While it will likely be a while before audiences see a Marvel movie with the epic scope of Avengers: Endgame, the third film in the Sony/Marvel Spider-Man partnership looks to at least be a worthy challenger to that notion. After months of rabid fan speculation, the first trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home confirmed the rumors: we’ll be seeing the return of various Spidey villains from both the Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield versions of “Spider-Man” as they face Tom Holland’s Spidey—thanks to some multiversal shenanigans Peter gets up to with Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch).

However, if the rumors are to be believed, Maguire and Garfield themselves will also appear to assist Holland in dispatching the crew of foes. All parties involved are working overtime to keep the surprise, but at this point, it feels like something of an open secret. Time will tell if the rumors were just rumors or if they were indeed correct.
