It appears that both former Spider-Man actors Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield have joined the cast of the Tom Holland-led Spider-Man 3.

It sounds like we could possibly be getting our very own live-action Spider-Verse in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield could be about to reprise their roles as past incarnations of Peter Parker/Spider-Man, joining Tom Holland in the Jon Watts-directed Spider-Man 3.

This comes after it was confirmed that Alfred Molina would be reprising his role as Doctor Otto Octavius aka Doctor Octopus from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2. The following day, it was also  speculated that Charlie Cox would be reprising his role as Matt Murdock/Daredevil from Netflix’s Daredevil series.

Are Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield in Spider-Man 3?

According to Collider, Sony and Marvel are attempting to close a deal with Maguire while Garfield is already onboard. The former portrayed the wall-crawler in Raimi’s original Spider-Man trilogy between 2002 and 2007 while Garfield then succeeded him in playing the titular character in Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man series in 2012 and 2014.

Emma Stone will also reportedly make her return as Gwen Stacy from The Amazing Spider-Man saga while Kirsten Dunst is also expected to reprise her role as Mary Jane Watson from Raimi’s trilogy.
