No Way Home Was A Stupid Idea

During his appearance on The Graham Norton Show, Andrew Garfield talked about reprising his role as Spidey in Spider-Man: No Way Home. The actor actually mentioned how the concept of the movie was “a stupid idea” at first. About being asked to reprise his the actor said:

It’s so cool, yeah, I mean, you know, I finished playing Spider-Man, I’m far too old to be playing Spider-Man now, but they asked me back and it’s the sweetest thing ever. Because I put that to bed, I’m good, I’m done, that’s lovely. And Tom Holland is just the best, so I just kind of became a fan again.

They asked me to do it, and Tobey was doing it and I’m… if Tobey’s doing it then I gotta do it…. He’s my Spider-Man. I would practice his lines in the mirror when I was in drama school.


When Norton asked the actor about how an older version of Spider-Man was a risky move, the actor said:

It was a stupid idea… A really scary thing to attempt, especially just the costume. Thirty-eight year old man in spandex.


He went on to talk about his friendship with No Way Home co-star Tobey Maguire,

We became friends and we snuck into a theater in Los Angeles on opening weekend. We were just, y’know, two middle-aged white guys in baseball hats and masks.
