Spider-Man Fans Spotted Tobey Maguire Reference In Holland’s Attire

With Spider-Man: No Way Home approaching its launch date, emerging evidence suggests that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield may revisit respective Peter Parker characters in a real-time Spider-Verse squad.

Tom Holland’s superhero would need all the aid he could get to fight on a Sinister Six from outside the infinite universe, with most of the two heroes’ villain ensemble expected to return to wreck chaos for the MCU’s Spider-Man.

Since Sony manages to sidestep such elements in its promotional campaign, Maguire and Garfield’s comeback appears to be near guaranteed, thanks to rumoured leaked photographs, cryptic product listings, and unintentional slip-ups from many stars.

Tom Holland has been the lone Spider-Man in the initial teaser for No Way Home, much to the dismay of several fans. That hasn’t prevented the company from creating a subtle nod to Tobey Maguire’s Peter Parker – but is it a mistake or a concealed tease?

Tobey Maguire Attire In No Way Home

Tom Holland’s Peter Parker is shown in numerous moments in the first teaser of Spider-Man: No Way Home sporting a grey suit that seems eerily similar to Tobey Maguire’s costume in Spider-Man 3.

In a relatively gloomy image, the wall-crawler is first caught donning the suit, after which he has been assaulted from behind by Lizard.

After the appearance of Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock, Peter Parker could be seen once more in the Maguire-esque gear in the last minutes of the teaser as he equips up with his Iron Spiderman suit.

Tom Holland appears in a variety of costumes across the trailer, implying that these two scenes take place close simultaneously. Except for a school dance and Tony Stark’s funeral, Peter Parker has rarely been in a suit on-screen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, leading some to wonder what the celebration here is.

Possible Theories for this Easter Egg

The Easter egg in the Spider-Man teaser is certainly intended. Because Marvel understands how much its fans scrutinise its trailers frame by frame, putting that particular clothing on Holland is a direct nod to Maguire’s character.

Even though Marvel hasn’t announced that Maguire would feature in the film, set photos and speculations have stoked curiosity. Marvel monitors fan talk on social media to ensure that supporters are aware of any plans regarding Maguire. Marvel is most likely winking to the audience with the attire, hinting that Maguire will appear at some point.

In the trailer, there could be some deception. Doc Ock is unaware that Holland’s character is Peter Parker because he is from a different Spider-Man universe. As a result, Molina may be conversing with Maguire in the scene. The editing method would be nothing new for Marvel, which is infamous for rearranging scenes in trailers to disguise narrative aspects. Marvel also frequently used face-changing technology in its films.

As a result, Spider-Man may be dressed in Maguire’s attire because Maguire is present in the scene. Due to Marvel’s history of editing gimmicks, a deepfake of Holland’s face might be used to mask Maguire’s comeback in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
