How Andrew Garfield Came Into Spider-Man: No Way Home

Garfield Talks Lying To Fans About No Way Home Appearance

Want to hear the story of how Andrew Garfield came into Spider-Man: No Way Home? Course you do. Garfield recently chatted with Variety about No Way Home. Now he’s finally allowed to, Garfield told the story of how his come back happened.

“I wasn’t expecting to ever have a conversation again about potentially playing Peter Parker. I felt very excited to just to be a fan again. But I got this call from Amy Pascal and Kevin Feige and Jon Watts with this idea. It was immediately undeniable. It sounded incredibly fun, incredibly spiritual — trippy and thematically interesting. On a base level, as a Spider-Man fan, just the idea of seeing three Spider-Men in the same frame was enough.”

“The pitch was really, really enticing. They said, “You played this character in your way and what would you want to explore if you had an opportunity? If you were dumped into this other universe and faced with this younger you and this older you, how will you respond?””

“We talked a lot about mentorship. We talked a lot about brotherhood and about what it is to be the older brother, younger brother and the middle brother. There’s also a thing of seeing someone you love walking down a path that you’ve already walked down, and you know it doesn’t lead the place where you ultimately meant to go.”

“That character is isolated in his emotional experience and physical experience. But what happens when that aloneness gets blasted open, and you come to realize that you’ve never been alone and there are other brothers going through the exact same thing? That’s a big spiritual journey to go on, man. And then we just milked out all the fun that we could possibly have.”

I do seem to have loved No Way Home slightly less than most with my B+ review. However to me that’s a good score and this was a good movie. I didn’t love the previous Spider-Man movies whatsoever. However it was cool to see Garfield and Maguire back in No Way Home. Ultimately it was the right call from the powers that be.
