Spider-Man 4 Can Finally Embrace One Thing The MCU's Trilogy Made Impossible

The MCU version of Spider-Man has been exposed to a few criticisms, and the plot of Spider-Man 4 can hopefully address one of them. Tom Holland had big shoes to fill when he took on the iconic role after Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. Maguire’s performance as Peter Parker and his costumed persona drew acclaim from critics and audiences alike in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy. While Garfield’s The Amazing Spider-Man reboot series didn’t entertain similar praise, his take on the character has entertained its legion of fans, setting up a high bar for the MCU iteration.

Ever since the MCU timeline debut of Spider-Man in Captain: America: Civil War, the hero's characterization has drawn some complaints, from not matching his predecessors to being overly reliant on technology like Tony Stark’s Iron Spider armor. His time-altering activities in Spider-Man: No Way Home offered adequate screentime to fellow Avenger Doctor Strange and Spider-Men of other dimensions (Maguire and Garfield reprising their roles). While the fan service stuck the landing, some had hoped Holland’s Spider-Man had no multiversal ties and led a standalone story. With the cliffhanger ending of the third movie, Spider-Man 4 can finally achieve this desire.

A quintessential part of Spider-Man’s origin story is that Peter Parker isn’t financially well-off, the reason why he picks up a hectic job as a photojournalist at Daily Bugle. Not only does he often struggle with paying the rent of his beatdown New York apartment, but he also faces the onslaught of his loud-mouthed boss J. Jonah Jameson’s anger. The MCU Spider-Man movies sadly ignored this aspect of his personality altogether, as the three movies so far were fixated on his time as a high-school student. But this changes with the consequences of the ending of Spider-Man: No Way Home.

From Spider-Man: Homecoming to his current MCU adventures, Tom Holland’s version of Spider-Man was reliant on the financial support and mentorship of Tony Stark. Not only did the late Avenger provide him with the latest gadgets and gizmos, but he also looked out for him as a father figure. At home. Aunt May was another parental figure to fall back on. This runs in contrast with Peter’s origins in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy with the landlord Mr. Ditkovich and the news editor J. Jonah Jameson often causing him trouble. The Amazing Spider-Man movies similarly depicted Peter as an ordinary high-schooler.
