Naturally, Spider-Man fans (and superhero fans in general) were happy to see Maguire and Garfield reprise their roles as wallcrawlers. And, while fans have been excited over the pair’s return, fans have begun campaigning on social media to revive their Spider-Man film franchise — including the hashtag #makeTASM3, #TheAmazingSpiderMan 3 And # MakeRaimiSpiderMan4 No Way Home has been doing the rounds online since its release.

While Maguire’s Spider-Man trilogy has a loyal following, however, it’s Garfield’s webslinger that fans really want to see more of. The Tick, Tick… Boom! The actor’s Spider-Man film series was shortened after the disappointing and overstuffed film The Amazing Spider-Man 2. But, behind his scene-stealing turn at No Way Home, Spidey fanatics want him to don the coveted red and blue suit on a regular basis again.

Garfield is up for two awards for his leading role in Netflix’s Tick, Tick… Boom – in a Variety profile piece ahead of the 2022 Golden Globes ceremony! – Garfield was asked if he was ready to reprise his role as Spider-Man in the future. Unsurprisingly, he was candid in his response.

With a combination of Garfield’s Spider-Man trilogy falling short of poor critical reception, and Marvel and Sony teaming up to bring the superhero to the MCU, the actor’s potential return as a webslinger will be tempting to watch.

Despite The Amazing Spider-Man film series being by far the weakest of the three, Garfield’s turn as Peter Parker/Spider-Man was electrifying; The actor brought a real emotional depth to a character whose themes of guilt, identity, sacrifice, power and taking responsibility have resonated with comic fans for decades.

Garfield’s Spider-Man also got some long closures as part of the plot of No Way Home – the actor told Variety that “I’m just really grateful that I had to tie up some loose ends for Peter which I was playing”. But, with Garfield and Spidey fans alike wishing he would reprise his role between 2012 and 2014, is a more permanent return on the cards?

On the surface, judging by Garfield’s comments on some closure for his Spider-Man incarnation, this seems unlikely. No Way Home provides Garfield’s webslinger with the happy ending he needed. And, with Marvel and Sony moving forward with a possible fourth Spidey MCU film starring Tom Holland, it’s doubtful that both studios will want to. two The Spider-Man film series is running alongside each other. Eventually, fans may be confused as to which Spidey exists in which universe, their respective villains, and other story elements.

But never say no. Garfield clearly loved his time as Spider-Man, and his iteration is definitely one we’d love to see again.

And our wish can be fulfilled. According to major Marvel movie leaker MyTimeToShineHello, there are “other options.”multiple projects“Available for Garfield to return as Spider-Man in the future, either as a solo project or in a cameo/supporting role capacity.

One possibility that will blow fans’ tongues could be a Spider-Man vs. Venom movie. During one of the scenes after the credits of No Way Home, Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock/Venom was pulled back into his own universe after being pulled into the MCU at the end of Venom: Let There Be Carnage? Cause? Holland’s Spider-Man and Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange cast a magical spell at No Way Home that nearly collides with the Multiverse MCU.

Some fans expected Hardy Venom to take on Holland’s Webslinger at some point, but it now appears to be a non-starter. Instead, though, could Hardy’s venom cross paths with Garfield’s Spider-Man? If they did, it would render both characters the third installment in their respective series of films. Sony and Marvel could also go with a title like ‘The Amazing Spider-Man Verses’. Venom’, instead of ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 3’ or ‘Venom 3’, is the same as the DCEU flick ‘Batman Versus’. Superman’.

According to Another Marvel Studios Leaker DanielRPK, this is also a distinct possibility. While the DanielRPK doesn’t reveal which version of Spider-Man might fight Venom in the latter’s third solo film, it would have been great if it was Garfield’s version.

So will Garfield’s Spider-Man return to the big screen? Not officially yet (if at all), but we’d love to see it happen. Many of the MyTimeToShineHello and DanielRPK rumors have been proven true in the past, so there’s a good chance that Some There has been talk about Garfield’s return. We will be happy if he does, and we are sure the actor will too, but time will tell if his and our hopes come true.
