The collective Marvel-loving world erupted with the release of the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer. The promise of a multiverse was heavily laden within the trailer and Spider-Man and Dr. Strange’s dialogue. Also, familiar Spider-Man villains from decades ago made their return. Green Goblin from 2002’s Spider-Man, Doc Ock from 2004’s Spider-Man 2, and Electro from 2014’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 all made their debuts. However, everyone was wondering where Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield were. Now, Marvel insider, Daniel Richtman has claimed that both Maguire and Garfield enter the film at around an hour and a half time.
If the multiverse has brought in multiple villains that have spanned the decades plus of Spider-Man films, why have Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield been left out? When the trailer first premiered, internet sleuths around the world began to notice that Lizard was being punched by a mysterious assailant. This led to the speculation that Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire had been edited out, so as not to ruin the surprise.
That is a very specific time, and could that mean that Richtman has seen an early cut of the film. Regardless of the speculated time, there is growing hope that both Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man iterations make their debut and fight alongside Tom Holland’s. The reported runtime of Spider-Man: No Way Home is 159 minutes. Two hours and 29 minutes make this the longest Spider-Man film ever made, and the second-longest Marvel film ever made, behind Avengers: Endgame (189 minutes).
With this stunning revelation made by Daniel Richtman, it would appear that both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will get their fair share of screen time as the film still has an hour left of runtime past their alleged hour and a half entering time. That is pretty exciting considering the number of villains that have already been shown in the trailer. That would mean that Marvel fans worldwide will finally be treated to the long-wished-for team-up of all three iterations of the film version of Spider-Man.
It would be a bit unfair to bring in villains from both the Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield Spider-Man films and not allow them to also come in and help save the city. At the very least, they should work as a team to instruct the new Peter Parker on how he can defeat them. There is no telling if there will be multiple versions of Mary Jane, but we can all hope for that. Nothing says Spider-Man like a Mary Jane in distress.
Tom Holland has also recently stated that he may not play Spider-Man again. If that is the case, then why not go for broke in this film? Seeing all film versions of Spider-Man together would be a perfect way to send Tom Holland into retirement while honoring his predecessors. Whether or not Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield needed their own send-off or not, it’s nice to know they will actually be getting it. One thing is for sure, there had better be a Spider-Man pointing at Spider-Man meme moment.
