Rumours about who will direct Spider-Man 4 continue to swirl, with Ms. Marvel and Batgirl directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah among those supposedly in the mix. 

Jon Watts helmed Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man: Far From Home, and Spider-Man: No Way Home but appears ready to move on from the web-slinger. Despite also leaving The Fantastic Four, Kevin Feige is said to be keen on Watts returning to the MCU for another project. 

Appearing at a recent screening event for Bad Boys: Ride or Die, Fallah was asked to speak on the Spider-Man 4 rumours and his reaction (refusing to answer the question while saying "I can't talk about that...") may be telling. 

While we're not suggesting this has confirmed his and El Arbi's involvement with the movie, it seems highly likely the duo are likely contenders.

After making a name for themselves with Bad Boys for Life, El Arbi and Fallah were enlisted by Marvel Studios to direct Ms. Marvel's premiere and finale. Those were the strongest episodes of the season, with stylistic choices which got fans excited for their approach to Batgirl. Unfortunately, Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav chose to scrap the near-completed movie as a tax write-off.

"All I will say is that we have the story," Feige said about Holland's highly anticipated Spider-Man return last February. "We have big ideas for that, and our writers are just putting pen to paper now."

See what you make of Fallah's reaction in the video below.

Alongside Tom Holland, Zendaya is expected to reprise her role as MJ in Spider-Man 4. Sydney Sweeny is rumoured to be playing Black Cat, and we're anticipating Charlie Cox, Vincent D'Onofrio, and Paul Rudd making appearances as Daredevil, The Kingpin, and Ant-Man. 

As for who could direct Spider-Man 4, plenty of names are floating around online. Among them are Justin Lin, Drew Goddard and, most recently, Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah and Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire helmer Adam Wingard.

In terms of plot details, those are few and far between; the latest rumour to have surfaced suggests the plan is to pit Spidey against The Kingpin's goons, including Shocker and The Scorpion. The latter would acquire the Venom symbiote introduced in Spider-Man: No Way Home, only for Peter Parker to eventually don the alien suit. 

Spider-Man 4 doesn't currently have a release date.

Batgirl looked terrible, not surprised it was cancelled.
FinnishDude - 5/26/2024, 7:17 AM
@SethBullock - We didn't even have a trailer. Only one official publicity photo and mostly paparazzi shots.
vectorsigma - 5/26/2024, 7:20 AM
@SethBullock - from some pictures??? Come on.
SethBullock - 5/26/2024, 8:01 AM
@FinnishDude - Yeah, and that looked terrible, lol. 🤷
lazlodaytona - 5/26/2024, 8:30 AM
@vectorsigma - I agree with you about just from pictures. However, the Batgirl costume looked VERY CWish.
dragon316 - 5/26/2024, 9:05 AM
@lazlodaytona - that’s comic accuracy for you
lazlodaytona - 5/26/2024, 9:09 AM
@dragon316 - it's a shame for sure
marvel72 - 5/26/2024, 1:59 PM
@SethBullock - Yeah it did look bad in photos but Warner Bros did watch it and did decide to scrap it so it must have been shit.
JDL - 5/26/2024, 3:05 PM
@marvel72 - The primary reason it was cancelled was that it was designed to provide entry points and other DCU (old) story service. The DCU was canned so this movie was a useless orphan.

If Bad Boys 4 makes more than Furiosa, I'm gonna be mad. It's crazy how the masses avoid amazing movies just to see dog shit like that. Fix this stupid 1 month to streaming deal, it's screwing over the movie theaters and it keeps the bums at home. Get your lazy asses off your couch and go see movies in theaters. They're open 7 days a week, they have matinee shows that are cheap af. I'm tired of the masses going to Marvel movies and or something that's mid af, only to shun fantastic movies like Furiosa. [frick] all the normies and cheap ass clowns, there's no excuse
bobevanz - 5/26/2024, 7:09 AM
Fall guy released on streaming 2.5 WEEKS LATER, 5 years ago it would have made at least 400 million just from keeping it in theaters for 6 months. This is ridiculous
vectorsigma - 5/26/2024, 7:17 AM
@bobevanz - im going to watch both furiosa and bad boys 4. Already watched fall guy.

Yeah, too bad fall guy underperformed. They had good marketing on that as well and it has top talemt around it. People are really lazy to go to a theater unless it is a fomo event like barbenheimer.

Will D&W have the same effect? We will see.

Also, HR released this article
vectorsigma - 5/26/2024, 7:19 AM
@bobevanz - on a side note, i enjoyed bad boys 3 so i disagree that 4 will be bad. Adil and Billal are great directors imo.

Will be interesting for them to have spider-man 4 because that will have a big budget. My point is they were to make do of a small budget, what more a bigger one
Patient2670 - 5/26/2024, 12:44 PM
@bobevanz - I think the theatre chains have some responsibility in this as well. These movies need to recoup their costs and ever rising costs to go see them at a theatre without incentive to spend more money, make streaming very attractive at the moment. Even matinee prices in the larger markets are more expensive than regular ticket prices in smaller markets. Movies like Madam Web will bring in more viewers on streaming platforms , even if it is out of morbid curiosity. I don't know if that's a sustainable model, but for now it's working for them. It's a shame, but it's not a one sided shame. Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if we see some of these exhibition companies exploring their own streaming options, hybridizing the theatre chains with the home viewing market. And besides, aside from franchise specific fans, there is really no difference between Marvel Movies, Bad Boys movies and Mad Max Saga movies at this point. Furiosa is in no way, the small underdog indipendent movie that the original was - And that's absolutely fine, I can't wait to see it. But it is in fact a big budget, studio, spectacle movie,as are those others.

This is probably just that old promotional trick. They got a movie in theaters right now, they need some buzz.

...I hope.
ObserverIO - 5/26/2024, 7:20 AM
Who was it gonna be before? They were gonna have another bad director before these guys...
ObserverIO - 5/26/2024, 7:31 AM
Oh that's right it was the dude who directed Godzilla X Kong - The New Empire. See that movie needed buzz too.

So lets just hope that's what this is, because otherwise we've seen the last good live action Sony Spider-Man movie ever with NWH.
lazlodaytona - 5/26/2024, 8:36 AM
I think MARVEL just needs to take a year-long break after DP3. It's so over saturated that every film has to have other major players in it just to try and get another hit.

The one wise thing WB has ever done is, after last year's disastrous run, they've taken this year off (outside of JOKER 2, but that's an elseworlds film). Kinda like a body cleanse.
TheVisionary25 - 5/26/2024, 9:12 AM
If he can’t talk about it , it seems like they might indeed be in the running for the job…

If so then i would be down for it since I have enjoyed the work of theirs I have seen so far in Bad Boys for Life & Ms Marvel.

I could see it working and they would certainly bring a cool stylistic flair to it that could be fun!!.

I sure hope this doesn't happen.

Spider-Man is the big earner, now they wanna ruin that. There are too many good directors out there to avoid this screw up.
slickrickdesigns - 5/26/2024, 10:17 AM
And tomorrow it’ll be the Barbie director and the next day it’ll be the Oppenheimer director and the next day it’ll be the baseketball director and so on until marvel actually announces a director.
Cbm news and YouTubers are just posting anything on the internet nowadays and rumors change day to day. So I’ll say none of this “news” is news even if you put the label “rumors/possible spoilers”.

Bad Boys III was so bad… it felt like a student film where the assignment was to emulate Michael Bays visual style. It was poorly done, the writing was flat out bad, and neither lead wanted to be there, least of all Lawrence. He just shuffled around and mumbled his lines the whole time looking distracted and like he couldn’t wait to go take a shit.
Patient2670 - 5/26/2024, 12:26 PM
I wouldn't assume this means anything in particular. It's more than likely that if these guys (who are already part of the marvel stable) met with the powers that be, they were instructed not to comment on any discussions, one way or the other. The studios know these questions will be asked and the non committal responses It fuel chatter on boards like this, passively promotinng the project while acting as a barometer to gague fan response towards any potential directors. Pretty standard.
marvel72 - 5/26/2024, 2:01 PM
I don't think this will happen, having your movie scrapped it's a good thing.
marvel72 - 5/26/2024, 2:01 PM
@marvel72 - Isn't a good thing.
Batmangina - 5/26/2024, 6:52 PM
If the dumpy broad from She Hulk isn't available, the Ms Marvel and Batgirl crew is DEFINITELY ready for Spider-Man!

l0rdleg0las - 5/26/2024, 8:25 PM
I'm good with this. I enjoy their visual style in their work.
NinnesMBC - 5/27/2024, 1:24 AM
I agree they're contenders right now so they have to keep it under wraps. I hope they're chosen though, Spider-Man would be in good hands.

And also would be one of the ultimate ways of telling WBD to GTFO for what they did to their Batgirl film. Spider-Man 4 succeeding under their helm would also be a huge FU to Peter Safran playing such a yes-man when he said their movie was "impossible to save" or something like that.
