The latest Hobbit rumor whirling around the internet is that Spider-Man may be hanging up his web for a bit, to star in Peter Jackson and Guillermo del Toro’s Hobbit. Is Tobey Maguire heading to the shire? UPDATE!
LatinoReview has a scoop that during The Brothers junket, Maguire was asked who he wanted to work with his answer was, Guillermo del Toro. Which he followed with:
"We may have something here in the near future."
