Spider-Man actors Tom Holland, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield have delighted Marvel fans and social media users alike by recreating that meme to promote the digital release of No Way Home.

The ‘Spider-Man pointing at Spider-Man’ meme first popped up on the internet circa 2011, with the images apparently coming from a 1967 episode of the cartoon titled ‘Double Identity' where a villain impersonates Spider-Man.

Yesterday, the official Twitter account for the movie posted: “Of course, we got THE meme.”

The blockbuster has become the highest-grossing movie of the pandemic era, raking in $1.83bn globally, resulting in it ranking as the top-earning Spider-Man film from the franchise so far.

Homage to the meme popped up during the film where viewers witness three Spider-Man characters point at each, but it was nothing quite like yesterday’s rendition – which has since garnered 65k retweets and over 282k likes.

The latest chapter in the Marvel Universe series drops on digital platforms March 22.
