Andrew Garfield Denies Rumors of His Appearance in SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME
By Movieguide® Staff
Marvel recently announced the upcoming slate of movies for Phase 4, including the newest Spider-Man movie, SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME.
Set for a December 2021 release, rumors around who will appear in the next SPIDER-MAN movie have been abundant. One rumor claims that THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN actor Andrew Garfield would return to Marvel’s newest iteration in the web-slinging franchise alongside Tom Holland.
However, Garfield claimed that these rumors were false.
“I can’t speak for anything else, but for myself. They might be doing something, but I ain’t got a call,” Garfield told MTV’s Josh Horowitz on Tuesday’s episode of the “Happy Sad Confused” podcast.
“I see how often Spider-Man is trending and it’s like people freaking out,” Garfield continued. “And I’m just like, ‘guys, guys, guys’ — I wish I could just be able to speak to everyone and say, ‘I recommend that you chill.'”

However, fans are still adamant that NO WAY HOME includes more than one Spider-Man, especially after Sony’s recent deal with Marvel.
To fans’ credit, both Alfred Molina as Doctor Octopus, who first played the villain in Tobey Maguire’s SPIDER-MAN 2, and Jamie Foxx as Electro, a villain featured in Garfield’s THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, are confirmed for NO WAY HOME.
“I would’ve gotten a call by now. That’s what I’m saying,” Garfield said.
Since his time as Spider-Man, Garfield has appeared in movies dealing with faith, such as HACKSAW RIDGE and SILENCE.
