Tobey McGuire and Andrew Garfield Talk Spider-Man Return
For those of us who have loved super hero movies, even before the MCU rose to dominance, there was perhaps nothing as cool and satisfyingly as seeing the three Spider-Men team team up in Spider-Man: Now Way Home.
Through the mayhem of the multiverse, Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland were able to fight some of Spider-Man’s greatest foes- together!
The scene of the three web-slingers zipping around the Statue of Liberty is one of the most iconic images in Marvel history, and certainly something that fans of the character will always remember.
If you are a Spider-Man fan and want to take a deep dive into how No Way Home came together, Titan Books is releasing Spider-Man No Way Home: The Official Movie Special just for you.
This inside look into the making of Spider-Man: No Way Home, features interviews with Zendaya (MJ), Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange) and all three Spider-Men! Here is a sneak preview of what they had to say.
How did you feel when you got the call about this movie?
When they called initially, I was like finally! [Laughs] I got the call and was immediately open about coming to do this. Not without nerves – you know, “What will this look like and what will the experience be?” But to get to show up with beautiful, talented, creative people and play together? It’s just like, “Yes!” It’s fun and exciting.
How did it feel to put on the Spider-Man suit again?
The suit can definitely be a challenge at time when you’ve got to get into the full thing. But then, once you’re comfortable, there is something fun about it. As an actor, it helps when you get in your costume. You begin to feel it more and embody it more… You start to feel pretty at home pretty swiftly.
How did you find working with you fellow Spider-Men, Tom Holland and Tobey Maguire?
I think myself, Tom, and Tobey came into this going, “Well, how’s this gonna go?” I’d had lovely interactions with Tom and Tobey previously; not big hangouts, but really sweet moments at parties or events – or as sweet and deep as those things can go, which is not very! But I got a really good vibe from Tom and a really good vibe from Tobey. So I was excited to get to know these guys more and to see what we could create together.
We all came with our own history and with our own relationship to the character in our own films. I think what really was wonderful, and how it unfolded very early on, was Tobey and I felt very aligned and very clear about what our intentions were for being there. Ultimately, it was to serve Tom as an actor and, as characters, serving Tom’s Peter Parker. I think from that place, everything flowed. It enabled Tobey and me to have a bit more fun maybe than we would’ve had if we were the ones fully carrying the story.
Could They Return?
One of the biggest topic’s of discussion since the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, has been whether or not Tobey McGuire or Andrew Garfield would reprise their roles again in the MCU.
With the multiverse now firmly established in MCU lore, and the Secret Wars on the horizon, it seems that either actor’s Spider-Man could seamlessly fit into the MCU’s overarching story. When asked about a possible return, McGuire seemed interested.
“I love these films and I love all of the different series. If these guys called me and said, ‘Would you show up tonight to hang out and goof around?’ or ‘Would you show up to do this movie or read a scene or do a Spider-Man thing?’, it would be a ‘yes!’ Because why wouldn’t I want to do that?
Based on the fan reaction to his character’s return, and the actor’s enthusiasm to put back on the suit, it looks like we may see McGuire’s Spider-Man again after all!
