Andrew Garfield explains how he treated No Way Home as a short film about Spider-Man and his companions


Andrew Garfield has revealed his particular take on the Marvel multiversal crossover we saw in Spider-Man: No Way Home.

During an interview with GQ, the Spider-Man actor explained how he treated No Way Home as a short film about three Spider-buddies.

“Do [No Way Home] it was really beautiful,” he said. “I was able to treat it like a short film about Spider-Man with friends. The pressure was taken off me. It was all on Tom’s shoulders. It’s his trilogy. And Tobey and I were there to be supportive and have the best time, really, and be as inventive and imaginative and kind of goofy as possible.”

“It was really, like, brotherhood first, I think.”

It’s no longer a secret that No Way Home brought together the three Spider-Mans for the first time on the big screen: Tom Holland, Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire.

“Between the three of us I was like, ‘oh m***’, this is going to be interesting,” he added. “You have three people who own this character. But I think the first thing was the brotherhood. And I think that’s reflected in what we shot.”

Following his appearance in No Way Home, Garfield has already hinted that he’d be open to playing the superhero again in the future. Whether or not that will happen remains to be seen, but spider fans seem to be on board with the idea following a new wave of support for his return.

“I don’t know if I had the expectation to do more,” he said. “I was very open to it being whatever it had to be. But there was a feeling of not having done anything. Like, what was that experience like? And how do I close that loop on my own? And then it was like that classic feeling when you’re getting over a relationship, and you’re starting to feel really free and untethered.”
