Tobey Maguire considering Spider-Man 4

Tobey Maguire with his daughterDespite rumors that Tobey Maguire will not return to the Spider-Man franchise after the first three movies, his co-star, J.K. Simmons, who plays newspaper chief J. Jonah Jameson, says Maguire may be back on screen after all as Spidey. He told IESB: “I spoke to Tobey in, I guess it was February, and he’s certainly amenable to doing some more. Hopefully we’ll be able to get everybody back and make another good one.” However, if Maguire decides not to return, actors such as Patrick Fugit, Michael Angarano and Zac Efron are being considered to replace him.

    I think it’s a good idea that he continue being spider man…the other guys that they have in mind wouldn’t compare…besides I hate it when different guys play the same character…unless they die in the movie or they get too old then of course they have to replace him…besides the spiderman sequels are pretty good…the plots are interesting…

    Zac Efron would be the most “Amazing” Spider-Man of all! 🙂

    None on that list compare to Tobey! And just for the record….I think Zac Efron is a pansy!! (D)

    Ewww! Zac Efron?!! Please telling me your joking…..that a terrible selection!

  9. Lexie • June 11, 2008 @ 9:49 AM

    What makes you think he’s a pansy? The really hot girlfriend he’s had for about two years? The nude pics she sent him? Or do you think all males who can sing are pansies? Cause then there’s a lot of pansies out there.

    Come on guys at least give him a chance…but don’t worry as soon as he breaks a nail he’ll cry and quit…

  11. Nancy • June 11, 2008 @ 12:31 PM

    Ok Lexie, let me re-phrase….Zac Efron wears more make-up than I wear…..HE’S A GIRLIE BOY! I just find that he acts very…hmmm…feminine!!

  12. sk8tergirl • June 11, 2008 @ 4:40 PM

    Zac Efron wears make-up? awkward……

    Zac Efron is just the man to energize the franchise — he’s fantastic!

  15. Sergio • June 12, 2008 @ 6:10 AM

    Didn’t realize the franchise needed energizing. What it doesn’t need is feminizing 🙂

    Zac will make Spidey cool again.

  17. tammy • June 12, 2008 @ 2:31 PM

    Anonymous I don’t know if your the same person or different people using the anonymous name but if you read the comments one is for and the other is against…so what the bleep is going on?

  18. tributegirl • June 12, 2008 @ 7:08 PM

    Lexie? Did your name used to be Gina?

  19. Lexie • June 13, 2008 @ 10:25 AM

    Hi Tributegirl. Nope, my name’s Lexie and that’s what I always post. I don’t post a lot, but every once in awhile can’t help myself. 🙂 BTW, I think Zac would be amazing as Spider-Man if Tobey steps down, but I hope Tobey comes back for the fourth one. I don’t even know who the other two guys are…. BTW, who’s Gina? Friend or foe? 🙂

  20. Nancy • June 14, 2008 @ 10:39 PM

    No Tammy, but Tributegirl and I both think that you and jennie_bearz are the same person! Maybe you aren’t the same but it justs seems VERY odd that you both post like, within a minute or so of each other most times!!! STRANGE…isn’t it?

  21. Nancy • June 14, 2008 @ 10:39 PM

    One of you even used the others name before, remember?? And then tried to cover it up with yet another STORY!!!

  22. Matthew • June 22, 2008 @ 1:52 AM

    Theres no one who could replace Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man, he is the one and the only one who could ever be Spider-Man. Hope he continues to star in the movies it wouldnt be the same without him.

    Seriously..if Toby or the other cast isnt gonna return..I, and alot of other people, will obviously not wanna go see this movie..I just..cant stand when they do this to why give us a movie with the same actors, 3 times in a row..and get us hooked into the story line..then mess it up, by changing the actors and continuity..its annoying..I’ll give you a perfect example..GO LOOK AT THE JOEL SCHUMAKER BATMAN MOVIES!..
