Tom Holland Claims Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire are NOT in ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming 3’. Despite sightings and rumors that heavily suggest otherwise, actor Tom Holland has shared that rumors he will be joined by the other Spider-Men from the live action films are false and he has no knowledge of their reported involvement.
His claim comes in an interview with Esquire about his career so far and while promoting his new film, Cherry, from Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame Directors Joe and Anthony Russo.
“No, no, they will not be appearing in this film,” Holland told Esquire, “Unless they have hidden the most massive piece of information from me, which I think is too big of a secret for them to keep from me. But as of yet, no. It’ll be a continuation of the Spider-Man movies that we’ve been making.”
Now, it is widely believed that this is an intentional “red herring” by Marvel Studios, who are hoping to quell the rumors of an MCU based Spider-Verse. To support our theory, it should be known that this would not be the first time Marvel Studios has purposefully not shared crucial information with Holland or have had him lie to the press as a means to cover their trail and throw off the scent for the MCU films. The studio has gone so far as to give Holland fake scripts in multiple and varying copies to prevent spoiler leaks.
“They do it all the time,” Holland explained, “In [Endgame], Robert Downey Jr.’s funeral scene, for the longest time I was under the impression that it was a wedding. I’m 100 percent sure that they’re still tricking me.”
With Jamie Foxx, Alfred Molina, and reportedly Willem Dafoe reprising their roles as the iconic villains Electro, Doc Oct, and Green Goblin, it is VERY hard to believe Holland would have to face off with these villains alone. So, take Tom’s comment with a grain of salt and stay excited for the new Spider-Man film!
