Leer en español: El multiverso Spider-Man: la posibilidad de que ocurra con Tobey Maguire

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is being planned for expansion. Recently, we learned, according to what the Depor website highlights, that the third installment of spider man, starring actor Tom Holland, will feature actor Jamie Foxx as Electro.

This is shocking news, as it could give some signs of the possible multiverse. That is, because Foxx is the same actor who played the villain in the second installment of the hero played by Andrew Garfield. Therefore, there is speculation that they are characters that coexist in different realities.

Considering this, we decided to find out what happened to Tobey Maguire, the actor who played Spider-Man in the trilogy directed by Sam Raimi, which raised the popularity of this superhero.

Tobey Maguire and his relationship with Spider-Man

It is clear that, when we talk about Spider-Man, we have different versions of the same character. However, there is one that continues to make fans fall in love: Tobey Maguire. After the trilogy of films by Sam Raimi, there was always speculation about the possibility that the actor, in one way or another, could appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Therefore, there are some indications that could reveal the chance that Tobey Maguire will again return to the role of the superhero. The first was revealed, as highlighted by the Spaghetti Code website, in the Spider-Man: Far From Home movie, the last installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date.

It is basically a post-credits scene in which we see that the character of JJ Jameson, Spider-Man's enemy journalist, appears as JK Simmons. That is, we are talking about the same actor who plays the same character in Tobey Maguire's films, demonstrating the possibility that the arachnid multiverse exists.

Another point that would demonstrate the possibility of generating the multiverse of arachnid men occurs through the signing of director Sam Raimi. In this case, he will direct the movie Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, that is, the sequel to the original of the character played by Benedict Cumberbatch, which will have a horror theme.

According to the specialized media of Tomatazos, the arrival of this director to the Marvel Cinematic Universe would allow the appearance of a cameo by the actor Tobey Maguire, who knew how to play the first Peter Parker that our eyes saw and who was directed by Raimi himself. Given the theme of the film, where it talks about the multiverses, added to the previous winks, it is possible that we see this hero who won our hearts.

This is why, at this point, there are different rumors about the appearance of these character variants. From the CinemasComics website it is said that Spider-Man 3 could include Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire, that is, all existing versions. In Aire de Santa Fe, on the other hand, they warn that Tobey himself would return in the work of Sam Raimi, although it is not ruled out that these appearances can occur in the two installments.

However, few of us know what happened to this charismatic actor who, according to Vanity Fair Magazine, "fell into oblivion." I mean, he had his golden years as a fashion actor, but he hasn't made a movie since 2014. This is a weird thing, considering that Spider-Man is one of the most beloved superheroes in history, and his adaptation is considered the one that best reflects the spirit of the comic book hero, from the opinion of IGN.

At first, the choice of the actor was somewhat questioned, because he looked too childish and even funny in terms of his gestures, traits that distinguish him to this day . However, over time he managed to position himself as a true eminence within the field of Marvel and even superheroes in general, within films that also had an enormous technical quality.

Knowing that one of the most beloved superheroes by the general public failed to dazzle the producers in films that move away from that theme in which he was pigeonholed, his foray into the Marvel Cinematic Universe may not only mean a blow of nostalgia and a box office success, but also his return to stardom.
