Spidey fans think that they have spotted one of the other Spider-Men in the new trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home which was released yesterday.
There a quite a few moments in the trailer that seem to hint at other Spider-Men being featured in the film. You know, besides the fact that all of their villains are being featured in the film.
One moment, in particular, is when we see a shot of Zendaya’s MJ falling and Spider-Man trying to save her. However, when we get a close-up shot of his hand it looks suspiciously like Andrew Garfield’s Amazing Spider-Man costume.
Now, as to why Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man would be the one to save MJ is a mystery. This seems like a moment they would want to save for Tom Holland. However, the scene does seem very reminiscent of the scene in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 where Gwen Stacy is falling down the clocktower, so it is definitely possible.
While it does seem silly to deeply analyze a half-second clip of a hand, there are quite a few other instances where it seems that the other Spider-Men have accidentally made their way into the trailer.
Other Hints at Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield in the Spider-Man: No Way Home Trailer
Another point in the trailer where it seems that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield have been edited out is the wide shot with many of the villains. The way the shot is framed, it seems like there should be someone else going after Electro and the Lizard as Holland’s Spidey seems to only be going after Sandman.
Some other damning evidence is in the Brazilian trailer, where there is an extended version of this shot where the Lizard seems to be punched by nothing. It could be the boards that Sandman broke while attacking Holland’s Spider-Man, however the Lizard still seems to be jumping at nobody.
It would also just be weird for them to intentionally include a shot where the Lizard gets decked by a 2×4 thanks to Sandman’s recklessness. While it would be comical if this was the case, it seems quite unlikely.
There is another less than a second moment in the trailer where we see Spider-Man swinging, however, that doesn’t look to be Holland’s Spider-Man. Especially not with the suits that we have seen in the trailer.
The eyes on the mask look much more like Tobey Maguire’s costume from the Sam Raimi trilogy of films. Although this also could be Andrew Garfield’s version of the character as his costume in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 also sported the larger eyes.
Of course, all of this is still speculatory however it is starting to seem more and more likely that we will finally see Maguire, Garfield, and Holland unite on the big screen in just a few short weeks!
