Initially billed as happening earlier than the occasions of Captain America: Civil Battle (which nonetheless appears to be true), Spider Man: Freshman Yr feels like it would even be taking the angle of a What If…? episode as a whole sequence. On this present, it appears the query shall be, “What if Norman Osborn grew to become Peter Parker’s mentor moderately than Tony Stark?” The reply consists of interactions with characters like Daredevil and Amadeus Cho, neither of which have been talked about in Peter Parker’s MCU journey on Earth-616 (because it was labeled in Physician Unusual within the Multiverse of Insanity). It’s unclear whether or not or not this may have any affect on the story in Earth-616, although as incursions between universes appear imminent with Avengers: Secret Wars being introduced because the conclusion to the Multiverse Saga. Any of the tales Marvel Studios is telling throughout the multiverse can discover themselves intersecting with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, ought to the writers see match.
Spider Man: Freshman Yr is about to debut on Disney+ in 2024, with a Season 2 already on the best way within the type of Spider-Man: Sophomore Yr.
