The initial film trilogy showcasing Tom Holland as Spider-Man witnessed the iconic web-slinger collaborating with various MCU heroes. There is apparent interest from Marvel Studios and Sony to continue this trend in the upcoming fourth standalone film, Spider-Man 4.
According to information from film insider Daniel Richtman, reported by ComicBookMovie.com. Marvel and Sony are keen on incorporating Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox) and Scott Lang/Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) into Spider-Man 4. Richtman indicates that Daredevil will play a significant role in the current Spider-Man 4 script. While Ant-Man’s involvement is currently conceptualized. Should Ant-Man join, his character would assume a mentorship role. Similar to the guidance provided by Iron Man and Doctor Strange to Peter Parker. Portrayed by Tom Holland.
The MCU’s Spider-Man has a history of collaborating with other superheroes, having first appeared in Captain America: Civil War. Where the Avengers divided over the Sokovia Accords. In Spider-Man: Homecoming Robert Downey Jr. made a cameo as Tony Stark/Iron Man, offering crucial advice to the fledgling hero. Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) featured Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, and Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021) saw Doctor Strange and Wong teaming up with Spidey. Alongside Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s respective Spider-Mans.
When Will Spider-Man 4 Begin Filming?
As of now, Marvel and Sony have not officially disclosed the commencement date for Spider-Man 4 production. However, Richtman previously reported in October 2023 that the two studios were considering a late 2024 start. Jon Watts will return as the director, with Zendaya reprising her role as Michelle Jones-Watson, Peter Parker’s love interest. Holland, in November 2023, expressed his willingness to reprise the titular role only if Spider-Man 4 proves to be “worth the while of the character,” emphasizing the importance of a meaningful storyline.
Spider-Man 4 Rumored to Tie Into Daredevil: Born Again
Although specific plot details for Spider-Man 4 are undisclosed, there are rumors suggesting a connection to the aftermath of the Disney+ series “Daredevil: Born Again,” featuring Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin and Charlie Cox’s Daredevil. With Daredevil and Spider-Man crossing paths in their civilian identities of Matt Murdock and Peter Parker in “No Way Home,” and both characters residing in New York, it seems plausible that Marvel and Sony may opt for a collaboration against a common adversary. D’Onofrio has hinted that he believes only Daredevil and Spider-Man working together could effectively thwart the MCU’s Kingpin.
As of now, Spider-Man 4 does not have a confirmed release date.
