Andrew Garfield‘s portrayal of the iconic webslinger was one of the most divisive films at the time, but now times have changed and fans want to see Garfield in the Spidey suit again. The “Tick, Tick… Boom!” actor recently appeared in the biggest film of 2021, by which I mean he played the role of Peter Parker aka Spider-Man again in “Spider-Man: No Way Home” alongside Tobey Maguire‘s Peter Parker and Tom Holland‘s Peter Parker. Three generations of Spider-Man in one scene together has been a dream come true for many fans and now they want more Amazing Spider-Man films, which has been a trending topic since the release of the film. Garfield has always been a great Spider-Man and Peter Parker, it was just the mishandling of the story that didn’t quite land with the fans in the past but the fans are ready to give Sony another chance to redeem themselves by making a great Amazing Spider-Man 3 film, and now it looks like Garfield may be warming up to the idea too.
Garfield first took on the mantle of Spider-Man in the first Amazing Spider-Man film which came out in 2012 with some good reviews, but it didn’t quite leave the mark as Sam Raimi and Maguire’s first Spider-Man film did. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 came out in 2014 and it really pissed the fans off because of its overstuffed story and Sony’s need to make the Sinister Six happen. After that, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was out of the question and Garfield moved on to other projects showing the audience his brilliant acting chops in films like “Silence” and “Tick, Tick… Boom!“.
In an interview with Variety, Garfield was asked many questions about his decision to return as the webslinger, but the most important one was “Would you be open to coming back to the character?” and his answer is likely going to make the fans very happy because he said, “I mean, yes, definitely open to something if it felt right.” So, Garfield is open to the idea of returning as the web-slinger which means half of the Spidey fan’s wishes have come true and the other half is up to Sony. Read the full quote by Garfield below:
“I mean, yes, definitely open to something if it felt right. Peter and Spider-Man, those characters are all about service, to the greater good and the many. He’s a working-class boy from Queens that knows struggle and loss and is deeply empathetic. I would try to borrow Peter Parker’s ethical framework in that, if there was an opportunity to step back in and tell more of that story, I would have to feel very sure and certain in myself.”
The return of Garfield’s Spider-Man in No Way Home undoubtedly showed the fans what they were missing as his character delivered the most powerful scene in the whole film and left the audience wiping away their tears. The actor is without any doubt a great Spider-Man, and it would be a dream come true if we get to see him again dawning the Spider-Man suit in his own third Amazing Spider-Man film.
