Earlier than Jake Johnson was solid within the position of the older Peter Parker in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Tobey Maguire, who performed Peter Parker a.ok.a. Spider-Man in Sam Raimi’s movies was thought-about for the half!
This truly would have been fairly cool! I loved Maguire’s model of Spider-Man and seeing him reprise his position for this animated movie would have been plenty of enjoyable.
Throughout an interview with administrators Bob Perischetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman, Display screen Crush requested them in the event that they ever consideration Maguire for the position, and this was their response:
“There was. There have been many ideas about the place we might put Tobey Maguire and others. I believe after this movie, these ideas might need slightly extra traction. However earlier than this film, and introducing the concept of the “Spider-Verse” to the viewers, I believe everyone was afraid that it might simply actually confuse folks. However wow, it might have been enjoyable.”
I don’t suppose audiences would have been confused in any respect! I believe they’re sensible sufficient to know that this can be a utterly separate Spider-Man franchise than what Raimi gave us, however the movie does function some enjoyable components that pay homage. I believe including Maguire would have been the final word homage.
I believe that it’s humorous that they thought this is able to confuse folks, and never the truth that they’re utterly diving into the Spider-Man multiverse and introducing a number of variations of Spider-Man!
It’s okay, although, I like Jake Johnson and it looks like he’s going to make a fantastic Peter Parker!
Would you have got favored to see Tobey Maguire play Peter Parker once more in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse?
