Every Spider-Man and Marvel fan was shocked to see Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield return as their iconic Marvel characters in Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021). In his first public statement about appearing in the Multiverse Marvel movie, Andrew Garfield is on board to return as Spider-Man for his franchise.
Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield are the talks of the Marvel Collection, with their respective Marvel characters officially joining the MCU in No Way Home.
Nearly one million Tweets for #MakeTASM3, a fan-led campaign for Sony Pictures to produce The Amazing Spider-Man 3, almost broke the internet after this Spider-Man film took over the box office, and now Andrew Garfield is ready to put back on his superhero mask once again “if it felt right.”
Here’s the full quote from Variety:
“I mean, yes, definitely open to something if it felt right. Peter and Spider-Man, those characters are all about service, to the greater good and the many. He’s a working-class boy from Queens that knows struggle and loss and is deeply empathetic. I would try to borrow Peter Parker’s ethical framework in that, if there was an opportunity to step back in and tell more of that story, I would have to feel very sure and certain in myself.”
It’s fascinating to hear Andrew Garfield’s insecurities, doubting his ability to nail yet another Peter Parker role. Given the actor’s popularity among fans and critics, Garfield considers every part he is handed and appears only to take on a project if he feels that he’s ready.
Nonetheless, fans know that they’re ready to see more of Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man, but is Andrew Garfield ready?
The Amazing Spider-Man 3
Numerous reports from Sony Pictures insiders and Marvel leakers suggest that Sony and Marvel Studios are eyeing Andrew Garfield AND Emma Stone for multiple Spider-Man projects, with one of them undoubtedly being The Amazing Spider-Man 3.
Of course, the choice to return as the Marvel character swings through Marvel’s New York is up to Andrew Garfield.
Garfield continues with Variety:
“I am so grateful. I’m just really, really grateful that I got to tie up some loose ends for the Peter that I was playing. I love that character and I’m grateful that I got to work with these incredible actors, this incredible director, and Marvel in conjunction with Sony. It was joyful, and a feeling of closure for me. There was so many unanswered questions for my Peter, where we left it. I got to step back in and get some healing for him. And also really supporting [Holland’s] Peter, and honoring his character completing that trilogy, not distracting or detracting from it.”
The actor constantly out-performs himself in hit films like Hacksaw Ridge (2016) and Tick, Tick… Boom! (2021), but also knocks it out of the park in smaller projects like Silence (2016).
Garfield can work for anyone, anywhere, anytime, anytime at this point in his career. Fans of an A-list actor and household name will support Garfield no matter his decision. Still, it’s more than likely that we’ll see more of Garfield as Spider-Man in his solo film to tie off his infamous franchise, but also various Marvel series coming to Disney+ and influential films!
