While the duo of Ant-Man and Daredevil may be unexpected, it isn’t hard to believe they could show up in the MCU’s next Spider-Man movie. Ant-Man and Spidey have already crossed paths multiple times, facing off in “Captain America: Civil War” before uniting as fellow Avengers in “Avengers: Endgame.” The idea of a Spider-Man-Daredevil team-up is also logical, as the pair frequently collaborates in the original comics.
The MCU iteration of Spider-Man has already set a precedent for major crossovers with other characters in each entry. Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man features in “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury appears in “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” and Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange stars in “Spider-Man: No Way Home.” As such, it makes sense for the next entry to continue the tradition of other heroes showing up as part of the story.
The actors behind these specific characters seem to be on board with the idea of a “Spider-Man” crossover. Paul Rudd said in an interview with PopBuzz that he and Tom Holland shared a desire to collaborate closely on a future MCU project. Meanwhile, Holland has told outlets like The Hollywood Reporter that he’d like Spidey and Daredevil to have a full-fledged adventure together.
