The most recent trailer for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse included a significant allusion to the various live-action web-slingers played by Tom Holland, Andrew Garfield, and Tobey Maguire.
There will be a ton of new and returning web-heads in Spider-Verse 2, but it’s unclear whether any notable Spider-Men from Spider-Man: No Way Home will receive special attention in the animated movie.
Since releasing a parody poster of the trio alongside Miles Morales and the rest of his Spider gang, Sony Pictures has been teasing the involvement of Holland, Garfield, and Maguire in the Spider-Verse films.
Spider-Verse 2 Unveils MCU Connection
The brand-new international trailer for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse has been made public by Sony Pictures.
The two-minute teaser featured breathtaking action scenes, a significant Easter egg related to Spider-Man: No Way Home from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and an amazing opening montage with Tom Holland, Tobey Maguire, and Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Men.
A few clips from the Spider-Man live-action movies were included at the opening of the teaser.
When speaking to Otto Octavius at the beginning of the trailer, Tobey Maguire’s Peter Parker from Spider-Man 2 said that sometimes doing what’s right means sacrificing what we desire most:
“Sometimes to do what’s right, we have to give up the thing that we want the most.”
Garfield’s Spider-Man then continued, musing on the adversaries he encounters as New York’s friendly neighborhood hero:
“Every day, I wake up knowing that the more people I try to save, the more enemies I will make.”
The final exciting Easter egg was revealed when Tom Holland’s Spider-Man was heard declaring that it is time for him to prove himself, a quote from Spider-Man: Homecoming from 2017:
“This is my chance to prove myself.”
Miles Morales asks Miguel O’Hara (Spider-Man 2099) about perhaps joining the “Spider-team” at 0:57 in the clip.
O’Hara declined him nevertheless, mentioning the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home, mentioning Doctor Strange, and mentioning the “little nerd” on Earth – 1999999.:
Miles: “What’s a guy gotta do to join this Spider-team?
Miguel: “You can never be part of this. And don’t even me get started on Doctor Strange and the little nerd back on Earth 199999.”

Will Tom Holland, Andrew Garfield, and Tobey Maguire Appear in Spider-Verse 2?
The latest mention of the live-action Spider-Men in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse may allude to the possibility that they will eventually make an appearance in the future sequel.
Although the three major Spider-Men making an appearance would be exciting for the viewers, it might be too soon.
Also, given Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse is the final installment in the trilogy, it would be the most acceptable project for Tom Holland, Andrew Garfield, and Tobey Maguire to feature in.
An early intention to have cameos by Holland, Garfield, and Maguire in a “ambitious tag” from the original movie was confirmed by Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse producer Chris Miller, but it didn’t take place.
The three might still make an appearance in Across the Spider-Verse, but it might take place in a post-credits sequence that sets up the plot of Beyond the Spider-Verse.
By doing this, Miller would be able to carry out his original idea to bring back the core group of web-slingers while also hinting at the Spider-Verse franchise’s upcoming projects.
On June 2, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will make its theatrical debut.
