Tobey Maguire’s unexpected appearance with Andrew Garfield in Spider-Man: No Way Home was a delightful surprise for fans indeed. And of course, it left fans’ thoughts running amok as to whether or not they could get another chance to see Maguire in the Spidey suit. In a recent interview, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness director Sam Raimi opened up about the possibility of another Spider-Man film, headlined by Maguire.
In conversation with Fandango, Raimi was questioned on whether he had plans for directing a fourth Spider-Man film, starring Maguire. The filmmaker replied that while he is open to the possibility, there aren’t any solid plans for the same at the moment. Talking about how much he ‘loved’ Maguire and Kirsten Dunst (who played Mary Jane Watson in the original live-action trilogy), he said that in the Marvel Universe, ‘anything is possible’.
The filmmaker went on to say that he did not have any particular story or plan for such a movie, and he wasn’t sure whether Marvel would be interested in the idea or not. “I don't know what their thoughts are about that. I haven't really pursued that. But it sounds beautiful,” he said. Raimi also added that he would ‘love’ to work with Maguire in a future project, which does not necessarily have to be a Spider-Man film.
Raimi’s next release is Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, a sequel to 2016’s Doctor Strange. Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Elizabeth Olsen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Benedict Wong, Xochitl Gomez, Michael Stuhlbarg and Rachel McAdams, the upcoming film will be released in theatres on May 6, 2022.
