Upcoming Marvel film “Spider-Man: No Way Home” can have appearances from previous and current actors from the franchise. But it received’t have a cameo from Andrew Garfield, so he says.
“For the record … you are not, as of this taping, in or have any knowledge of being in the next Spider-Man movie?” Josh Horowitz, host of the “Happy Sad Confused” podcast, requested the actor in an interview that aired Tuesday.
Garfield, who performed Spider-Man in “The Amazing Spider-Man” and its sequel, “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” set the report straight.
“I did not get a call,” he answered. “Listen, I would have gotten a call by now, that’s what I’m saying. I don’t want to rule anything out. Maybe they want to call me and say, like, ‘Hey, people want this.’”
Rumors of a potential look have been spun after previous “Spider-Man cast members were asked to reprise their roles, including Alfred Molina (Doctor Octopus in 2004’s “Spider-Man 2”) and Jamie Foxx (Electro in 2014’s “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”).
And since Marvel Studios isn’t any stranger to crossovers — 2018’s animated “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” had six spider-powered heroes — to not point out various universes or rewritings of timelines, followers started to invest.
Tom Holland, the franchise’s present Spider-Man, denied the rumors that Garfield and Tobey Maguire (the primary actor to play the superhero in a serious movement image because the star of “Spider-Man,” “Spider-Man 2” and “Spider-Man 3”) have been in “No Way Home.”
“It would be amazing if they were [in the film] because they haven’t told me that yet,” Holland mentioned in an episode of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” “I am Spider-Man, and I’ve read the script from beginning to the end, so it’ll be a miracle if they could have kept that from me. But at the moment, there is no cameo from the two boys.”
Garfield can be making an attempt to debunk these rumors, even when individuals refuse to imagine him.
“Have you ever played the game werewolf or mafia?” Garfield requested Horowitz, referring to video games the place individuals play the roles of misleading characters. “You’re convincing everyone that you are not the Mafia. I feel like I am in a game of [expletive] werewolf or mafia where I’m like, ‘I’m not the werewolf. I promise you I am not the werewolf.’ And everyone is like, ‘You’re the werewolf.’”
Fans should not that simply satisfied. Given Marvel’s repute for secrecy, many imagine the film studio has one thing up its sleeve.
Here are just a few reactions to Garfield’s interview on the “Happy Sad Confused” podcast.
