Andrew Garfield is on top of the world. Being one of the most talked-about actors during the tumultuous Oscars, Garfield came right behind Will Smith and Chris Rock in the social media buzz. If that slap from Smith had not happened, Andrew Garfield might have been the most famous man that night — without winning an award!

Every Marvel fan wants to see more of the Hacksaw Ridge (2016) actor, especially in the Marvel Collection. For years, fans have waited for The Amazing Spider-Man 3, but Garfield just dropped some depressing news on his superhero franchise.

Now, however, Garfield reveals that he has “no update” on The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and more:

“No one’s going to believe anything I say ever again,” said Andrew Garfield when asked for an update on ‘The Amazing #SpiderMan 3’
