Sony Plans To Unite Spider-Man Actors With A LGBT Twist

Sony is reportedly developing a new Spider-Man/Spider-Verse film that would unite Tom Holland with Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield with a twist.

A source told We Got This Covered that the project, which is in early development stages, would see Holland team up with former Spider-Men Maguire and Garfield.

The source claimed that Sony particularly wants to get Garfield in on the action so he can play a bisexual Spider-Man.

In a move that would see Sony giving queer people everything they want, Garfield’s Spider-Man will also have a boyfriend, the source claims.

While the claims are just rumours at this point, both Tom Holland and Andrew Garfield have both called for a more sexually diverse Spider-Man in the past.

Current Spider-Man actor Tom Holland, told the Sunday Times Culture Magazine last year that Marvel superheroes needn’t always be “a straight white guy”.

When asked if there could ever be a gay Spider-Man, Holland replied: “Yeah, of course.”

Meanwhile, Garfield called on producers to make Spider-Man pansexual in 2015.

“I’m excited to get to the point where we don’t have to have this conversation,” he said, “where we can have a pansexual Spider-Man.”

“The richness of the world we’re in, the diversity of the world we’re in; you look at the animal kingdom and you see it reflected,” he told Mic.

“You look all over,” he continued. “What are we so scared of? Why are we so, ‘No, it has to be this way, a man and a woman.’ Why is that even a conversation?”

Sony clearly has very progressive plans for it’s Sony’s Marvel Universe.


Spider-Man remains its most important franchise. The live-action Spider-Man: Far From Home, which it produced with Marvel Studios, became Sony’s highest grossing film over the summer 2019 with $1.13 billion globally.

Sony is providing us with lots more instalments:-
