Alfred Molina and More to Return for next Spider-Man film
I thought that it would take us a few more years until we would get a crossover film on the level of Into the Spiderverse or Avengers: Endgame. As it turns out, though, we may be getting it as soon as the end of next year. With the MCU gearing up for a delayed start to its Phase 4 in 2021, Marvel is going in strong. And it’s going to be bringing back a fan-favorite villain.
For some time now, it’s been rumored that many castmembers from the previous live-action iterations of Spider-Man would be making a return of some kind in the next Spider-Man MCU film. Today, Spider-Fans got a big treat when the Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Alfred Molina will be returning to play his role as Dr. Octopus. In addition, rumors have circulated that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will make an appearance in the next Spidey film. And that a lot of the cast from their films will also return.
I’M FREAKING OUT HERE!
My reaction to all this news:
For my generation, Tobey Maguire was the Spider-Man. He’s who introduced us to the Wall-Crawler! And while I think Tom Holland captures the youthful energy better, Tobey still holds a place in my heart. The fact that he may return as Spider-Man is huge.
Andrew Garfield, on the other hand…
I never saw The Amazing Spider-Man films, so I have no right to judge. However, I just didn’t like how they looked for some reason. If you have a problem, sue me.
This is all coming on the heels of rumors that the next Spider-Man film will involve Dr. Strange and some Multiverse Hijinks. If they’re really going to connect the MCU to a greater multiverse with the Sam Raimi and Andrew Garfield films, the implications are huge for the MCU’s future. A whole new world of stories to be had. Limitless ideas to be found! I can’t wait!
Let me know what your thoughts are on this, though!
