Tobey Maguire Considers Quitting Spider-Man Role

December 1, 2006 (8:12 am) GMT
Tobey Maguire is contemplating to give up his role as Spider-Man in the next installment of the franchise.

Probably "" will be the last time audience can see appear as the titular superhero. The dark-haired actor is reportedly in consideration to give up the coveted role in order to spend more time with his newborn daughter Ruby.

"This might be a good place to stop - I am not tied contractually to any more Spider-Man movies," so he said while confessing it would be a perfect time to retire from the hit franchise. "I am not completely closed to the idea of another one if it made sense but I would say the odds were in favour of this being the last one."

This is not the first time a star from the hit franchise revealed a thought to make a departure as Maguire's co-star previously admitted that she is keen to leave the series and takes up art instead, saying she is not "the type of actress who does movie after movie."
