Over 7 Years After He Last Played ‘Spider-Man’, Garfield Takes The Opportunity To Retry The Role He Never Completed in Spider-Man: No Way Home
Fans have finally been able to cure their longing for longtime “Spider-Man” star Andrew Garfield in “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” despite the star constantly reassuring fans that he couldn’t possibly be in the film.
As is known, Garfield’s tenure was cut short after only two films. In addition to the poor reviews for “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”, the success of the MCU led Sony to pursue a creative partnership with Marvel Studios.
More than seven years after he last played “Spider-Man”, Garfield took the opportunity to try again and take a deeper dive into a role he never finished.
He has now revealed the reason why he made the decision to wear the mask once again in “No Way Home”.
“I didn’t expect to have another conversation about possibly playing Peter Parker,” Garfield told Variety. “I feel really excited to be a fan again.”
However he was later contacted by Kevin Feige and told of the “No Way Home” idea. As a fan of Spider-Man, seeing the 3 heroes on one screen is certainly fun.
“I got this call from Amy Pascal and Kevin Feige and Jon Watts with this idea. It sounded really fun, very spiritual and thematically interesting,” he continued.
“On a basic level, as a Spider-Man fan, just the idea of seeing three Spider-Men in the same frame is enough.”
He also further explained his identity. According to him, returning to the Spider-Man film is quite an attractive thing.
“The pitch is absolutely captivating,” he continued. “They said, ‘You played this character your way and what would you like to explore if you had the chance? If you were thrown into this other universe and faced with this younger you and this older you, how would you react?'”
Garfield sees the three Spider-Mans as brothers. “There’s also the point of seeing someone you love walking down a path you’ve walked, and you know it’s not leading where you ultimately want to go,” explained the actor.
