WARNING: This article contains SPOILERS for Spider-Man: No Way Home
While filming Spider-Man: No Way Home, Andrew Garfield revealed that Tom Holland, who plays Peter Parker in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, was jealous of his Spider-Man suit.
The latest installment in the MCU’s Spider-Man series has broken box office records, and Spider-Man: No Way Home is Marvel’s Phase 4’s most financially successful picture, grossing more than twice as much as Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
The film has also received positive reviews from critics, with many fans hailing it as one of the best MCU films and the best Spider-Man picture to date.
Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man suit
The much-anticipated return of Garfield and Tobey Maguire as their respective versions of Peter Parker, brought to the same universe by a miscast spell from Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange, was shown in Spider-Man: No Way Home. The two actors previously portrayed Spider-Man in non-MCU Spider-Man films, with Maguire’s trilogy retaining a special place in fans’ hearts.
Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock, Jamie Foxx’s Electro, and Willem Dafoe’s Norman Osborn / Green Goblin were among the performers who returned to the series. In Spider-Man: No Way Home, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man fights through loss to save the villains before returning them to their respective realities with the support and advice of the other Spider-Men.
Garfield has now revealed in an interview with Variety that Holland was jealous of his Spider-Man outfit. The actor was discussing one of the many differences between Holland and Maguire’s versions of the role while reflecting on the experience of working with them. Garfield explained that Holland’s jealousy came from the fact that Garfield’s costume allowed him to use his phone thanks to zippers that allowed him to simply remove his hands. Holland, on the other hand, had to access his phone using his nose.
Check out the rest of the actor’s comments after the jump:
“Tom was jealous because I have little zippers in my suit that I can get my hands out of very easily. To work his phone, he had to use his nose because he couldn’t access his hands.”
Garfield’s observations will please fans who are anxious to understand every detail about the Spider-interactions Men’s and differences. Holland’s Spider-Man costume has sparked a lot of debate among Spider-Man fans, as well as some controversy.
Fans are split over whether his Iron-Spider suit, which was constructed for him by Tony Stark in previous films, is too high-tech and out of character for the character’s comic book origins. However, as Spider-Man: No Way Home comes to a close, Holland’s Spidey constructs his own suit, returning the character to his roots and bringing him closer to Garfield and Maguire’s versions.
