Spider-Man: Why Tobey Maguire And Andrew Garfield’s Universes Had No Avengers

Unlike Peter Parker played by Tom Holland, whose career began when he joined “The Avengers,” the universes of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield never had their own Avengers. This is how in “Spider-Man: No Way Home“You can see the early Peter Parkers having no idea what these heroes are.

While superhero comics exist in the universe of Tobey Maguire, he never had a chance to join one during his web career. In the tapes from 2002 to 2007, which follow the Parker de Tobey, you can see their fight against Green Goblin, Doc Ock, Sandman y Venom, being three of them who appear in “No Way Home”.

On the other hand, in the version of Sony played by Andrew Garfield in 2012 and 2014, he faced a similar variety of villains; although unlike Holland’s version, both fought alone. The “Spider-Man 2” from Sam Raimi had to Doctor Strange like a hero, but that was it. While there were others, the Maguire and Garfield characters never had any contact.

The main reason the universes of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield they never had Avengers is that Sony didn’t have the rights to them. It was in 1999 when they acquired the franchise, but back then “The Avengers” y MCU they were more than a decade apart.

On the other hand, Sony only owned the characters of Spider-Man de MarvelSo including other comic book heroes could have caused a legal mess. The production company was not allowed to include the Avengers, as they had not yet been purchased or were under the jurisdiction of Disney.


It took several years for Sony and Disney team up on “Captain America: Civil War” and thus the debut of Spider-Man in MCU, which was beneficial for both companies. Sony gained various connections and relationships from MCU heroes, while Disney gained massive popularity from Spider-Man.

“Spider-Man 2″ Y “The Avengers” They were released in 2012, but while the Disney film was a huge success, Garfield’s version was a disappointment. This is how Sony decides to lend its character to the MCU, hoping to enjoy its popularity; However, he did not count on them asking him to start the story from scratch, with a new Peter Parker.

Tobey Maguire Y Andrew Garfield appeared next to Tom Holland to face the villains of their universes. But the idea of ​​his comeback was also thought for an exclusive scene after the credits. Talking to Variety about all the twists and turns of Spider-Man: No Way Home, the scriptwriters Erik Sommers Y Chris McKenna They admitted that they considered including the two actors in the film’s post-credits.

“We even said ‘Oh, we could make a label [post-créditos] with this! We could make a label out of that! ‘”McKenna said. Sommers added: “Can we do a TV show with the two of us traveling in a van solving mysteries?”, as a joke.

From a storytelling perspective, the multiverse concept is a great opportunity for creatives to fully exploit it. Anything is possible with the multiverse, and the Maguire / Garfield moments of “No Way Home” They have apparently opened up a whole new avenue of story possibilities.

Adding a few additional scenes with them in the credits, perhaps offering a glimpse of their lives in their proper universes, would have been a great way to cap off the movie. Instead, the actual credits had a scene that ended the post-credits story ofVenom 2 and the advancement of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

In another part of the interview, McKenna and Sommers touched on the possibility of taking some scenes from “No Way Home” that were not in the final cut for some future films. They both seemed interested in the idea, as did the fans themselves. However, there is nothing in the works at this time.

There were also brief rumors of the making of “The Amazing Spider-Man 3″ with Andrew Garfield, but were later discredited. A post-credits scene could have offered a better idea of ​​where alternate Peter Parkers are headed, but sadly it didn’t happen.

First post credit scene from “Spider-man: No way home”

After the first credits, Eddie Brock / Venom (Tom Hardy) appears in a bar in Mexico talking to the bartender, who explains some important details about the Avengers universe and Spider-Man from Tom Holland, tells him about Ironman, the Hulk, the Infinity Stones and Thanos’ Blip.

Eddie is very surprised by what he hears, but before he can find out more he returns to his universe. However, a part of Venom stays in that world, which could be a sign that Spider-Man will once again face the Symbiote.

Will the waiter played by Cristo Fernández turn into Venom or will the Symbiote look for another host? Will Tom Hardy join the MCU?
