Fans and reporters still aren’t letting Andrew Garfield breathe when it comes to the web-slinger. An actor who played Peter Parker/Spider-Man in Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man duology denied several times that he’s in the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home, but it seems like his words don’t mean anything to fans who are still saying that No Way Home will assemble all three live-action Spider-Men – Maguire Garfield, and Holland.
Although Garfield is probably being sick of being asked about his alleged return, he still shared his thoughts on his colleagues Tobey Maguire, who played Spider-Man before him, and Tom Holland, who’s playing Spider-Man now, after him.
“Obviously for me Tobey Maguire was my original, like fell in love with that film version of that character. For me it was the comic books and the cartoon when I was a kid but then you have Tobey who is just this defining figure in my life. So then when I got to have the chance to play him it was a childhood dream coming true, but then now you have Tom, who I just think is the most remarkable actor and he’s infused the character with so much heart and sould and humor and charm and sweetness and goodness. It’s like a goodness that radiates from him, that is Peter Parker.
This undeniable goodness that he inherits form his aunt and his uncle. And it’s just a gorgeous thing to witness what he has done and what Jon Watts has done and what Amy Pascal and Kevin Feige have done with this character because I feel like they really lead with soul and I really feel like, as a fan, I’m just so thankful that you guys have created this version of the character which I can just be a fan of now. That’s a very diplomatic way of saying everyone, I love everyone whose ever done it.”Andrew Garfield for ET Canada
