PANAMA CITY BEACH — Spider-Man may be hiding somewhere in the Marvel multiverse, but Bay County’s own local superheroes know where and when to find him: opening weekend at The Grand Theater in Pier Park, on December 17 and 18.

Heroes of all ages gathered for the

A sizable group of costumed heroes (and at least one villain) are expected to be in place for the local opening weekend of the new Marvel movie, “Spider-Man: No Way Home.” The movie is supposed to bring the current web-slinger, played by Tom Holland, into conflict with villains from previous incarnations of the Spider franchise by bringing them into the current Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The Dutch version of Peter Parker is joined by the Sandman, Doctor Octopus, Green Goblin, Lizard, Electro, Doctor Strange, and potentially other spider heroes, who will do anything a spider can do.
