Spider-Man 3 featured a controversial decision that divided fans, and this choice was at the behest of Tobey Maguire himself - learn more.
Spider-Man 3 explores the multiverse, and Marvel and Sony took this opportunity to realize the
biggest dream of the hero's fans: the epic meeting between the three movie versions, lived by Tom, Tobey and Andrew.
According to reports at the time, it was an almost impossible task to reunite the three actors, especially on account
of Tobey Maguire, who had a delicate negotiation with Sony, in which he ended up demanding a higher salary than expected.
And although all versions have great scenes in the film, a big rumor circulating around Spider-Man 3 ended up not proving
to be true: that there would be scenes with Tobey and Andrew Garfield's variants in their respective universes.
According to the rumor, these scenes would reveal more of the two characters' lives after their last films. The film
does not feature any such scenes, but according to screenwriters Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, this was a choice made by Tobey Maguire himself.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the screenwriters revealed that it was Tobey's choice to reveal as little as possible about
Peter's life after 2007's Spider-Man 3. The star wanted the audience not to have so many answers about what happened to the character after the last time we saw him.
