Andrew Garfield breaks his silence on why he chose to make a comeback as his version of Spider-Man. Tom Holland’s return as Spider-Man in NWH was a highlight. However, the MCU star wasn’t the only most eagerly anticipated by fans. The returnees dominated the conversation this time around. Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield joined the ranks of Spider-Man, as did Alfred Molina and Willem Dafoe.
The last time Maguire and Garfield had worn spandex had been 14 years prior, with Maguire’s being seven years older. Fans of Tom Holland have never forgotten about those who came before him, and they shouldn’t either. As soon as you put on that suit, you’re joining one of the most significant pop-culture legacies ever created.
Attempts were made by Marvel and Disney to keep the appearance of the additional Spider-Men a secret. The fact that they were going to appear was no secret to their devoted following, who dubbed them “Hollywood’s worst kept secret.”
To keep the show running, it was up to the actors, and Andrew Garfield took this responsibility to heart. Garfield, in particular, was frequently quizzed about his plans, which he categorically denied. Andrew Garfield breaks his silence and has now spoken publicly about how it felt to return to the role of Peter Parker after so long.
It’s been months since Andrew Garfield said anything about his time on Spider-Man: No Way Home, but now he’s talking about it. Coming back as Peter Parker gave him a “feeling of closure,” the actor said in an interview with Variety. “[He is] so grateful,” the actor said.
“I am so grateful. I’m just really, really grateful that I got to tie up some loose ends for the Peter that I was playing. I love that character and I’m grateful that I got to work with these incredible actors, this incredible director, and Marvel in conjunction with Sony. It was joyful, and a feeling of closure for me. There was so many unanswered questions for my Peter, where we left it. I got to step back in and get some healing for him. And also really supporting [Holland’s] Peter, and honoring his character completing that trilogy, not distracting or detracting from it.”
Peter Parker, played by Andrew Garfield, was tragically cut short. After the critical and financial failure of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Sony made a shift in strategy and left the actor in the lurch.” As a result, it’s easy to see why an experience like No Way Home would be so therapeutic for the actor.
Fans have rediscovered their love for him. After the release of the most recent Marvel film, a campaign was launched online for the production of an Amazing Spider-Man 3 sequel.
Even so, he doesn’t have to return to his old franchise to make a comeback. For starters, he could be Sony’s version of Spider-Man in the Venom and Morbius worlds. They could also make a live-action Spider-Gwen with Emma Stone and continue their story in unexpected ways.
Regarding the MCU, an appearance in the Multiverse of Madness is an obvious choice. Finally, the rumored Secret Wars project by the Russo Brothers could provide plenty of creative opportunities for Garfield to make his return to the big screen.
