How many Spider-Mans fit in one movie?
Referring precisely to the term Spider-People, it would seem that, including characters who are just passing through or do not have a specific relevance, the number would go beyond 200, while excluding them, it would almost reach 100.
“The exact number? Oh my, I don’t know, we kept adding to the last one” ha revealed Thompson “I’ll be very honest, we just finished working on the film, like in the last couple of weeks, so I don’t think we’ve had time to stop and count them all. But I think it was something like 280 last time I checked“.
“To be clear, however, this does not mean that these are unique and specific characters that you can recognize distinctly. I mean any variation of Spider-Man” he wants to clarify, and concludes “But if you mean characters with names and all, I’d say about 95“.
