Are the Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield Spider-Man movies now part of the MCU universe?
I've already asked this, but people didn't seem to understand the question, so let me try to explain. Keep in mind I haven't seen the movie, but I have read the Wikipedia page.
Back to the Future and Django Unchained are in the same universe, because Django and Doc Brown appeared in A Million Ways to Die in the West. I know those scenes were just little jokes, it's the only example I can think of.
So in that way, are the Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield Spider-Man movies now part of the MCU universe? For example, when Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man appeared in this movie, was he the same character that appeared in the Sam Raimi movies, or is he a completely different character, that was just played by Tobey Maguire for the nostalgia?
If it's the same character, I think it's ridiculous. Those movies are supposed to be completely standalone. Just imagine if the characters from the Christopher Reeve Superman movies, the Tim Burton Batman movies, the Dark Knight trilogy, and Joaquin Phoenix's Joker appeared in the DCEU.
