Spider-Verse Bosses Discuss Possible Holland, Garfield, and Maguire Cameos
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller won’t rule out potential live-action Spider-Men cameos from Sony.
The Live-Action Spider-Men Played By Tom Holland, Tobey Maguire, And Andrew Garfield Could Potentially Appear In Spider-Man: Through the Spider-Verse (Part One)according to producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.
Lord and Miller – who also co-wrote the upcoming Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse sequel — discussed the likelihood of Holland, Maguire, and Garfield appearing in the animated film, in a recent interview with Variety. The couple declined to confirm that the three actors would star in Through the Spider-Verse but didn’t rule it out either. Miller cheekily points out that “anything is possible in the Multiverse”. When told that this ambiguous response would only fuel fan speculation, Lord quipped, “RIP my mentions!”
Released in 2018, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse brought together several alternate universe incarnations of the web-slinger, including Shameik Moore’s Miles Morales, Jake Johnson’s Peter B. Parker, and Hailee Steinfeld’s Gwen Stacy/Spider-Woman. This core trio was also joined by Spider-Man Noir (Nicholas Cage), Peni Parker (Kimiko Glenn), and Peter Porker/Spider-Ham (John Mulaney).
While the film’s interdimensional crew received rave reviews, Lord noted in the Variety interview that Spider-Man: No Coming Home “raised the bar” for multi-Spidey movies when it hits theaters in December 2021. The MCU Movie had fewer wall robots than In the spider verse but he made up for that shortfall by bringing together three generations of Spider-Men live-action – something many fans thought would never happen.
In an effort to surpass both Into the Spider-Verse and No coming homeLord and Miller introduce even more variations of Spider-Men into Through the Spider-Verse when it arrives in October. This includes Issa Rae as Jessica Drew’s version of Spider-Woman and Oscar Isaac as Miguel O’Hara/Spider-Man 2099, a character first teased in Into the Spider-Verseof the post-credits scene. Although none of the live-action Spider-Men are officially confirmed to appear in Through the Spider-VerseHolland previously revealed that he has expressed an interest in appearing in any future spider worms installments only for the powers that be at Sony to let it hang.
Lord and Miller also recently addressed broader speculation that the spider worms The franchise and the Marvel Cinematic Universe could cross paths, arguing that the Multiverse concept made such an event possible, at least in theory. “The multiverse is big and wide. And all things grow…Why would you think that a multiverse, in which many things are possible, which [those things are] not related?” Miller mused, while Lord joked that anything is possible in the Multiverse except an MCU/Spider-Verse crossover.
Spider-Man: Through the Spider-Verse (Part One) hits theaters October 7th.
