Is it really possible to revive an old project and give fans what they’ve been hoping for? That’s the question on the minds of Spider-Man fans as they embark on a new trending event to push for Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man 4. This group of dedicated supporters has been advocating for the sequel for quite some time, and they’re determined to make their voices heard. And you know what? I think they just might succeed.
Let’s rewind and take a look at the situation. Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3, although successful at the box office, left fans disappointed. The film was overloaded with villains and lacked the heart and humanity of Raimi’s earlier Spider-Man movies. But Raimi had a plan to redeem the franchise. He wanted to make Spider-Man 4 with Tobey Maguire and focus on The Vulture, a villain he genuinely liked. Unfortunately, the project got stuck in development limbo, and Sony rebooted the franchise with Andrew Garfield taking over the role of Spider-Man.
In any other circumstance, the idea of resurrecting Spider-Man 4 would be considered a pipe dream. But recent events suggest it might not be as impossible as it once seemed. First, Sam Raimi returned to the Marvel universe as the director of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. And to fans’ delight, Tobey Maguire made a comeback as Peter Parker in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Even Anne Hathaway and Thomas Haden Church have hinted at the possibility of a Raimi-led Spider-Man 4. With all these signs pointing in the right direction, the idea is gaining traction.
Moreover, Sony has been expanding its Spider-Man universe with movies like Madame Web and Kraven the Hunter. These films will need a Spider-Man, and who better than Tobey Maguire to fill that role? Tom Holland can continue playing his version of Peter Parker in the MCU, and Maguire can bring back the beloved character we all know and love. There are options on the table if the studios are willing to consider them.
If you’re a fan of Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man and you want to make your voice heard, mark your calendars for January 5, 2024, at 10 am EST. Fans are planning a trending event on social media using the hashtag #MakeRaimiSpiderMan4. Let’s come together and show our support for this long-awaited sequel.
