One of the burning questions that fans need to answer beforehand Avengers: The Kang Dynasty And Secret Wars roll around is the identity of the superhero set to lead the next iteration of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, both on-screen and in the credits.
After all, Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans have been billed first and second in all four Earth’s Mightiest Heroes assemblages to date, while Iron Man and Captain America served as the heart and soul of the team. So those are big shoes to fill, but a new rumor has it that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man will be the one to step into the breach.
Of course, there was some backlash to the suggestion of having a character who will be college-age by the time the double-header lands in 2025-2026 to oversee a squad full of almighty cosmic deities, literal gods, and battle veterans. but some fans have pointed out that there is precedent, and it was great.
hold audiences of a certain generation Spider-Man: The Animated Series dear to her nostalgic chest, and it’s definitely one of the best episodic two-dimensional adventures the web-slinger has ever been a part of. The three-chapter arc is being touted as one of the best standalone stories the classic TV show has ever told, and could suggest how Peter Parker might end up being the one leading the Avengers back into battle from the start.
Of course, it’s all just rumor and hearsay at this point, but Spider-Man is arguably the biggest and most popular weapon in the MCU’s arsenal, so having Holland at the helm would make a lot of sense.
