Kevin Feige Wants Spider-Man 4 to be a Grounded Story

New reports surrounding Tom Holland’s Spider-Man 4 suggest disagreements between Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige and Sony Pictures over the movie’s narrative. In an earlier interview, Kevin Feige confirmed the film is in development, saying, “We have the story. We have big ideas for that, and our writers are just putting pen to paper now.”

However, according to the insider Daniel Richtman, Feige and Holland are inclined towards a more grounded story, emphasizing character development and a focused narrative. In contrast, Sony Pictures is reportedly pushing for the return of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield to explore a larger multiversal spectacle in the next Spider-Man film.

There have been many claims about the unlikely return of Maguire and Garfield in the next installment, as the No Way Home closed hinting at the street-level Spider-Man. The introduction of Daredevil and Kingpin into the MCU has heightened fan anticipation for potential character crossovers and a Spider-Man-Daredevil team-up.
