With their ” Spider-Man ” trilogy, “Evil Dead” mastermind Sam Raimi and leading actor Tobey Maguire heaved the wall crawler onto the big screen for the first time in the early 2000s and also laid an important foundation for the modern comic blockbuster. And after the controversial “Spider-Man 3”, “Spider-Man 4” was actually already planned.
However, since Raimi was dissatisfied with the scripts and the planned schedule, the project was finally buried – and the series was rebooted with ” The Amazing Spider-Man ” and the new Spidey Andrew Garfield . And that ultimately happened in a very similar way, after “ The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ” there were at least two more sequels with Garfield, which ultimately fizzled out.
The sensation was all the greater when both Maguire and Garfield celebrated a brilliant comeback at the end of 2021 in the MCU multiverse adventure ” Spider-Man: No Way Home ” alongside the third cinema Spider-Man Tom Holland . It was so well received that many Marvel fans are now also clamoring for the previously planned sequels “Spider-Man 4” and “The Amazing Spider-Man 3” in addition to Tom Holland ‘s next Spidey appearance.

Since then, the rumor mill has been bubbling about the two alleged projects. Recently it was even rumored that internally they had long since given the green light for “Spider-Man 4″ with Maguire , which Sam Raimi was allowed to implement according to his own ideas from back then. And that’s exactly what Raimi was asked by the website Fandango in the run-up to his own MCU adventure ” Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness ” (Theatrical release: May 4, 2022) . Raimi’s statements make it clear that there is probably nothing to the rumor in question, since he does not yet know about any plans for “Spider-Man 4”, but he does not want to rule out the sequel…
That’s what Sam Raimi says about “Spider-Man 4”
In an interview with Fandango , Raimi explained that after working on Doctor Strange 2, he realized that the Marvel Universe has no limits: “I think anything is possible. I don’t really have a story or a plan. I don’t know if Marvel would be interested in it right now. […] I didn’t really follow that. But it sounds wonderful. “
So Sam Raimi would definitely like a fourth “Spider-Man” movie with Tobey Maguire, even if he doesn’t seem to know anything about how likely such a movie really is. At the latest after this expression of interest, the chances should actually not be that bad. In the following video, FILMSTARTS video producer and comic expert Sebastian explains what a sequel to his “Spider-Man” trilogy could look like:

But even if there were neither Spider-Man 4 nor The Amazing Spider-Man 3, it’s still possible we’ll see the two Tom Holland predecessors again in another film, maybe one other MCU adventures or in the largely independent Marvel film universe that Sony is currently building with anti-heroes from the “Spider-Man” cosmos (but still without Spidey himself).
Venom ( Tom Hardy ), Morbius ( Jared Leto ) and Co. are supposed to meet Spider-Man sooner or later. And with Tom Holland remaining in the MCU, Garfield or Maguire could be possible candidates here. As Sam Raimi rightly says, the possibilities are now endless in the Marvel Multiverse…
