Spider-Man 4 starring Tom Holland has been officially confirmed by Marvel Cinematic Universe chief, Kevin Feige.
Phase five of the MCU kicks off this week with Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania. However, with the movie making its debut having the worst-ever Metacritic score, it’s not looking great for the pint sized duo.
In terms of movies, phase five not only consists of Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, but also Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3, The Marvel’s, Captain America: New World Order, Thunderbolts, and finally Blade in 2024.
So presumably, Spider-Man 4 would arrive at some point from 2025. While remaining vague on the details, Feige confirmed that production of Spider-Man 4 is underway by saying: “We have the story. We have big ideas for that, and our writers are just putting pen to paper now.”
Tom Holland’s last outing was Spider-Man: No Way Home in 2021, and was quite literally an amazing movie. However, I don't want to give anything away, just in case you’ve not seen it yet. And if not, why not?
Anyway, let’s get back on track. Referring to No Way Home and perhaps Spider-Man 4, Feige explained: “We were all treating [No Way Home] as the end of a franchise, let’s say. I think if we were lucky enough to dive into these characters again, you’d be seeing a very different version.
“It would no longer be the Homecoming trilogy. We would give it some time and try to build something different and tonally change the films,” he continued. “Whether that happens or not, I don’t know. But we were definitely treating [No Way Home] like it was coming to an end, and it felt like it.”
If Spider-Man 4 is effectively a reset, it will be interesting to see in which direction the movie goes. Personally, I’m hoping for the Sinister Six to be finally introduced in the MCU, after it was taken away from the third Andrew Garfield Spidey outing that never materialised.
