Spider-Man: No Way Home has to be one of the most anticipated Marvel movies of all-time. This is simply because of the sheer number of characters appearing in the film that return from previous incarnations of Spider-Man. The return of Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Sandman, and more, has fans also anticipating the return of the last two Spider-Men, including actor Tobey Maguire.
Tie-in merchandise is always a great place to get the jump on movie leaks for major characters. This merchandise has to be completed way in advance and it’s hard to keep these things a secret. The biggest exception to this is Baby Yoda. Remember how Lucasfilm didn’t make any Baby Yoda merchandise just so it was a huge surprise when the character appeared on-screen?
History has shown that manufacturers are always a good source of information, with products being listed for pre-sale and often appearing on shelves well before the project that spawned them.
For a while, the internet was under the impression that Tobey Maguire’s involvement in Spider-Man: No Way Home had been inadvertently confirmed when his version of the wall-crawler was spotted as part of the Hasbro’s Titan Heroes line, branded with the upcoming film’s logo. As it turns out, it was all a ruse, and the culprits have now come forward to claim responsibility.
You guys remember that “Tobey toy leak” from a couple months ago? I think now is a good time to reveal the fact that the Spider-Man: Lotus VFX team is responsible… pic.twitter.com/s1mdfnm8Ge

Not so fast though, we’re still convinced he’s coming back. Why bring back all of the other villains if you don’t bring the Spidey’s to fight them off?
