Sam Raimi, the director of the original three Spider-Man movies, has said that he thinks another movie starring Tobey Maguire could be “possible”.
Of course, this comes after the 2021 release of Spider-Man: No Way Home. In the MCU giant, all three of the live-action Spider-Men teamed up in a collision of the multiverses. The catastrophic events of the film lead into the new Doctor Strange movie, which is also being directed by Sam Raimi.
Speaking in an interview with Fandango, Raimi discussed whether he thought another Maguire appearance could be on the cards. He replied:
“I’ve come to realise after making Doctor Strange that anything is possible, really anything in the Marvel universe, any team-ups. I love Tobey. I love Kirsten Dunst. I think all things are possible. I don’t really have a story or a plan. I don’t know if Marvel would be interested in that right now. I don’t know what their thoughts are about that. I haven’t really pursued that. But it sounds beautiful. Even if it wasn’t a Spider-Man movie, I’d love to work with Tobey again, in a different role.”
Could Spider-Man 4 with Tobey Maguire happen?
While Raimi doesn’t specify that he could be talking about a Spider-Man 4 movie, it’s promising that he’s willing to work with the actors once again. Raimi famously worked on a script for Spider-Man 4, but scrapped it due to schedule constraints enforced by Sony. As such, the studio pivoted to the Andrew Garfield reboot of the movies.
Fans are eager to see both of the Spider-Man series continue. However, it certainly feels like there’s more to explore in Andrew Garfield’s character than Maguires. We learn in No Way Home that Maguire’s Peter Parker eventually settled down with Mary Jane and lived a happy life. However, it seems that Garfield’s Parker is still dealing with the trauma of losing Gwen Stacey. If we had to choose one Spidey to explore further, it would have to be Andrew Garfield.
Of course, Raimi could simply be hinting at more MCU team-ups and crossovers. If that’s our only means of seeing more Maguire and Garfield, we’ll take it!
