Not long ago, Andrew Garfield was interviewed by Variety. The star revealed that he and Tobey Maguire were on set  filming Spider-Man: No Way Home for “two weeks.” Garfield suggested how the duration gave them more than enough time to turn their presence into the movie more than just a cameo or a “Hi! Bye!” situation.

“We were shooting for two weeks, Toby and I. But I think we managed to achieve something that is not just showing up and going, “Hi! Bye!” My Spider-Man got to save his younger brother’s romantic relationship, potentially.”

Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s characters share almost all their screen time together for a bunch of important scenes. So for production to run smoothly, it was necessary for them both to be on set together during that period. 

Tobey and Andrew make their first appearance at the beginning of the third act of No Way Home. And from there on, the two legends continue to carry the movie alongside Tom Holland. Contrary to this, Charlie Cox returned as Matt Murdock in a cameo for just one scene.
