Could Tobey Maguire make another trip to New York City?
There is a possibility that Maguire, 48, teams up with director Sam Raimi for a direct sequel to the duo’s Spider-Man trilogy from the 2000s, according to Thomas Haden Church, who played the antagonist Sandman in 2007’s Spider-Man 3 and reprised the role in 2021’s Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Haden Church, 63, responded to the outlet’s query by saying, “Well, back with Tobey, with Tobey, because that’s who I started out with,” when asked which of the three live-action Spider-Men he would like his character to face if he ever made an appearance in a future production.
He said, “I’ve heard rumours that Sam Raimi was going to do another one with Tobey. There’s always been kind of that.” I would probably campaign to make at least a cameo if that happens.
When PEOPLE asked for comment on Tuesday, representatives for Maguire, Raimi, and Sony Pictures, which creates and releases the Spider-Man films, did not immediately answer.
In the film No Way Home, which starred Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker, the character’s prior live-action actors collaborated with Tom Holland’s Spidey from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In the meantime, Sony’s animated Spider-Verse films have created a multiverse that might serve as the foundation for other Spider-Man projects in the future.
Maguire recently indicated a desire to play the part once more as well. In January, he told Marvel.com, “I love these films and I love all of the different series.” The answer would be “yes” if these men had called and asked, “Would you show up tonight to hang out and have fun? “, “Would you show up to do this movie, read a scene, or do a Spider-Man thing? “
“Because why wouldn’t I want to do that?” he joked.
When director Raimi abandoned the project that would have become Spider-Man 4 and Sony chose to reboot the brand, plans to continue the original live-action Spider-Man films starring Maguire were put on hold. This allowed actor Andrew Garfield, 39, to step into the role. Raimi later made a comeback to the superhero genre when he helmed Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness in 2022.
