Sam Raimi Shuts Down Rumors of Him Working on 'Spider-Man 4' With Tobey Maguire
Columbia Pictures

The 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness' director previously declared in 2022 that he was open to the idea of helming a fourth 'Spider-Man' with Tobey and Kirsten Dunst again.

AceShowbiz - Sam Raimi has put cold water on rumors about him working on "Spider-Man 4" with Tobey Maguire. In a new interview, the director claimed that he is "not actually working on it yet."

"Well, I haven't heard about that yet," the 64-year-old told CBR during WonderCon about the rumors. "I did read that, but I'm not actually working on it yet. I mean, Marvel and Columbia are so successful with current Spider-Man [movies], and the track there, and I don't know that they're going to go back to me, and say, 'Well, folks, we can also tell that story!' "

"I'm not sure, but I love all the new Spider-Man movies," the filmmaker further elaborated. "I loved Spider-Man: No Way Home. It was really, super powerful seeing Tobey [Maguire] again in it."

Raimi went on to note, "I haven't talked to Tobey about it, but maybe Marvel has, or Columbia Pictures." He then added, "But, I just worked with Marvel on a movie called Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. So, I'm on great terms with them. I'm sure I would hear about it if it was in the works. I think so. I don't know."

Raimi previously declared that he was open to the idea of helming a fourth "Spider-Man" with Tobey and Kirsten Dunst again. "I've come to realize after making Doctor Strange that anything is possible, really anything in the Marvel universe, any team-ups," he said in a 2022 interview with ComicBook.

"I love Tobey. I love Kirsten Dunst. I think all things are possible. I don't really have a story or a plan. I don't know if Marvel would be interested in that right now. I don't know what their thoughts are about that. I haven't really pursued that," he continued. But it sounds beautiful. Even if it wasn't a Spider-Man movie, I'd love to work with Tobey again, in a different role."
