Now, a recent video blunder by Sony is causing those casting rumors to emerge once again.
Over the past few months, we’ve learned that Spider-Man 3 is shaping up to be quite the film. Benedict Cumberbatch is reprising his role as Doctor Strange for the new Marvel film. Doctor Strange is set to become Peter Parker‘s new mentor following the tragic death of Tony Stark in Avengers: Endgame.
As well, Jamie Foxx is bringing back the villainous Electro for Spider-Man 3. However, Foxx may not be the only familiar face making a return. Rumors are swirling that both Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire may be reprising their Peter Parker roles for Spider-Man 3.
Back in October, Sony first addressed these casting rumors. In a brief statement to ET Canada, the company said that these castings “are not confirmed.” However, this could still mean that the actors are in talks to return for the film.
Now, even more developments about these casting rumors have emerged. This week, Sony Channel Latin America posted a video that teases the possible Garfield-Maguire-Holland reunion.
However, the marketing video was swiftly taken down by Sony shortly after it was posted. The video’s words translate in English to, “Who is your favorite Spider-Man? You don’t have to choose — in the Marvel Multiverse, anything can happen.”
L’une des chaînes YouTube de Sony avait partagé cette vidéo qui confirmait la présence des Spider-Man de Tobey et Andrew dans le film “Spider-Man 3”, mais la vidéo est désormais passée en privé… Très intéréssant 🧐😏 https://t.co/Mxf7Z7HLlE pic.twitter.com/imrtf6FJNM

Along with this, Spider-Man star Zendaya also addressed the ongoing casting rumors in a new interview. The Golden Globe-winning actress was recently on Jimmy Kimmel Live where the talk show host asked her about Garfield and Maguire appearing in the film.
Despite being put on the spot, Zendaya remained coy.
“Everything is very secretive,” she says.
Kimmel continued to pry, asking Zendaya if the “3” in Spider-Man 3 had anything to do with the casting rumors. However, despite the effort, she simply replied with, “I can neither confirm nor deny.”
So far, the cast of Spider-Man 3 has revealed very little about the new film. Back in October, Holland shared that he has read what happens in the new Spider-Man film, but fans shouldn’t expect any spoilers from him anytime soon. Shortly after this, Jacob Batalon teased that there’s a surprising moment in the film not even the actors were expecting.
Spider-Man 3 is set to arrive on Dec. 17, 2021. However, according to ScreenRant, the first look at the new film may be arriving sooner than you think. Last month, ExpoCine held its annual Latin America-based event virtually. Warner Bros., Disney, Universal, Netflix and Sony all appeared at the convention.
At the event, Camila Pacheco, who is the Executive Marketing Director of Sony Pictures Entertainment in Brazil, revealed that the film has already started production. Additionally, fans can expect a first look to arrive sometime this month, a full year before the film is scheduled to premiere.
