Tobey Maguire isn’t in the limelight much nowadays – aside from a voice role in The Boss Baby, his last major Hollywood role was 2013’s The Great Gatsby – but all eyes are on the 45-year-old actor again lately following widespread reports and rumors that he’s set to reprise his role as Peter Parker for Marvel/Sony’s Spider-Man 3. We’re still waiting on an official confirmation of this, but some new snaps of the actor could add to the evidence.
JustJared.com acquired some photos taken of Maguire in North Hollywood this Wednesday. The photos themselves are not what’s important – they capture the star in a parking lot in casual gear – but the context of them raises eyebrows. Maguire was pictured going for a costume fitting at Wardrobe Workroom. This could be for another project, who knows, but it’s got folks thinking that he might’ve been there for a Spider-Man suit fitting.

MORE FROM THE WEB
Spider-Man 3 is in production now and exciting new casting announcements are dropping all the time. On top of Jamie Foxx coming back as Electro and Benedict Cumberbatch stopping by as Doctor Strange, this week we discovered that Alfred Molina is returning as Doctor Octopus. With villains from both Sam Raimi’s trilogy and the Amazing Spider-Man films featuring, it stands to reason that both Maguire and Andrew Garfield will be appearing, too.
The best part about the two stars potentially returning to the franchise is that we might finally get a fulfilling ending for their character arcs – 2007’s Spider-Man 3 left things open-ended for Peter and Mary Jane and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 didn’t give Garfield’s Parker any closure at all. With Kirsten Dunst and Emma Stone rumored to be involved, as well, the chances are good we could be on the verge of getting some closure for both versions of the wallcrawler.
But first we need to know for certain that Maguire and Garfield are back. With any luck, the news will arrive sooner than later. In the meantime, Spider-Man 3 is scheduled to arrive in just over a year on December 17th, 2021.
