Do Maguire & Garfield Have Much Larger Roles in Spider-Man 3?


The hottest rumor, and worst kept secret in Hollywood right now is that Tom Holland, Tobey Maguire, and Andrew Garfield will team up as various Spider-Men. During the red carpet premiere of Black Widow last month, Marvel CEO Kevin Feige addressed the issue. Despite the fact that we know what Marvel and Sony have planned for No Way Home, the full picture remains blurry. Although unverified leaks may have included big spoilers for No Way Home, we still have no idea what will actually happen in the film.



According to BGR:

Rumors said months ago that Alfred Molina would reprise his Doc Ock role from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy, and the actor confirmed it all in an interview with Variety a few weeks ago.

“When we were shooting it, we were all under orders not to talk about it because it was supposed to be some great big secret,” he said at the time. “But, you know, it’s all over the internet. I actually described myself as the worst kept secret in Hollywood!”

Molina also explained that his biggest question about his character concerns the Dock Ock’s death that we saw in Spider-Man 2 (2004). No Way Home director Jon Watts told him that the new film would pick up Doc Ock’s story from the moment in the river at the end of Raimi’s film. “In this universe, no one really dies,” Watts told Molina.

This is the kind of information that practically confirms the most significant Spider-Man 3 spoilers. The film will be a multiverse adventure that will deliver a massive confrontation. Villains from other realities will face three Spider-Man versions. Molina did not say that Tom Holland, Tobey Maguire, and Andrew Garfield are in the film. But that was the implication.



Daniel Richtman is a known Marvel insider. Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will reprise their roles as the web-slingers from Sony’s previous Spider-Man films, but is news that has been circulating for over a year. The big takeaway is that the two actors will star in the film as co-leads. Take it with a grain of salt, though, because nothing has been confirmed, but Richtman, on the other hand, has a solid track record in this area.


Meanwhile, Spider-Man fans have been expecting a teaser trailer for weeks. And now with less than six months before the December 17th scheduled debut of Spider-Man: No Way Home, it appears they’ll have to wait a bit longer. Due to the massive amount of MCU content currently being released through film and Disney Plus, Marvel appears to be adopting a new marketing strategy.



Asad Ayaz, the marketing head of Disney Studios, spoke with THR about the new plan. They appear to be attempting to spread things out and provide each film/TV program with its own marketing push. Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil is another intriguing addition to the picture. After being accused of Mysterio’s murder in the post-credits sequence in Spider-Man: Far From Home, he’ll be assisting Peter Parker with legal matters.


Any guesses as to how this whole thing ends up?
