Last week, we learned that Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios were planning to reunite Tom Holland's Peter Parker, Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, as well as Miles Morales (Spider-Man: Next Generation) in the Spider-Man 3 movie. Today, a source close to the studios reveals that the character played by Tobey Maguire will have a son in the MCU.

In the comics, Spider-Man has had multiple sons. Given that the MCU's will be the child of Maguire's Peter Parker, it is highly likely to be the son met in the Spider-Verse series, in which Peter Parker and Mary Jane give birth to a baby Benjy. In Sam Raimi's trilogy, Peter's uncle is one of the red threads of the plot. The name Benjy being a tribute to the late Benjamin Parker, it would therefore not be surprising that the son chosen for Maguire is indeed that of Spider-Verse.
The presence of this child would confirm that Peter and Mary Jane did indeed get over their difficult time in 2007 Spider-Man 3. Corrupted by the symbiote, Parker had seriously damaged their relationship, unwittingly pushing MJ into Harry's arms . But the couple seemed on the road to reconciliation in the film's final scene, which showed Peter and Mary Jane dancing. It would also mean that actress Kirsten Dunst would make a comeback as well.
The Spider-Verse Is Confirmed
At this time, it is unclear whether this son will be introduced in Spider-Man 3, or in another upcoming feature filmof the franchise. Much seems to be brewing for Spider-Man, and there are more and more clues about making a Spider-Verse adapted movie. Sony said information regarding the Peter Parker's return from the first two trilogies was not confirmed, but the studio did not deny the rumors either.
Spider-Man 3 will in any case welcome Electro, villain played by Jamie Foxx in the films with Andrew Garfield . Spider-Man will be further helped by an expert multiverse mentor, since the Peter ParTom Holland's ker will have Doctor Strange as his new mentor. This potential big reunion will be delayed, however. Spider-Man 3 is currently scheduled for release in December 2021 , but delays are piling up on Marvel and Sony's calendars. In these uncertain times for Hollywood, no release date is really definitive.
