Los Angeles, May 5, 2021: Andrew Garfield has quashed all the rumors of him returning as Spider-Man in the upcoming Tom Holland starrer "Spider-Man: No Way Home". The rumors have been making noise that the upcoming sequel of Spider-Man will feature multiple Spider-Men including Tobey Maguire as well as Garfield, who played the hero in two Amazing Spider-Man films from 2012-14.
And now, after months of sitting back and observing, Garfield put all the talks to rest. "I can't speak for anything else, but for myself. They might be doing something, but I ain't got a call", Garfield told MTV's Josh Horowitz on Tuesday's episode of the Happy Sad Confused podcast (via THR
"I see how often Spider-Man is trending and it's like people freaking out", said Garfield. "And I'm just like, 'guys, guys, guys' — I wish I could just be able to speak to everyone and say, 'I recommend that you chill", he added.
Despite Garfield's denials, there are a lot of indications that No Way Home will feature multiple Spider-Men. After all, the film is confirmed to feature Alfred Molina as Doctor Octopus, the villain he played in Maguire's Spider-Man 2. Jamie Foxx is also confirmed as Electro, a villain from Garfield's The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
