Spider-Man: No Way Home is on a victory run and has already broken many box office records. One of the highlights of the movie was the involvement of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, both returning as Spider-Man.
Now, Garfield has shared that he enjoyed lying about his role in the movie. The actor was constantly bombed with questions about his involvement before the movie, all of which he turned down.
Speaking in an interview with The Wrap, the actor said, “ It was stressful, I’m not gonna lie. It was rather stressful but also weirdly enjoyable. It was like this massive game of Werewolf that I was playing with journalists and with people guessing, and it was very fun.”
He also added that he kept telling himself that he hated lying and that he is a bad liar, but he kept framing it as a game and kept imagining himself as a fan.
Garfield reprised his role as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in No Way Home and was seen together with Tom Holland’s and Maguire’s Spider-Man in the movie. He played the web slinger in Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man and its sequel.
With Doctor Strange botching a spell in the movie which opens the world to other multiverses, both Maguire’s and Garfield’s characters made their entry into the MCU. Some notable villains from the past movies such as Alfred Molina as Doc Ock, Jamie Foxx as Electro, and Willem Dafoe as the Green Goblin / Norman Osborn also made it into the movie.
While Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man movies were not particularly well received, with it failing to live up to its potential, Garfield's casting as the friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man was one of its positives.
