Sony Pictures' marketing team has been extremely busy over the last couple of days trying to take down the leaked Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer which surfaced all over social media ahead of its supposed debut at CinemaCon 2021. Turns out, that's not the only problem the studio had to face because after the leaked trailer circulated online, alleged set images from the highly-anticipated Marvel Cinematic Universe flick would follow suit.
A rumored set image of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield quickly spread like wildfire all over social media and it sees them donning their iconic Spidey costumes. From the photos that surfaced, Maguire's face is hard to make out but the one featuring Garfield seems to be the real deal.
You can try your luck scouring all social media platforms to see the said images but in case you're unsuccessful, it's because Sony Pictures have also taken them down. Well, according to the latest reports, at least. Discord user JaredEx#2015 claims on the r/MarvelStudiosSpoilers' channel (via The Direct) that the said photo was removed from social media following a copyright notice. The copyright strike was allegedly filed by Elliot Ingram from Entura International, an anti-piracy enforcement agency on behalf of Columbia Pictures, a division of Sony.

Sony going out of its way to remove the said images pretty much proves their authenticity but you know, even if they take those down, more and more fans are already starting to get convinced that Maguire and Garfield are actually part of Spider-Man: No Way Home. Obviously, Sony and Marvel are trying to generate as much hype as they could so I guess we'll have to wait a little longer before they make it official.Spider-Man: No Way Home will be released in cinemas on December 17, 2021.
