Around the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Joe Manganiello who played Flash Thompson in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man franchise, was asked if he was also returning to the movie alongside Alfred Molina and Jamie Foxx, the only stars who had been confirmed to appear in the movie or be appearing as a new character.

“It depends on what it consists of,” he mentioned, “I really want it to be the right role and I think sometimes you have to hold out for that right one. So, a little cameo as Flash Thompson, I’d rather do something more substantive —[play] someone who can stick around for a while.” 

The actor explained that he would only be returning if his character was there to stay for a while rather than doing a cameo as an older character only to never return again. He added that he would like to do something much more meaningful compared to a short appearance in a movie full of big reveals.
