During the production of Marvel’s third Spider-Man movie a number of reports have said former Spider-Man actors Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will be joining the project. The arrival of these two actors as different versions of Peter Parker would begin a live-action edition of 2018’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.  

News of these actors’ involvement was followed by further reports that Jamie Foxx, Willem Dafoe and Alfred Molina would be appearing in the film as Spider-Man villains Electro, Green Goblin and Doctor Octopus respectively.

MJ (Zendaya) and Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst) are confirmed to be making their return while both Michael Keaton and Emma Stone are in talks to come back to play Vulture and Gwen Stacy respectively, although neither have fully signed up yet.

The combining of these three cinematic universes would solidify the previous film series as canon within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

However, reports that Maguire and Garfield, who between them appeared in five Spider-Man movies, will return have now been quashed by current Peter Parker actor Holland.

The 24-year-old actor recently broke his silence about the upcoming film, saying: “No, no, they will not be appearing in this film.

“Unless they have hidden the most massive piece of information from me, which I think is too big of a secret for them to keep from me.

“But as of yet, no. It’ll be a continuation of the Spider-Man movies that we’ve been making.”

Despite his firm denial of the news, Holland did confess he wasn’t entirely sure what would happen in the film.

Holland said: “I honestly have no idea what this film is about and I’m eight weeks into shooting it.

“They do it all the time. In [Endgame], Robert Downey Jr’s funeral scene, for the longest time I was under the impression that it was a wedding.”

He added: “I’m 100 percent sure that they’re still tricking me.”

Although the actor has denied Garfield and Maguire’s return, Electro star Foxx previously celebrated his appearance in the film.

In a now deleted Instagram post Foxx revealed some concept art of three Spider-Men facing off against his version of Electro.

He captioned the image: “Tell Spidey let’s run it back! Super excited to [be] part of the new Marvel Spider-Man new instalment.

“Can’t wait for y’all to check the new one. And I won’t be blue in this one!! But a thousand percent bad**s!!!”

Jamie last appeared as Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Although the film acted as an origin story for the Sinister Six, Sony later scrapped the project entirely.

Further speculation on returning Spider-Man actors began when the upcoming Doctor Strange movie was announced.

Benedict Cumberbatch’s next film as the sorcerer supreme is titled Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness.

Maguire is said to be jumping between multiverses in the film alongside his on-screen foe Doc Ock.

The Spider-Man films are available on Amazon Prime Video.
