Actor Tobey Maguire has said he would be interested in coming back to play Spider-Man again in a future project, though whether or not it happens remains to be seen.
In an interview on Marvel’s website, Maguire was asked how he felt about getting asked to come back as Spider-Man in 2021’s Spider-Man: No Way Home, and he provided an unprompted answer about wanting to come back.
“I love these films and I love all of the different series,” he said (via ScreenRant). “If these guys called me and said, ‘Would you show up tonight to hang out and goof around?’ or ‘Would you show up to do this movie or read a scene or do a Spider-Man thing?,’ it would be a ‘Yes!’ Because why wouldn’t I want to do that?”
Maguire said when Marvel called him about coming back to play Spider-Man alongside two other Spider-Men, Tom Holland and Andrew Garfield, he felt some nerves.
“‘What will this look like and what will the experience be?'” he said he remembers wondering. “But to get to show up with beautiful, talented, creative people and play together? It’s just like, ‘Yes!’ It’s fun and exciting.”
Maguire also spoke about what it was like putting the Spider-Man suit on again after so many years, saying it didn’t take long for him to “feel pretty at home” wearing the outfit.
Spider-Man: No Way Home featured a multiverse storyline that allowed for Maguire and Garfield to reprise their Spider-Man characters alongside the current Spider-Man, played by Holland. The movie even featured a scene referencing the Spider-Man pointing meme.
No future Spider-Man movies have been announced, and Holland himself has said he wants to take a break from acting to focus on his family. Holland also said he wants to see a woman play the character. “We’ve had three Spider-Mans in a row; we’ve all been the same. It’d be nice to see something different,” he said.
