Vulture-eyed fans think they've spotted invisible Spider-Men in latest 'No Way Home' trailer
We think Andrew Garfield doth protest too much.
We think Andrew Garfield doth protest too much. Despite the actor's numerous protestations that his version of Peter Parker will not appear in next month's Spider-Man: No Way Home, sharp-eyed Marvel fans think they have him beat.
Dissecting a Brazilian version of the movie's new trailer (one that seems to have been taken down since last night), viewers pinpointed a moment where Rhys Ifans' Lizard (first introduced in The Amazing Spider-Man) is punched in mid-air by some unseen force (prompting one Twitter user to make an Avengers reference).
This has led to widespread speculation that the climactic battle sequence — which also features Electro (Jamie Foxx from The Amazing Spider-Man 2) and Sandman (Thomas Haden Church from Spider-Man 3) — will involve Tom Holland fighting alongside Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.
It's a solid theory, especially since the shot we see in the trailer has a lot of empty space as Holland's current iteration of the friendly neighborhood web-slinger dives into the fray against several rogues. Several people have postulated that Andrew's Peter will be the one to swoop in and save a falling MJ (Zendaya) in order to redeem himself after Gwen Stacy's death in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Twitter user Alex Montes put it best, though: "I know everyone is dying to see Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield as am I but it's great they haven’t shown them. The two GOATs with Tom should be experienced in the theaters not spoiled or wasted like nothing. Showcasing the classic villains is awesome enough!"
In any case, this latest batch of footage essentially confirms the formation of the Sinister Six, though we're betting that corny title won't ever be uttered out loud (just look how Peter, MJ, and Ned reacted to hearing Dock Ock's real name). Alfred Molina and Willem Dafoe are both back as the two Big Bads of the Sam Raimi era. There's even a fleeting shot of what could be Spider-Man 3's New Goblin, but like we mentioned in our trailer story, that could either be Harry Osborn or Ned Leeds. The only one missing is Michael Keaton's Vulture, who, unlike other Spidey antagonists, did not die in battle against Peter Parker. Though Mysterio died, so who knows, could he be back, too? Or does this only apply to alt-universe baddies?
Spider-Man: No Way Home hits the big screen exactly one month from today (Friday, Dec. 17). Click here for our breakdown of the official trailer, which premiered during a Los Angeles fan event attended by SYFY WIRE Tuesday evening. It then arrived on the Sony Pictures YouTube channel, racking up over a million views in less than 10 minutes. Yes, we checked.
