Spider-Man: No Way Home united Marvel’s three Spider-Men for an internet-breaking – and box-office record-setting – on-screen get-together. But one of the fans, Peter Parker, stayed out of the mix: Chris Pine voiced the webhead’s alter ego in the 2018 Oscar-winning animated blockbuster Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verseand didn’t make the jump to live action.
Yet the Wonder Woman star tells Yahoo Entertainment he’s content with not being invited to join Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland in action in No way home, which premieres today on most digital platforms. “That’s already a full team,” Pine says of that Spider trio as he talks about his upcoming action movie, The contractor† “I’ll be happy to miss that.”
Of course, Pine’s Spidey has a good excuse to be left out, as he has the dubious honor of being the only Peter Parker to die on screen. In the film, the murder of Peter with the Kingpin’s oversized fists clears the way for arachnid-bitten teenager Miles Morales (voiced by Shameik Moore) to take on the role of the Spider-Man of his universe. Miles also meets other Spider-people from across the Spider-Verse, including Peter B. Parker (Jake Johnson), Spider-Gwen (Hailee Steinfeld), and of course the spectacular Spider-Ham (John Mulaney).
Pine’s version of Spider-Man makes a memorable impression before his untimely demise. In addition to swinging a wire all over Manhattan and catching thieves just like flies, Peter pushes tons of Spider merch — including a hilarious Christmas album of songs like “Spidey Bells” and “Joy to the World (That I Just Saved).”
“I had a lot of fun singing those songs; it was a great time,” Pine says of his alter ego’s singing career. Since Garfield and Holland are also musically inclined, we hope that the coming follow-up Across the Spider-Versegives Pine a second chance at a Spider-Bro shindig… complete with a karaoke jam session.
While his Spider-Man career may be over (for now), Pine is boldly heading back to the last frontier for a fourth Star Trek adventure. In February, Paramount announced a new March feature that Pine’s Captain Kirk, Zachary Quinto’s Mr. Spock And Zoe Saldaña’s Uhura Will Reunite For First Kelvin Timeline Outing Since 2016 Star Trek Beyond† JJ Abrams – who directed the 2009 reboot and its 2013 sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness — produces, and WandaVision helmer, Matt Shakman is attached to directing.
When asked if he will approach Kirk differently after so many years of not wearing his Starfleet uniform, Pine indicates that he is still waiting for more information from his higher federations. “It’s really hard to tell without a script or a story,” he notes. one thing huh is doing know is that they will not shoot the legendary R rated of Quentin Tarantino Star Trek script. Pine says he still hasn’t read the book Once upon a time in Hollywood carefully guarded pitch from the author, but remains very interested to know what a Tarantino-written March movie might look like. Even in the distant future, they probably still sell Red Apple cigarettes.
