Where Maguire and Garfield could be edited out of the No Way Home trailer
Spider-Man: The second trailer for No Way Home could very well hide Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire. Here’s where they could have been removed.
Spider-Man: No Path HomeTobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s second trailer could have been removed from the video. Anticipation is mounting for the upcoming release of the Marvel Studios and Sony collaboration film. Directed by Jon Watts, Tom Holland is reprising his role as MCU’s Peter Parker, but Spider-Man: No Path Home could also include past iterations of the wall-crawler.
Marketing for Spider-Man: No way home started quite late, with the first trailer not dropping until late August 2021. Yet she was surprisingly liberal with her revelations. In addition to confirming how the events of Spider-Man: Far From Home factor in the trio, he also set up his multiversal narrative. Desperate for help after his superhero identity was revealed, Peter Parker turns to Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) for help, but instead of making things better, the fake sorcerer spell has made matters worse. Apparently, he exposed the Earth to various multiversal threats, hence the appearance of Spider-man 2by Doc Ock (Alfred Molina). Now, Spider-Man: No Path HomeThe second trailer for expands on that, showing off other villains from other universes, including Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin and Jamie Foxx’s Electro.
So if the villains from previous Sony Spider-Man movies can appear in Spider-Man: No Path Home, how come their respective heroes don’t? Despite persistent rumors that Maguire and Garfield will be in the movie, they have yet to be revealed. But it is possible that they were in fact in the new Spider-Man: No Path Home trailer – just strategically edited. There are a few scenes in the clip where they could have been involved, including the final construction battle where Dutchman Peter fights five villains at the same time. There is a slow motion shot in the video where Spider-Man jumps towards Sandman (Thomas Haden Church). The visuals are cool, but it’s interesting that Lizard (Rhys Ifans) and Electro were also jumping forward; both attacking no one. Spider-Man: No Path Home the trailer could have easily tweaked Maguire and Garfield’s version of the web-slinger in that scene. If anything, Lizard even seems to be hit by something entirely invisible. That way, it’s actually a three-on-three battle. Looking at how it was shot, it could be a landmark scene in the movie, similar to the running set of the Avengers in Avengers: Age of Ultronopens.
It’s also possible that at least Garfield’s version of Spider-Man was involved in the MJ (Zendaya) fall scene. Seeing Holland’s Peter try to save her as she falls from the highest level of the building is certainly reminiscent of the emotional death of Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) in Marc Webb. The Incredible Spider-Man 2. But while the MCU couple was first filmed from a wide-angle shot, it was later cut close-up of their hands reaching out towards each other. While it makes sense for Holland’s Spider-Man to try to save his girlfriend, it’s also possible that Garfield’s iteration will come in to help as she brings up memories of his mistake in her own universe. As well as saving MJ, it allows Garfield’s Peter to redeem himself from this mistake that cost him Gwen. It would be an emotional moment that would benefit both future MCU storytelling, as well as, The Incredible Spider-Man 2the story of.
Marvel Studios is notorious for digitally altering the plans for its trailers in order to keep its secrecy. Some shots used in the promo clips don’t fit in the theatrical cut, while other footage is edited to remove a particular character or item. Sometimes they even shoot material just for promotional purposes. Knowing full well how important Maguire and Garfield’s involvement is Spider-Man: No Path Home, it’s likely that they ultimately decided to keep their cameos hidden until the film’s theatrical release.
