Thanks to neural networks and deepfake, you can “fix” everything you don’t like in the film yourself, for example, replace Tom Holland in Spider-Man with the canonical Toby Maguire.
Sam Raimi’s trilogy of Spider-Man with Toby Maguire in the lead role is many – despite the resounding success of Tom Holland in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – is still considered the “model” Spider-Man. Apparently, one of such loyal fans of the original trilogy, a youtuber with the nickname Aldo Jones, decided to “fix” the superhero blockbuster “Spider-Man: Away from Home” – and replaced Tom Holland’s face with Toby Maguire’s face using deepfake.
The video came right on time – given the fact that the fate of Spider-Man performed by Tom Holland in the Marvel Cinematic Universe hung in the balance due to disagreements between Sony and Disney. Fans of the comic book hero appreciated the result of the work of deepfake – in just a few days the video gained over a million views and 5 thousand comments, and some even note that “their dream has come true”, as they say, they love both “Away from home” and Toby Maguire in the image of Spider-Man.
