While Marvel Studios is known for their groundbreaking CGI and VFX, one editing mistake in the official trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home changes everything.

In Brazil, most Marvel fans noticed that at the 0:55 second mark of the Brazilian No Way Home trailer, you could see the villain Lizard (Rhys Ifans) being kicked/punched in the face by an invisible character.

In the United States and elsewhere, various versions of the trailers were edited for specific countries.

In Brazil, however, every Marvel fan noticed that when iconic characters Electro (Jaime Foxx), Sandman (Thomas Haden Church), and Lizard are lunging towards Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in Marvel’s New York, Lizard mysteriously swings his head to the left, insinuating that the Marvel character was kicked in the face by another Spider-Man.

However, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s “Spider-Men” characters did not appear in the official trailer.

It’s clear that someone kicked Lizard midair. On top of that, it doesn’t make sense for the character to jump towards open space when Tom Holland’s Spider-Man is to the left of the character.

To the dismay of some, Sony and Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige agreed on keeping the reveal of Maguire and Garfield’s Spider-Man characters for the Marvel movie, not wanting to spoil a significant event in a trailer.

Nonetheless, Lizard’s awkward movement confirms that another superhero/Avenger is punching the villain, and it’s not Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch).

It’s surreal thinking that Tobey Maguire might be in the Spider-Man suit again, along with Andrew Garfield — who previously stated he was not in the movie.

The Marvel Universe is becoming much more than Marvel Characters/Earth’s Mightiest Heroes like Star-Lord/Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), and Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers (Brie Larson).

Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield are set to appear in No Way Home. Seeing the two characters join the Marvel Cinematic Universe on the big screen will have a more significant impact on the Marvel Universe than Captain America: Civil War (2016), Avengers: Infinity War (2018), and Avengers: Endgame (2019).

Tom Holland is leading the way for Marvel Cinematic Universe newcomers Ms. Marvel/Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani), Moon Knight (Oscar Isaac), Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn), She-Hulk (Tatiana Maslany), Thena (Angelina Jolie), and more.

Entering into a whole new universe (thanks to the Multiverse spawned by Loki), three Peter Parkers (Maguire, Garfield, and Tom Holland) are defending Marvel’s New York against the Sinister Six, led by Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus and Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin.

In No Way Home, Tom Holland (Peter Parker/Spider-Man) and Zendaya (MJ) are joined by Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Stephen Strange), Jon Favreau (Happy Hogan), Marisa Tomei (Aunt May), Jacob Batalon (Ned Leeds), and the villain with great power Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus.
