Though Marvel’s Spider-Man has had various changes in the actor who plays ‘Peter Parker’ over the past 18 years, Spider-Man to most 90s and 2k kids instantly reminds them of Tobey Maguire. Yes, the very first shy, nerdy teenager who became Spiderman after being bitten by a radioactive spider on their school field trip. Spider-Man merchandise has been our biggest flex growing up, as it was a Super Hit at the time of release (2002) grossing $403 Million at box office. In 2012 we had British Actor Andrew Garfield playing Spidey, though it wasn’t as well received as its predecessor, it didn’t disappoint.
The recent Spider-Man movies starring Tom Holland, along with his stellar performance in Avengers, has been extensively received well by the fans and as the 3rd part is in progress, fans have already started speculating a lot. The biggest rumour out of that is, both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will return in Spider-Man 3 and a fallacious report says the actors have already signed in. But nothing has been officially confirmed yet although the teaser for the Movie is expected before the year ends. In addition it’s also been rumoured that Jamie Foxx’s Electro from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will also make a special appearance. If this becomes true, it would be a great way to end the year for Spidey fans.
Grace Randolph, American writer often tweets about this rumour claiming to have some insider information. On the 18th October, she tweeted that Tobey is holding out from signing the contract not because he wants more cash but screen time.

I’m hearing Tobey Maguire doesn’t want more 💵💵💵
turns out he wants more SCREEN TIME out of the suit, so he can really act in the film instead of swinging through it!
And one idea is all the Spideys swing into Times Square… 👀🕷#SpiderMan3 #Marvel #MCU pic.twitter.com/LyhwWx0Cdj
If you are a Spidey fan, you’d have watched Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. It was an animated action movie released in 2018, a really good one. Here the protagonist is no longer by Peter Parker’s name, he is Miles Morales, a whole new character with a new background who becomes Spider-Man to save the city. They bring in the concept of different universes, as he meets his alternate versions the movie ends with a battle to save not the universe but the multiverse. Applying a similar concept, having 3 Spider-Mans is possible and won’t cloud the audience with confusion. Different realms, different Spider-Mans, bringing in Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland on the same screen, is going to be a blockbuster for sure. Now as nothing is confirmed, we’ll all have to wait and see.
Quick Movie recommendation: If you have been postponing watching Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse thinking it’s just an animation movie, you have mistaken, run right now and watch it. It is highly entertaining, full of surprises and I recommend it for all age groups. 😉
