Tom Holland wants a live-action 'Spider-verse' with Andrew Garfield and Toby Maguire

Tom Holland isn't exactly best known for keeping secrets, so seeing him try his best not to spoil the massive Marvel blockbusters he's starring in while on the press circuit can be pretty entertaining.

The actor is currently promoting the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home, where he returns to the role alongside the new addition of Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio.

Here's the trailer for the upcoming flick:

Now that the eventful Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame movies have come and gone, the 23-year-old has less to worry about spoiling. Once Far From Home hits theatres, he'll have even less to worry about - but that doesn't mean everyone's not keen to find out what's planned for the character further down the road.

After the huge success of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse last year, audiences are coming around to the (very comic-booky) idea of a multiverse with various versions of the same character. If Miles Morales can meet Spider-Ham, then why can't some of the live action interpretations of the popular superhero cross over somehow?

It might sound like a pipe dream for those who miss Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield's Spider-Men, but given the fact that Disney are practically printing money at the moment, there's always the chance it could happen.

The possibility of this team-up was put to Holland in an interview recently, in which the actor quickly turned quiet, trying his best not to say the wrong thing (as usual).

Along with his Far From Home co-stars, Holland played it cool but agreed that the idea of bringing Maguire and Garfield back into the mix would be an interesting one. "Of course I would love to make a movie with those guys, it would be so cool!" Holland told host Jake Hamilton.

"It would be amazing, it would be really, really cool. And it's something that the fans really want. So whether Marvel and Sony decided to do that, it's up to them. It's not up to me, I can't walk in like 'Kevin [Feige], this is what we're doing on the next one.' But it would be really awesome."

Whether it can happen is up in the air - as is the future of this version of the webslinger. Marvel Studios are currently making the Spider-Man movies after striking a deal with Sony (following the box office disappointment of The Amazing Spider-Man 2), but there's only one film left in that contract after Far From Home.

They may re-up and keep Spidey around in the MCU for longer, but it's hard to tell at this point. Either way, it sounds like Holland is into the idea of meeting his predecessors.

Spider-Man: Far From Home premieres on July 2.
