Spider-Man: No Way Home was a massive success. It combined with Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness for the MCU to beat the DCEU to the multiverse punch, as they were too busy playing with themselves around endless delays and reshoots for The Flash. A common theme in head-to-head history between the two comic book juggernauts. With success like that, Sony will want, demand, more entries in the franchise.
One slight issue, though, Spider-Man: No Way Home seemed to reach a conclusion for this iteration of Spider-Man, separating him from his true love, his best friend, his Aunt May and his entire previous story arc. It definitely seemed like an ending. So where the hell do they go next?
Actor Thomas Haden Church, who played villain Sandman / Flint Marko in both the Toby Maguire-led Spider-Man 3, and Spider-Man: No Way Home, says he heard a rumor. In an interview with ComicBook.com, he said:
“There’s always been some kind of… I’ve heard rumors… that Sam Raimi was going to do another [Spider-Man movie] with Tobey [Maguire], and if that happens, I would probably campaign to maybe at least do a cameo.”
Raimi returned to the Marvel fold with the second Doctor Strange movie, and it was clear that Maguire and Andrew Garfield were having the time of their lives being back in their most famous role. This is not the first time a Raimi return has been mentioned.
Talks between current Spider-Man Tom Holland and Sony / Marvel are paused due to the actors strike. Sony’s universe formerly known as SPUMC remains challenged by poor results. They need the Marvel collaboration to keep the cash flowing.
