If a new rumor is to be believed, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will include Tom Holland’s Peter Parker. After the Academy Award-winning 2018 animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which introduced fans to Shameik Moore’s Miles Morales, a new rumor has emerged relating the animated sequel to Holland’s Spider-Man from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Holland’s Peter Parker will not only feature in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, but he was also one of the reasons for the film’s postponement from last October to this June, according to Jeff Sneider on THE HOT MIC.

Sneider goes on to say that he learned Miles was going to “a live-action realm with Tom Holland.” When Holland did not return as an animated Spider-Man in Marvel’s What If…?, the prospect of his starring in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse — but in live-action — is interesting. See the complete quote below:
I heard that part of the reason for the delay – because Across the Spider-Verse was postponed – was to get Tom Holland in that film, and that one of the realities Miles might wind up travelling to (…) is a live-action dimension with Tom Holland.

Holland’s Spider-Man in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse makes sense in light of the actor’s most recent film as the wall-crawler, 2021’s generational event Spider-Man: No Way Home. In that film, Holland’s MCU Peter Parker was joined by Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s live-action versions of Spider-Man. With Holland’s Spider-Man now understanding how the multiverse works, and the MCU now in the midst of its Multiverse Saga, a Holland MCU Spider-Man crossover with Miles Morales from the animated Spider-Verse series might be in the works.

Rumors about Holland’s involvement in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse initially surfaced at the close of last year. The rumours reached Spider-Verse series producer Christopher Miller, who said, “let’s say… Everything is possible in the universe,” when questioned about Holland’s suspected participation with the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse sequel. If Sony chose to utilise Holland — or possibly Maguire and Garfield as well — there would be nothing barring the firm from doing so. Although Marvel Studios and Sony share Holland’s Spider-Man, the next Spider-Man 4 might have no MCU links due to a conflict between the firms.

Although Marvel and Sony are now sharing Spider-Man, Sony owns all film rights to the character. While the companies’ relationship has since been reestablished following their 2019 split — with the phenomenal box office run of Spider-Man: No Way Home in the middle of the pandemic and the start of work on Holland’s Spider-Man 4 in the MCU — the situation demonstrated how Holland could appear in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. Miles might visit Holland’s Spider-Man in either the MCU or an unidentified live-action world that may be thought of as home to a version of the record-breaking Spider-Man MCU movies, enabling Miles to either join or leave the MCU.
