By now, it shouldn’t come as a surprise as to what went down in the latest Marvel blockbuster, Spider-Man: No Way Home – the three Spider-Man iterations of the past 20 years met for 30 wholesome minutes thanks to the craziness of the multiverse.
That’s right, Tobey McGuire’s 2002 Spider-Man, Andrew Garfield’s 2012 Spider-Man, and Tom Holland’s 2017 Spider-Man team up to take on the baddies for the very first time, much to the elation of Spidey-enthusiasts worldwide.
Because, why have one Spider-Man when you can have three?
But now, the trio has exceeded all expectations and taken their success story to the next level by recreating the Meme of all Memes from the classic Spider-Man cartoon of the 1960s, Spider-Men Point at Each Other.
It’s iconic, and you would have come across it a million times over the years. It’s also a fantastic marketing stunt by Sony Pictures.
To mark the release of the latest installment of the blockbuster franchise coming to digital and Blu-Ray, Sony Pictures released the photo of epic proportions which has rightfully blown up the internet.
Well played, Sony.

Spider-Man: No Way Home has broken every box office record since opening in theaters last December, grossing an eye-watering $1.8 billion USD worldwide, according to Variety – the highest-grossing Sony release in history.
The Spider-Men spoke to Deadline about their grand achievements with this particular Marvel film.
“It felt like a great creative idea and a great creative story,” said Andrew Garfield.
“It wasn’t like they were just asking us to come and say hi and then leave again but actually have our presence being in service to Tom [Holland], being in service to Tom’s journey and where he is as Peter Parker.”
Holland went on to explain the significance of the three Peter Parkers coming together, saying the experience was incredibly emotional.
“There definitely was a sense for me, as an actor, that this was the last time that I could potentially don the suit, so a lot of that emotion came from the act of saying goodbye, which is one of the biggest themes throughout this film,” said Holland.
“But this film also felt like a celebration of three generations of cinema.”
Spider-Man: No Way Home is available digitally and on Blu-Ray from March 22.
