Rumors about the possible casting of the third film in the Spider-Man 3 franchise with Tom Holland in the lead role already indicate that the title could be one of the biggest releases of cinema in 2021. In addition to having confirmation that Jamie Foxx will be in franchise, Alfred Molina has also been confirmed and will be back in the role of Doctor Octopus.
Now, two well-known villains from the Spider trilogy with Tobey Maguire can also make their way back to the franchise: the Green Goblin and the Sandman. Some information points out that the actors responsible for playing the characters, Willem Dafoe and Thomas Haden Church, respectively, are already in negotiations with Sony to return to the skin of the antagonists of Spider-Man and Spider-Man 3 of 2007.
It is important to highlight that this information is only rumors and, therefore, should only be considered as such. In addition, the person responsible for divulging the facts, the portal The Illuminerdi, is not very famous when it comes to leaking information about the cinema, but he was already responsible for getting some predictions right. In addition, a more traditional and trusted insider in the Marvel universe, Charles Murphy, also shared the Illuminerdi’s leaks.
If the rumor is true and the studio does in fact have ongoing conversations with the actors, we can see that Sony is quite committed to bringing in well-known – and loved – figures from previous films by the scholar. It is worth remembering that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield have also been quoted to return to the film and Charlie Cox is another name that should be present in the title.
The third Spider-Man film with Tom Holland – which does not yet have an official name – is due to be released in the third quarter of 2021.
