RUMOR: How Sony Wants ‘Spider-Man’ Stars To Return In Key Roles

A live-action Spider-Verse!

Spider-Man No Way Home Tobey Maguire Andrew Garfield

Are Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire back for good? Sony Pictures seems to have big plans for the two Spider-Man actors.

Spider-Man: No Way Home was one of the biggest cinematic events in history, bringing back Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield to fight alongside Tom Holland in a Marvel smackdown of the century. This has left many fans wondering if either actor would return as Spider-Man again given the right circumstances.

It seems Sony has plans of its own. According to a new rumor by Hollywood insider DanielRPK, the studio wants both Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire to return for their own Marvel universe. There’s no word on if this would mean both actors would continue their Spider-Man franchises, or if they’d simply appear as cameos in future projects.

The Future Of Spider-Man Variants At Marvel

It seems Sony may have to end up sharing these actors with Marvel Studios. While there’s no word on Andrew Garfield making his return to the MCU, a recent rumor indicates that Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man is reportedly being eyed to take a leading role in Avengers: Secret Wars. This could be a good thing for Sony, cementing Maguire as the definitive Spider-Man in the studio’s Marvel universe.

Fans have rightfully pointed out that, if this rumor is true, both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield now hold all the cards in finishing the story of their Spider-Man incarnations the way they want to. Sony is desperate for a hit after their recent Marvel flops, meaning they can’t be picky with how the heroes return. Let’s just hope the contract doesn’t force one of them into Kraven the Hunter!
