Sam Raimi had earned a lot of "benefit of the doubt" after the first two Spider-Man films, as well.

Then we got Spider-Man 3.
I can’t remember much behind-the-scenes stuff with Spider-man 3, but did Raimi have creative freedom with it?

Personally I feel 3 wasn’t THAT far from being really great. Peter was WAY too “emo” during the black-spidey-suit parts of the movie. And Topher Grace was horrible in his role. Everything else made it a great Spider-Man film, IMO.

I don’t know what to think of Maguire and/or Garfield coming back. It would have to be something super brilliant, but from the base idea sounds kind of desperate. And before you tell me to give Feige the benefit of the doubt, all I can say is there have been plenty of MCU films that did nothing for me.

From what I remember Raimi had all that Venom stuff forced on him which is crazy after the success of the first two movies.

As for these guys coming intothe movie as previous Spider-Men and/or Peter Parkers.
I love it.

Give me all the Spider-Men.

I’m confident that MARVEL and Sony plan on doing a big, Spider-Verse event movie. I’m almost as confident that that movie won’t be Spider-Man 3. Though it is quite possible that they will seed something of it in S3.

That depends on whether the two companies continue to play nice after this deal. Remember, their current contract calls for Holland's third film and one other MCU appearance.

That being said, if that doesn't work out, Sony could easily take Holland into a pocket of the multiverse where Spider-Man is the only superhero and he meets the other iterations of that character. I hope this is not the case. But it does give them an opening for a nicer out if they decide not to continue sharing the character in a way that the cliffhanger ending of Far From Home does not.

I would guess that the whole reason they're going down this road with Spidey is to build in an exit ramp in case things break down between Marvel and Sony again in the future.

I have no doubt that they both want to work together for a long time and have big plans for Spidey in the MCU. And I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised that their plans for future collaborations are already in motion.

You’ll be seeing more evidence of the blending of Sony’s stuff with Marvel (like Michael Keaton in Morbius) as time goes on.

I thought this tweet could indicate some viewers' level of surprise and/or excitement.


I don't mind the idea of multiple Spider-men, given the Multiverse idea. Using Maguire and Garfield may feel a bit too gimmicky, especially if they're playing the same characters as in their series. Playing a different version would work better.

I must say, though, when Elfman's music starts in the tweeted video, thinking about the scene as described...it could be a cheer-worthy scene if kept secret...

Sony has apparently said something rather vague regarding Maguire and Garfield, to the effect that their participation hasn't been confirmed. Which suggests that they're nailing down the contracts.

Given that there are also rumors that Benedict Cumberbatch will be appearing in the new Spider-Man film, there seems to be speculation floating around that the Maguire & Garfield appearances (if those rumors turn out to be true), along with Jamie Foxx coming back as Electro, and J.K. Simmons reprising JJJ at the end of Far from Home (and presumably being in the next one) are suggesting that the "Multiverse" is being introduced -- or teased, since we don't know the extent of these appearances -- ahead of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which at the moment is pencilled in for release just a few months after SM3 (2021 12 17 for SM3; 2022 03 25 for DSitMoM).

Of course, the Multiverse was teased in Far from Home, but that turned out to be a hoax.
