‘Spider-Man 3’: Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, Kirsten Dunst & Emma Stone Set To Return?


The cast of Spider-Man 3 is finally proving to be a powerful ensemble of stars with many names returning to the movie including Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield who will return to play their respective versions of Spider-Man in the MCU film, potentially hinting that a live-action Spider-Verse storyline is very much in play.

And now, in light of the news of Alfred Molina’s return as Doctor Octopus in Jon Watts’ Spider-Man 3, new details have emerged about the threequel that will surely excite movie fans.

Kirsten Dunst will also return as Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man 3, alongside Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy though Stone’s return would depend on her pregnancy. As a result, Stone’s return isn’t definite.

Previous reports have already emerged that Jamie Foxx’s Electro and Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange will return in the much-anticipated threequel.

It will be exciting to see both Kirsten Dunst and Emma Stone return to their respective Spider-Man roles. This means that fans will get the chance to learn more about what happened to Dunst’s Mary Jane Watson after the events of Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy. 

On the flip side, the return of Gwen Stacy will be difficult to explain, especially after the character’s death in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but this is where the multiverse comes in. If the MCU decides to double down on the idea of the multiverse, there’s a strong chance that Emma Stone will instead portray an alternate version of Gwen Stacy in the form of Spider-Gwen. 

Sony’s Into the Spider-Verse animated film already featured Spider-Gwen successfully, and the character’s live-action debut will no doubt boost fan anticipation for Spider-Man 3 even further. 

All in all, it’s safe to say that Spider-Man 3 is shaping up to be a celebration of the past and present versions of the Spider-Man franchise as a whole. If anything, that’s a good thing for fans, since the threequel offers a rare opportunity of showcasing every live-action version of Spider-Man in a surprising, yet exciting way.
