Marvel proved that its Midas touch extended to Spider-Man with his inclusion in numerous MCU offerings. His surprise cameo in Captain America: Civil War shocked many fans with being the first character outside the Marvel Cinematic Universe to be shared with Disney. Spider-Man: Homecoming established a new series of movies for the webslinger. Despite a brief rocky road after Avengers: Endgame Disney was able to retain him for one more feature film.

It appears that the new trilogy begun with Homecoming, and then Far From Home, may continue the theme. Rumors are circulating that the final installment will be called Home Run. This seems plausible as Disney has avoided using the Spider-Man 1, or 2, or 3 nomenclature associated with previous incarnations. These are not the only rumors happening either.

Potential New Characters

Something each of the three different versions of Spider-Man have had in common are their attempts in introducing new characters. Sometimes with amazing success, while others were lukewarm at best. Potential leaks are surfacing for new characters in this next movie. On the villain side of the fence it is possible we may see the first live action version of Kraven the Hunter. Another potential villain might be The Scorpion. Disney recently finished its deal with Netflix and in doing so took back numerous characters from that universe. Another rumor now suggests that some members of The Defenders could be joining. It sounds like Charlie Cox’s Daredevil will be making an appearance.

All rumors should be taken with a grain of salt but anything is possible. Disney has often shown their ability to provide surprises with the Spider-Man franchise. His movies also serve as great vehicles for introducing other characters. Both Sony and Disney have used the character’s appearances to launch movies from them such as Sony’s Venom and Homecoming.
