After months of rumors, leaks, and speculation, three generations of Marvel moviegoers flocked to theaters in December 2021 to see Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Tom Holland unite on-screen in Spider-Man: No Way Home. The record-breaking event certainly fulfilled expectations as audiences were treated to a heart-warming dynamic between the Multiversal brothers while they teamed up in the lab and in the skies to take on five of their most frightening foes.
After seeing the two iconic Peter Parkers return for the first time in years, many are eager to see more from both Maguire and Garfield, with the latter proving to be the surprise standout among fans. In the months since No Way Home, calls to resurrect Andrew Garfield's The Amazing Spider-Man franchise have gone viral, and reports indicate Sony wants him back for more.
With the three Spider-Men back to swinging through their own respective universe, some have begun to wonder if or when they will meet again. The ending of No Way Home didn't do much to tease any further Multiverse crossovers, but newly-revealed footage has revealed it almost did.
No Way Home Deleted Scene Teases Spider-Men Reunion
The official Spider-Man: No Way Home bonus features offered a new look behind-the-scenes of the production including an alternate take of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield's final scene in the movie that would have teased their future return.
After Holland's Spider-Man gives his Multiverse counterparts - including a stab-wounded Maguire - a farewell hug, the final cut of the movie sees the MCU hero thank his fellow Peters before saying: "I guess I'll see you."
But in the alternate take found in the behind-the-scenes footage, two cut lines see Holland's Spider-Man imply he'll "see [them] later," before Garfield tells his MCU counterpart that he "[knows] where to find [them]:"
Holland's Spider-Man: "I'll see you later."
Garfield's Spider-Man: "You know where to find us."
Will Tobey and Andrew Return to the MCU?
Andrew Garfield has confirmed before that he improvised some of his No Way Home lines, including the adorable "I love you guys" moment. The significance of him telling Holland's Spider-Man he "[knows] where to find [them]" comes down to whether that line was improvised by Garfield, or if it came from the script itself.
The cryptic final interaction certainly seems to imply the three Spider-Men will meet again, but how long fans will be kept waiting is another question altogether. As much as many will be eager to see Maguire and Garfield reunite with Holland in the immediate future, their connection must remain a rare occurrence to stay special. But that's not to say the three heroes can't appear elsewhere separately.
Tom Holland looks set to lead a second trilogy of MCU Spider-Man outings, Tobey Maguire has been rumored to appear in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and Andrew Garfield could be a perfect wall-crawler for the Venom-verse.
But after the box office success of No Way Home, Sony will be eager to reunite the three generations once again, this time for a whole movie with a more upfront marketing campaign.
Sony is currently building its own cinematic universe of Spider-Man spin-off movies with characters like Kraven, Venom, and Morbius. Just like every major interconnected universe, there are no doubt plans for this to eventually build towards a grand-scale Avengers-esque crossover.
Whenever Sony does look to converge its spin-off franchises, perhaps they may also look to bring in the three Spider-Men once again to ramp up the scale even further. Once a Sinister Six has eventually been reached - likely consisting of Venom, Morbius, Kraven, Rhino, Sandman, and Vulture - they could be pitted against the Multiverse wall-crawlers for an epic face-off of the ages.
Perhaps their next appearance may not even be in live-action, but rather in a voiceover capacity for a cameo in the two-part Across the Spider-Verse animated adventure.
Whatever the future holds remains to be seen, but audiences can now enjoy Spider-Man: No Way Home from the comfort of their own homes as the movie is out now on digital platforms.
