An alternate final scene featuring all three Spider-Men in Spider-Man: No Way Home effectively prepares Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire’s MCU return.
Warning: Spoiler ahead for Spider-Man: There is no way to go home
An alternative cut of Spider-Man: There is no way to go homeAndrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire’s finale returns to the MCU. Fans haven’t stopped talking about the film since its theatrical release in December 2021, and There is no way to go homeThe recent digital version of only served to fuel the conversation further. Both Garfield and Maguire reprized their roles as Spider-Man for the Sony / Marvel Studios crossover, teaming up with Tom Holland’s Peter Parker as they navigated the perils of the multiverse to bring a series of villains back to their respective timelines. Even if the trio eventually broke up, there could be a chance they’ll get back together moving forward.
Even before the third installment of the Spider-Man MCU got its official title in early 2021, rumors were already circulating that Marvel Studios and Sony were looking to bring back Garfield and Maguire. The fact that the MCU initiated the process of creating its multiverse further convinced fans that there was merit in the claims, despite repeated denials from those involved in the project. Eventually, however, it was confirmed that Sam Raimi and Marc Webb’s respective wall crawlers were indeed in the film when Spider-Man: There is no way to go home hit theaters.
Despite multiple leaks and lingering rumors, it hasn’t diminished the impact of seeing Holland, Maguire and Garfield together on the big screen. Among all the moving pieces inside Spider-Man: There is no way to go home, director Jon Watts made sure to get the most out of what seemed like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to bring all three actors together. However, a deleted scene from the trequel suggests that Maguire and Garfield may return to the MCU in the future. In the scene, the trio say their final goodbyes and Holland jokes, “We will see each other”. Garfield then fold back, “You know where to find us.” This effectively establishes that Holland is able to contact Garfield and Maguire at any point, leaving the door open for a reunion at some point in the future.
It won’t be easy, however. As the fans know, Spider-Man: There is no way to go home ended with the ultimate sacrifice for Dutchman Peter. When the multiverse threatened to collapse, he gave Dr. Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) the green light to cast a spell that would essentially strip him of his identity. At this point, no one remembers him as Peter Parker, isolating the character from the people he loves the most. The details of the spell aren’t clear yet, but it’s possible that Maguire and Garfield, who have since returned to their timelines, don’t remember Holland and the time they spent together. But if Spider-Man: There is no way to go homeDoctor Strange’s script is indicative, there may be a loophole in Doctor Strange’s spell that could turn the whole situation around.
As for Maguire and Garfield, now that their existence has been consolidated in the MCU multiverse, Marvel Studios and Sony may decide to bring them back for future stories, especially considering the success of Spider-Man: There is no way to go home. Fans have been clamoring for the long-awaited Andrew Garfield The Incredible Spider-Man 3and Maguire returning to Sam Raimi’s universe as a much older and veteran Spider-Man also lends itself to many unique storytelling opportunities. For now, fans will simply have to wait and see if the famous Spider-Men will reunite once again within the multiverse.
