The report also suggested returns for Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane Watson from the Maguire films by director Sam Raimi and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy from the Garfield films from director Marc Webb.
However, speaking to Esquire, Tom Holland denied that there would be returns for Maguire and Garfield, saying: "No, no, they will not be appearing in this film. Unless they have hidden the most massive piece of information from me, which I think is too big of a secret for them to keep from me.
"But as of yet, no. It’ll be a continuation of the Spider-Man movies that we've been making."
