Another day, another report on the potential involvement of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Spider-Man 3. Over the last couple of months, we’ve heard on multiple occasions that the duo are definitely signed on and could even be sticking around for much longer than one movie, but so far, neither Marvel Studios or Sony have revealed any official details.
A video was making the rounds yesterday, though, which seemingly confirmed that the web-slinging sequel is going to feature all three live-action Spider-Men, and suspicions were raised further when it was almost instantly pulled, presumably for the person who leaked it to get a stern warning and a slap on the wrist.
Not only that, but the first footage from Spider-Man 3 is expected to be unveiled at some point this month, which you imagine would be the ideal time to finally confirm the news that everyone’s been waiting for. But until then, the latest addition to the rumor mill comes from tipster Mikey Sutton, who admittedly has a better track record than most in regards to MCU scoops. That being said, it should still be taken with a pinch of salt.
According to the insider, though, Garfield and Maguire have both definitely signed on the dotted line and the news will be made public in the very near future, which might not be a coincidence with our first look at the movie arriving imminently. In an interesting wrinkle, Sutton also notes that the former Spideys will reportedly try and help to clear the name of Tom Holland’s Peter Parker by proving that he’s not Spider-Man, which would be a smart way of quickly negating Far From Home‘s cliffhanger and leaving the upcoming threequel free to focus on multiversal shenanigans.
