Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield Teased by Paramount: Spider-Man 3

obey Maguire and Andrew Garfield are back for Spider-Man 3 which oddly enough is teased by Paramount. Paramount Network Spain posted the following tweet that offers (translated): "Marvel gives you his Christmas gift. It is a box that, if you open it, all three appear Spider-Man of the 21st century in the same film." This is the second time that a Spider-Man 3 "Spider-Verse" has been teased by a foreign media source, as Sony Channel Latinoamérica previously posted a video teasing Spider-Man 3. It almost seems as if "everyone" knows that Spider-Man 3 will be a Spider-Verse Multiverse flick featuring Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, just that it hasn't been announced, which, if the above tweet is anything to go by, maybe a big announcement will come on Christmas Day.
