Tobey Maguire Waves Goodbye to "Spider-Man"

by | March 6, 2007 | Comments

It’s a pretty safe bet that (eventually) there will be some more "Spider-Man" sequels, but it doesn’t look like those supervillains will have Tobey Maguire to kick around any more.

You know how actors sometimes get that "two sequel deal" for a big tentpole movie? Yeah, just like Tobey Maguire did for his (really solid) work in the "Spider-Man" movies. Well, producers do that for a bunch of reasons, two of which are: 1. To keep the actors locked in at a "reasonable" price, and 2. To hire new (cheaper) actors when that price gets too high. So it comes as no surprise that Mr. Maguire is presently singing the No More Spider for Me tune.

"To me it seems like this is a natural point for the team to break up because we have a lot of story conclusions that were going along for the main characters for the first two movies and we kind of tie almost everything up for the third movie," is what he told an Australian newspaper, as well as "It feels like a trilogy to me and it feels like the end."

Well. I guess that’s that. "Spider-Man 3" opens on May 4th.
