Emma Stone Was Lied To About Former Andrew Garfield’s Role In NWH

Despite Scream’s recent dethronement from the top spot, Spider-Man: No Way Home remains a box office powerhouse. Following Peter Parker, as he attempts to reassemble the pieces of his life after being falsely accused of murder by Mysterio, this latest MCU adventure stars Tom Holland. When Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock and Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin return, the film’s scope is massive and introduces the Multiverse.

Andrew Garfield’s return as Spider-Man was one of the most anticipated, if fan reaction indicates. A few months after The Amazing Spider-Man 2’s financial and critical debacle, he had not spoken much about the role he had been playing since it was taken away from him shortly afterward.

To keep his involvement a secret, Garfield made every effort to do so. The ex-Marvel star insisted he wasn’t a part of the No Way Home project. This was despite all the evidence and leaks that suggested otherwise. Garfield appears to have deceived more than just the audience. To make matters worse, he kept the information hidden from Emma Stone, his ex-co-star.

It’s all about Andrew Garfield!

On the Happy Sad Confused podcast, actor Andrew Garfield discussed reprising his role in NWH. This was kept from his former co-star Emma Stone in the hit film The Amazing Spider-Man.

“[He] kept [the lie] going even with her,” the actor laughed, admitting that he “took it seriously:”

“Emma [Stone] kept on texting me, and she was like, ‘Are you in this new Spider-Man film?’ And I was like, ‘I don’t know what you’re talking about.’ She was like, ‘Shut up, just tell me,’ I’m like, ‘I honestly don’t know.’ I kept it going even with her, it was hilarious… And then she saw it, and she was like, ‘You’re a jerk’… I didn’t tell anyone, I took it super seriously.”

By not telling a close friend and former co-star Garfield was serious about the role; it is clear that Garfield took it very seriously. It’s worth asking if Emma Stone was ever sold on the idea. Despite his repeated denials, most Spider-Man: No Way Home fans had already concluded that he would appear in some capacity. As important as this role is to him, the actor’s insistence on playing it is a testament to that.

Garfield has expressed his enthusiasm for the role of Spider-Man in previous interviews. Fans are hoping that the former Peter Parker will continue to want to play the character in future storylines based on these strong feelings. The actor is likely to be given the opportunity. Alternatively, he could always relaunch his Amazing franchise. It’s more than likely, however, that Spider-Man in Venom’s universe will be based on that version of the wall-crawler.

Even Emma Stone could play Spider-Gwen in a live-action Spider-Gwen film by Sony. Garfield, on the other hand, may not learn of her involvement until the day he arrives on set, at which point she’ll no doubt try to recoup her losses.
