When it was confirmed that Tobey Maguire would reprise the role of Peter Parker for Spider-Man: No Way Home, it didn't take long for rumors to spring up that Sam Raimi was in talks to helm a fourth solo movie featuring the original big-screen wall-crawler.

We didn't put too much stock in the rumors at the time, but when No Way Home came out and made over a $1 billion worldwide, Sony Pictures attempting to capitalise on that success by revisiting Raimi's trilogy - as well as The Amazing Spider-Man movies starring Andrew Garfield - started to seem a lot more feasible.

Raimi was asked about the rumors while speaking to CBR at CinemaCon.

“Well, I haven’t heard about that yet,” the Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness director responded. “I did read that, but I’m not actually working on it yet. I mean, Marvel and Columbia are so successful with current Spider-Man [movies], and the track there, and I don’t know that they’re going to go back to me, and say, ‘Well, folks, we can also tell that story!'”

He continued, “I’m not sure, but I love all the new Spider-Man movies. I loved Spider-Man: No Way Home. It was really, super powerful seeing Tobey [Maguire] again in it.”

So, it doesn't sound like anything is currently in the works, but that "yet" could indicate that he has had discussions about a potential Spider-Man 4 or is at the very least interested in the possibility of returning to the franchise.

In a previous interview, Raimi said he would love to work with Maguire and Kirsten Dunst again.

“I’ve come to realize after making Doctor Strange that anything is possible, really anything in the Marvel universe, any team-ups,” the filmmaker said in a 2002 interview with ComicBook.com. “I love Tobey. I love Kirsten Dunst. I think all things are possible. I don’t really have a story or a plan. I don’t know if Marvel would be interested in that right now. I don’t know what their thoughts are about that. I haven’t really pursued that. But it sounds beautiful. Even if it wasn’t a Spider-Man movie, I’d love to work with Tobey again, in a different role.”

Unfortunately we are stuck with Holland Spidey for the foreseeable future.

@McMurdo - Cry about it like you always do.
dagenspear - 4/1/2024, 9:51 PM
@ANewPope - Crying can be a cathartic and not bad thing all by itself. What's wrong with that?
lazlodaytona - 4/2/2024, 5:30 AM
@dagenspear - very smooth. and completely correct.
dagenspear - 4/2/2024, 5:34 AM
@lazlodaytona - I thank God for that.

@dagenspear - you're a good dude

Why can't we live in a world where we get both TASM 3 and SM4?
KennKathleen - 4/1/2024, 7:20 PM
@Highflyer - we should. Make it the Amazing Spider-Man & the Spectacular Spider-Man.
DocSpock - 4/1/2024, 7:32 PM
@Highflyer -

Because no one wants to live in a world with those horrible ASM movies.
dagenspear - 4/1/2024, 9:50 PM
@Highflyer - I think TASM 2 was fairly poorly done moreso and heavily reliant on the idea of a sequel and SM3 was a messy movie but with resolve, focus and structure. I think, while ironically TASM 2 could use a sequel to help itself out more and would align with the idea of it's set up, I think it shot itself in the foot with it and any sequel lending itself to quality writing would rely more on soft rebooting from where TASM 2 left off rather than being much of a sequel to it. Could happen, but I think Raimi's SM3 didn't leave itself on any hooks it had to mess with much.

@Highflyer - Politics, company competition, and money.

@DocSpock - The Amazing Spider-Man 1 was well recieved. The second one, not so much, but even the audiences had a good reaction to elements like Gwen's death that they were invested in the call back in No way home.

MMKAY.... Alan Ritchson as cap though?

@TheRationalNerd - That's a good idea. He'll fit very well for Eddie.

It's 2024 and people are still falling for April Fools shenanigans.
MCUKnight11 - 4/1/2024, 8:07 PM
@SonOfAGif - I don't see what the big deal is about April fools. I live April 1st the same way I live every day of my life. Not believing anything I read and not trusting anyone.
SonOfAGif - 4/1/2024, 8:08 PM
@MCUKnight11 - I see.
SpiderParker - 4/1/2024, 10:23 PM
@SonOfAGif - Actually, I was disappointed for the lack of April Fools shenanigans.
lazlodaytona - 4/2/2024, 5:53 AM
@MCUKnight11 - so, you live every day with no fun? :D
BritishMonkey - 4/1/2024, 8:00 PM
If Sony had any brains left they'll make a Raimi Spider-Man 4.
It's guaranteed to get a billion.
SonOfAGif - 4/1/2024, 8:06 PM
@BritishMonkey - I don't think it will. Right now the Multiverse concept is a big selling point whether we like it or not. Despite Marvel Studios having a bump on the road, They still control the market share for the superhero genre. So until we leave the Multiverse, A lot of standalone hero stories won't sell well.
MyCoolYoung - 4/1/2024, 8:20 PM
I don't really care if we get Spider-Man 4 lol last Spider-Man in the Tobey universe came out almost 20 years ago. Let Tobey beat some ass in secret wars and fly off into the sunset.

Also, I'm not sure why people was trying to convince me otherwise but no way home was a really good movie amd contrary to what people say, Tom Holland shined more than anyone else
dagenspear - 4/1/2024, 9:45 PM
@MyCoolYoung - Holland's version is like watching a puppy be Spider-Man. He lacks the majority of the weight, I think partially based on the material he's given and partially of his performance. So no, I disagree he shined. Andrew had a more interesting performance and Tobey had the better material and gave more weight as well to me.
MyCoolYoung - 4/2/2024, 1:06 AM
@dagenspear - I 100% disagree. Adding the redemption arc to Andrew’s Spider-Man was dope as well as have him be the one who pulled his punches but I think nostalgia carry yall with Tobey’s because he didn’t have a whole lot to do in no way home.

Tom and Marissa killed the death scene and as well as carrying the anger and grief during the scenes with Willem. I’m not sure why yall are hell bent on denying that he did well
dagenspear - 4/2/2024, 1:27 AM
@MyCoolYoung - NWH has nothing to really do with my assessment of Tobey's Peter. Partially similar with Andrew's, all that did was provide Andrew with an allowance of showing Peter being more humbled.

His anger, like I said, felt like a puppy being mad to me. He had some solid stuff in that movie, but he hasn't been given the material to properly build up to that and his version was always wide eyed to me, not enough like Spider-Man to me.
Apophis71 - 4/2/2024, 6:36 AM
@dagenspear - Cos Holland has been the high school Peter thus far that we only briefly got in the first act of the first film with the last two, ie the period where he is supposed to be more puppy like and less weighed down by the weight of the world/role. As such STILL feel it is unfair to directly compare the teen SM to the two young adult iterations we had previously until we see him in the next film or three.
dagenspear - 4/2/2024, 1:39 PM
@Apophis71 - Except in his comic origin, he was still darker than this. And this version's origin has been outright ignored, to the point where Ben's grave doesn't even seem to exist, losing the weight of what drove the character.
JFerguson - 4/1/2024, 8:47 PM
I’m not really interested in it. Theres a high chance the movie would be a legacy story featuring mayday Parker or something similar to Logan. Can’t really see any other type of story being justified.

I’m ready for more hollands version and more of the other 2 in secret wars though

This image no longer represents the Spider-man movies Raimi did. Meme culture took it. It only represents holding in a poop now. Sorry.
Rosraf - 4/2/2024, 5:44 AM
@mountainman - can't it be both and/or can't both be the same?
mountainman - 4/2/2024, 6:43 AM
@Rosraf - Anything that has been used in memes or gifs heavily almost means what it represents there more than the original intent. Sometimes the meme or gif has the same meaning as the original, like the grandpa simpson walking into the bar, seeing Bart, and leaving meme. That scene will still mean what it always has meant. But I know if I see Spider-man 2, watch this scene (which is a great scene by the way), I will absolutely laugh at Toby’s poop face. The meme has ruined it for me.
Rosraf - 4/2/2024, 1:25 PM
@mountainman - Spiderman and/or McGuire could be both (portraying) trying to stop a run away train AND pinching off a would-be log at the same time. They are BOTH that talented and focussed.
mountainman - 4/2/2024, 1:30 PM
@Rosraf - Could toy imagine if Peter had eaten from a shady street food vendor the night before and he was simultaneously trying to hold that on while saving the train?
Pathogen - 4/1/2024, 9:35 PM
Man, for the love of God stop with Tobey Maquire. He is a terrible spider-man, by all reports a terrible human being.

Get rid of him and his annoying face
dagenspear - 4/1/2024, 9:43 PM
@Pathogen - How is he a terrible human being?

We can debate his performance if you want, but the writing for him was still stronger than any other live action version overall.
lazlodaytona - 4/2/2024, 5:56 AM
@Pathogen - Marvel has yet to make a film as good as Raimi's Spiderman 2.
Pathogen - 4/2/2024, 11:37 AM
@lazlodaytona - hehe that was a good joke
