SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME Actor JB Smoove Seemingly Confirms A Major SPOILER About The Movie
Actor/comedian JB Smoove is set to return as Julius Dell in Spider-Man: No Way Home, and in a new interview, the Curb Your Enthusiasm alum appeared to drop a pretty major spoiler about the threequel.
Kevin Feige may be forced to send those Marvel snipers over to JB Smoove's place next!
The Curb Your Enthusiasm actor is set to reprise the role of Peter Parker's teacher Julius Dell in Spider-Man: No Way Home, and during a recent interview with The Illuminerdi, he seemingly confirmed that both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will be back as their respective takes on the webbed wonder for the Sony Pictures threequel.
When asked which villain he was looking forward to seeing in action, Smoove said, "Jamie Foxx coming back, baby. Come on, what’s up, Jamie! That’s my dude right there, I’m excited, I’m very excited about it.” The actor was then asked if he was more excited about Tom Holland's Spidey teaming-up with Tobey Maguire or Andrew Garfield, and responded, “Tobey Maguire of course, man.”
At this point, Maguire and Garfield's returns are probably the worst kept secret in Hollywood, but we still haven't had official confirmation that the original Spider-Man trilogy and The Amazing Spider-Man stars will be swinging into action in the film. There was no sign of either of them in the trailer, and a few leaks (some of which have since proved to be fake) aside, their involvement seems to be something Kevin Feige and co. would rather remain under wraps.
So, Smoove all-but confirming their return here probably won't sit very well with Marvel Studios brass!

In some ways, it's a shame Marvel/Sony weren't able to keep a lid on this because seeing all three Spider-Men together on the big screen with no prior knowledge of their involvement would have been truly spectacular. Unfortunately, it's next to impossible to keep a secret this big hidden from the various trades and online scoopers these days.
