The Marvel Cinematic Universe exploded in Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021), blowing away every Marvel fan with the exclusion of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s Marvel characters. With their MCU future bright, fans are dying to have the duo appear again, and new photos from the set of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022) strangely suggest that Tobey Maguire could swing into the movie.

Stepping through that portal in Marvel’s New York ushered in a new era of the Marvel Collection, introducing the live-action Spider-Verse to record-breaking box office numbers.

Now with rumors of multiple upcoming Marvel projects featuring the “Spider-Men,” a new photo seemingly confirms Tobey Maguire’s fate in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness:

As always, let’s take this information with a light grain of salt. Nonetheless, this behind-the-scenes photo from Mariana Torres, Portuguese dubbing voice for Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff/Scarlett Witch, shared the selfie with Tobey Maguire’s Portuguese dubbing voice actor Manolo Rey.

So what’s the big deal here? Besides Manolo Rey sporting a Spider-Man: No Way Home t-shirt that features Tobey Maguire’s respective Marvel character, Mariana Torres wrote, “Good things are coming,” in the Multiverse of Madness.

Hold the phone now. Didn’t Manolo Rey do his voice dubbing work for Tobey Maguire in November of 2021 — a month before No Way Home hit theaters? Why would he complete his next Marvel adventure months before Doctor Strange debuts?

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness just completed a historic reshoot with multiple actors who were reportedly unavailable for principal photography in early to mid-2021. Marvel star Benedict Cumberbatch revealed that he was working six out of the seven days of a week for the new Doctor Strange filming. Given that Marvel alum Sam Raimi is directing this feature film, it’s all the more possible that Tobey Maguire was a part of these reshoots.

Reshoots only wrapped two weeks ago, so Marvel is in high gear re-editing the final film and including new voice dubbing work for multiple formats of the Marvel movie.
