According to Collider, the sequel to Spider-Man: Far From Home will see the return of previous actors who played the role in past iterations of the franchise.
The posts suggest we can see the returns of Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst from the Sam Raimi trilogy as Spider-Man / Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson, respectively.
Additionally, Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, the leaders of the 2012 redesign, are also expected to return as this series’ Spidey and Gwen Stacy, respectively.
The report comes after The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Alfred Molina will reprise his role as 2004 Spider-Man 2’s Doctor Otto Octavius in the new film.
The same post previously reported that Jamie Foxx would return as Electro / Max Dillon after being last seen as the 2014 film The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opposite Andrew Garfield’s incarnation of Spider-Man / Peter Parker.
It looks like the movie is set to mirror the multiverse animated adventure of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which featured multiple parallel versions of the character from different universes.
It has also been reported by the Murphy’s Multiverse website that Charlie Cox will reprise his role as the blind superhero Daredevil / Matt Murdoch from the Netflix MCU Daredevil series in the film.
Daredevil ran for three seasons on Netflix until it was canceled in 2018.
The film will also see the return of the members of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Spidey cast.
Returning to Holland’s side, the cast members support Zendaya as MJ, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May Parker, Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds, and Tony Revolori as Flash Thompson.
It has also been confirmed that Benedict Cumberbatch will reprise his MCU role as Doctor Strange in the film, with the character already confirmed to appear in his own solo sequel, Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness.
Will Strange be the key to the appearance of these different iterations of Spidey characters?
The Strange film will also star Elizabeth Olsen reprising her role as Scarlet Witch / Wanda Maximoff, which is set to appear in her own reality TV series on Disney + in January, titled WandaVision.
The series, which also stars Paul Bettany as Android Vision, could be the key to understanding the increasingly complicated multiverse of films to come.
The Mirror has reached out to Sony Pictures for comment on these casting reports.
The untitled Spider-Man sequel is set to hit theaters on December 17, 2021.
