Tobey Maguire, from Spiderman to playing Charlie Chaplin

Tobey Maguire has returned to the world of acting in grand style. After many years without seeing him in major projects, specifically since ‘Spiderman 3’ (2007), the 46-year-old American actor is now experiencing a second lease of life, especially since his appearance in the latest Spider-Man film, ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home‘.

Today, after the recent sabbatical announcements by his fellow Spidermen, Tom Holland and Andrew Garfield, the actor seems to be the only Spiderman left standing at the moment in Hollywood, giving him the opportunity to participate in new and exciting projects.

So much so that Damien Chazelle, director of great works such as ‘La La Land’, has just signed him to be one of the stars of a project called ‘Babylon’, which is presented as a kind of tribute to the golden age of Hollywood. At least the first one, which for many is set in the time when cinema went from being silent to having sound.

In the film, Tobey Maguire will play the one, the only, the eternal and the unique Charlie Chaplin.

Babylon: Film release date and rest of the cast

The film is scheduled for release on 25 December 2022, coinciding with Christmas Day. As far as trailers go, we haven’t seen any yet, at least not that have been released online. However, CinemaCon attendees were able to see a preview of the project this Thursday, in which, incidentally, more of the cast chosen by Chazelle were revealed.

As in ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie will once again play iconic Hollywood characters, although this time in the early 20th century, John Gilbert and Clara Bow, respectively.

Sam Raimi won’t rule out making ‘Spider-Man 4’ with Tobey Maguire

As we said at the beginning of this news, Maguire is on a roll, so much so that in recent days we have heard some interesting statements from Sam Raimi, director of the original ‘Spiderman’ trilogy, in which the filmmaker does not rule out making a new film in Tobey Maguire‘s narrative universe.

In them, Raimi assured that the new plot of the multiverse presented by Marvel in its latest titles offered endless possibilities, including the cinematic revival of the first great Spider-Man.

Likewise, the director would ultimately say that ‘Spiderman 4’ would also serve as an apology to the fans for the failures committed in the third part of his trilogy, which was highly condemned at the time by audiences and specialists of the cinematic art
