In the foreseeable future, MCU fans will have the opportunity to enjoy the hit blockbuster Spider-Man: No Way Home from the comfort of their homes. With this release coming, Marvel and Sony are restarting the movie's promotional tour by featuring some of the film's biggest and best moments. And just like it was before the movie, it hasn't included Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man.
This movie became arguably the biggest crossover event since Avengers: Endgame upon its release, largely due to Maguire and Garfield's inclusion.
Thanks to more than a year's worth of leaks and rumors, fans were well aware of No Way Home's villains, bringing back memorable names like Alfred Molina and Jamie Foxx. However, Sony's marketing team did their best to keep Maguire and Garfield's returns under wraps to make sure they made the biggest impact possible when they showed up - and it delivered.
Nearly three months after its release, and after earning more than $1.8 billion at the global box office, Maguire and Garfield have cemented their MCU legacy by way of the Multiverse. Now, with only a couple of official looks at their heroes out in the world thus far, both made their first appearances in a trailer for the threequel's home release.
Tobey and Andrew Shine in No Way Home Promo
New TV spots for Spider-Man: No Way Home officially showed footage of Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man for the first time.
After Garfield's Spider-Man enters Ned's apartment, the scene continues when MJ throws a piece of bread at Garfield while trying to get him to prove he's Peter Parker. Thinking on her feet, MJ does this after Garfield admits he doesn't carry an I.D. on him:
MJ: "Prove it."
Garfield's Spider-Man: "Prove what?"
MJ: "That you’re Peter Parker."
Garfield's Spider-Man: "I don’t carry an I.D. with me. You know, it kind of defeats the whole 'anonymous superhero' thing."
Referencing Tom Holland's Spidey-sense, MJ used the bread to find out if Garfield had the same skill, which brought a sense of utter confusion from the Multiversal visitor:
Garfield's Spider-Man: "Why'd you do that?"
MJ: "I was trying to see if you have the tingle thing."
Garfield's Spider-Man: "I have the tingle thing, just not for bread."
The footage pushes forward to the final battle as all three Spider-Men are working through their issues in the scaffolding around the Statue of Liberty. As they admit to their struggles working together, Holland's Spidey references his time with the Avengers:
Holland's Spider-Man: "Well, I do! I have been in a team, okay? I don’t want to brag, but I will... I was in The Avengers."
Maguire's Spider-Man: "The Avengers?!"
Holland's Spider-Man: "Yeah."
Maguire's Spider-Man: "That’s great!"
Holland's Spider-Man "Thank you."
Maguire's Spider-Man: "What is that?"
Confused about what the Avengers are, Garfield's Spidey wonders if the group is a band that Holland's hero was in after revealing that they don't exist in his or Maguire's universes:
Holland's Spider-Man: "Wait. You don’t have The Avengers?"
Garfield's Spider-Man: "Is that a band? Are you in a band?"
After coming up with a plan of attack, the three web-slingers leap into the air together, hooting and hollering as they swing off the scaffolding and into battle. This comes before the iconic shot of all three landing on Lady Liberty's head.
Garfield's Spider-Man stands in front of Max Dillon after draining the electricity out of Foxx's villain. The two speak about the possibility of a Black Spider-Man somewhere in the universe as they speak peacefully for the first time since The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Electro: "You gotta nice face. You just a kid. You from Queens. You got that suit. You help a lot of poor people. I just thought you was gonna be Black."
Garfield's Spider-Man: "Oh man, I’m sorry."
Electro: "No, no, don’t apologize. There’s gotta be a Black Spider-Man somewhere out there."
The last chronological shot features Maguire's Spider-Man removing his mask as he reunites with Alfred Molina's Doctor Octopus. Maguire's hero sees his mentor for the first time in nearly 20 years as the two share an emotional moment with each other.
Doctor Octopus: "You’re all grown up. How are you?"
Maguire's Spider-Man: "Trying to do better."
The second of the new spots can be seen below:
Peter 2 and Peter 3 Shown in Promo Footage
With Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield's appearances in No Way Home having been such a big secret, the time has come to finally celebrate the two Multiversal Spider-Men coming into the MCU.
Both Maguire and Garfield helped drive the threequel's third act as they teamed up with Holland's Peter, Ned, and MJ to take down their universes' villains on Liberty Island. The scenes shown in this footage brought back some of their most memorable moments on screen as they learned about Doctor Strange's magic and the Avengers.
For two characters that couldn't be a part of No Way Home's initial marketing campaign, the promos for the film's home release can make up for that lack of material.
Now, with no fear of anything being spoiled, Sony and Marvel are celebrating Maguire and Garfield's roles that held so much significance to the story in No Way Home. Whether either of them will return in the future is unknown, but for now, their most recent accomplishments are ones to be celebrated as the biggest Spider-Man movie ever comes to fans' homes.
Spider-Man: No Way Home will be available on digital release on March 22, and its Blu-ray disc will arrive on April 12.
