Fans have been sent into overdrive, thanks to speculation suggesting that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield – who both previously played Spider-Man in the past – are set to feature in the film alongside Tom Holland’s Peter Parker.
There were more multi-verse rumours that tipped Alfred Molina to return as Spider-Man 2 villain Doctor Octopus/Otto Octavius for the latest instalment and according to new reports, the cast is set to get even more star-studded.
Spidey fans could be seeing the return of Norman Osborn aka the Green Goblin, too.
Actor Dafoe, who took on the Green Goblin during the 2002 version of Spider-Man, is set to make a comeback along with Dane DeHaan, who played Norman’s son Harry.
Insider Daniel Richtman teased the news on Twitter, sharing a GIF of Dafoe and revealing: ‘Welp we finally have our Norman Osborn in the MCU and it’s Defoe again!’
According to We Got This Covered, Richtman has said that both stars are in talks with Marvel studios, but are yet to officially sign on to the movie.
Other stars that have previously appeared in Spider-Man films in the past and are tipped to make a comeback, include Emma Stone and Jamie Foxx who formerly played Electro.
It was claimed that Kirsten Dunst would be making a comeback as MJ in the MCU sequel – after starring as Peter Parker’s love interest when Maguire was playing the superhero in Sam Raimi’s trilogy that first hit screens in 2002.
However, a rep for Dunst insisted the reports were false and ‘there are no discussions going on’.
Columbia Pictures and Marvel Entertainment then brought out a Spider-Man reboot, where Garfield took over from Maguire as the web-slinging superhero for The Amazing Spider-Man series between 2012 and 2014.
In the MCU movies, Holland takes over as Spider-Man and Zendaya plays MJ.
The first film, Spider-Man: Homecoming, was released in 2017, while Spider-Man: Far From Home hit the big screen last year.
Holland confirmed in October that shooting for Spider-Man 3 has officially started in Atlanta, Georgia, as he shared a video of him arriving in the US from Spain, where he had been working on Uncharted.
The actor revealed he’d be on shoot with Spider-Man 3 until March, with the movie set to be released on December 12 in 2021.
