If you ask us, the premiere of Spider-Man: No Way Home couldn't come soon enough, and this new Lego set seems to confirm a very Strange plot point in the upcoming movie.
In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Phase 4 is continuing the legacy of Phase 3 and we cannot contain our excitement. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will follow the story of Marvel's first Asian-American superhero as he grapples with his turbulent past and the role he must assume in the shadowy Ten Rings organisation. Simu Liu, who plays the titular protagonist, actually got the part by chatting to Marvel on Twitter, which is a big brain move that we could never have pulled off ourselves.
In Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Dr. Stephen Strange's research on the Time Stone is interrupted by Mordo, and in doing so, an evil power is unshackled and allowed to wreak havoc. Dr Strange is also confirmed to appear in Spider-Man: No Way Home, as well as Alfred Molina as Doc Ock and Jamie Foxx as Electro. Seeing that these characters have never returned in the newest trilogy of Spider-Man movies, their arrival becomes curiouser and curiouser when you consider that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield are rumoured to don the red and blue Spidey suits once again.
Insomniac Games nailed the exhilaration of swinging and swooping through the city of New York as the smart-mouthed hero in Marvel's Spider-Man. JT, also known as Built IRL on YouTube, created a replica of Spidey's webs and it really works. Check it out here.
With speculation swirling round the movie like the mist in Mysterio's helmet, it's tough to tell what's real and what's wishful thinking. Fortunately, it looks like the lid has been lifted with this new Lego set that ties into Spider-Man: No Way Home. "Spider-Man at the Sanctum Workshop," priced at £34.99 and arriving on October 1st, depicts Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Wong and MJ in the The Master of the Mystic Arts' cellar. On the box, it shows the "buildable, giant bug monster with gripping claws" holding Wong and Spider-Man and Doctor Strange are attempting to free him.
The bug monster may be an unwelcome visitor from the Multiverse who might have gotten loose owing to a mishap from Spider-Man inside the Sanctum Sanctorum. So, this set might be a scene that has the group come to terms with how serious the fracturing of their universe is and what's at stake. Furthermore, Spidey appears to be rocking a new costume which is reminiscent of the Iron Spider suit. I'm sure all will become clear when the movie releases on December 17th, but for now, consider our interest piqued.
