Andrew Garfield admitted that he had a great time hiding his appearance in ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ from the press. The questions continued after the premiere of the film, since it was in the middle of the promotion of ‘Tick, Tick… Boom!’, so we know quite a bit about the second Spidey’s version of his return. However, the one who had not talked about it until now was the original Peter Parker: Tobey Maguire.
In an interview with the other two Spideys, Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland, he explained how the Marvel bosses convinced him to join the project: “I have to say, I was immediately intrigued. In that conversation, the intent, the love and the celebration of these movies, and what it meant I think to Amy Pascal and Kevin Feige was apparent. For me, when artists or people leading the creative process have a kind of authentic and genuine intention of celebration and love, it was so evident in both of them that I just wanted to join in on that.“.
The actor has admitted that everything was somewhat mysterious to him, and that he was very curious to know how they were going to carry out this return. Fortunately, he is very happy with the result and what it means for his character: “I appreciated what was shared. But really, it was about meeting these people and reviewing what was part of my story and having the opportunity to meet. There are also personal things, which are a kind of resolutions or a way of revising and… I don’t really know how to say it. It’s just to get back to that and I don’t want to say how to close the chapter… But to revisit and have certain resolutions and just join in this loving creative spirit.”.
Maguire has admitted to being a huge fan of Holland’s movies and both of ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’. He also says that he really enjoyed the experience, having fun as well as working on the approach he wanted to give to the character: “I was grateful every day. Really, it was such a rich experience and, as the guys have said, the sharing of something and the brotherhood of it. It was so rich, so emotional. I wasn’t sitting there conceptually thinking about it the whole time, but I had moments where that kind of thing hit me.”.
And he added: “And the way those movies and the characters evolved in those movies are unique, and then putting all of that together, including all of our supervillains, It was pretty wild to witness the vastness of all this history put together and, given what Andrew was saying, it’s this stand-alone story, which is worth it.”
