Spider-Man Fans in Juárez Recreate Famous Meme In Time for Movie Premiere
Well, it's finally here! "Spider-Man: No Way Home" is officially out in theaters and fans all over the world are super excited, including me!
Sadly, I did not get tickets to opening night-that was sold out quickly! Instead, I decided to wait for the weekend to see the movie with my nephews, who are equally excited. My nephews had me participate in a week long Marvel marathon that included the Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield "Spider-Man" films, you know, just in case they show up in this one!
While I try to doge spoilers online, I went over to Twitter to block the word "Spider-Man" from my timeline, but before I did, I noticed one amazing Tweet that I'm glad I caught before I banned all things "Spider-Man" on my timeline! Check it out below:
Five Peter Parkers in front of a Peter Piper Pizza? Amazing!
If you're not sure why this simple picture of five fans dressed as Spider-Man pointing at each other has managed to get over 200 thousand likes on Twitter, allow me to explain.
The five Peter Parker/ Spider-Men pointing at each other are recreating a famous meme that has become a favorite online. According to Know Your Meme, the meme became popular around the mid-2010's and originally started out with just TWO Spider-Men.
The image comes from episode 19b of the 1967 Spider-Man cartoon, "Double Identity." In the episode, a villain attempts to impersonate the Spider-Man. The meme has gone through transformations and has had three, four and sometimes even five Spider-Men.
With all the hype of "No Way Home" going around, I think we can all agree that IF the Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield Spider-Men DO end up in this movie and they don't try to recreate this meme, we RIOT!
