing his excitement with fans online.

Now the episode has aired, the actor has spoken out about what it was like directing and starring in ‘The Siege’.

Why The Mandalorian needs more Baby Yoda

Having only hit the screen in 2019, Baby Yoda has quickly become one of the most popular Star Wars characters to date, so why not use that to your advantage?

Well, Weathers did exactly that. In a conversation with Empire on their Spoiler Special Podcast, the actor said: “When I read the script, one of my comments was to ask John to put more of the Baby in there.”

Though no one could complain about more Baby Yoda content, there was a valid reason for Weathers making this decision, which he went on to explain.

“The journey that we’re on is fraught with danger and is very action-oriented, and there’s a lot of weapons-fire and bad guys going down and chases and all that good stuff…” he said.

“But there’s also the Baby. This gentler, softer, sweeter side that comes out of everyone who interacts with him. And that to me was just a wonderful balance.”

Though fans may not directly notice the difference when watching the episode, Baby Yoda’s presence breaks up what could otherwise be a very heavy chapter with big revelations.

Speaking about the challenges in creating the episode, Weathers also addressed the bomb that was dropped half way through: “The challenge for me as a director – and I’m certain the challenge for Jon as a writer-producer – was keeping people engaged, wanting to know what’s going to happen next.

“And when you find out what’s really involved here, you finally get to, ‘Oh man, this thing is much bigger than we thought.’”

That’s definitely how we felt watching Chapter 12 unfold. New episodes of The Mandalorian are available to stream on Disney Plus every Friday.
