Tom Holland may have stolen our hearts as the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s resident Peter Parker back when Captain America: Civil War (2016) first debuted, but he’s not the only spider out there!

If there’s anything Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) and Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (2022) have proven, it’s that there’s a ton of Spider-folk to go around, and audiences love every last one of them.

Not only that, but Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021) proved that a crossover film between Marvel Studios and Sony isn’t just possible, in the right circumstances, it’s wildly successful!

It’s also worth mentioning that the post-credits scene for No Way Home all but confirmed Venom’s arrival into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So, that begs the question: who’s next? Well, Spider-Woman is. Or at least, she very well may be.

It’s no secret that Sony has been weaving its own web of Spider-Man character films. The catch? They’re all Spider-Man villains, without a hint of the wall-crawler himself. Neither Tom Holland, Andrew Garfield, nor Tobey Maguire makes any appearance in films such as Morbius (2022) or the Venom series.

So, it’ll be no surprise if upcoming films such as Kraven the Hunter and Madame Web also leave Peter Parker out of the story. But that doesn’t mean there will be no Spider-folk whatsoever…

It’s recently been confirmed that Sydney Sweeney will be playing Julia Carpenter, a version of Spider-Woman, in Sony’s upcoming Madame Web film.

But Inside the Magic has pushed the idea even further, implying that Sydney Sweeney is coming for Tom Holland’s spidery crown.

After all, Tom Holland has shown waning interest in playing the beloved wall-crawler, moving on to darker roles such as Danny Sullivan in The Crowded Room (2023).

Could Sydney Sweeney take his place as our resident spidery superhero? At this point, this is purely speculation, but it’s worth noting that the stars could easily align and make this happen.
