Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield were conspicuously missing from the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer.
Although neither Sony nor Marvel Studios ever confirmed they cast the actors, every Spider-Man fan knows.
In fact, since I was the first one to scoop them on October 2019.
Most recently, on August 22, I reported that neither Andrew Garfield nor Tobey Maguire were in the initial trailer.
Where are they?
Sony is responsible for the trailer and the overall marketing.
However, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has some say in what’s shown.
Apparently, Feige didn’t want Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield revealed yet.
To the general public, seeing Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus was quite a shock.
Nevertheless, trailers are cut for mainstream audiences as well as active followers who often visit sites such as Geekosity for advance information.
There are millions of people who are completely unaware that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield are returning as well.
After all, Twitter is not the world.
Insiders reveal that the current plan is to feature Andrew Garfield in the second trailer.
Moreover, Jamie Foxx’s villain Electro will be seen along with him.
Andrew Garfield and Foxx battled each other in 2014’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Now The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was not set in the MCU; this was Sony still flying solo.
Feige’s creative vision was nowhere in that film.
Sources explain that this is a much-improved Electro than the one in that critically bashed sequel.
That leaves Tobey Maguire.
Which Spider-Man Trailers Tobey Maguire And Andrew Garfield Appear In Revealed
I am told Tobey Maguire will be saved for the final trailer, released closer to opening day.
An insider revealed:
It has the money shot. Tom Holland’s Spider-Man fighting the Sinister Six alongside his predecessors, Maguire and Garfield.
In fact, there is a scene in the first trailer with Tobey Maguire slyly edited out.
When Molina says, “Hello, Peter,” he is actually speaking to Tobey Maguire, not Holland.
Like 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, the movie will juggle multiple characters.
Nevertheless, it’ll have a heavy emotional focus and darker subtext, I am told.
Sources add that the buzz around Spider-Man: No Way Home at Marvel Studios is that it resembles an Avengers movie in scope.
The biggest difference is the spotlight on Holland’s Peter Parker.
Regardless of the massive action sequences and reality warping, Holland is the beating heart of the film.
