Andrew Garfield Gets Emotional About Holland & Maguire Spider-Man Scenes

While filming scenes for Spider-Man: No Way Home, Andrew Garfield talks about the emotional experience of playing the “middle brother.” No Way Home is the eighth live-action Spider-Man film since the turn of the millennium and the third solo Spider-Man feature in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

It was a huge box office hit, becoming the first pandemic picture to gross $1 billion globally in less than two weeks and topping the US box office for three weekends in a row. While it remains to be seen whether Spider-Man: No Way Home can topple fellow MCU crossover success Avengers: Endgame, it has already entered the top ten for all-time domestic box office at #8, surpassing 2012’s The Avengers.

The plot follows Tom Holland’s Peter Parker as he approaches Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) for a spell that will allow the world to forget about his secret identity. The spell, however, goes awry; bringing in characters from all over the world who know Peter Parker is Spider-Man; including former Spider-Man movie villains Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe); Doc Ock (Alfred Molina), Sandman (Thomas Haden Church); Lizard (Rhys Ifans), and Electro (Jamie Foxx).

Fortunately, the enchantment has summoned two additional Peter Parkers to help: Tobey Maguire from Sam Raimi’s 2002 Spider-Man trilogy and Andrew Garfield’s The Amazing Spider-Man hero.

Andrew Garfield expressed his gratitude to ET for giving him the opportunity to record the scenes with all three Spider-Man actors together. He talked about how inspiring it was to be in the suit with “my actual Spider-Man hero, Tobey Maguire, and the brilliant, incredibly talented, heartfelt, funny, good, sweet, perfect Spider-Man of Tom Holland.”

Andrew Said It Was Like Older Brother, Middle Brother Are Longing To Protect Their Younger Brother

Garfield was ecstatic at the prospect of being “the middle brother” in this de facto family and finding a means to express himself through the Peter Parker character’s inherent loneliness. Read the whole of his quote below:

“The fact that I get to be one of those people wearing the suit next to my actual Spider-Man hero, Tobey Maguire, and the brilliant, incredibly talented, heartfelt, funny, good, sweet, perfect Spider-Man of Tom Holland, and I get to be the middle brother, and I get to be in awe of my older brother and in full longing to protect my younger brother … And also, there’s something spiritual that kinda happened and happens, and that we were exploring in the film, which is like, archetypically, the character is so alone, the isolation, that’s an important part of the character in terms of the canon of Spider-Man, for me in a way.”

This was an especially poignant instalment in the MCU Spider-Man “Homecoming” trilogy, putting Tom Holland’s Peter Parker through the wringer and irreversibly altering his life. Garfield, on the other hand, got a chance to show off his acting abilities in a pivotal scene, where he clearly put this incredible on-set emotion to good use.

Garfield’s huge payout came in a sequence where he saves Zendaya’s MJ from falling, making up for his disastrous Gwen Stacy gaffe in TASM 2. It was a highly felt moment that touched many spectators.

The emotional impact of Spider-Man: No Way Home on the actors is only matched by the impact on the audience. There’s no denying that seeing these two legendary and adored Spider-Man actors together, two of them resurrecting characters that were probably never going to return to the screen, is a joy. Many would agree with Garfield’s sentiments that his, Holland’s, and Maguire’s moments actually felt like a family coming together, and many would agree with Garfield’s sentiments that his, Holland’s, and Maguire’s scenes truly felt like a family coming together.
