Newly surfaced concept art from Spider-Man: No Way Home shows that Doctor Strange was originally going to bring all three Spider-Men together.

The concept art was shared on X following the recent release of the book Spider-Man: No Way Home - The Art of the Movie. The images shows a slightly different version of events from the rooftop meeting that appeared in the final cut of Spider-Man: No Way Home following Aunt May's death. Doctor Strange uses magic portals to bring the Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield versions of Spider-Man into the MCU universe, where they come across Tom Holland's startled Spider-Man.

In the final version of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Ned Leeds summons the Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield Spider-Men into his house, using Doctor Strange's Sling Ring. Ned and MJ later bring the Spider-Man variants to the rooftop where they comfort Tom Holland's wall-crawler, who is crushed after the death of Aunt May. Doctor Strange was absent during this part of the movie, imprisoned in the Mirror Dimension after an earlier fight with Spider-Man.

Spider-Man: No Way Home - The Art of the Movie provides insight into other elements which didn't make it into the final film. This includes Spider-Man's symbiote suit and a scrapped fight between Green Goblin and Doctor Octopus. Concept art of an Iron Man-style suit for Green Goblin also recently surfaced online. The art book also includes some thoughts from Spider-Man actor Tobey Maguire. "Working with Andrew [Garfield] and Tom [Holland] was so dear to me, it really was special—a very rich experience for me, all around. It kind of reinvigorated my interest in performing," Maguire noted.
