    "OK, so, we just landed in Atlanta and uh...it's time for Spider-Man 3," he said. "Let's go!"

    Tom's confirmation comes after weeks of rumours surrounding Spider-Man 3 reached fever pitch when stuntman Greg Townley teased his return to set.

    But the rumours haven't just stopped there — everything about Spider-Man 3, from the cast and storyline to the movie's title, have been the talk of the internet lately.

    First of all, the big one — the rumours that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield would also be returning to the screen as the web-slinging superhero.

    According to reports, both Tobey and Andrew have signed on to play their version of Spider-Man, leading to the belief that the upcoming movie will introduce us to a live-action multiverse.

    However, a spokesperson for Sony, who own the rights to Spider-Man, attempted to hush the rumblings, telling ET Canada: "Those rumoured castings are not confirmed."

    As well as this, reports are also claiming that the third movie will be titled Spider-Man: Home Run, further tying it into the idea that we'll see a multiverse on screen which will be built upon in future Marvel movies.

    The reports continued to suggest that this will link with the upcoming Benedict Cumberbatch movie, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

    News of Spider-Man 3 comes after a first look at Tom Holland as explorer Nathan Drake was released last week, marking the countdown for Uncharted, which is slated for a summer release next year.

    Spider-Man 3 is currently due for release in December 2021 after being postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

    It will follow the release of other Marvel movies Black Widow, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, and Eternals.
