Marvel’s worst-kept secret may have just been confirmed. The talk of Tobey Maguire repeating his role as a web head in Spider-Man 3 has been going on for some time. Now, the Spanish dub actor for Maguire in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy has potentially spoiled his big comeback.
Roger Pera was asked during a performance on the Spanish podcast El Sotano del Planet if he would soon make an upcoming film about Spider-Man.
Pera said he was in contact with Sony and “There was a moment when I thought: this is fake, but yes, it’s going to happen, I don’t know when, but we’ll work on it.” (H / T Sebastian Puerta on Twitter for translation, verified by GamesRadar + team).

All the signs seem to point to Maguire’s Peter Parker who appeared in Spider-Man 3. Then the plot intensifies: the video containing the actor’s oak is removed and re-posted with Perry’s quotes removed from the recording. (H / T Reddit)
For its part, El Sotano del Planet responded to any suggestion of Spider-Man’s discovery in a statement on Twitter. It reads: “In our last live recording, Roger Pera could not confirm anything related to the upcoming Spiderman film due to lack of any information. Any claim to that effect has no basis.”
Of course, Pera – who has synchronized A-list actors Leonardo DiCaprio and Matt Damon in the past – may be talking about another Spider-Man project. The sequel to Into the Spider-Verse is coming out in 2022, although a synchronization of the No Way Home release in December may still be on the horizon.
Tobey Maguire could be joined by several other celebrities in Spider-Man 3. Various reports say that everyone, from Andrew Garfield to Doc Ock Alfred Molina, could appear alongside Tom Holland, Zendaya and Jacob Batalon in No Way Home.
For now, we’ll have to wait until things are official – but it certainly seems like we’ll get at least one major return of Spidey later this year, at least.
