Three weeks later, we all know the answer and fans have enjoyed like never before witnessing how the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been able to raise the level, open the multiverse and let the three actors who have played Spider-Man match up and fight together. onscreen. This is called meeting expectations.
Indeed, Tom Holland shared the scene with his predecessors, Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire, after his Peter Parker asked Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to make people forget that the spider superhero was him. However, Strange fails to cast his spell on him, and as a result, villains from other universes who know who Peter Parker is are able to get to him. Of course, also the other Spider-Man.
The long-awaited moment opens the door to the multiverse in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which will continue to be explored in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, so the satisfaction of the fans multiplies. However, the team of scriptwriters of the film that has once again made MCU lovers explode with emotion, they wanted the appearance of Maguire and Garfield to be a little longer and, in fact, they were thinking of several ideas to achieve it.
As Erik Sommers and Chris McKenna have explained in statements to Variety collected by ScreenRant, one of their main considerations was to include the two actors in the post-credits scenes of the film. "We even talked about, 'Oh, we could do a [post-credits] with this! We could do one with that!'" McKenna admitted without being too precise. To which Sommers jokingly added: "Can we do a television series with the two of us traveling in a van and solving mysteries?"
Finally, the chosen post-credits scenes were others and the appearance of the two ex-Spider-Man remained as part of the scene that had been planned for them, which arguedly made sense for the film and does not commit them further.
There is no doubt that when it comes to narratives, the concept of the multiverse is a giant sandbox that creatives can fully exploit. Everything is possible, in fact, and the appearance of Maguire and Garfield in No Way Home opens a new avenue of possible stories. Adding a few extra scenes with them after the credits would have been a fan dream and a great way to wrap up the film, but the team opted to finish Venom's own post-credits story: There Will Be Carnage and the Doctor trailer. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, whose theatrical release is scheduled for May 6, 2022.
