Spider-Man 4 is not yet on the cards, but Justice League star Ray Porter is already on it and requested Sony to bring Tobey Maguire in the titular role.
Spider-Man is a huge franchise, and Tom Holland is the leading actor in the current franchise. There are rumors that the former Spider-Man actors Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will join him in the third installment. While some are satisfied with Maguire and Garfield supporting Holland, some want Maguire in the titular role.
Spider-Man 4 with Tobey Maguire
Ray Porter, who plays as Darkseid in Zack Snyder’s superhero movie Justice League called out Sony to bring Tobey Maguire in the fourth installment. It’s been over a decade since Sam Raimie’s trilogy ended, but many are still looking forward to seeing Maguire as Spidey.
“This is a request from the many, many, many, many fans asking that you please bring back Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man in Spider-Man 4,” he said in the video.
“The fans really, really wanted it. They were so sad when they heard about the cancelation of Spider-Man 4. They want Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man in Spider-Man 4. You know what to do.”

Twitter netizens react
Several netizens agreed with Porter because they also wanted Tobey Maguire back. Meanwhile, others wanted Andrew Garfield instead.
“Everyone wants a strong, mature, strategic, and a Spider-Man that’s a man: Tobey Maguire instead of a whiny, immature, cringy, and a maiden Spider-Man: Tom Holland,” one commented, agreeing with Porter.
“Am I the only one that prefers Andrew Garfield,” another commented.
Fans have different favorites, so some believe that it’s best to just see all three actors together. Many agreed to just keep all three, Maguire, Porter, and Tom Holland. So, they suggested that Sony push the spider verse as a future event where the three actors could appear on the screen together and fight the sinister 6 as a team.
Tom Holland and two more Spideys
Many are impressed and happy with Tom Holland’s performance, so he will be returning in another installment. But there are rumors that aside from him, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, who previously played the titular superhero, will join Holland in Spider-Man 3.
Many are excited to see three Spideys in the movie, but the rumor isn’t confirmed yet. A rep for Sony Pictures released a statement but didn’t confirm nor deny the speculations, which only intensified the rumors.
“Those rumoured castings are not confirmed,” the speaker told ET Canada.
