Tobey Maguire Says 'Spider-Man: No Way Home' Didn't "Close The Chapter" On His Character

Tobey Maguire Says 'Spider-Man: No Way Home' Didn't "Close The Chapter" On His Character

Spider-Man Once More

Spoilers for Spider-Man: No Way Home ahead. Although at this point we all know who's in it, right?

Tobey Maguire has finally opened up about returning as Peter Parker in Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Spider-Man fans around the world screamed in geekish delight last December when Tom Holland's wall-crawler teamed up with the Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire iterations of the character. While Garfield absolutely stole the show, given his unfinished business in the role, it was Maguire's return that provided the real nostalgic gut-punch.

He is, after all, the original big screen Spidey - and now he's revealed for the first time what drove him to come back to the part after all these years. You know, besides ten gold wheelbarrows filled with cash.

Speaking with Deadline alongside Holland and Garfield for the first time ever, Maguire explained how Sony and Marvel producers Amy Pascal and Kevin Feige convinced him to don the webs once more.

"In that conversation, the intention, the kind of love and celebration of these movies and what it meant I think to Amy and Kevin was apparent, and to me, when artists or, you know, people who are steering the creative process have a kind of authentic, genuine intent of celebration and love," he explained.

"It just was so apparent in both of them, I just wanted to join that, and I’m a big fan of Tom and those movies and Andrew. it was definitely intriguing, but yes, I was also going, ‘Well, what are we going to do? And that was a bit mysterious.”

Maguire also said he enjoyed the way the movie hinted at certain "resolutions" for his character, likely referencing the fact that he'd worked through his own issues and was - we're assuming - in a semi-stable relationship with his own MJ. Curiously, he added that his appearance may not have "closed the chapter" on his Spider-Man, which is an interesting turn of phrase given the rumours that at least one Spider-Man variant is coming back for Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness.
