Andrew Garfield had a rough year in the build-up to Spider-Man: No Way Home‘s release. In keeping with his NDA, he kept denying any involvement with the project, as he, Sony, and Marvel Studios desperately tried to keep the illusion alive that he and Tobey Maguire weren’t in the film. Now that it’s finally out there, many have started a movement to revive their respective franchises to tell the stories that never made it into theaters. Luckily, it seems that Garfield is open to potentially returning.
I mean, yes, definitely open to something if it felt right. Peter and Spider-Man, those characters are all about service, to the greater good and the many. He’s a working-class boy from Queens that knows struggle and loss and is deeply empathetic. I would try to borrow Peter Parker’s ethical framework in that, if there was an opportunity to step back in and tell more of that story, I would have to feel very sure and certain in myself.Andrew Garfield
There are many that are excited to potentially see The Amazing Spider-Man 3 to finally see the light of day. While it’s uncertain they’d want two separate franchises running based on the same character, he’s also become a popular choice to become the focus of Sony’s separate Spider-Man universe, which includes Venom and Morbius. There’s a lot of potential to further explore his story, especially if it spins directly out of No Way Home, and give Garfield more time to showcase the darkness that was hinted at that’s been haunting him since he lost Gwen.
