Reprising their roles as the web-slinger many years after their cinematic debut as the character, actors Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield appear in Marvel’s latest Spider-Man film alongside the most recent iteration played by Tom Holland.
Having long kept the surprise a secret from fans worldwide, Maguire and Garfield are currently enjoying their time in the Marvel limelight, with some even calling for their characters to be reinstated in the current Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Eager to see the reactions of film and comic-book fans during the moment of the movie’s big reveal, the two actors decided to sneak into a screening of Spider-Man: No Way Home to check out the response of fans.
