It’s been a long time since we got to hear any news of MCU’s upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home. The movie gathered up a storm after reports surfaced that Tobey Maguire and Tom Holland will be coming to play a role. The movie is already casting Jamie Foxx as electro, a role he previously played in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. As the theories of a Spider-Verse centric movie keep gaining momentum, Marvel keeps adding more fuel to that fire. William spencer, the stunt double of Andrew Garfield from The Amazing Spider-Man movies, was recently seen on MCU’s Spider-Man 3 film set.
Our Spidey-sense is tingling so much it just might pop a vein. Spider-Man: No way Home is being kept under tight wraps by Marvel Studio execs. They have been moving heaven and earth to keep the plot details from leaking out. But they did slip up this time. Despite no involvement from Tom Holland, this major slip-up just might have cost them the element of surprise. They were counting on that so much.
Enter The Spider-Verse
In an as of now deleted Instagram post, pictures surfaced that confirmed William Spencer was working for Marvel Studios. The post showed Greg Townley and Spencer standing together on the film set. For those of you that do not know, Townley is the stunt double for Tom Holland in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Here is the post we are talking about:

The Spider-Verse theory now looks like a distinct probability. Now if we could get to confirm Tobey Maguire makes an appearance as well, this thing is done and dusted. The Spider-Verse is a concept born out of Marvel Comics. It stated that there are multiple parallel worlds adjacent to each other. Each world is connected to the rest by their own version of Spider-Man. The Spider-Verse theory is gaining major traction for all the right reasons.
Too Little Too Late?
What’s even more interesting is that William Spencer swiftly deleted the post a short while later. But he had set ablaze the internet by then already whether he liked it or not. A Paramount affiliated account had previously confirmed the involvement of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Paramount does have zero connections with Spider-Man. Their confirmation is not going to be taken lightly by the fans though.
The Spider-Verse concept has been explored in Sony’s animated Spider-Man movie – Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse. Marvel Studios might be reframing the concept for a live action movie. So it pays to have a few familiar faces for fans of the friendly neighborhood superhero.
