Another Tobey Maguire Spider-Man Movie Is Possible, Says Director Sam Raimi

Director of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Sam Raimi feels that one more Spider-Man movie starring Tobey Maguire is on the cards.

While appearing in an interview with Fandango recently, Raimi, who helmed Sony’s original Spider-Man trilogy starring Maguire, was asked about Tobey’s return in the recently released Spider-Man: No Way Home and if there is any possibility of them teaming back up for another film. Sam Raimi had replied that, after he has worked on Multiverse of Madness, he has come to terms that “anything is possible […] in the Marvel universe, any team-ups. I love Tobey. I love Kirsten Dunst. I think all things are possible.”

However, Raimi also revealed that he doesn’t “really have a story or a plan,” and the fact that he’s not really sure “if Marvel would be interested in that right now.” Raimi concluded by saying that even though he didn’t make one more Spider-Man movie, he’d still like to work alongside Tobey Maguire again at a point.

No Way Home Brought Back Tobey’s Spider-Man

In Spider-Man: No Way Home, Spider-Man (played by Tom Holland) gets some help from Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to hide his secret identity from the world after it gets exposed by Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) in Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019). However, this spell by Doctor Strange goes wrong, pulling up the characters from various Spider-Man franchises, including Tobey Maguire’s version of Peter Parker.

Maguire and Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy began with a Spider-Man movie in 2002. The film went on to garner massive success for Sony, which resulted in a sequel, Spider-Man 2, which made its way into the theaters in 2004. Both these movies are often seen as one of the best superhero movies to be ever made, even becoming equally successful at the global box office. However, Spider-Man 3, made its way in 2007 and although it proved to be a commercial success, the film was not very well-received by the critics. After that film, Sony decided to reboot the franchise, choosing Andrew Garfield as the new Peter Parker/Spider-Man.

That reboot with Garfield resulted in the scrapping of a potential fourth Spider-Man movie starring Maguire. Over the past few years, many people have confirmed that Spider-Man 4 would have seen Adrian Toomes/Vulture, with John Malkovich playing the villain. Anne Hathaway was also rumored to appear as Felicia Hardy/Black Cat in the film. After the release of No Way Home, there have been various calls for Sony to allow Maguire and Raimi to make a fourth Spider-Man movie.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is directed by Sam Raimi, with a script from Michael Waldron. The film will open on May 6.
