Andrew Garfield Reveals The Only Reason He Returned To ‘Spider-Man’
Andrew Garfield has revealed that he only returned to the Spider-Man franchise for No Way Home because Tobey Maguire had agreed too as well.
In a new interview with Deadline alongside co-stars Maguire and Tom Holland, Garfield revealed that when Marvel asked him if he would return for Spider-Man: No Way Home, he waited to see if Maguire had agreed to do so as well.
“I was just waiting to see if Tobey was going to do it, and if Tobey was going to do it, then I was like, ‘Well, I have no choice,’ you know? I follow Tobey to the ends of the Earth. I’m a lemming for Tobey,” he said.
“It wasn’t like they were just asking us to come and say hi and then leave again but actually have our presence being in service to Tom, being in service to Tom’s journey and where he is as Peter Parker,” he added.
Elsewhere, in the interview, Maguire, who starred in the original Spider-Man trilogy from director Sam Raimi in the early 2000s, said he was impressed with the pitch from producer Amy Pascal and Marvel Studio president Kevin Fiege.
“In that conversation the intention, the kind of love and celebration of these movies and what it meant, I think, to Amy and Kevin was apparent,” he said.
