‘I did not get a call’: Andrew Garfield swears he’s not in next ‘Spider-Man’ movie
Upcoming Marvel movie “Spider-Man: No Way Home” will have appearances from past and present actors in the franchise. But it won’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 Unhappy Confused” podcast , requested the actor in an job interview that aired Tuesday.
Garfield, who have played Spider-Man in “The Amazing Spider-Man” and its follow up, “The Amazing Spider-Man two, ” set the record straight.
“I did not get a call, ” he answered. “Listen, I might have gotten a contact by now, that’s what I am saying. I don’t want to guideline anything out. Maybe they wish to call me and say, like, ‘Hey, people want this. ’”
Gossips of a possible appearance were spun after past “Spider-Man cast members were questioned 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 is no stranger to crossovers — 2018’s animated “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” acquired six spider-powered heroes — not to mention alternative universes or rewritings of timelines, followers began to speculate.
Tom Holland, the franchise’s current Spider-Man, denied the gossips that will Garfield and Tobey Maguire (the first actor to try out the superhero in a main motion picture as the star of “Spider-Man, ” “Spider-Man 2” and “Spider-Man 3”) had been in “No Way Home. ”
“It would be incredible if they were [in the film] because they haven’t told me that yet, ” Netherlands said in an episode associated with “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. ” “I am Spider-Man, and I’ve read the script from starting to the end, so it’ll become a miracle if they could have held that from me. Yet at the moment, there is no cameo through the two boys. ”
Garfield is also aiming to debunk those rumors, even if people refuse to believe your pet.
“Have a person ever played the game werewolf or mafia? ” Garfield asked Horowitz, referring to video games where people play the roles of deceptive character types. “You’re convincing everyone that you will be not the Mafia. I feel like I am in a sport of [expletive] werewolf or mafia where I’m like, ‘I’m not really the werewolf. I promise you I am not the particular werewolf. ’ And everyone is like, ‘You’re the werewolf. ’”
Fans are not that easily convinced. Given Marvel’s reputation for secrecy, many believe the movie studio has something up its sleeve.
