Tobey Maguire is set to return as Spider-Man in the fourth installment of the popular Marvel franchise. After a decade away from the role, Maguire is set to reprise his iconic role as the web-slinging superhero.
The news was first reported by Variety, who said that Maguire will be joining the cast of the upcoming Spider-Man 4 movie. The film is set to be directed by Jon Watts, who helmed the previous two Spider-Man films.
Maguire first played the role of Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the 2002 film, which was followed by two sequels in 2004 and 2007. After the third installment, Maguire stepped away from the role and was replaced by Andrew Garfield in the 2012 reboot.
The fourth installment of the franchise is expected to be a continuation of the original trilogy, with Maguire reprising his role as the titular hero. It is unclear if Garfield will also be returning for the fourth installment, but it is likely that he will not be involved.
The fourth installment of the Spider-Man franchise is expected to be released in 2021. It is unclear what the plot of the film will be, but it is likely to involve some of the classic villains from the original trilogy.
Maguire’s return to the role of Spider-Man is sure to be welcomed by fans of the franchise. After a decade away from the role, it will be interesting to see how Maguire has changed as an actor and how he will bring a new energy to the role.
It is sure to be an exciting time for fans of the franchise, as they eagerly await the return of Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man.
The ever-popular superhero Spider-Man is about to make an exciting comeback. Out of the six people who have so far played the web-slinging character in live-action films, it has just been announced that Toby Maguire will return in the role for a fourth film.
Maguire first portrayed the superhero Peter Parker and his alter-ego in 2002 for Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man. That movie was a massive financial success, inspiring two more sequels, and gaining Maguire a cult following.
The film is said to be set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, alongside the other Marvel films, such as The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy. This may have caused some confusion among fans about how Maguire’s incarnation can fit in the overall franchise, since Tom Holland is currently the one playing Spider-Man.
However, this latest installment of the trilogy won’t be a reboot of the original trilogy. Instead, it will aim to tie-in the original trilogy and serve as a bridge between Maguire’s story and Holland’s. This is backed up by one of the producers saying that the movie will “reflect on the long history” of the character.
Sony Pictures, which owns the film rights to Spider-Man, had this to say about the casting decision; “We have great respect for Toby’s work in the original trilogy, so bringing him back to play the iconic role of Peter Parker is something everyone is excited about.”
The release date of the movie is yet to be announced, although we know it will be in the near future. Hopefully, Sony will reveal a date soon, along with further details of the film. Until then, fans are left wondering what the plot will be, or which other characters may be involved.
No matter what, fans of Spider-Man can rejoice that the beloved character is back and with the original actor. We can’t wait to see what the next chapter brings and how Maguire will fit in alongside other Marvel films.
