Why Would It Be Great If Garfield and Maguire Didn’t Appear in NWH?

Why should Garfield & Maguire not appear in Spider-Man: No Way Home

The absence of Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire from Spider-Man: No Way Home may be beneficial to the film. Only a few months remain until Marvel Studios and Sony’s collaborative picture, starring Tom Holland, hits theatres. The threequel, directed by Jon Watts, is one of the most anticipated films of the year, as seen by its record-breaking first teaser, which has become the most-watched trailer in 24 hours, surpassing Avengers: Endgame.

What else is included in the film, in contrast to the previous two Spider-Men:

There’s a lot to get thrilled about in Spider-Man: No Way Home. The plot takes up after the events of Spider-Man: Far From Home, with Mysterio’s (Jake Gyllenhaal) spiteful dying confession. The revelation of Spider-Man’s identity, as well as allegations that he is responsible for Quentin Beck’s death, makes Peter Parker unhappy. It’s also an excellent introduction to Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch). In terms of villains, Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock is the only one that physically appears in the teaser, although glimpses of Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin and Jamie Foxx’s Electro are also sprinkled throughout.

Eventually, the biggest thing fans are waiting for in NWH:

The possible cameos of Garfield and Maguire, though, are arguably the most talked-about aspect of Spider-Man: No Way Home. Unfortunately, as wonderful as this potential seems, there is a catch. The prospect of past incarnations of the web-slinging hero being engaged in the future MCU story is obviously exciting. After all, despite their individual franchises’ flaws, their depictions are largely liked. However, the hype around his predecessors reprising their old Marvel roles is detracting from Holland’s Peter Parker. The prevailing consensus regarding the film has been whether or not Maguire and Garfield will appear in it, and if so, in what capacity. The supposed leaked photograph of Garfield’s onset has also become a hot subject, so much so that the actor was asked about it.

Apart from the movie being about the multiverse, there was another plot:

To be sure, Spider-Man: Far From Home laid the stage for a very different Spider-Man 3. Before the threequel was announced to be dealing with a multiversal story, there was speculation that it would finally show Peter truly coming to terms with his identity in the MCU, especially because his journey in the franchise so far has been linked to his connection with Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.). Now that the forthcoming film appears to be dealing with a far more intricate plot, there’s already a risk of losing sight of the web-personal slinger’s journey. Yes, Spider-Man: No Way Home could still serve as a vehicle for Holland’s rendition of the character as he battles the Sinister Six. However, given Garfield and Maguire’s presence, it’s probable that the pre-and post-release discussion will be on them rather than on MCU Spider-Man.

What are the ongoing conversations regarding NWM?

What makes this even more risky is that existing discussions are typically centred on the assumption that former Spider-Man actors would play important roles in the picture. At this time, no one knows the extent to which they will be involved (if at all). Even if Spider-Man: No Way Home’s narrative is conceptually sound in terms of Peter’s development in the MCU, there may be reaction or disappointment if Garfield and Maguire’s appearances fall short of expectations.
