RUMOR: Marvel Studios Wants SPIDER-VERSE's Spider-Man 2099 To Team Up With Kang In Upcoming AVENGERS Movies

In one of the wildest rumours we've shared here in quite some time, it's said that Marvel Studios has approached Sony Pictures about Across the Spider-Verse's Spider-Man 2099 teaming up with Kang...

Whatever Marvel Studios originally had planned for Avengers: The Kang Dynasty (now known simply as Avengers 5) and Avengers: Secret Wars has likely changed greatly in the past year or two.

The negative response to Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania caught the studio off guard, leading to Jeff Loveness reportedly being fired as the next Avengers movie's writer. With that, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness scribe Michael Waldron took over writing duties on both projects. 

The plan now may be to shift the spotlight away from Kang, though the villain is still expected to be a key part of the Multiverse Saga (albeit with a new actor playing him in place of Jonathan Majors).

Today, we have a bonkers rumour to share with you which claims that Marvel Studios wants to throw Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse's Spider-Man 2099 into the mix! 

According to @Cryptic4KQual, a reliable runtime and trailer leaker who has shared some accurate inside information in the past, "Miguel's knowledge and experience with the multiverse (Spider-Verse) would've seen a Kang variant forming an alliance with him."

"Power for Kang, stability for Miguel. Some time back, I heard that Marvel wanted this alliance but Sony thought Miguel was a huge ask."

"Though this is most likely not happening again (you know why), I heard Miguel O'hara is still on the table and that there's a great possibility he could make a live action debut in the near future with a new team," they added.

We don't know what team the scooper is referring to there, though The Cosmic Circus' Alex Perez has also hinted that there's some truth to what sounds like a pretty wild claim on the surface. 

Had this happened - or if it eventually does - we'd imagine Miguel would continue to serve in the role of an unwilling antagonist while trying to save the Multiverse, with Moon Knight star Oscar Isaac reprising the role in live-action. That's a mind-blowing prospect but might not be the craziest thing that happens in these Multiversal adventures. 

It sounds like Sony wasn't willing to play ball, anyway, so it might be best not to get too excited about this becoming a reality.

"Reliable runtime and trailer leaker"

Weve really become so low as a species that this is now a profession
JFerguson - 6/15/2024, 3:56 AM
I’m all for consistency across the two media, but Sony has a tendency of agreeing to do a favor for marvel only to retaliate a million times worse.

I’m afraid Sony will just yoink spidey out of the MCU one day and churn out more madame web quality shlock

@JFerguson - Who cares as long as we get some Into The Spiderverse quality works?
FireandBlood - 6/15/2024, 4:54 AM
It’ll end with Miguel smoking Kang, so I’m in.
ProfessorWhy - 6/15/2024, 6:24 AM
@FireandBlood - that's going to make @malatrova extremely jealous

I believe this 100%. Atleast make it sound convincing

Of course Sony won't be playing ball. Lord and Miler's spider-verse is the only thing they got going for them.

But it's not up to them what Lord and Miller do. If Marvel gets them on board then Sony will have lost the creative driving force of their whole spiderverse franchise, beyond what they've already signed up for.
ObserverIO - 6/15/2024, 7:42 AM
Just as a fan though this very news is exciting AF.
dagenspear - 6/15/2024, 8:14 AM
This would be funny to me. MCU running to the Sonyverse for interesting characters.
NathanielX - 6/15/2024, 8:14 AM
Or end X-Men 97 second season with a grey skinned Apocalypse creating Batle world Played by now CG enhaced Oscar Issac.

If the case, Sony to MCU right now:

This is stupid fan fiction from a Twitter bot, aye carumba!
Slotherin - 6/15/2024, 9:12 AM
That's not canon
TheVisionary25 - 6/15/2024, 9:50 AM
@Slotherin - it might be in the same Multiverse though.
ShimmyShimmyYA - 6/15/2024, 9:59 AM
@TheVisionary25 - it shouldn’t. They should let that just be its own thing
TheVisionary25 - 6/15/2024, 10:16 AM
@ShimmyShimmyYA - I agree

I’m just saying that since we got a glimpse of Andrew’s Spider Man from TASM 1 , I think it’s very possible the MCU is in the same muktiverse as these Spiderverse films.
Slotherin - 6/15/2024, 2:17 PM
@TheVisionary25 - I was just making a joke based off Spider-Verse 2

The Multiverse concept canonizes everything to the concept of a Multiverse.
As you said, MCU is in a shared multiverse with Sony universes...
BobbyDrake - 6/15/2024, 9:28 AM
No they don’t!!!
TheVisionary25 - 6/15/2024, 10:35 AM
I could see Miguel only joining a Kang variant if he’s tracked by him or unaware of his ulterior motives..

As rigid as the Spiderverse version of Miguel can be , he’s still a hero and would likely try to stop Kang if need be.

I’m glad it’s not happening though
Izaizaiza - 6/15/2024, 10:45 AM
I think Avengers 5 should just open with Spider-Man, and then another Spider-Man and then another and another until the entire world is covered in Spider-Men. And then it just collapses into a big red and blue puddle, floating through space... Pull back to see the watcher, with one tear, slowly falling down his cheek. Fin.

God I love the multiverse. Not tired of it at all.
cadunovaes01 - 6/15/2024, 11:13 AM
So, Oscar Isaac playin double duty in McU? Moon Knight e Miguel OHara?
ModHaterSLADE - 6/15/2024, 1:57 PM
I'm down with it if it gives OScar Issac more to do.
