Andrew Garfield’s MCU Return Is Up For Questioning; Actor Responds

Andrew Garfield has stated that he does not expect to ever reprise his role as Spider-Man. The actor’s tenure as the wall-crawler in Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man films abruptly ended after Sony axed The Amazing Spider-Man 3. While the role of Peter Parker/Spider-Man had been vacant for seven years, Garfield was given the opportunity to return in the MCU’s NWH.

There had been persistent speculation for months that the actor would show up in the newest Marvel Studios and Sony film collaboration. Due to his busy schedule, Garfield was unable to avoid interview questions from the media. He was promoting projects like Netflix’s Tick, Tick… Boom! and The Eyes of Tammy Faye at the same time as Spider-Man, Tobey Maguire. In spite of widespread rumors, Garfield insisted that his Spider-Man was not a part of No Way Home. By now everyone knows that the actor’s attempt to hide his involvement in the upcoming third MCU Spider-Man movie with Tom Holland and fellow former Spider-Man Tobey Maguire was well-intentioned.

Despite Garfield’s cameo in the NWH, it doesn’t appear that another Garfield Spidey appearance is on the cards. On the heels of his recent appearance at the SAG Awards in 2022, the actor was recently asked by Variety whether or not viewers could anticipate seeing Peter Parker on the big screen again soon. Garfield quickly stated that he has “no plans” to reprise his role as Spider-Man in the future.

“No plans, that’s the truth. I mean, everyone’s gonna call me a liar for the rest of my life. I am the boy who cried wolf now.”

Garfield appears to be well aware of the skepticism that some of his Spider-Man claims have sparked. Since the actor repeatedly denied his involvement in Spider-Man: No Way Home, he has proven that he, like many MCU actors, is capable of lying to protect Marvel secrets. That being said, it’s possible that Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man 3 has already passed, or that Garfield’s web-slinger will never return to the MCU’s expanding multiverse. Additionally, Garfield has recently expressed his displeasure with the role of Spider-Man, which further diminishes the chances of him returning.

To some, it may seem premature to speculate about Garfield’s next role as Spider-Man. Sony is preparing for the release of Morbius while Spider-Man: No Way Home is still playing in theaters and doing exceptionally well at the box office. Garfield’s chemistry with fellow Spideys Maguire and Holland in No Way Home was a highlight for many viewers, so it’s safe to say that if he ever decides to don the mask again, the fans will be thrilled! Spider-Man may be a global phenomenon, but there’s plenty more in store for fans of the MCU in the coming months.
