WATCH: Andrew Garfield’s response to being in Spider-man: No Way Home seems a little… guarded

May 4th, 2021 by Marc Comments

MTV’s Josh Horowitz sat down for a chat with the best Peter Parker/Spider-man actor (come at me), Andrew Garfield, recently and during the conversation, he asked him about his supposed involvement in Spider-man: No Way Home.

For those not in the know, we know that Alfred Molina is returning as Doc Ock to the franchise along with Jamie Foxx as Electro and there’s been a million stories and rumors since then that the movie will be a sort of live-action Into the Spider-verse with past Spider-men Toby Maguire and Andrew Garfield reprising their roles as the character from other realities.

This is, of course, also fed by the fact that, shortly after No Way Home arrives this Christmas, Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness will be released… so, you know, multiverses.

When asked about the rumours, Horowitz says he doesn’t want to ruin anything and Garfield replies: “There isn’t anything to ruin, bro! I had to quickly cut you off. There’s nothing to ruin.” 

However, Garfield also reveals that, covertly, he’s been watching all the rumours but wishes he could just tell everyone it just ain’t so: “It’s so crazy. Dude, it’s f***ing hilarious to me. I do have this Twitter account and I see how often Spider-Man is trending and it’s people freaking out about a thing. I wish I could be able to speak to everyone and just say, ‘I recommend that you chill.'”

However, and interestingly, when pushed, Garfield didn’t expressly say that no, he’s not in the movie, but said: “I would’ve gotten a call by now, that’s all I’m saying. I don’t want to ruin anything. Maybe they’re going to call me and say, ‘Hey, people want this!’ Maybe it’s a market research thing…”

You can watch the clip below and it’s all very warm-hearted, but I hope he’s lying… because he’s my favourite Spidey and really want to know what happened after he lifted that manhole cover at the end of Amazing Spider-man 2.

What about you all?

Check out the clip below and let us know your thoughts.

UPDATE: In another interview with ET, when asked the same question, he used the Werewolf analogy again… so, that sounds liked a rehearsed answer to me. Just sayin’.

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….
