Tom Holland"s Spider-Man 4: 10 Ways It Could Be A "Significant Event"

  • Spider-Man 4 with Tom Holland will be a significant event, according to Sony.
  • Spider-Man 4 could bring back Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield for another multiverse adventure.
  • The MCU movie could also adapt Devil's Reign for a major street-level event.
Spider-Man 4 will mark Tom Holland's return as Peter Parker, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe movie could use some major characters and stories to become the event it is teased to be. Holland's Spider-Man movies stand as some of the most successful for both the character and the MCU as a whole. With the actor's fan-favorite status, Spider-Man could very well end up being the hero to have the most solo movies in the MCU when all is said and done.
The first step towards a possible new trilogy and beyond is the confirmed MCU Spider-Man 4. So far, there have been no reveals regarding what the movie's plot will be or what Marvel characters will be joining Peter Parker. That said, a new Spider-Man 4 update was shared by Sony Motion Pictures Group chairman Tom Rothman, calling the film a "significant event." Here are 10 ways Spider-Man 4 could make good on that promise.

10 Spider-Man 4 Could Introduce Morlun And Go Full Spider-Verse A Live-Action Spider-Verse Close One of the ways Spider-Man 4 could be a significant event is if it builds on what Spider-Man: No Way Home did, as well as the animated Spider-Verse franchise. Instead of having just the other two live-action movie Spider-Men appear, the MCU's Spider-Man 4 could thrust Holland's Peter Parker on a multiversal journey. With no one remembering who Peter Parker is, the character is free to venture into different universes in search of his own identity with this new status quo.
Peter Parker being forgotten by his world would fit thematically with the hero meeting several Spider-Man variants. And the movie could have the perfect villain in Morlun. The character hails from Marvel Comics, with Morlun being a character who feeds on the life force of "Spider-Totems." Morlun and his family, the Inheritors, could hunt the different Spider-Men across the multiverse, just like what happened in the comics.

9 Spider-Man 4 Could Properly Introduce Venom To The MCU No Way Home Teased The Symbiote Close Venom has already arrived in the MCU. Spider-Man: No Way Home's mid-credits scene featured a crossover with Sony's Spider-Man Universe. Tom Hardy's Eddie Brock appeared in a bar in the MCU, asking the bartender questions about MCU events and heroes. Just after mentioning he should pay Spider-Man a visit, the character is sent back to the SSU by Doctor Strange's spell. However, a piece of the Venom symbiote stays behind in the MCU.
Since Venom: The Last Dance has been confirmed as the final movie for Hardy's Venom in the SSU, perhaps his fate as the character is sealed. However, the piece of the symbiote that stayed behind in the MCU could make a return in Spider-Man 4. Like in classic Spider-Man stories, the symbiote could bond with Peter, using his fragile state at the end of the third Spider-Man movie to make him more aggressive, with all that leading to the debut of the MCU's Venom after Peter takes off the symbiote.

8 Spider-Man 4 Could Set Up Avengers 6 The Multiverse Saga Is Leading To Secret Wars Close The symbiote that stayed behind in the MCU at the end of Spider-Man: No Way Home could even connect to a major upcoming release. 2027's Avengers: Secret Wars will mark the end of the MCU's Multiverse Saga. In the comics, the Secret Wars event was when Spider-Man came into contact with the symbiote for the first time.
As such, if Peter came to don his iconic black suit at the end of the movie, he could do so in connection to Avengers: Secret Wars, teasing where he will be in the movie. There are also other ways for Spider-Man 4 to be a significant event that sets up Avengers: Secret Wars. There are rumors that Sony wants Spider-Man 4 to use the multiverse again, and the movie could end up seeing Peter deal with an incursion, an event that will be crucial to Secret Wars.

7 Spider-Man 4 Could Bring Back Tobey Maguire & Andrew Garfield An Even Bigger Multiverse Event Close If Spider-Man 4 ends up using the multiverse again, then the most likely option, and the most exciting, is to bring back what worked. Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire coming back as their versions of Spider-Man in 2021's Spider-Man: No Way Home and teaming up with Holland's Peter Parker to stop villains from their movies resulted in one of the most iconic cinematic events of all time. The film ended up grossing just shy of $2 billion worldwide.
Spider-Man: No Way Home did great with Maguire and Garfield's Spider-Men. However, the characters were only part of the film for its third act. Spider-Man 4 could go a step beyond and bring back the duo to have all three Spider-Men co-star in the movie from the beginning. Doctor Strange's spell could have affected Maguire and Garfield's Spider-Men as well, leading into Spider-Man 4 with the three trying to find a solution.

6 Spider-Man 4 Could Be Tom Holland's Final MCU Solo Movie Peter Parker Could Continue Close Tom Holland appearing in one final Spider-Man solo movie would certainly make it the significant event that Sony's chairman has promised. The actor first played Peter Parker in 2016's Captain America: Civil War, having led a Spider-Man trilogy and appearing in crossover movies since then. With an MCU reboot rumored to happen after Avengers: Secret Wars, Holland could make room for a new actor to play Peter Parker.
The Spider-Man star is 27 years old, which would allow Holland to keep playing Peter for at least the next decade. However, Holland has gone back and forth about his desire to continue playing Spider-Man for years to come, once saying, "If I'm playing Spider-Man at 30, I've done something wrong." Based on how Spider-Man 4 still has no director or release date, the movie would likely be Holland's last solo Spider-Man movie before that deadline, making his future unpredictable.

5 Spider-Man 4 Could Be The Venom Vs Spider-Man Movie Fans Want Tom Hardy Would Have To Return Close While the piece of the Venom symbiote that stayed in the MCU in Spider-Man: No Way Home could theoretically lead to any character becoming Venom, even the MCU's Eddie Brock, whenever he debuts, the most exciting scenario would be for Tom Hardy to come back. Venom: The Last Dance will be the actor's final Venom movie in Sony's Spider-Man Universe. Through the multiverse, Venom could end up getting pulled into the MCU for good at the end of the film.
Spider-Man 4 could see Peter bond with the symbiote and become increasingly violent, as he is currently at his lowest in the MCU and thus should be more easily influenced by the symbiote. Hardy's Venom would recognize the symbiote and try to stop Spider-Man and get the piece of Venom back. This way, Spider-Man 4 would subvert expectations and present Spider-Man as the antagonist for a major fight with Venom.

4 Spider-Man 4 Could Shift The Status Quo With Black Cat, Gwen Stacy, & Harry Osborn Spider-Man Goes Back To Basics Close After the multiverse event that was Spider-Man: No Way Home, it would be good for Holland's Spider-Man 4 to take a street-level route. There are a few ways in which that could still fit the "significant event" comment from Sony's chairman, and one of the best would be to focus on how the movie presents a new era for the MCU's Spider-Man.
Peter Parker has a clean slate. His girlfriend and friends do not remember him, Aunt May is dead, and Peter has finished high school, living alone in a small apartment. Spider-Man 4 can use that to bring a classic Spider-Man story. Holland could start a college trilogy, meeting fan-favorite characters like Gwen Stacy and Harry Osborn. Black Cat would also be a great new love interest for Peter, serving as both friend and foe. To cement the franchise's shift, Peter could also work for JJJ at The Daily Bugle.

3 Spider-Man 4 Could Introduce Miles Morales To The MCU Miles Deserves A Live-Action Debut Close Spider-Man 4 could also become a major event by introducing the second most popular version of the hero from the comics. The movie could hold the live-action debut of Miles Morales. With Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse set to end the animated adventures of the character on the big screen, Miles Morales should be one of the next heroes to get adapted into live-action in the coming years, and he would thrive in the MCU.
Spider-Man 4 could have Miles in a smaller role, not yet having powers. The movie could establish his relationship with Peter, setting him up to be mentored by Holland's Spider-Man after he gets bit by a spider at the end of the film. Peter Parker could be the Spider-Man of the Avengers, while Miles Morales also gets his superhero team, going from Spider-Man 4 to the MCU's Young Avengers, a team that has been set up in recent projects.

2 Spider-Man 4 Could Be An Adaptation Of Devil's Reign A Major Street-Level Event Close If Spider-Man 4 is a street-level story, then it could also be one of the MCU's biggest events yet. Rumors about the upcoming film claim that Spider-Man 4 could be an adaptation of Marvel Comics' Devil's Reign. In that story, Kingpin became the Mayor of New York City, outlawing vigilantes like Spider-Man and Daredevil and sending villains under his command to hunt them down.
The MCU has already made moves that way, with Kingpin's mayoral run being part of Daredevil: Born Again's plot. With The Defenders Saga MCU canon and the Punisher and other Netflix characters returning in the Daredevil series, Marvel would have quite the roster of street-level heroes Spider-Man could assemble to stop Wilson Fisk. After Spider-Man: No Way Home, Devil's Reign could finally see Daredevil and Spider-Man team up in costume in Spider-Man 4.

1 Spider-Man 4 Could Kill Peter Parker Kraven's Last Hunt Close Finally, the major event aspect of Spider-Man 4 could be none other than the death of Peter Parker. Kraven the Hunter was initially planned for Spider-Man: No Way Home before the movie shifted towards the multiversal adventure it became. Now, Spider-Man 4 should have no problem using the character, as Sony's response to the MCU team at the time was that Kraven "was unavailable until Sony established him in a solo movie."
This December, Aaron Taylor-Johnson will lead the SSU's Kraven the Hunter. As Spider-Man 4 would only be released from 2025 onwards, the movie could either cast a new Kraven or use Taylor-Johnson's through the multiverse. If Holland wants to be done with Spider-Man, then an adaptation of Kraven's Last Hunt, with the villain killing Peter Parker, could make Spider-Man 4 a shocking event Marvel fans will never forget.
Spider-Man 4 Spider-Man: Homecoming 4 is the first sequel to the MCU's Spider-Man trilogy starring Tom Holland as the titular wall-crawler. After wiping his identity for the public's memory in Spider-Man: No Way Home, Peter Parker continues his crime-fighting adventures without the aid of Iron Man technology or the support of his former allies.
