This article contains spoilers.

For much of last year, Andrew Garfield tried his best to deny his involvement in the new Spider-Man movie, Spider-Man: No Way Home. There was even a leaked image of Tobey Maguire and Garfield in Spider-Man suits in front of a blue screen that was promptly deleted. Garfield almost convinced us that he was not going to be a part of the third installment of the Tom Holland Spider-Man series of films. He was, after all, pretty busy with other releases including The Eyes of Tammy Faye and Tick, Tick…Boom! He did his best to ensure the fans could have an authentic movie viewing experience.

But now that the movie is out, and everyone knows he reprises his role as Spider-Man along with Tobey Maguire, he can finally share his experience of being a superhero again. "I got this call from Amy Pascal and Kevin Feige and Jon Watts with this idea. It was immediately undeniable. It sounded incredibly fun, incredibly spiritual—trippy and thematically interesting," he gushed in an interview with Variety about his role. "We talked a lot about mentorship. We talked a lot about brotherhood and about what it is to be the older brother, younger brother, and the middle brother."


Speaking of brotherhood, Garfield shared the fun times they had together as three generations of Spider-Men coming together. "It was hilarious because it’s like just three ordinary dudes who were just actors just hanging out," he said about seeing each other for the first time in the Spidey suits. "But then also, you just become a fan and say, 'Oh my god we’re all together in the suits and we’re doing the pointing thing!'" He added that there were lighthearted moments on set when they would compare what worked for each of them. "Tom was jealous because I have little zippers in my suit that I can get my hands out of very easily. To work his phone, he had to use his nose because he couldn’t access his hands," he recalled.

But they also had deeper conversations and discussed each of their experiences with the character. "To have Amy Pascal there, who has seen through nine movies, including 'Spider-Verse.' It was a revelatory experience for her, realizing how much life and time she’d given to this character. That was beautiful and profound." He also revealed that when he talks to Maguire and Holland in the movie, it was improvised. "That was just me loving them," he revealed.


With his appearance in the movie, Garfield has opened multiple doors for future opportunities taking the Spider-Man franchise forward. No Way Home which was released in December has been running successfully, breaking one box office record at a time. While there are more Spider-Man films down the pipeline, 38-year-old Garfield is currently in contention for an Oscar in the Best Actor category for his performance in Tick, Tick…Boom! Not only did he reveal himself as Spider-Man this year, but this musical also revealed that the actor was a singer and dancer as well.
