Even when Sony tried to block leaked photos of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield in Spider-Man: No Way Home, they accidentally confirmed it.
It may just be the worst-kept secret in Hollywood at the moment.
It’s looking pretty obvious that both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will be suiting up once again as their respective versions of Spider-Man.
Moreover, they will make their return alongside Tom Holland in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Furthermore, the trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home confirmed that the multiverse will be playing a major part in its plot.
After all, they reveal that certain villains from early Spider-Man movies, such as Doctor Octopus, the Green Goblin, and Electro will return.
The original actors will reprise their roles.
There was no sight of any other Spider-Man other than Holland’s in the preview.
He’s not taking them on by himself, especially with Doctor Strange looking… strange.
It’s a no-brainer that Holland’s predecessors will definitely be making the jump from their own universes into the MCU.
Nevertheless, Sony has been to going to extreme lengths to keep their involvement in the movie hidden.
The results have been ineffective and comical.
Sony began immediately removing possible leaked set pictures of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield back in costume together.
Many believed they were fake.
However, a Reddit user called: u/Fire-Dragon15 managed to save the supposed leaked photos and posted them via his account.
The pictures are quite blurry, yes.
Still, you can clearly make out both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.
They’re together side-by-side on some scaffolding in the same Spidey suits we last saw them wearing in front of a blue background.
Some people have took to social media to shoot down these images as bogus.
They claimed that Tobey Maguire was edited into behind-the-scenes pictures of The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
But there’s something about that claim that doesn’t add up.
In one of the close-up pictures of Andrew Garfield you can see that his hair is much longer than what it was in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Sony Accidentally Confirms Tobey Maguire And Andrew Garfield By Blocking Leaks
He is now also sporting a small stubble, giving this leak more credibility.
Given how swiftly Sony took them down it proves they didn’t want these photos to spread.
It seems certain that Marvel and Sony are wanting to keep this under wraps for long as they possibly can.
It’s similar to how they revealed the first look at Holland as Spider-Man in the second trailer for Captain America: Civil War.
That sent the Marvel fanbase into a frenzy.
Pretty much every hardcore Spider-Man fan knows that they’ll see the three cinematic Spider-Men finally meet on screen.
However, there’s still many general moviegoers that have no idea just how big Marvel and Sony is intending the film to be.
Therefore, it makes sense for both studios wanting to keep this a surprise until closer to the film’s release date.
The mystery generates hype.
The first trailer beat Avengers: Endgame to become the most viewed trailer on the internet within 24 hours.
