Spider-Man: No Way Home is mere weeks away and fans are getting antsy as release day draws nearer. The Spidey threequel will cross Multiversal lines as Doctor Strange and Peter Parker take on villains from the webhead's storied cinematic history. And the two Marvel heroes may be getting some help as rumors point to Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire returning as their versions of the wall-crawler.
With so much being packed into one movie, audiences were itching to lock down their tickets for No Way Home. Maybe it's an effort to avoid potential spoilers or just the anticipation boiling over, but tickets flew off the digital shelves as the film became one of the biggest pre-sale ticketing launches to date.
Since tickets made their way online, stories of actual fights over seats have come out, along with scalpers taking advantage of the hype and selling their ticket stubs for ungodly sums. This Spider-Man madness has brought out both the worst and best in people, and many are waiting to get in on the fun.
Betty Brant Has Got Her Spidey Tickets
Actress Elizabeth Banks, who played Betty Brant in all three films in Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man trilogy, shared a humorous tweet online saying she has got her "tickets to #SpiderManNoWayHome:"
"Me with my tickets to Spider-Man: No Way Home already like 🎟️ #tbt"
The tweet was accompanied by an image of Banks' Betty in 2004's Spider-Man 2 holding Peter Parker's pay stub ticket for his Daily Bugle work.
Elizabeth Banks is Having Fun with Spider-Man
This is so much fun! Celebrities poking fun at the madness that can befall fans at points will never get old, and Banks does it in excellent fashion here. The Spider-Man actress has only grown in profile since the 2002 epic, and it is funny to see that she still thinks of her time behind a desk at the Daily Bugle.
Now, before too many of the MCU faithful get their tinfoil hats shined and ready, this does not mean that Elizabeth Banks could be back in No Way Home. While it would be interesting seeing her interact with this universe's versions of Betty Brant and J. Jonah Jameson, Banks has moved on from the role. However, at this point in the MCU, anything seems to be possible.
What this does make one think about though, is what confirmation of Garfield and Maguire's inclusion in the film could look like on social media. Andrew Garfield is on Twitter, but Tobey Maguire is not. If the two were to jump on social media posting a recreation of the Spider-Man pointing at Spider-Man meme, the internet might just spontaneously combust.
But that is all dreaming at this point. For now, fans will have to have a giggle at Elizabeth Banks' tweet and yearn for the day that they can finally see Spider-Man: No Way Home.
