No Way Home Trailer Starring Maguire and Garfield Is What We Wanted Last Year
A new trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home features Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, who were notably absent from early marketing materials.
Marvel unveils a new trailer for Spider-Man: No Coming Home with Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. Spider-Man: No Coming Home was released last December and was incredibly successful for Sony, pleasing fans and critics alike and becoming the sixth highest-grossing film of all time. The film sees the return of Tom Holland’s Peter Parker, who seeks out Doctor Strange to make the world forget he’s Spider-Man. Of course, things don’t go as planned, causing Strange to fracture the multiverse and the villains of previous Spider-Man films into the Dutch dimension.
Maguire and Garfield’s return rumors began shortly after Alfred Molina and Jamie Foxx were announced to return as Doc Ock and Electro. The film’s marketing focused on the film’s villains, making fans excited to see the return of Doc Ock, Electro, the Lizard, Sandman, and the Green Goblin. Trailers and posters gave the impression that Holland’s Spidey would take on the five villains on his own, but it was still widely believed that Maguire and Garfield would make cameos. When Spider-Man: No Coming HomeThe Brazil trailer showed the Lizard being kicked by an unseen figure, it was speculated that Sony and Marvel removed two of the three Spider-Men to keep their return a surprise.
With Spider-Man: No Coming Home having released four months ago, it is well known that Maguire and Garfield have indeed returned for the sequel. However, a new trailer released on Spider ManThe official YouTube page to celebrate National Superhero Day shows what the MCU movie might have been marketed as if all three Spider-Man actors had been announced before the movie was released. Check out the trailer featuring Maguire, Garfield, and Holland below:
As mentioned above, Maguire and Garfield were to return in Spider-Man: No Coming Home, but there was no way of knowing what role they would have before the release. Luckily, they returned for more than just cameos and were an integral part of Holland’s fight against Green Goblin and the other villains of the multiverse. Previous Spider-Man movies have suffered from stuffing too many characters into one movie, which could have easily happened with Spider-Man: No Coming Home. However, Sony and Marvel managed to strike the right balance to keep the story centered around Dutchman Peter Parker.
Some may have enjoyed seeing Maguire and Garfield in the early trailers for Spider-Man: No Coming Home, but seeing them walk through Ned’s portals on the big screen made for a special cinematic experience. It’s been 14 years since Maguire dressed up as Spider-Man and eight years for Garfield, so watching them team up with Holland without official confirmation before release had many onlookers erupting in cheers. The studios had also already built up a ton of hype for Spider-Man: No Coming Home bringing back the villains of the past. So while seeing Maguire as Garfield in trailers would have been a welcome shock, it might be best if they saved them to promote the home release of Spider-Man: No Coming Home Instead.
