Tobey & Andrew Could Be Edited Out Of The No Way Home New Trailer

Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield may have been cut out of the second trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home. The excitement for the upcoming Marvel Studios and Sony partnership film is mounting. 

The first trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home didn’t come out until late August 2021; therefore marketing for the film started late. Nonetheless, it was unusually open in its disclosures. It established the multiverse plot as well as confirmed how the events of Spider-Man: Far From Home figure into the threequel.

Peter Parker (Benedict Cumberbatch) seeks help from Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) after his superhero identity is revealed; but instead of making things better, the sorcerer’s tainted spell makes matters worse. It appears to have exposed Earth to a variety of multiverse threats; as evidenced by Doc Ock’s (Alfred Molina) entrance in Spider-Man 2.

The second trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home extends on this by showing additional villains from various realities, such as Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin and Jamie Foxx’s Electro. So, if prior Sony Spider-Man villains may appear in Spider-Man: No Way Home; why couldn’t their respective heroes?

Despite frequent reports to the contrary, Maguire and Garfield have yet to be revealed. It’s possible, though; that they were there in the new Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer but were selectively taken out. They could have been involved in a few moments in the trailer; notably, the final construction struggle in which Holland’s Peter confronts five enemies at once.

The video includes a slow-motion picture of Spider-Man leaping towards Sandman (Thomas Haden Church). The images are impressive, but it’s worth noting that Lizard (Rhys Ifans) and Electro were both leaping forward; attacking no one.

In this scenario, the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer might easily have chopped out Maguire and Garfield’s versions of the web-slinger. Lizard appeared to have been struck by something completely unseen. It’s actually three-on-three combat this way.

It appears to be a highlight scene in the film, akin to the Avengers’ running shot at the start of Avengers: Age of Ultron. It’s also plausible that MJ’s (Zendaya) falling sequence involves at least Garfield’s rendition of Spider-Man. The tragic death of Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) in Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is reminiscent of Holland’s Peter trying to save her as she falls from the top level of the construction.
