Andrew Garfield Reveals He Improvised One Of The Best Lines From ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’

in Marvel

Kevin Feige’s Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is in full swing, with Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021), Black Widow (2021), and Eternals (2021) all leading up to the eagerly-anticipated Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021).

A Multiverse of characters was brought into the MCU in the movie, with a wayward spell cast by Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) bringing the Amazing Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) and the Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man (Tobey Maguire) into Tom Holland’s world.

Now, it’s been revealed that Garfield improvised one of the best lines from the web-slinger movie, one that captured the heart of the three Spider-Men teaming up.

Every Spider-Man and Marvel fan seemingly screamed in the movie theatre when Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield returned as their iconic Marvel characters in Spider-Man: No Way Home. We never thought a cinema experience could match that of Avengers: Endgame (2019), but wow, were we wrong.

The official trailer for Jon Watts’ No Way Home broke the internet last year, with the appearance of characters like Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin and Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man and Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man franchises having fans believe that Peter Parker actors Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield would appear alongside Tom Holland in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

After a lengthy dispute, Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige did not show the two Spider-Man stars in the official trailer for the MCU movie, which of course led to major cheers and great fan reactions when the movie was released in December and we finally saw them come through Ned’s portal.

Marvel and Disney have started an Academy Awards campaign in support of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man: No Way Home, which has been widely supported by fans. The multiversal movie skyrocketed to the top of the box office on its December release with $1.37 billion at the time of writing.

The movie has been well received by critics and audiences, scoring the #9 spot on IMDb’s Top 10 with a 9/10 rating and earning over 25,000 five-star reviews from fans (making it the highest scored Rotten Tomato film in history). Tom Holland has also been praised for his performance as Peter Parker, with fans loving the character’s development during Jon Watts’ trilogy.

And with all the hype surrounding Garfield and Maguire’s best moments in the MCU movie, including Garfield’s Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) redemption arc, Andrew Garfield has revealed that he improvised one of the movie’s most heartwarming lines.

In an interview with Variety, Garfield discussed his time on set with Holland and Maguire, revealing he spent two weeks filming No Way Home and also added some of his own adoration into the movie:

“There’s a line I improvised in the movie, looking at [Maguire and Holland] and I tell them I love them. That was just me loving them.”

Many fans have noted that this is one of their favorite “Spider-Men” moments from Spider-Man: No Way Home, and so the fact that Andrew Garfield was speaking from the heart when meeting his multiversal “brothers” Peter Parker #1 (Tom Holland) and Peter #2 (Tobey Maguire) adds a wonderful level to the line “I love you guys”.

Garfield went on to discuss the three actors’ realization that they had become the famous “pointing” Spider-Man meme in real life:

“I think the first time we were all in the suit together, it was hilarious because it’s like just three ordinary dudes who were just actors just hanging out. But then also, you just become a fan and say, “Oh my god we’re all together in the suits and we’re doing the pointing thing!” There was talk about going to the bathroom and, you know, padding around the package. We talked about what worked for each of us. Tom was jealous because I have little zippers in my suit that I can get my hands out of very easily. To work his phone, he had to use his nose because he couldn’t access his hands. We would have deeper conversations, too, and talk about our experiences with the character. And to have Amy Pascal there, who has seen through nine movies, including “Spider-Verse.” It was a revelatory experience for her, realizing how much life and time she’d given to this character. That was beautiful and profound.”

Twitter has been rife with mentions of Andrew Garfield since the release of the movie, with countless fans starting a Snyder Cut-inspired campaign to reinstate The Amazing Spider-Man 3 — Garfield’s canceled Spider-Man movie. With the revelation of Garfield’s truly heartfelt line and performance in the movie, as well as rumors of a possible push from Sony to bring Garfield’s Spider-Man back, it seems only time will tell if fans will get another glimpse of the web-slinger in action.
