Spider-Man Leak On BarkBox Is Proof That Tobey Maguire Is Returning In ‘No Way Home’…Maybe?

Marvel has always been pretty good about keeping things under wraps when it comes to their new movies, but lately, it seems like there have been quite a few slip-ups. First, there was the time LEGO accidentally revealed the Spider-Man: No Way Home suit, and later, the villain from Dr. Strange and the Multiverse of Madness was leaked in a coloring book and puzzle. Granted, they seemed to all be errors from companies that partnered with Marvel, but still! The MCU has a reputation to keep! The latest spoiler? A Spider-Man leak on BarkBox seemed to support what many fans already suspect: that Tobey Maguire is going to be back in Spider-Man: No Way Home.

What Exactly Did We See In The Spider-Man Leak On BarkBox?

Twitter user @Dominic_kravitz had received BarkBox’s holiday exclusive Spider-Man box (it  introduces “the world’s number one web slinger to the world’s number one toy flinger,” according to the website) in the mail and the eagle-eyed Marvel fan spotted something: a glimpse of Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man suit. Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man wore a suit that had webbing that “popped” (like when you use Puffy Paint on fabric), whereas Tom Holland’s web-slinger has webbing that is more smoothly incorporated into the outfit. Check out the tweet below:

While it seems silly for Marvel to deny that Maguire and other Spider-Man, Andrew Garfield, won’t be in No Way Home (they’re bringing back the villains from both of their universes and there have been leaks left and right), there still isn’t confirmation that the Spider-Verse is coming next month. Still, I think most people are expecting it by this point and all leaks are now just a way to rub it in Sony and Marvel’s faces that they can’t keep denying the inevitable. There’s the potential that the designer just chose a random Spider-Man image and incorporated it on the BarkBox box, but given how all the signs seem to point at Maguire and Garfield returning, that seems like a weak argument.

Spider-Man: No Way Home premieres December 17, 2021 in theaters everywhere.
