It seems that Marvel Studios’ upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021) has had more anticipation than any other MCU movie before it.

There has been intense speculation the last few months over the plot and cast for Kevin Feige’s upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movie.

Now, it seems the eagerly-awaiting second trailer for the Marvel movie is delayed due to an apparent dispute between Disney and Sony.

Jon Watts returns this year with the third solo outing for the famous Marvel web-slinger following his successful Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) and Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019). With rumors escalating among Marvel fans, social media is rife with speculation about the upcoming cast.

In a recent interview with Empire Magzine, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige talked about fan expectations surrounding Spider-Man: No Way Home, most notably the inclusion of previous Spider-Man actors Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield making an appearance in the film.

Spider:Man: No Way Home will feature Benedict Cumberbatch in his fan-favorite role as Doctor Strange, alongside Zendaya (MJ), Jacob Batalon (Ned Leeds), Marisa Tomei (May Parker), and Jon Favreau (Harold “Happy Hogan), in a Multiversal series of events. The Multiverse was first seen in the MCU in the Disney+ series Loki starring Tom Hiddleston, and most recently in What If…?.

The appearance of characters from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man and Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man franchises in the leaked trailer last month made fans believe that Peter Parker actors Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will be appearing alongside Tom Holland in No Way Home, especially with the introduction of the Multiverse.

Now, it has been reported that Disney and Sony are debating whether to include Maguire and Garfield in the second trailer for the Marvel Studios movie coming this December.

According to CinemaBlend’s Sean O’Connell, Marvel fans will have to wait longer for the trailer due to a dispute over whether to include “them”:

As for that #SpiderManNoWayHome trailer and why it’s not finalized? One studio wants to show THEM, and the other is very much

Of course, if this is true it would confirm rumors and months of speculation regarding the cast of No Way Home, and the appearances of Tobey Maguire, from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy, and Andrew Garfield, from Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man franchise.

In a recent interview with Empire Magazine, Tom Holland hinted at the multitude of actors fans will see, calling it “crazy”. It seems as though Holland thought Marvel Studios and Sony were trying to do the impossible – bring “everyone” together from the previous Spider-Man franchises.

Even if the second trailer is delayed, Marvel fans don’t have long to wait to see the movie. Spider-Man: No Way Home will be released in cinemas on December 17, 2021.
