The second Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer removed Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield in a last-minute change.
However, their ghosts still exist.
Indeed, the trailer was spectacular.
Certainly, Tom Holland fighting earlier villains like Doctor Octopus, the Green Goblin, and Electro dazzled audiences.
But there were missing pieces.
In particular, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield were AWOL.
According to insiders, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige felt it gave away too much.
Specifically, one scene troubled Feige.
The following contains potential spoilers; stop now if you’d rather not know.
In the trailer, MJ (Zendaya) is seen falling to her death.
Nevertheless, it looks like Holland will save her.
On one hand, it’s a homage to “The Night Gwen Stacy Died” story arc from the comic books.
What All Was Removed Out Of The New Trailer?
In the same way, it’s an echo from 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
In that film, Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) fails to save Stacy (Emma Stone).
Consequently, she dies.
First of all, Feige didn’t want Sony to reveal neither Tobey Maguire nor Andrew Garfield in the movie.
While it may be true many fans know this, the general public largely does not.
Sources reveal that, by showing Andrew Garfield in the trailer, folks would figure out how that ends.
In other words, Andrew Garfield saves Zendaya.
Although Sony is in charge of marketing, Feige is protective of his film.
With a short window until the fan event, both actors were taken out.
Given the brief advance notice, the new Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer delivered some awkward editing.
In the Brazilian version, Holland jumps at a trio of villains.
One of them, the Lizard, is punched by an unseen figure.

That was Andrew Garfield.
In addition, Electro (Jamie Foxx) faces an invisible man above Holland.
It’s Tobey Maguire.
Sony cut the knocked-out Lizard from the U.S. edition.
But it remains in Sony Pictures Brasil.
LOL, Sony, LOL.
Two Spider-Men Remove From Spider-Man: NWH Trailer
Sony promised “big surprises” at the fan event on Tuesday; originally, there were two of them.
Insiders add that Sony still wants to announce Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
On the contrary, I’m now not fully sure if Feige will give in.
Certainly, it’s possible.
In fact, on August 25, 2021, I scooped that the three Spider-Mans won’t appear until the third trailer.
Well, if Sony doesn’t leak it first.
