When Spider-Man: Freshman Year was first announced during Disney+ Day, it was marketed as canon for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, this latest list of updates seems to confirm that the upcoming web-slinging series won’t be connecting to the bigger MCU. Instead, it is expected to be part of the Multiverse.
The absence of Ned from Jacob Batalon and MJ Zendaya also added to the confusion, further confirming that New Year’s was completely unrelated to MCU hero Tom Holland. The possible question of whether or not it is canon will be discussed in the months leading up to the show’s premiere in 2024.
