    Tom Holland, Andrew Garfield, And Tobey Maguire Just Formally Recreated That Iconic "Spider-Man" Pointing Meme And I Am Loving Their Commitment To The Fandom

    "Your new lock screen just dropped."

    By now I'm sure you know that Spider-Man: No Way Home — the latest, record-breaking installment in Marvel's popular film series — featured a brilliant, albeit not entirely unexpected, onscreen reunion spanning multiple generations of the franchise.

    It was very meta, as Tom Holland's Spider-Man suddenly came face-to-face with Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire, who played the titular superhero in previous movies.

    Naturally, the trio's group appearance in No Way Home gave rise to a ton of discussion online. Amid fans' excitement over Andrew and Tobey's respective cameos were some astute observations about one particular Easter egg moment, which referenced an iconic meme born out of the 1960s Spider-Man animated show.

    Different versions of the meme show either two or three cartoon Spider-Mans pointing at each other. There's a scene in No Way Home where Tom, Andrew, and Tobey recreate the gesture, and, as Andrew shared during an appearance on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, it was intentional.

    They literally recreated this meme not once but twice #SpiderManNoWayHome #PeterParker

    Anyway, to promote No Way Home's upcoming digital and Blu-ray releases in March and April, the three actors recreated the meme again. This time, they did it more formally.

    "Of course, we got THE meme," the official Spider-Man: No Way Home Twitter account wrote in a tweet this morning. It included a photo of Tom, Andrew, Tobey in full Spider-Man costume, standing in a semi-circle and pointing.

    of course, we got THE meme. #SpiderManNoWayHome swings home on Digital March 22 and on 4K UHD & Blu-ray on April 12! Pre-order now:

    "Your new lock screen just dropped," a second tweet read. And, yeah, I think it just did.
