RUMOR MILL: SPIDER-MAN 3 Will Reportedly Introduce Dr. Spencer Smythe And His Robotic Spider-Slayers

RUMOR MILL: SPIDER-MAN 3 Will Reportedly Introduce Dr. Spencer Smythe And His Robotic Spider-Slayers

Spider-Man: Far From Home ended with Peter Parker being framed for Mysterio's murder, so this rumour about the Spider-Slayers being introduced definitely adds up. Find out more details after the jump...

Spider-Man 3 is shaping up to be a busy movie, with Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange and Jamie Foxx's Electro (a character he first played in 2014's The Amazing Spider-Man 2) already confirmed to appear. Now, a report from Murphy's Multiverse claims that Dr. Spencer Smythe and the Spider-Slayers are also expected to be part of the Marvel Studios release. 

As the site points out, J. Jonah Jameson was the one who commissioned the creation of those robots in the comic books. Given his return at the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home, it would certainly make sense for Jonah to be the one who attempts to bring Peter Parker to justice in the threequel. 

It's also worth remembering that B.J. Novak played Alistair Smythe, Spencer's son, in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. There's no word on whether he'll return, but that would be another link to the sequel.

Whatever the case may be, Spider-Man 3 is shaping up to be a much bigger movie than we expected. There are conflicting reports about whether Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield really are returning as their respective versions of Spidey, but we'll hopefully get some more news from the trades soon.
