Say it ain’t so! There’s a rumor going around that a Spidey baby could possibly make an appearance in Spider-Man 4. According to a casting call recently sent out, word on the street is that Sam Raimi and company are making room for a junior member of the Marvel franchise. Could the mysterious “Toddler Boy” be in the future of Peter Parker and Mary Jane?
Spoiler TV got a hold of a casting call for a toddler with the following description.
Spider-Man 4 – Official Casting Call for Baby Boy with Red Hair
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
Ok, let’s talk about this shall we? Weeks ago Raimi announced that he was going back to the basics with Spider-Man, which means no more over the top storylines, and only one good villain as opposed to several mediocre ones. Going off the description of the kid in question, he could easily be the spawn of Mary Jane and Peter, but who would want that? Remember what happened when they gave Superman a child in Superman Returns?
There’s also word that he might be a new villain, the loudest rumblings suggests he could be a young Carnage aka Cletus Kasady. Unfortunately, that’s a big stretch considering his similarities to Venom. If Raimi is trying to salvage this franchise, this is not the way to do it. For goodness sakes man, stay away from the extra characters and focus on righting the ones you’ve wronged.
Do you think there will be a Spidey Baby in Spider-Man 4?
