Spider-Man: No Way Home is one of four MCU movies set to land by the end of the year. He is part of a quartet that also includes the delayed release of Black Widow. Yet, on every next MCU movie on the calendar, it’s the third Tom Holland-led Spidey movie that produces more speculation than normal.
The Threequel rumor mill has been in turmoil in recent months, with former Spider-Man cast Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire reportedly reiterating their iterations of Peter Parker, which Tom Holland has gone so far as to categorically deny. Still, that hasn’t stopped Reddit from looking for clues on the matter.
Now we’ve received our biggest indication yet that at least one of Garfield and Maguire will be part of the No Way Home cast, according to a Spanish voice actor.
During an appearance on El Sótano del Planet, a Spanish podcast on superheroes and comedy adaptations, Spanish dub actor Roger Pera was asked if he is currently directing a vocal work for upcoming Spider productions. Man.
While he didn’t mention Maguire or No Way Home in particular, Pera explained that he spoke to Sony recently, saying, “There was a point where I thought: this is wrong, but yeah, it’s going to happen, I don’t I don’t know when, but we’re going to work on it. “
You can see Pera’s translated response in the tweet below (h / t Twitter user Sebastien Puerta), as well as the original Instagram video source where Pera was asked about upcoming projects, below:
He answers: When I open Instagram, the “top” question is as follows. I have contacts with the heads of Warner, in this case Sony, there was a moment where I thought: this is wrong, but yes, it will happen, I do not know when, but we are going to to work .April 5, 2021
Spider-Man: No Way Home: Maguire Really Appear?
It’s hard to draw a firm conclusion from Pera’s comments. According to a Reddit thread discussing this rumor, Pera was the Spanish voice actor for Maguire in Raimi’s films. So some fans have taken the dub actor’s words to mean that Maguire will be will reprise his role as Peter Parker from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy if Pera is also involved.
It’s not impossible, however, that Maguire – and Pera by association – could work on another Spider-Man film. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 is another webslinger property in development at Sony Pictures. Without any details on what Pera is working on, we really don’t know what the original answer was actually alluding to.
Since February 2021, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, alongside David Callaham and Peter Ramsey, have been working on the script for the animated film. While any vocal work on this film is still a long way off, it is not impossible that Sony could call on Maguire to feature in this film to some extent. If Maguire were to hypothetically feature in this film, Pera’s talents might be needed to dub Maguire’s work in Spanish for a relevant audience.
In fact not true. Phil and I write with Dave Callaham. Phil is currently working on the script this second. Peter is an EP and is totally involved. In addition, more announcements from the creative team will be available soon.February 25, 2021
For what it’s worth, El Sótano del Planet has covered his footsteps and said that Pera hasn’t confirmed his involvement in any Spider-Man projects.
“In our last direct, Roger Pera couldn’t confirm anything regarding an upcoming Spider-Man movie due to lack of information,” reads a translation of the tweet below. “Any claim in this direction has no basis.”

This isn’t the first time Maguire has appeared in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Collider alleged that Maguire will be one of a number of returning characters from previous Spider-Man films to appear in the upcoming sequel. Speculation arose from the arrival of the Marvel Cinematic Multiverse, which we will see in the Loki Disney Plus TV series and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness movie.
As mentioned, Holland has played down rumors about Maguire and Garfield’s return in March 2021. GQ interview. It’s unclear if Holland was trying to keep fans away from the scent or if he was just telling the truth.
Either way, we’ll know for sure when Spider-Man: No Way Home hits theaters on December 17th.
