For a long time, there have been rumors that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will be appearing in Spider-Man: No Way Home. After all, Alfred Molina and Jamie Foxx are confirmed to reprise their respective Spider-Man villain roles so why not the former Spider-Men as well? Now, someone who just worked with Maguire shared a piece of information that may fuel up the speculation even further.
In his Instagram post, actor Yakov Kolantarov posted a photo on Instagram of him working with Brad Pitt in the Damien Chazelle film Babylon, in which Maguire also co-stars and serves as an executive producer. One of the users commented and asked if the actor also met Maguire and asked him if he's in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Kolantarov replied, "Yeah he told me he will be in. He told me not to tell anyone. Hopefully, I don't get trouble for telling you because I'm bad at keeping secrets."
The user replied back, "You are lying..." And then it was followed up by, "Why would you tell this publicly?" The actor responded again, "I don't lie. It's hard for me to lie." The user replied again by saying that they will share it on Twitter. The actor just casually responded with, "You will believe me when it comes out," and gave permission to share the information on Twitter.
As of the writing of this article, the post is still up and the comments are still visible to the public. There's a chance that the actor will delete the post, turn off the comments, or perhaps set his account on private. Interestingly, in the actor's recent post, he shared a video of himself doing a Spider-Verse filter, probably indicating that he is aware that his comment has been making rounds online.
Even though the actor claimed that he heard the information from Maguire himself, we should still take this with a grain of salt. There's a chance that he might not be telling the truth and he was just messing with the user that he is interacting with. But then his photo with Pitt confirms that he worked on Babylon so there is a reason to believe that he interacted with Maguire. Although he might be in trouble for sharing that information publicly.
It's hard to say at the moment if Kolantarov is telling the truth. We will find out soon enough whether it's on the second trailer or when we watch the film in cinemas this December.
