The recent Sony Pictures hack revealed Marvel and Sony's plans of a third sequel for "The Amazing Spider-Man." However, producers made it clear that they'd want a fresh start for the movie, where it doesn't focus on the romance as the main story but to have it as a side-story instead. Ultimately, it would also mean a change of actor to play the title role aside from Andrew Garfield.
Currently scheduled for a U.S. release in 2018, "The Amazing Spider-Man 3" could probably look into five actors befitting the role. According to Comicbook's Russ Burlingame these possible candidates include "Star Trek" actor Anton Yelchin, "The Flash" star Robbie Amell, "Divergent" actor Ansel Elgort, "Ultimate Spider-Man" mainstay Drake Bell and lastly the original Peter Parker Tobey Maguire.
When Sony's Jeff Robinov told Amy Pascal that he wants "The Amazing Spider-Man 3" to be a clean slate and to start off with an aged Peter Parker, Burlingame thought why not bring back Tobey Maguire. Burlingame assumes having the actor to portray the role again after 20 years would "drive a ton of interest from casual fans." Likewise, it would supposedly be interesting to see if Maguire can still be compelling as the Spider-Man.

Know what? I wouldn't mind Tobey coming back. If anything, since they're synching things in to fit into the MCU, and since there's still a chance of them working out some sort of deal to bring Spider-Man into said MCU, I really wouldn't mind an older Spider-Man to help get Marvel out of the whole "he has to be eternally early-20s at most and not have real jobs or, y'know, a wife" mentality.

Are we doing some sort of universe splitting? You know, get them back and then sneak Garfield in and have their universes combine leaving a weird looking Paul Giamatti Rhyno suit charging while Dylan Baker finally gets to become the daggone Lizard.

Don Corleone I want my personal title back, but I don't know how!
Sony is pretty damn incompetent with how they are handling this series. One would think Spider-Man would be a pretty easy win with making movies about him, but they keep fumbling it. As much as I love Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2, going back to that cast would be a ridiculously stupid idea... Unless you're bringing in JK Simmons, then hand Raimi the cash and get to work... But seriously Sony, just give control to Disney and make some money without having to do anything.
