It’s impossible to avoid mentioning Tobey Maguire whenever someone brings up the original Spider-Man. Maguire is a Hollywood legend and maybe the most admired actor to have ever played the famed wall-crawler. Marvel fans have been clamouring for Tobey Maguire to reprise his role as New York City’s favourite superhero since he donned the tights once again after his appearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Following the release of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and the beginning of Marvel’s fifth phase on February 17, one thing has become crystal clear: the MCU has gone multiversal. They have the authority to change everything, enter any timeline, and bring back any figure. There are no restrictions. Is imagining Maguire’s homecoming really so strange?
Maybe sooner than we think, Tobey Maguire will be back. Maguire highlighted his want to carry on portraying his take on the witty web-head in an interview with Marvel.
“I adore both these movies and the many series. If these men phoned and asked, “Would you come hang out and have fun tonight?” It would be “yes!” if asked, “Would you come up to do this movie, read a scene, or do a Spider-Man thing?” Why then would I not want to do that?
The widely anticipated Secret Wars narrative, when Marvel’s greatest heroes and villains are summoned together on “Battleworld” by an entity known as the Beyonder, would be the most likely setting for a comeback. Once there, these individuals are compelled to engage in combat with one another in an effort to eventually flee.
Forget about the Civil War; the gloves take off in the Secret Wars. Tobey Maguire’s return for such a story arc is unquestionably the right decision, but if additional Spider-Men are introduced, it may lessen Tom Holland’s enduring influence on the MCU as a whole. Is that a can of worms worth opening? Only time will tell if and how frequently Tobey Maguire will return as Spider-Man. One can only sincerely hope that Kang the Conqueror doesn’t create too much problems while getting ready for Quantumania.
