Arguably the worst kept secret in Hollywood right now is that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will return as their respective incarnations of Spider-Man in the most anticipated movie of all time, Spider-Man: No Way Home. While nothing official has confirmed their involvement, so damning leaks over the last year as well as the latest trailer (more specifically what’s missing from it) have fans convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt. And this all started a little over a year ago when Electro himself teased their involvement in the film. Now, over 12 months later, it would seem he is doing it again.
Last year, Jamie Foxx spoiled his return to the Spider-Man Universe by posting on Instagram his new take on his villainous role from The Amazing Spider-Man 2. He also posted a fan made live action Spider-verse poster showcasing three Wall Crawlers. This planted the seed for all of the speculation and theories that ultimately led to clout chasers freely leaking BTS photos to boost their own popularity, but ultimately spoil the surprise.
In Foxx’s latest post, many fans seem to think that he is spoiling the surprise once again with a very specific hashtag: #chasingspiders. It almost feels like Foxx has become the new Tom Holland of spoilers, just throwing whatever comes to mind out for the world to see, regardless of what it may spoil.

In all honesty, though, this one is a stretch. Saying ‘chasing spiders’ doesn’t necessarily mean multiple Spider-Men. Say “I’m chasing spider” (singular) out loud. Sounds ridiculous, right? The proper syntax here is to says ‘spiders’ even if it is just one. But fans are looking for anything right now to confirm their theories since Sony and Marvel are still trying to keep this news a secret.
This post is nowhere near as egregious as his post a year ago, but it is something for people to cling to as the closest thing to ‘official’ we have gotten recently of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield making a return. At this point, we won’t get anything official until the movie actually premieres in less than a month, so start counting down the days.
