Spider-Man movies have always been quite a deal of fun for fans of all age groups. While the character was first brought on screen, with Tobey Maguire in the role, in the early 2000s, Spider-Man is now a part of The Avengers after the trilogy of Tom Holland featuring Spider-Man movies. Following the end of the trilogy with Spider-Man: No Way Home, which also featured Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield from earlier films, there is a new movie in development from Sony and Marvel Studios.
Spider-Man 4, which may reprise Tom Holland as the titular character, is reported to be in advanced pre-production.

Spider-Man 4, which would be a follow-up to the trilogy of the Tom Holland-featured Spider-Man movies, is said to be in the stage of advanced pre-production. The news comes from Cosmic Circus’ Alex Perez who took the liberty of announcing the aforementioned news on his Twitter account.
From what I understand, certain things are still being worked out BTS. Hopefully they pan out since we just learned #SpiderMan4 has now shifted into a more advanced level of Pre-Production. An announcement could be imminent but we’ll see if Sony comes through for #CCXP

However, the news is not confirmed by either Sony or Marvel Studios, nor is the return of Tom Holland for the sequel.
Tom Holland would be the first actor who would feature as Spider-Man four times, surpassing Tobey Maguire’s franchise of three Spider-Man films. However, Tobey Maguire would’ve had a competition with Holland if the fourth installment of Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man film series did get out. The film, if not abandoned, would’ve reportedly finalized the break-up between Peter Parker and Mary-Jane Watson.
What would Spider-Man 4 mean for MCU?
Tom Holland made a debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe when he appeared in Captain America: Civil War as a part of Iron Man’s team. The actor went on to be featured in a trilogy of Spider-Man films as the lead character, alongside playing the role in other Marvel movies.
The Uncharted actor last appeared in Spider-Man: No Way Home alongside the former Spider-Men Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. While the contract was made for a trilogy, it has been recent news that a new trilogy has been signed to be developed.
The new sequel to the trilogy could lead to the inclusion of Spider-Man into the upcoming Phases of Marvel Studios as everyone would gear up to battle against Kang the Conqueror. With the appearance of Tom Holland in Venom: Let there be Carnage, the sequel could also have a classic Spider-Man versus Venom battle.
Spider-Man 4 is rumored to be released in July 2024, while Spider-Man: No Way Home is available for streaming on Netflix.
