Every Marvel fan was beside themselves when Andrew Garfield ripped off his iconic Spider-Man mask to reveal his beloved character in Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021). The dear Peter Parker was stolen from the spotlight, but his triumphant return washed away years of pain. Despite having “no idea” of whether or not he’d appear in the Marvel movie, Garfield just revealed that he knew about his big superhero moment for over two years.

It’s not uncommon for actors and Marvel executives to plan out massive, groundbreaking moments like Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s MCU debut years in advance. Still, given the rushed sense of production that Tom Holland and others revealed about the filming of Spider-Man: No Way Home, it would seem that the “Spider-Trio” idea was a last-minute pitch.

That’s not the case, as Andrew Garfield just revealed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that he knew about his Spider-Man moment since Avengers: Endgame (2019) hit theaters:

The cat is out of the bag, and Andrew Garfield couldn’t be more relieved about talking freely to the press and public about his involvement in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Of course, new rumors are brewing that the superhero and future Avenger will appear in Morbius (2022), reportedly delayed due to the success of No Way Home. However, many believe that Marvel and Sony Pictures paused the upcoming movie to film end credit scenes featuring Andrew Garfield. Many suggest the film takes place in his respective timeline/universe.

Parading through Marvel’s New York alongside Tom Holland and Tobey Maguire’s iconic characters was a joyride for Garfield, leading him to coin the now-iconic “I love you guys” line on the spot.
