Andrew Garfield Sets Record 'Straight' About Appearing In 'Spider-Man: No Way Home'
SPOILER WARNING: This article contains several rumored spoilers for Spider-Man: No Way Home. Spider-Man may be able to do whatever a spider can, but he cannot stop you from potentially ruining your favorite film franchise by ignoring spoiler alerts. Don't say we didn't warn you.
Bad news if you were hoping the MCU overlords were planning to recreate the Spider-Man pointing meme in the franchise's upcoming third installment – despite the pervasive rumor that ex-Spider-Men, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield would reprise their respective roles as various iterations of Peter Parker alongside Tom Holland in Spider-Man: No Way Home, it seems a triple-Spidey reunion may not actually be in the cards. In a recently published interview with Variety, Garfield took some time off from his favorite pastime of shocking people by having a British accent to clarify that despite the chatter among the MCU rumor mill, fans should not expect to see him in the new Spider-Man movie come its December release date.
"I understand why people are freaking out about the concept of that because I'm a fan as well," Garfield told Variety of fans' excitement surrounding a possible Spider-Man crossover. “You can't help but imagine scenes and moments of 'Oh, my God, how f---ing cool would it be if they did that? But it's important for me to say on the record that this is not something I'm aware I am involved in,” he continued.
Yet considering the pervasiveness of this rumor, which had been spreading for months, as well as the questionable content of a few unverified images claiming to be on-set leaks, Garfield is well aware that fans will probably call “BS” on his Spidey denial. "But I know I'm not going to be able to say anything that will convince anyone that I don't know what’s happening," he explained. "No matter what I say, I'm f---ed. It's either going to be really disappointing for people or it's going to be really exciting."
Although it seems we may have to wait until December 17 to know entirely for certain whether the star's impassioned plea is actually true, Garfield also sounded off on something he can confirm – the positive experience he had while portraying Peter Parker in the Amazing Spider-Man film series.
“It was only beautiful," he recalled. "I got to meet Emma [Stone] and work with her and Sally Field. I had karma with Amy Pascal, who was a mother figure, and we would fight, but ultimately, we loved each other on a deep level. We tried to meet as much in the middle as we could in terms of why I wanted to do this role, and what her needs were as the head of the studio,” the actor explained.
So folks, remember, with great power, comes great responsibility – including that to not spoil a $250 million film, lest you face the terrifying wrath of Kevin Feige.
