Graham Norton accidentally posts Garfield and Maguire in No Way Home poster in now-deleted Tweet

They're definitely in it, right?

There's only 10 days to go until hotly-anticipated Spidey threequel No Way Home hits cinemas - but talk show host Graham Norton may have accidentally spoiled one of its biggest reveals.

With the marketing campaign for Spider-Man: No Way Home ramping up ahead of the movie's December 15 release, stars Tom Holland and Zendaya, who play Peter Parker and his high-school girlfriend MJ, appeared on The Graham Norton Show on Friday night to chat through Spider-Man's new multi-verse-spanning adventure.

However the show's social media account may have accidentally ruined one of its plot-twists.

In a now-deleted Tweet, The Graham Norton Show's official Twitter account posted: "Spider-Man: No Way Home, starring @Zendaya and @TomHolland1996 arrives in cinemas December 15!" - alongside a poster that appeared to show the return of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield's previous incarnations of Spider-Man.

Rumours of Maguire - who played Spider-Man in director Sam Raimi's trilogy from 2002 until 2007 - and Garfield - who played the hero in Marc Webb's 2012's reboot The Amazing Spider-Man and its 2014 sequel - have been rife online since it was revealed that director Jon Watts No Way Home deals with the Dr Strange and the multi-verse.

Fan-speculation intensified when recent trailers revealed a slew of returning Spider-Man villains from Maguire and Garfield's time-lines, including Willem Dafoe's Green Goblin, Alfred Molina's Doc Ock, Jamie Foxx's Electro and the Lizard - among others.

Now it seems the cat - or should we say spider - is out of the bag, with Norton's since-vanished tweet appearing to show Holland's Spider-Man flanked by a suited-up Garfield and Maguire.

Well, sort of.

Avid fans were quick to point out that this could just be a case of a simple PR mistake.

According to Twitter sleuths, the image in question is a fan-created mock up poster - and not officially linked to No Way Home or Marvel.

What's more, apparently The Graham Norton Show has a history of accidentally posting fan-posters by mistake, having published a fan-made image of the 50th anniversary Doctor Who special, The Day of the Doctor, on telly.

Still, it hasn't stopped fans' spider-senses from tingling at the prospect of Maguire and Garfield's return to the spider-verse - and with a little over a week to go before all is revealed, the question will soon be answered once and for all.
