While Garfield’s casting is currently set, offering him the chance to once again face Jamie Foxx’s Electro after The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Maguire is reportedly still in talks with the two studios for his reprisal of his career-defining role, but should it go through, he will be in good company as on-screen love Dunst is also confirmed to return as Mary Jane Watson, while Garfield’s screen romantic partner Emma Stone’s involvement is currently unknown.
Tom Holland will return for the untitled third Spider-Man film as the titular wall-crawler alongside Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange, going up against Jamie Foxx’s Electro. Given the ending of Far From Home, however, any number of his rogues’ gallery are also likely eager for a fight. The third installment to the MCU’s Spider-Man films will also feature the return of Zendaya (Euphoria, Dune) as MJ and Jacob Batalon as Ned.
While most of the original series cast are set to return for the threequel, Foxx’s casting further blurs the lines across Sony’s three web-slinging franchises, with the previous installment bringing back J.K. Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson from Sam Raimi’s trilogy and the studio’s Sony Universe of Marvel Characters led by Venom expected to crossover into the Marvel Cinematic Universe series soon.
Originally scheduled for a July 16, 2021 release, the untitled Spider-Man 3 was first pushed back to November 5 and will now bow on December 17, 2021.
