So why didn’t Tobey Maguire i.e Andrew Garfield’s Spidermen know of the Avengers? Let’s take a look!
The theory takes into consideration multiple Avengers and tries to establish if their existence in the previous two Spider-Man universes could actually be impossible. The biggest clue was added in by director Sam Raimi himself with 2004’s Spider-Man 2.
In it, JK Simmons is trying to come up with a name for Alfred Molina’s freshly minted villain, when he discards ‘Doctor Strange’ as already taken and settles in on Doctor Octopus.
As for Natasha Romanoff and Clint Barton, staying in the shadows may not have been all that difficult either, considering how that was what they did before the battle of New York. Thor, as hinted in an episode of What If? that showed his life without Loki, would not have found a reason to visit Earth at all.
Steve Rogers/Captain America, thawed out of the ice in 2011, three years after Spider-Man 3, might not have wanted to join back the workforce after the resurrection.
Iron Man/Tony Stark maybe living the good life in Malibu and Dr Banner/Hulk never had an issue with being away from the limelight anyway.
