The world indeed is full of surprises, one may even term it as coincidences. Something extraordinary came to notice as the internet went gaga over the leak where Leonardo Dicaprio was present.
The massive storm of speculation, rumors, theories, and blatant lies has only just begun. On Wednesday, what is purported to be a leaked screenshot from the closing credits of Doctor Strange 2 — aka Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness — shows Leonardo DiCaprio appearing as, yes, Peter Parker/Spider-Man from another universe.
Could this be a new beginning? But this is just tip of the Marvelberg, The Marvel/Disney news Twitter account MCUverse posted the supposed screenshot, which not only lists Leonardo DiCaprio appearing as an alternate Spider-Man, but also lists Tom Holland, Tobey Maguire, and Andrew Garfield all re-appearing as Spidey. Other celebrities apparently appearing from the Spider-Man circle include Dove Cameron as Spider-Gwen (she voices her in Marvel Rising: Initiation), and Sabrina Carpenter as yet another version of Gwen Stacy (Carpenter has often been fan-cast as the tragic love interest).
Well, DiCaprio may not be a veteran of the Spider-Man films like Maguire and Garfield, but he came close to it. According to James Cameron, the filmmaker he was developing a Spider-Man film even before making 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day and he had DiCaprio in mind for the lead role. So, the theory that DiCaprio could show up in Doctor Strange 2 is not unlike the rumors of Tom Cruise appearing as an alternate Tony Stark.
Furthermore, the Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness list included Fox’s original Fantastic Four series cast and credited Chris Evans as Johnny Storm. Most absurdly, it also credited Leonardo DiCaprio as a variant of Spider-Man, along with Sabrina Carpenter and Dove Cameron as variants of Gwen Stacy.
Things seem too murky and too good to be true. The only answer could be found in the film. Till then it is all rumors
