After the confirmation of Jamie Foxx’s Electro and Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange in the untitled sequel to 2019’s Spider-Man Far From Home, rumours of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield reprising their roles as Spider-Man have gone rampant and viral online.
So much so that people are sharing made-up fan art and spreading unfounded rumours of both actors seemingly having confirmed to return in Spider-Man 3. We’re sorry to ultimately disappoint you, folks, but it looks like they’ll remain speculations for now.
In an official statement to ET Canada, a Sony Pictures representative said:
“Those rumoured castings are not confirmed.”
Yeah, Sony Pictures didn’t exactly directly deny the rumours, but they’ll remain unconfirmed as of now. Perhaps there is some truth to the rumours; maybe both actors are still in talks with the company, or they want it to be a genuine surprise. Anything is possible, but right now the answer is:
No, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will not be reprising their iconic roles as Peter Parker AKA Spider-Man in Spider-Man 3.
We’ll have to wait until Sony Pictures eventually announces something, or not. Simply spreading these rumours on the Internet like wildfire won’t make them come true.
