It's Happening! Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, Kirsten Dunst, Emma Stone, and Alfred Molina Join 'Spider-Man 3'

For the last couple of months the internet has been repent with rumors that we may be getting a live action Spider-Verse movie at some point from Sony. Little announcements here and there this year have done nothing but fuel that fire, specifically the announcement Sam Raimi (Original Spider-Man trilogy) would direct Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, and that Strange himself would be in the next Spider-Man movie. But then came the big yet confusing news that Jamie Foxx would be returning as Electro in Tom Holland's Spider-Man 3, reprising the role he last played in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in 2014. Now the inevitable news we were all waiting for is apparently here, with so many other names being either confirmed or rumored to appear in the film.

The first news that broke seems the most official, with major trades such as Variety and THR confirming Alfred Molina would returning as Doctor Octopus in Spider-Man 3. The news not only confirms the movie will somehow crossover into the world of the Raimi movies, but also probably means Foxx's Electro is in fact the same one from Amazing Spider-Man 2. Some thought Foxx might just be playing a new MCU version of the character, but it seems much too specific for Marvel to bring back these specific actors from their two past versions of Spider-Man.
Then later that same day came the report we were all waiting for from Collider's Jeff Sneider, who confirmed that Kirsten Dunst and Andrew Garfield have already signed on for the movie. He also say Tobey Maguire is currently still in talks, as is Emma Stone "pregnancy permitting". The news sort of all came at once as a huge shock, even if it what fans have been speculating about, it still just seemed like a pipe dream. But now we know it definitely isn't, and if all the deals go through we'll be seeing all three Spider-Men on screen together.
Of course no one at Marvel has confirmed anything, but there have been some signs pointing to it here and there. Tobey Maguire was reportedly sighted attending a costume fitting for the movie in LA, while Zendaya was grilled about the return of the previous two Peter Parkers in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel last week. Rumors have suggested the appearances will only be cameos and that Spider-Man 3 won't be the full on Spider-Verse movie Sony is clearly planning. This also sets the stage for a Sinister Six led by Molina's Doc Ock and assembling villains across the different films most likely including Vulture, Morbius, Venom, Scorpion, and Foxx's Electro. 

There was also some rumors that stated Charlie Cox will be reprising his role of Matt Murdock aka Daredevil from the now canceled Netflix series. This would be huge news as the Netflix shows and the characters in them appeared to have no future in the MCU given rights issues, leading many to believe he'd probably be recast. There's been fans campaigns all of the internet specifically asking for Marvel to somehow keep Cox version of Daredevil, along with Vincent D'Onofrio's Wilson Fisk in the MCU. We might expect Matt Murdock to be the lawyer who defends Peter Parker following being framed by Mysterio and having his identity revealed in Far From Home

So with all this news to take in how do you feel about everyone returning? Who are you most excited to see back? Are there any other faces you want to see from the old movies? Let us know below!
