I’m excited and confused about this Spider-Man 4 cameo leak

Throughout the Spider-Verse is, understandably, the speak of the city proper now, and the Spider-Man film all people needs to see. And the consensus appears to be that it’s an awesome sequel, nevertheless it has many MCU followers much more determined for information about Spider-Man 4. In any case, there’s a giant writers’ strike taking place proper now, and we do not know how lengthy it’ll final.

However there’s no scarcity of Spider-Man 4 rumors, and the most recent one teases a giant cameo for the sequel. I’m already enthusiastic about it, however I’m additionally considerably confused. I’ll clarify after I provide the common warning: Huge spoilers may observe.

Sony’s sprawling Spider-Man universe

With Throughout the Spider-Verse out in theaters, producers have been ensuring we all know that Spider-Man 4 is certainly taking place. Moreover, Sony confirmed two further standalone tasks for the longer term. Spider-Girl and Miles Morales are getting standalone motion pictures. The previous shall be animated, whereas the latter is a live-action film.

Sony producer Amy Pascal confirmed these additions to Sony’s Spider-Man Universe with out offering any particulars. The tasks be a part of present SSU titles which might be within the works: Venom 3, Kraven the Hunter, El Muerto, and Madame Net.

How is all of this associated to Spider-Man 4? Keep in mind that Sony isn’t simply attempting to make its personal Spider-Man-centric universe. It’s additionally determined to tie it to the MCU, which stays the primary attraction relating to comedian e-book motion pictures.

Keep in mind that Sony made certain the Tom Holland cameo in Venom 2 leaked nicely earlier than the movie’s launch. After which it added that fully bonkers cameo on the finish of Morbius.

What I’m getting at is that a few of these photos shall be tied to the MCU together with Spider-Man 4, and all of the Spider-Man sequels Sony and Marvel may make collectively.

What about Spider-Verse 2?

One stunning exception to this rule appears to be Spider-Verse 2. The Spider-Verse motion pictures are nicely above all of the SSU movies Sony made lately. But they’re not a part of the SSU or MCU. The official line is that the Miles Morales multiverse within the animated motion pictures differs from MCU’s multiverse. The latter comprises the SSU, in fact.

Then once more, tying the Spider-Verse 2 to the MCU multiverse appears problematic, contemplating Sony’s decisions for the animated multiverse. I defined a number of occasions why that’s, and that’s the place the brand new Spider-Man 4 cameo rumor is available in.

Miles Morales to look in Spider-Man 4

Simply as Amy Pascal talked about a standalone live-action Miles Morales challenge this week, Twitter person Marvel Updates mentioned that Miles Morales would make its debut in Spider-Man 4.

Earlier rumors mentioned that Miles Morales might seem within the MCU down the street. It’s nonetheless an unresolved cliffhanger from the primary Tom Holland film. The actor himself mentioned after No Method Residence that he’d be able to cross on the Spider-Man baton to others, citing particularly the arrival of Miles Morales.

That wasn’t affirmation that Sony would deliver the character to the MCU. However an MCU crossover appears inevitable, given what occurred with Venom and Morbius. That’s thrilling.

The complicated half continues to be the way in which Sony dealt with the multiverse in Spider-Verse 2. The sequel will additional construct up the arc of the animated Miles Morales character. It will be superb if this Miles would be a part of the MCU and SSU in a live-action format.

However because the multiverses are separate, Sony can’t simply pull this Miles to the MCU. We’ll get a model new Miles Morales. That’s thrilling, too, in fact.

Then once more, that is the studio that greenlit the logic-defying Morbius credit scene. It might probably select to do no matter it looks like, hoping followers received’t care as a lot. The little particulars matter, nevertheless. It’s what makes (or made?) the MCU thrilling.

Hopefully, Marvel will steer the ship in the appropriate route, and Miles Morales’ arrival in Spider-Man 4 will make sense. I’m assuming, in fact, that the Spider-Man 4 rumor is correct.
