Garfield Shoots Down “Spider-Man” Rumors

Originally published on Dark Horizons by Garth Franklin

We know that Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus and Jamie Foxx’s Electro from the pre-MCU incarnations of “Spider-Man” will be coming to the upcoming Tom Holland-led “Spider-Man: No Way Home”.

However one of the most persistent rumors regarding the film has been that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will reprise their versions of Peter Parker for the project.

Sitting down with Josh Horowitz to promote the new film “Mainstream,” he was asked straight up about his involvement in the movie. The response, which you see below, is a fairly convincing one that he’s not involved at all:

“There’s nothing to ruin! … Listen, I can’t speak for anyone else but for myself. Like, they might be doing something. But I ain’t got a call. … I did not get a call. Listen, I would have gotten a call by now, that’s all I’m saying.”

Of course, fans have quickly responded, saying as a professional actor he’s lying and is under NDAs preventing him from talking. Yet there has been no tangible evidence of his involvement in the project to date, only online speculation.

Whatever the truth is, we’ll find out when “Spider-Man: No Way Home” opens in cinemas on December 17th.
