Andrew Garfield steps back on his Spider-man: No Way Home comments… a bit

May 9th, 2021 by Marc Comments

We have suspected for some time now that Spider-Man: No Way Home would be the MCU/Sony’s attempt at a live-action into the Spider-verse with Andrew Garfield and Toby Maguire returning as their previous incarnations of Spidey, with the movie coming just before Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, we fully expect there to be a lot of cross-realities going on.

Indeed, once we learned that Alfred Molina is returning as Doc Ock and Jamie Fox as Electro, both enemies from the previous Spider-man movies, we felt pretty confident we were set to see the three – including the MCU’s Holland – Spider-men (mans?) on screen together.

However, in a couple of days ago Garfield, during a couple of different interviews, said he ‘hasn’t had a phone call’ to be in the movie, which may be hi saying he’s not in the movie although, when specifically asked for a yes or no about his involvement, he refused to give one (here).

But now in a new interview with Access (below), the star simply said “Never say never” when asked if he’s in the movie.

Now, it’s still not an admission that he is in the movie, but it’s certainly more open-ended than he tried to be previously.

So, what say you all? Check out the interview below and let me know if you think he’s in the movie… I do think he is, but at this stage, it’s hard to know.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
