“The Amazing Spider-Man 3” with Andrew Garfield will never see the light of day, with the whole series having been rebooted in favor of Tom Holland as our new web-slinger. But thanks to the internet, we have a pretty good idea what the movie would have been. Read on for more details.
Director Mark Webb and Andrew Garfield have recently made startling revelations about the third part of their citically panned “Spider-Man series.” Add to that a little intelligent guessing and extrapolation of plots from the old films, the people at Den Of Geek have put together an apparently accurate analysis of the non existent third part.
First of, the tone of the movie would have been pretty dark, with Garfield confirming so much to Uproxx:
“how do we build upon where we left off with this deep, desperate moment with Gwen? So, yeah, we got to some pretty heavy places, and I was really excited to kind of explore it and be involved on the ground level like that.”
Secondly, Denis Leary (Captain Stacy), has also confirmed that Peter would be experimenting to solve death. In a recent interview, Leary said, “at one point Spider-Man would be able to take this formula and regenerate the people in his life that had died.”
And this being a superhero movie, it is probably safe to assume that raising the departed would not have good consequences for Peter. So far we have a gritty “Spider-Man” possibly fighting the zombies of dead friends and family. Promising.
“The Amazing Spider-Man 3” would also have brought J. K. Simmons as Jonah Jameson back to the Spider-Man fold. It was such a shame it is that at least that did not happen. “Divergent”‘s Shilene Woodley was supposed to be cast as Mary Jane Watson.
And that brings us to the main villain. If you think only Harry Osborne is left alive at this point, think again, because “Amazing Spider-man 3” would have brought back Norman Osborne as the literal big daddy of the ‘Green goblin.’ Webb hinted strongly at Osborne’s cryogenically frozen head making a comeback, and possibly talking to Peter in a Hamlet-style scene. Among other villians slated to appear were “Kraven the Hunter” and the “Vulture.”
So in summation, “The Amazing Spider-Man 3” would have seen a dark Spider-man, haunted by the zombies of friends and family, with Jonah Jameson screaming insults into his ear every second, fighting a cryogenically resurrected Green Goblin and son. And honestly, that sounds totally amazing.
