Andrew Garfield Wants To Return As Spider-Man In Future Movies

Andrew Garfield said he would be open to playing Spider-Man again in any future movies. After Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man4 was abandoned, Garfield took over Tobey Maguire’s web-slinging role via Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man. The film was largely well-received by both critics and fans. The poor reception of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) resulted in Sony/Marvel Studios’ agreement to reboot Garfield in the MCU with Tom Holland.

Despite Garfield’s numerous claims, Marvel Studios and Sony’s No Way Home return Maguire and Peter Parker/Spider-Men. No Way Home is the sequel to Far from Home (2019). It sees Peter Holland seeking Doctor Strange’s assistance in forgetting Spider-Man. Following the spell, things go sour. Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin, Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock, and Jamie Foxx’s Electro are involved. Maguire and Garfield show up to aid Holland in their fight against their respective villains. They also learn a lot about “great strength” as well as “great accountability.” However, most people agree that Garfield is the star of the show. The internet is clamoring for Garfield to return as Spider-Man in more films.

Garfield opened up about the film’s experience since No Way Home was released for the first time. The actor spoke with Variety about his return to Spider-Man, and how it felt to redeem his character commercially and narratively. Garfield answered whether he would be open to playing the role again if it felt right. You can read the full quote below.

“I mean, yes. I would be open to anything if it felt right. Peter and Spider-Man are both about service to the greater good. He is a Queens boy of the working class who knows the struggles and losses and is deeply compassionate. If Peter Parker offered me the opportunity to tell more, I would be willing to adopt his ethical framework.

Garfield also spoke about how thankful he was to tie up loose ends for Peter. The basis for Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and Sony Executive Amy Pascal’s No Way Home pitch/initial discussion with Garfield was closure. Garfield said that what would they do if his character was put into the MCU and confronted with a younger or older version of himself? In No Way Home, Garfield discusses how his inability to save Gwen haunts him. He also discusses how he became a better Spider-Man after that tragic event. Garfield saves Holland’s love interest during the final battle. This is how he would have wanted for Gwen.

No way Home reminds viewers that Garfield is a Peter Parker quality and Spider-Man’s best friend. It also gives Garfield and his character closure. Fans want to see more of him in The Amazing Spider-Man 3 or other parts of Sony’s Spider-Man Universe (fighting Tom Hardy’s Venom and Jared Leto’s Morbius). It could tarnish his bookend in no Way Home. Many were concerned that his role in Spider-Man would come across as pompous. However, it is fan service, and it’s the best. It honors and legitimizes the past. It would be great to see more.
