As you can see above, this Spider-Man: Homecoming figurine is a posed in almost perfect (if not too real) sentiment to how millions of Americans are currently approaching their Monday work shift. As we write this (from home) a significant portion of the entire American business world is scrambling to adapt to changing social circumstances, while trying to dodge a seriously infectious and harmful virus, too boot. We could all use one of those homemade Spider-Man costumes, right about now - so if you're looking for a a way to kill time while in quarantine...
Right now, the story of Marvel's Spider-Man threequel is unknown, but has been greatly hyped by the cast and crew. In fact, franchise star Tom Holland just recently called it downright "insane."That's not a surprising claim, given how Spider-Man: Far From Home ended with the villain Mysterio revealing Peter Parker's identity as Spider-Man to the world.
That's led to speculation that Marvel's Spider-Man 3 could be a mini-Marvel Cinematic Universe event in its own right (with both good and bad elements of the MCU chasing down Spider-Man. Other speculation points to a possible Sinister Six storyline, or even the introduction of MCU's Kraven the Hunter, who is supposed to get his own spinoff franchise. Whatever the case may turn out to be, right now the current plans for Marvel's Spider-Man 3 is somewhat uncertain. The threequel was supposed to start shooting later this year, but with the new coronavirus turning into a global pandemic, that schedule may be just one more part of the entertainment inudstry that gets upended.
