AI Imagines A Wes Anderson-Directed Spider-Man Movie


For the fictional, AI-generated concept, the TikTok creator picked a number of interesting actors to bring Wes Anderson’s vision to life. Timothée Chalamet, who headlined «The French Dispatch,» is seen as Peter Parker. It’s an interesting casting decision and one that actually could have been a reality. In 2018, The Hollywood Reporter noted that Chalamet auditioned for the role of Spider-Man when it came time for the character to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The role ultimately went to Tom Holland. 

In the fan-made concept video, Uncle Ben is played by Tom Hanks, who worked with the auteur on 2023’s «Asteroid City.» While Hanks is a fine choice for the wise Uncle Ben, it’s a bit surprising that the creators didn’t consider Bill Murray for the role — he’s worked with Anderson over half a dozen times. In «Symphony of Spiders,» the nefarious Green Goblin is played by Matthew McConaughey, who has never starred in an Anderson picture. Mark Hamill, meanwhile, plays Doctor Octopus in what’s a genuinely brilliant casting. Sandman is played by WWE star-turned-actor John Cena. These days, Cena is well-known for playing Peacemaker, an anti-hero he brought to life for James Gunn’s «The Suicide Squad.» The trailer ends by revealing that «Kingsman» star Taron Egerton would play Venom. 

As great as the fan-made trailer for «Symphony of Spiders» is, Anderson won’t be bringing «Spider-Man» to the big screen anytime soon. Anderson continues to create films that he wants, with actors he desires. While he’d no doubt pump out great blockbusters, he’s one of the few contemporary filmmakers doing his own thing, and mainstream Hollywood is all the better for it.
