If Sony had their way, the “Spider-Man” sequels won’t stop til sometime in the 22nd century. In life though there are other factors to consider, one of them being your cast members.

Now, Tobey Maguire has said in recent comments to Starpulse News that he may have had enough of Peter Parker, though isn’t entirely ruling out a fourth go at it.

Maguire says “This might be a good place to stop – I am not tied contractually to any more Spider-Man movies. I am not completely closed to the idea of another one if it made sense but I would say the odds were in favor of this being the last one”.

Both Maguire and Dunst, who have three film contracts, have expressed mixed desire to return to the franchise now that they’ve finished working on the three films.

Of course, a huge paycheck always helps quell doubt.

Yeah, just throw some money at him, he’s what helps with the believability of the character…besides, when was the last time we actually saw him in another movie…


PS This is coming off of a long line of people that are not coming back to their respective franchises: The Ocean’s boys, Keira Knightly said no to a Pirates 4 (I would too, too much might be too much, don’t ruin something that is special) and some other people that I don’t remember right at this moment in time…

  1. If Sam Raimi does Spidey 4, then it’s going to be good. Tobey or no Tobey (though I suspect that Sam Raimi could probably convince the cast to come back – if not, the money helps).

    I guess they’re worried about typecasting, you’ve got to be careful about that. Not that it’s such a bad thing, I don’t really like Tobey Maguire’s other movies. And Kirsen Dunst…wasn’t she in Bring It On? I don’t think she has much to complain about.

  2. she actually has been in a lot of movies over the last fifteen or so years. Her first movie was the vampire girl in Interview with a Vampire with Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise, so when she first started acting she hit it big. She was also in Jumanji.
