Andrew Garfield Opens Up About Playing Spider-Man And The End Of His Trilogy

Andrew Garfield was tapped by Sony Pictures to portray the friendly-neighborhood Spider-Man for a planned film universe with 2012’s ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ and its 2014 sequel. Following poor reviews and a dismal box office performance, the sequel ended his career as the web-slinger. That is until he appeared in the 2021 movie ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ alongside fellow Spidey actors Tobey Maguire and Tom Holland.

In an interview with GQ, Garfield opens up about his time as Peter Parker and how the canceled third film in his series affected him.

“I don’t know if I had an expectation of doing more,” he said. “I was very open to it being whatever it was meant to be. But there was an undone feeling. Like, What was that experience about? And how do I close that circle in my living room on my own? And I was doing that – and then it was like that classic thing, when you’re getting over a relationship, and you’re first starting to really feel free and untethered from that thing – the person knows to call the hour after the first good night’s sleep you’ve had.”

Garfield continued, “But doing [No Way Home] was really just kind of beautiful. I got to treat it like a short film about Spider-Man with buddies. The pressure was off of me. It was all on Tom’s shoulders. Like, it’s his trilogy. And me and Tobey were there to provide support and have as good a time as possible, actually, and be as inventive, imaginative, and kind of dumb as possible. Y’know, between the three of us, I was like, Oh shit, this is going to be interesting. You have three people who feel real ownership over this character. But it was really, like, brotherhood first, I think. And I think that comes through in what we shot.”

Following the success of ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home,’ fans took to social media to ask for Garfield to return for a third movie which he has stated he would be interested in.
