Earlier this week we heard some rumors that Spider-Man 3 will include Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield reprising their role of Peter Parker/Spider-Man. This news has got a lot of Marvel fan’s attention about what this could mean for the kind of story that the movie will be telling.
With the inclusion of Jamie Foxx who will be playing as Electro and Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange confirmed to be a part of the story, there’s a lot of rumors and speculation that Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios are looking to blow open The Spider-Verse in the third movie of the franchise.
Sony has since acknowledged the rumor involving Maguire and Garfield. ET Canada received word from Sony that, “Those rumored castings are not confirmed.”
I just want to note that the studio doesn’t deny the rumor. They just say the rumor hasn’t been verified. Maybe the talks between the actors are still ongoing and they are not sure if it can happen for now. If the rumor is true, I’m sure that it’s a piece of information that the studio doesn’t want to be approved the news yet because they simply aren’t ready to make an official announcement.
All I know is for now, with how we’ve seen things play out with these comic books films, anything can happen. We’ll just have to wait and see how this entire thing with Maguire and Garfield.
