After several weeks of speculation, Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures finally let us see all the villains that will have a presence in the feature film. That is: Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Electro, Sandman and Lizard. However, it is also true that a certain sector of the public was disappointed because there is no hint or reference to Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man… or is there?
As the hours have passed, some curious people have noticed a rather strange detail in the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer. As Tom Holland’s Spider-Man propels himself against the villains, it’s clear that his direction is pointed towards the Sandman, while Electro and Lizard don’t even pay attention to the arachnid’s movements. In fact, it looks like they’re both focused on other characters not featured in the scene. Three enemies against three heroes?
If the above doesn’t sound like enough, what comes next will leave you wondering. In an excerpt shared by Sony Pictures Brazil, you’ll see a brief sequence that doesn’t appear in the main trailer. You can see that Lizard, after launching himself “into the void,” is hit by something invisible. The fandom believes that Marvel Studios has erased Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man from the scene to save their appearance until next December 17.

Being honest, the theory is not far-fetched at all. Besides, on more than one occasion Marvel has altered the trailers of its feature films to hide key moments. With Avengers: Endgame it happened more than once, for example.
On the other hand, it was complicated for Marvel to give us a preview of such an epic event through a trailer. A meeting between Spider-Man from different universes could be one of the biggest events in the history of superhero movies, and they are not going to let us see it in a simple teaser. So we’d better be patient and wait for the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home.
