Marvel Blog True Believers, we’ve got a mystery worthy of the Daily Bugle on our hands, so get your cameras ready and keep your ears open. According to an online interview with Andrew Garfield conducted by Josh Horowitz, Garfield says that he actually has not been called about making a return to the role of Spider-Man for the upcoming sequel: Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Spider-Man No More?
In the interview, Horowitz says that he doesn’t want to “ruin anything” about the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home movie, which many have speculated may be something of a live-action Into the Spider-Verse, allowing not only the MCU’s Peter Parker, Tom Holland, a starring role, but also featuring the return of not one but two Spideys!
For months now, there have been rumors swirling that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, the actors who played the role in the original Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy and the more recent Amazing Spider-Man movies, respectively, will be returning to the franchise.
“I did not get a call,” Garfield stated unequivocally, perhaps implying that the casting department at Marvel Studios is reliant on contacting talent via email, or perhaps implying he’s just a wolf-spider in sheep’s clothing…
This is not the first time the rumor of a live-action Spider-Verse has been denied by one of the actors in the movie. For example, Holland has already denied that No Way Home will feature multiple web-heads.
That being said, Holland (and co-stars Jacob Batalon and Zendaya) have already given us some misinformation about the upcoming feature, with all three stars delivering a different potential title – each one as inaccurate as the last. Is it possible that Garfield’s denial that he’s reprising the role is just more fake news?
Which Spider Is Which?
In addition to rumors of returning Spider-Folks, there’s also been much ado about the return of villains from the previous movies (and perhaps Doc Ock himself, Alfred Molina, was a bit too liberal on what he shared about the upcoming movie).
Perhaps J. Jonah Jameson (J.K. Simmons) will get to the bottom of all this fake news when Spider-Man: No Way Home arrives in December. Until then, we’ve got nothing but time for speculation on our hands! Will Garfield ever appear in the third movie in a Spider-Man trilogy? Let us know what you think is afoot with the (former?) webslinger in the comment section.
