Will Spider-Man 4 have a Spider-Son?

Will <em>Spider-Man 4</em> have a Spider-Son?

Is Peter Parker going to have a child in Spider-Man 4 or does this mean Carnage will be the villain?

It appears that Sony is on the search for a 2 year old Caucasian toddler with red hair for the upcoming comic book sequel Spider-Man 4. SpoilerTV has intercepted a casting notice for the film, which strangely only features one role, a character named “Toddler Boy”.

Here is the decription from the casting breakdown:

2 or 3 year old boy to play 2 year old, Caucasian with RED HAIR, an adorable toddler with an engaging personality, on set experience preferred. IDENTICAL TWINS ONLY

The fact that they are looking specificly for young boy with RED hair leds us to believe that the child will be of relation to Mary Jane (played in the series by Kirsten Dunst). By the time the fourth film is in theaters, it will have been four years since the last time we saw Peter Parker of MJ on the big screen. Could it be that they have since begun creating a family? Or is it possible that Mary Jane is somehow no longer with Peter, and has a child of her own?

It's also possible that the child could be acting as a young Cletus Kasady, who grows up to be the villain Carnage!

Because it worked so well for Superman!

But I do doubt it's Peter's son. I highly doubt it.

Well MJ did have a child (that died),so it isnt that inaccurate
ThisFan - 11/16/2009, 1:51 PM
No no no if they give him a kid I will not even rent this movie
InSpace - 11/16/2009, 1:55 PM
Maybe its Curt Conners kid

What does that part about "IDENTICAL TWINS ONLY" mean ?
invalensname - 11/16/2009, 2:23 PM
Oh no. MJ doesnt get kidnapped, its his son in this one! Or- shock- both!!! Drama! Whinging!
ecksmanfan - 11/16/2009, 2:27 PM
Looks like Spidey did some "web slingin!"
Talontd - 11/16/2009, 2:40 PM

Alot of directors will request TWINS because if one isn't cooperating than you can always try the other. Makes alot of sense given a child that youngs' temperment, think Mary-Kate & Ashley. The two of them shared one role on Full House.

At least what i'm assuming...
Bohemiben - 11/16/2009, 2:52 PM
@Talontd - I think you're partially correct, but I believe it has to do more with Child Labor laws. Kids can only work so many hours a day, so when you have twins you can keep filming normal "grown up" hours.

the main villains i want to see in spiderman4,5,and 6 are the lizard,more doc ock,scorpion,venom,and carnage.kraven would work in the lizard story,and mysterio would work in another story if bruce cambell turns out to be mysterio.ooohhhh wait we are talking them being a family.sorry
gorgeousgeeks - 11/16/2009, 3:12 PM
I don't see why they would make the same mistake that they made in Superman Returns. I thought it was interesting, but it had such a backlash of negativity.

There are rules about swearing in Spiderman comic books. I can't believe that Peter would have an illegitimate child. I think (not sure) in "Sins of the Past" Peter told MJ that he never slept with Gwen Stacy and she was THE love of his life.

Peter has had enough drama in his life. Baby issues is overkill. Besides, his first born is a girl named May.

Talontd & Bohemiben - Thanks for the info. Parker and mary jane having a kid dosen't make sense considering how their relationship was in spider-man 3
Gweedo - 11/16/2009, 3:17 PM
Maybe it is for a dream sequence that Peter has. Like him imagining having a family and some one attacking them. Thus pushing him away from keeping Mary Jane in his life. And then we don't have to watch Dunst any more!
Betty - 11/16/2009, 3:41 PM
crap, who knows
georgia49th - 11/16/2009, 5:14 PM
I thought they had a daughter., oh wait alternate universe
LEEE777 - 11/16/2009, 5:19 PM
WTF is this??????
georgia49th - 11/16/2009, 5:21 PM
this reminds me of that 70's book explaining why Superman couldn't have kids to begin with but lo' a movie made and he has a child by Lois ., let us not forget he did Lois an behold he knocked her up.
Now we know and knowing is half the battle..

@ talontd and bohemian

both you're answers combined are exactly right, lol. child labor laws prevent babies from acting or "working" for a certain amount of time during any given day. also, the temperament thing is also used a lot because like you said, you never know what a baby is going to act like :)

also, the mary kate and ashley thing on full house is a perfect example
jazzman - 11/16/2009, 5:22 PM
maybe its Cletus Kasady they might use him in a flashback story
CorndogBurglar - 11/16/2009, 5:24 PM
i doubt very seriously it will be cletus kassidy. raimi hates venom's character and you would think that also means he hates carnage, considering they are very similar characters. but then again...carnage would be the only villain needed, and there ARE rumors of only having one villain.

i just don't want carnage in it, though.

Once TOBEYS done!!

also, just because there is a casting call for a baby doesn't even mean its going to be a main character. it might just be some baby spidey saves. although the red hair thing makes ya wonder!
CorndogBurglar - 11/16/2009, 5:27 PM

jake gyllenhaal would make an excellent spiderman! maybe if marvel gets the rights back!! cha-ching!
Watchtower31 - 11/16/2009, 5:28 PM
I really doubt its Peter's son. I never remember one being mentioned in the books. But Raimi doesnt really stick to those anyways.
CorndogBurglar - 11/16/2009, 5:30 PM
@ watchtower

the only time they mention pete having a kid is during One More Day, but the kid is a little girl, and its the kid that pete and MJ would have had if spidey didn't make the deal with Mephisto. so she wasn't even real, just mephisto in disguise.

also, i think what MJ whispered in Mephisto's ear during OMD was "I want to remember". she seems like she remembers everything about her and pete's past.
Weapon420 - 11/16/2009, 5:37 PM
What the hell?! What gets in these directors heads thinking that if the main characters have kids the movie will be so much better. The only comic book movie(or manga, whatever you prefer) that is improved with kids is Dragonball but thats already messed up for now, so we'll have to wait for the rights to that to go to another studio. I hope the rights to Spidey revert back to Marvel, then they could possibly use the Civil War storyline in the future.
Makiveli21 - 11/16/2009, 5:38 PM
inspace- they had a child but it didnt die, it was switched at birth with a dead baby by norman osbourne
Makiveli21 - 11/16/2009, 5:39 PM
corndog- MJ had a baby during the clone saga
JoshWilding - 11/16/2009, 5:42 PM
WTF!?! Peter and MJ had a daughter who died and if they give her a child with someone else or Pete and MJ a kid it will go so far from the comic books it'll be completely unreal!

I also wouldnt get your hopes up for it being Carnage flashback because Raimi didnt like or want to include Venom in Spider-Man 3 so I cant see him using Carnage in the next movie.


imnotwearinghockeypants - 11/16/2009, 5:43 PM
Doc Conners flashback kid. When he was molested by his Gila Monster uncle.
StephenStrange - 11/16/2009, 5:44 PM
This article, and the following comments are so surreal that I feel as though I have taken LSD.
Christuffer - 11/16/2009, 5:48 PM
Thats not really news news. Sounds like gettin' ahead of yourself a little. Have you ever scanned the credits of some movies? Some credited actors are labeled random things like that (i.e. Man With Dog, Screaming Woman). Could just be an extra
GUNSMITH - 11/16/2009, 5:59 PM
CorndogBurglar - 11/16/2009, 6:03 PM
everyone's jumping to conclusions. it doesn't say anything about this being pete or MJ's kid.
(i didn't know MJ had a kid that died though, thats news to me)

@ imnotwearinghockeypants

CorndogBurglar - 11/16/2009, 6:03 PM
@ darth

i'll have some too!
THEHAWK - 11/16/2009, 6:05 PM
Crap when i saw this on main I thought that this ment we would get to see Spidergirl in the film. then I reread it
selinakyle - 11/16/2009, 6:12 PM
bloody hell! Like the last one wasn't weird enough, you gotta add a kid into the mix?
legder20 - 11/16/2009, 6:16 PM
It could work, but I think we should have black cat and then at the end of the movie they break up because she only loves spiderman. Then I think she hooks up with morbous and spidey hooks up with gwen stacy and they bring back the green gobblin and he kills her. Then in the 6th and finall movie they bring marry jane back, they get married and live a happy life together.
TimJude72 - 11/16/2009, 8:05 PM
Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't Ben Riley have red hair?
PeterParker90 - 11/16/2009, 8:10 PM
how about Harry's son in the comics with Liz Allen? They are talking about bringing Goblin back. who knows we will just have to wait for more information on what is going on with the movie.
