WATCH: Corridor Crew say Andrew Garfield Spider-man footage is not CGI trickery…

October 5th, 2021 by Marc Comments

Ok, so you may recall a while back a piece of footage appeared online that claimed to be of Andrew Garfield filming on Spider-man: No Way Home.

The footage, which we aren’t going to show here but can be found here, is only a couple of seconds long and shows Garfield, with different hair than he had in his Amazing Spider-man movies and looking older than he did in them, leaning against a bar, apparently talking to someone off-screen.

The footage went viral and Garfield himself even denied it was real on TV. Then, YouTuber Alex Cerrato came out and said that he trolled the internet and created the footage, writing: “I made this video yesterday during lunch. Obviously it was never going to fool anyone who really knows about VFX, but just having the average person believe it was enough.”

So, end of story? Footage is fake, move on?

Well, not so fast.

Some people came out and said that Cerrato was lying and that HIS video claiming the footage was fake, was fake itself.

Enter Corridor Crew.

This team of YouTubers work in the world of movie SFX and have a great channel that breaks down effects work, re-does shots and basically lives and breathes CGI and stunt work and their new video, below, breaks down the footage of Garfield and just how hard it would be to do something like this.

Now, you should watch the video as these guys are very fun and do great work, but their conclusion? The Garfield footage is not a deepfake and the video which says it is from Cerrato IS.

Now, obviously, they aren’t confirming this is from Spider-man: No Way Home, but they are making it clear that whatever the footage is, it’s almost certainly real.

Check out the full breakdown below and let me know your thoughts, guys,

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….
