William Spencer, Andrew Garfield’s Marvel stunt double, has reassured fans that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 is still in the works. Garfield tried his hand at portraying Peter Parker after Maguire brought Spider-Man to the big screen. This of course is before Tom Holland revitalized the character for the MCU.
Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man films were a mixed bag in terms of quality and box office success. The actor’s portrayal of Garfield was controversial at the time. However, in recent years, more and more fans have come out in support of Garfield.
All of this culminated in the film Spider-Man: No Way Home, which was just released. His high-profile cameo was a huge draw. This is despite Garfield’s best efforts to keep it under wraps. There’s no way Garfield couldn’t use the multiverse to his advantage. The response from the public was overwhelmingly positive, with fans praising Garfield and urging Sony to produce The Amazing Spider-Man 3.
After the release of NWH, speculation about a potential third solo Spidey film starring Andrew Garfield has only intensified. This reached what appeared to be a fever pitch on Wednesday.
Spencer was Andrew Garfield’s stunt double in all three of his Spider-Man appearances. ‘ While answering fan questions about The Amazing Spider-Man 3, he said “thank you so much” when one fan congratulated him on “TASM3.” Sony’s decision to cast Garfield in The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was widely seen as a sign that Garfield is on board for the sequel. Spencer later clarified the situation, stating that he thought the fan was referring to No Way Home and that TASM 3 is not in the works at this time.
At this point, it’s highly unlikely that Sony would bring Spencer back for The Amazing Spider-Man 3. After the lukewarm reception to the second film, Sony had planned to make a third Spider-Man movie with Garfield. Fans are happy with Garfield’s portrayal of Spider-Man right now.
However, Sony’s foray into the MCU means that another Amazing Spider-Man movie will require careful consideration and preparation. The chances are that Garfield will refuse to do it. Because of the hype surrounding NWH, it’s difficult to tell if The Amazing Spider-Man 3 is even a possibility right now.
On the contrary, this demonstrates that online readers should exercise caution when reading fan content. Rumors are a constant source of misinformation in the Marvel universe, and this is especially true.
Right now, there’s no Amazing Spider-Man 3. However, Garfield’s Spidey may be able to fly once more if enough fans make their voices heard and Sony agrees that it is worth it. The best way to celebrate is to wait for an official announcement, rather than a vague social media post.
