If Tom Holland really isn’t too pleased about Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire potentially returning to the franchise he’s been headlining, he’s about to receive even more unwelcome news. The 24-year-old clearly thinks that three Spider-Men is a crowd, but that number pales in comparison to the actual amount that could appear in the upcoming film.
According to our sources – the same ones who told us a She-Hulk show is coming to Disney Plus and Ryan Reynolds had a secret role in Hobbs & Shaw, both of which were correct – Spider-Man 3 will reportedly feature five different versions of the titular web-slinger if Maguire and Garfield sign on the dotted line, and it seems like they definitely will at this stage.
From what we understand, the trio of aforementioned actors might be joined by another yet-to-be-named performer who’ll portray Miles Morales. We’d heard rumors that the beloved character could join the MCU as soon as the next installment, and now it sounds like it’s probably going to happen. And as for the other one, that’d be Spider-Man 2099, who’s also set to appear in the movie, we’re told.

So to recap, that’s Tom Holland, Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire’s versions of the web-slinger, along with brief cameos from Miles and Spider-Man 2099, making for a total of 5 Spider-Men in the film. It’s a lot, to be sure, but if handled correctly, it could prove to be pretty exciting for fans.
Tell us, though, are you eager to see all these different versions of the iconic webhead on screen together, or do you think that things might get a bit too crowded and overstuffed, even if Miles and the 2099 iteration will likely just have cameos setting them up for the future? As always, let us know down below and stay tuned for more, as Spider-Man 3 is now in production and set to swing into theaters on December 17th, 2021.
