Spider-Man: No Way Home swings past the multiverse and into The Fantastic Four.
Well, sort of. On September 2019, I scooped that the Baxter Building, the Fantastic Four’s high-tech HQ, will appear at the end of Spider-Man: No Way Home.
In addition, it’ll be located where the old Avengers Tower was.
Whether it’s in the final scene or a post-credit sequence remains to be seen.
Keep in mind that when I leaked this, Marvel Studios hadn’t announced Spider-Man: No Way Home director would helm the Fantastic Four reboot.
That didn’t happen until December 10, 2020, over a year later.
Furthermore, on the Lords of the Longbox YouTube channel I revealed that Spider-Man would appear in The Fantastic Four movie.
Again, this was in September 2019; there weren’t even hints of Jon Watts directing The Fantastic Four then.
Since that time, insiders revealed that Marvel Studios hadn’t changed their plans.
I explained that Reed Richards, the leader of the Fantastic Four, would be Peter Parker’s mentor.
Some fans expressed concern that Parker would again have a mentor figure a la the late Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.).
After all, Parker has to grow up sometime; does he still need training wheels?
That’s a legitimate complaint.
In addition, Doctor Strange is also rumored to be a mentor figure to Parker in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Well, I recently wrote that it’s probably not Doctor Strange in the trailer.
The oddball behavior and changes in behavior will have anyone’s Spidey sense tingling.
The relationship between Parker and Richards, also known as Mr. Fantastic, is different.
Science whiz Parker is in awe of Richards’ super genius brain.
Spider-Man: No Way Home Could Pave Way For The Fantastic Four In The MCU
He’s not trying to show Parker how to be a better superhero or deliver lessons in magic.
Sources add that Marvel Studios still intends on having Spider-Man appear in Watts’ first Fantastic Four movie.
In the comics, Spider-Man met the Fantastic Four in just his second appearance.
He tried to join them in The Amazing Spider-Man No. 1 in 1963.
He will provide a smooth bridge between Watts’ films as he leaps from one MCU franchise to another.
Moreover, Parker will begin establishing his friendship with future BFF, the Human Torch.
The Spider-Man/Human Torch relationship is essential Marvel Comics history.
I wrote about Marvel Studios’ plans for them on February 28, 2021.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is even bigger than you imagine.
Phase Four is looking Fantastic.
