Just a month ago, Marvel fans were given a treat of a lifetime when they saw Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield reprise their roles at Peter Parker in 'Spider-Man: No Way Home.' After months of speculation, the duo's return not only sent fans into a tizzy over Marvel's homage to its beloved (and in the case of Garfield, not so beloved) past but also opened up a door of possibilities. Would they return again in future films? Well, it seems like one Spidey might.

Marvel tried and clearly failed to hide the fact that both Maguire and Garfield were in 'No Way Home' (NWH), and the rumor mill has only continued to grow since. We've heard rumors Garfield will be getting a third act, even as Tom Holland hinted he might be done as the wall-crawler, at least for a while. But what about Tobey? The actor's been extremely quiet since the film was released, and rumors surrounding him have been almost nonexistent, till late January 2022.

MCU in 2021: Five moments from Marvel Cinematic Universe that blew our minds

With three versions of Spider-Man now in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it seems like Marvel is going all out to capitalize on its success of NWH. The next film to release is 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness' on May 6, 2022, and it appears Tobey could make another cameo there.

Will Tobey suit up for Doctor Strange 2?

When he did swing into our screens in NWH, Marvel appeared to indicate that Tobey's Peter Parker was possibly done. His appearance in the film appeared to be a one-off, meant to pay homage to the original run of films he starred in, rather than kickstart a series of appearances in the future. But, it appears Marvel may not be done with him just yet. A photo could indicate Tobey's return in the Doctor Strange sequel, thanks to Portuguese voice actress Mariana Torres.

Torres, who provides the Portuguese voice for Wanda Maximoff, posted an Instagram story on January 21 with Manolo Rey, who voices Tobey Maguire. She captioned that photo "Good things are coming!!!" Of course, it could just be a mere coincidence, and the two are probably working on another project together, but it's led to heavy speculation that Tobey could cameo in Doctor Strange 2. 



 

 

It's worth taking Torres' photo with a pinch of salt for now, because as one Twitter user pointed out, "Manolo Rey is a dub director. He can be involved in Doctor Strange localization and not specifically voicing Tobey." It appears though, his warnings had little effect on excited fans. The photo was first posted on Twitter by @SpideyUpdates, where people reacted with comments like "nah tobey makes more sense because sam raimi is directing," and "it'd be great to see Tobey and Sam Raimi work together again." Another joked, "Forget Tom Holland spoiling things...now we have to watch for the voice over artists."



 



 



 

 

Similar comments were made on Twitter, with one user noting, "I think it’s likely. It’s Raimi. Why wouldn’t he want to give his baby time to shine? Perfect timing and perfect set-up." Another said, "Raimi and Tobey back at last!" Of course, many others pointed out it could just be a mere coincidence, and not related to Doctor Strange 2 at all. But with the way Marvel managed to pull off NWH, keep your eyes peeled out for a Tobey cameo in the upcoming film, you may be in for a surprise.
