Is Tom Holland Wearing Tobey Maguire’s Suit In ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Trailer?

Spider-Man: No Way Home was already the most anticipated movie of the year, and after the long-awaited trailer finally dropped to record viewings, it is even more wanted by fans! Everyone has been dissecting the trailer, looking for clues as to what all we can expect and what rumors may be true or not. With it seemingly becoming more of a reality that we are getting a live action Spider-verse kind of film, fans want confirmation that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will indeed appear in the movie as their respective versions of the Wall Crawler. Now, some eagle-eyed fans may have found something that points to Maguire.

Shared on Twitter, a points out that during the scene on the bridge with the returning Alfred Molina as Doctor Octopus, Tom Holland is seen in a suit before his Iron Spider nanotech suit envelopes it. That suit actually has significance, as it is seemingly the same suit that Tobey wore in Spider-Man 3.

So, the idea is that Marvel is faking us out and replacing Maguire’s head with Holland’s for the trailer. He also thinks that, worse case scenario, that Tom Holland’s Spidey jumps into Maguire’s and Garfield’s universes and ends up replacing them, affecting eliminating the need for the previous actors. This is why the villains recognize Holland as their Peter Parker, because he replaced them.

There was also this catch by another fan, who also seems to think Marvel is trying to throw us off:

This is a fascinating theory and a cool little Easter Egg, except not everything on the suit is the same. As you can see below, one fan pointed out that the tie is different:

Also, Tobey Maguire’s version wouldn’t have the nanotech Spider-Man suit that comes on over said suit. However, if Maguire and/or Garfield had decided not to return for whatever reason, this theory gives Sony and Marvel an out that would eliminate the need for either or both actors.

Here’s another look at the suits:

Like we said though, this could all just be a trick by Marvel Studios to keep fans guessing – like they did with Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. We’ll just have to wait and see for sure when Spider-Man: No Way Home hits theaters on December 17th.
