Following the success of Sony's Oscar-winning animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, there seems to be more interest in seeing multiple Spider-Men mixing it up on the big-screen at the same time. With Spider-Man: Far From Home seemingly introducing the multiverse, that intrigue has only increased, and current Spider-Man Tom Holland sounds ready to join forces with former Spider-Men Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.
"I'd love to make a movie with those guys. That'd be so cool," Holland replied when asked by Jake Hamilton if he'd like to star in a multiversal film alongside Maguire and Garfield. "No, it'd be amazing. It would be really, really cool. And it's something that the fans really want. So, whether Marvel and Sony decide to do that, it's up to them. It's not up to me. I can't walk in and be like, 'Kevin [Feige], this is what we're doing on the next one.' But it would be really awesome, yeah."
While the first person to play Spider-Man in a live-action film was technically Nicholas Hammond in the '70s, Tobey Maguire became synonymous with the character when he made his debut as Peter Parker in 2002 film Spider-Man. He reprised his role for the film's two sequels, released in 2004 and 2007, respectively.
Sony rebooted Spidey in 2012 with The Amazing Spider-Man, which saw Andrew Garfield take up the mantle of Peter Parker. He again suited up as the character for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which hit theaters in 2014.
Garfield's tenure in the role was cut short, as Marvel Studios made a deal with Sony to bring the character to the MCU. Holland made his debut in 2016's Captain America: Civil War and has since reprised the role in Spider-Man: Homecoming, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. Far From Home will be his fifth outing as the iconic character.
Opening July 2, director Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Far From Home stars Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, JB Smoove, Jacob Batalon and Martin Starr, with Marisa Tomei and Jake Gyllenhaal.
