Going into Spider-Man: Throughout the Spider-Verse, I hoped the film would connect with the bigger MCU multiverse. That the characters from Into, Throughout, and Past the Spider-Verse can be accessible to Marvel in Spider-Man 4 and Avengers motion pictures down the highway. All of the preliminary confusion went away as quickly as I noticed the sequel. I had a means for Spider-Verse 2 to connect with Spider-Man 4 and every other SSU and MCU.
It’s not wishful pondering, both. An insider revealed that Sony consulted with key Marvel writers for Spider-Verse 2. That data ought to handle anybody’s considerations about Spider-Verse 2’s place within the grand scheme. However the identical insider additionally delivered a number of thrilling updates in regards to the Spider-Man: Throughout the Spider-Verse‘s potential ties to Spider-Man 4.
Earlier than I proceed, it is best to know that massive Throughout the Spider-Verse spoilers will observe.
Why I need the Spider-Verse to be a part of the MCU multiverse
Into and Throughout the Spider-Verse are fairly probably the very best Spider-Man motion pictures that Sony ever made. It’s all due to Spider-Verse 2, actually. And I embrace the MCU Spider-Man motion pictures within the record.
It’s completely fantastic for the Spider-Verse trilogy to exist exterior the MCU and Sony’s Spider-Man Universe (SSU). However leaving the Spider-Verse characters behind can be such a waste. That’s why I wish to see extra of them after Past premieres subsequent March. If it may well make that launch date amid the writers’ strike, that’s.
Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) and Spider-Gwen (Hailee Steinfeld) are two such characters, though loads of Spider-Verse 2 Spider-Folks would deserve a spot in future SSU/MCU adventures. Even a nod in Spider-Man 4 can be nice.
The latter can’t be a multiverse film. Sony and Marvel simply pulled that trick with No Method Residence. We will’t have one other assembly of Spider-Folks so quickly. Nevertheless it doesn’t should be a multiverse movie for a connection to exist.
Throughout the Spider-Verse is MCU multiverse canon
Alex Perez stated in a Cosmic Circle podcast that Sony talked to Jeff Loveness and Michael Waldron whereas making Spider-Verse 2. That’s as a result of the Spide-Verse is a part of the bigger MCU multiverse, even when it doesn’t make sense.
The occasions in Throughout the Spider-Verse are MCU canon and could be referenced in live-action motion pictures.
Tom Holland’s Spider-Man didn’t cameo in Spider-Verse 2, as rumors stated, however Perez stated they deliberate to have him within the sequel. Carrying the costume under, not the one Peter makes on the finish of Spider-Man 3.
Holland’s Spidey is simply one of many variants they needed to reduce. However these further Spider-Folks would possibly seem in Past the Spider-Verse subsequent yr. And we’d have Miles Morales & Co. go to live-action universes from different Spider-Man motion pictures. It’s unclear what these live-action realities can be, nonetheless.
Throughout the Spider-Verse’s massive Easter egg is strictly what you suppose
With all that in thoughts, there may be one massive hyperlink between Spider-Verse 2 and Spider-Man 4. The live-action Prowler (Donald Glover) that Hobie (Daniel Kaluuya) captured someplace within the Spider-Verse isn’t a variant of the character we noticed in Homecoming. It’s the identical character from Earth-616, who would possibly seem in Spider-Man 4.
Perez referred to an older rumor that Sony was testing Glover’s Prowler costume. He assumed on the time it was manufacturing work for Spider-Man 4, which must be a street-level journey. It seems that Sony wished to make use of the live-action Prowler variant for Spider-Verse 2.
Will we see the Prowler within the subsequent Spidey film? Nothing is assured right now. We all know the Spider Society is engaged on grabbing Spider-Man-related villains from realities they don’t belong and sending them again house. That’s what they intend to do with this Prowler model. However that’s not sufficient to say Spider-Man 4 can have a live-action Prowler in it.
Let’s additionally keep in mind the current rumor that stated Spider-Man 4 will ship a live-action model of Miles Morales.
