New updates have revealed that Spider-Man 4 may not feature Kingpin and Daredevil. Marvel Studios discussed their several animated shows at the SDCC earlier this year. However, Spider-Man: Freshman Year became a significant highlight of the event. The animated series, set to premiere in 2024, would explore the origin of Spider-Man in the MCU. But it would not follow the Spider-Man from the leading 616 MCU. The first look at the animated series also revealed several characters who would join Peter Parker’s journey.
Following the announcement, there were also rumors that Daredevil and Kingpin would also have a special appearance in the animated series. However, the special appearance has caused certain doubts about Charlie Cox joining Tom Holland in the upcoming Spider-Man 4.
Kingpin And Daredevil to Appear in Spider-Man: Freshman Year
A new report from The Cosmic Circus has revealed Daredevil and Kingpin’s special appearances in the animated series. Charlie Cox will voice his character Daredevil in Freshman Year. The report has revealed that Daredevil will have a fight sequence similar to his hallway fight scene from the Netflix series.
It was also reported that Vincent D’Onofrio could reprise his role as Kingpin in the animated series. He would voice his character for the series, and Kingpin is one of the reasons Daredevil is in the show.
Although nothing is confirmed yet, Spider-Man and Daredevil are expected to join hands to take down the crime lord. But this has caused doubts about Charlie Cox’s and Vincent D’Onofrio’s appearances in Spider-Man 4. Charlie Cox had a special appearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home, which led fans to believe that he would join Tom Holland in the next Spider-Man movie.
Spider-Man 4 May Not Feature Kingpin And Daredevil
The recent update has revealed that Daredevil and Spider-Man will team up to take down Kingpin in the animated series. However, a similar team-up has been rumored to take place in Spider-Man 4. The film is expected to release as a part of phase 5 of the MCU in 2024.
There might be a possibility that the duo would fight a different villain in the next Spider-Man film. But considering that the animated series and the film are expected to release during the same time frame, the story may feel repetitive to Marvel fans.
Although the events are reportedly taking place in an alternate universe, the story would still feel a lot similar even with a different villain. The studio has still not confirmed Daredevil’s appearance in Spider-Man 4.
The new rumor may have caused doubts about a potential face-off between Kingpin and Spider-Man. However, they are engaged in several combats throughout comics. Considering the upcoming Spider-Man movies would revolve around the street-level world, the superhero may cross paths with the crime lord in the future someday.
Spider-Man 4 is rumored to release on 12 July 2024.
