Andrew Garfield And Tobey Maguire 'Returning' For New Spider-Man Movie
It's recently been reported that Alfred Molina will be sticking back on his mechanical tentacles to play Doctor Octopus once again, but bringing back two other Peter Parkers?
That's a bold move.
It would seem that the current incumbent of the red and blue suit, Tom Holland, will be heading towards the multi-verse in this latest one, which might go some way to explaining how he's going to link with his predecessors to the role.
Oh, and that would make it easier for Jamie Foxx to reprise his role as Electro, as has also been reported.
Now, Tobey Maguire's appearance will apparently hinge on the brokering of yet another agreement between Sony and Marvel, but that can definitely be done.
They've thrashed out tougher deals in the past, after all.
As well as potentially bringing back Maguire and Garfield, it's also rumoured that Emma Stone will reprise her role as Gwen Stacy, and Kirsten Dunst will play Mary Jane Watson again.

We already know that the new Spider-Man will see returns for Zendaya, Tony Revolori, Marisa Tomei, and Jacob Batalon. Jon Watts is back in the directorial role, too.
This time out, they'll have Benedict Cumberbatch playing Doctor Strange as well.
Holland himself has described the plot of the film as 'absolutely insane', so we'll have to take him at his word and assume that means some sort of multi-verse flipping is going to occur.
To be fair, the idea of a dude hanging about using webs cast out of his wrists and fighting villains with eight mechanical arms would be weird enough to the uninitiated.
The last movie in the franchise, Spider-Man: Far From Home, became the highest grossing Spider-Man film of all time when it was released in 2019 - remember going to the cinema? - so there will no doubt be an appetite for the new one upon its release in cinemas.
Particularly if there are a load of returning stars from the previous incarnations of the web-slinging superhero.
According to internet tipsters, the movie commenced shooting in New York in October, and the film is currently slated for release on 17 December 2021.
If everything goes to plan and the world is back to something resembling normality by that point, we might get the chance to enjoy the new film in an actual theatre.
