With only one month to go until Tom Holland’s superhero returns for a third standalone film, excitement over the forthcoming movie has been fuelled even more by the second trailer, as well as a brand new TV spot that debuted on Sunday (21 November).
It’s known that Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe), Doctor Octopus (Alfred Molina), Jamie Foxx’s Electro, Thomas Haden Church’s Sandman and Lizard (Rhys Ifans) will all appear thanks to the introduction of the multiverse.
However, both Garfield and Tobey Maguire, who played Spider-Man in Sam Raimi’s trilogy, were absent from the trailer despite fan speculation they filmed potential secret cameos in the film.
However, one moment has now convinced fans that Garfield will show up in one crucial moment.
Garfield appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man (2021) and its sequel, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014), in which he co-starred with Foxx.
In those films, Emma Stone played his love interest, Gwen Stacy, who plummets to her death in the second outing.
In the No Way Home trailer, that particular moment appears to be mirrored – only this time it’s MJ (Zendaya) who’s in danger. Many are now theorising that the Spider-Man who reaches out to save MJ in the trailer will actually turn out to be Garfield’s as opposed to Holland’s.
One fan predicted on Twitter that No Way Home will finally give Garfield’s Peter Parker “redemption”.
Another theory predicts that one of Peter’s closest allies will turn against him in the new film, completing fearsome group the Sinister Six.
Spider-Man: No Way Home will be released in the UK on 15 December – two days earlier than the US.
