Spider-Man: No Way Home writers Erik Sommers and Chris McKenna had some ideas for Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield after the events of the film.
Based on the trailer for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madnessit seems that the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home caused some significant ripple effects in the MCU. No way home notably reset Tom Holland’s Spidey, where the world forgets its secret identity. During IGN Fan Fest 2022, Chris McKenna shared that he and co-writer Erik Sommers also had some ideas for what might have happened to Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield:
“Believe me, we talked about it and we actually had ideas for, you know, ways to show the effects if there were any. I mean, believe me, these are all good questions.”
Erik Sommers went on to say that they almost explored the idea of showing how Doctor Strange’s spell would have affected the worlds of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield in a post-credits scene:
“Chris and I were even tempted to maybe, you know, put a tag where you get to see something. “What would happen if this man goes back and this has changed? Wouldn’t that be nice?’ Again, we didn’t want to distract from the emotion of what was going on with our Peter Parker.”
Here’s the synopsis for it Spider-Man: No Way Home:
For the first time in Spider-Man cinematic history, the identity of our friendly neighborhood hero is revealed, putting his Superhero responsibilities in conflict with his normal life and endangering those he cares about most. When he enlists the help of Doctor Strange to recover his secret, the spell tears a hole in their world, unleashing the most powerful villains ever to battle a Spider-Man in a universe. Now Peter will have to overcome his greatest challenge yet, which will forever change not only his own future, but also the future of the Multiverse.
