Diehard fans of Marvel's one and only Spider-Man seemingly had their dreams shattered when Sony dismissed ongoing rumors that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield were set to reprise their roles as Peter Parker in the MCU's third Spidey flick. To make matters worse, we may have new evidence that could finally debunk Garfield's involvement in the film, as much of a bummer as that sounds.
The British actor is actually in New York filming a new movie. One would assume that it's the untitled Spider-Man 3 given the fact that the Marvel Studios and Sony co-production is also filming in the said state. Well, I hate to break it to you though as Garfield is actually filming a different project. The 37-year-old actor resumed production for the Lin-Manuel Miranda-directed Tick, Tick... Boom!, a Netflix adaptation of the iconic musical of the same name. Check out the set photos here.
As much as I'd like to think that Garfield can pull double duty, obviously, it wouldn't be possible for him to film two movies at the same time so that could already be a dead giveaway that the rumors of him appearing in the MCU were indeed false all along. But considering Spider-Man 3 is scheduled to film until March next year, anything can still happen but yeah, it's all just wishful thinking at this point.
I think I speak for a lot of webheads out there when I say that the potential inclusion of Maguire and Garfield in the project could spell great things for the MCU. Let's face it, if they pull the trigger, Spider-Man 3 has the makings of becoming the biggest crossover event in superhero film history and as I've said before, it would be a missed opportunity if it doesn't happen. Not gonna lie though, I remain hopeful.
Spider-Man 3 is slated for release in 2021.
