It’s claimed that Tobey Maguire will be back as Spider-Man, again paired with director Sam Raimi.
According to the Lords of the Long Box YouTube channel, Tobey Maguire will be back as Spider-Man in a live-action Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse movie from Sony.
It’s said that the live-action Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse movie will give Tobey Maguire a farewell similar to the farewell Robert Downey Jr. received in The Avengers: Endgame.
The flick “will also be a chance for director Sam Raimi to say good-bye to the beloved version of his character.”
It’s also said the flick will lead to the introduction of the live-action version of the Miles Morales Spider-Man.
Worth a mention is that Sony owns the film rights to Spider-Man, so they can do whatever they want with the character on film, but the rumor makes it sound as if Marvel Studios will be involved.
Tobey Maguire rumored for live-action Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse film
Sam Raimi is already back with Marvel as Raimi is directing Doctor Strange 2, so maybe Raimi will stick around and direct a second Multiverse movie with a live-action Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse film.
The Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse animated movie was really popular and a big success, with the sequel due out Oct. 7, 2022.
Raimi directed Tobey Maguire in the three Spider-Man movies in the early 2000s that brought in over $2.5 billion.
I spoke with Sam Raimi a few years ago where he talked about Evil Dead with mention of Spidey. Cool dude.
