The biggest mystery about Spider-Man: No Way Home is bothering fans. It is yet to uncover that whether or not Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will join Tom Holland. Meanwhile, Maguire has maintained silence on the matter, Andrew has been going on record talking about the whole anticipation. Of course, he is denying everything at the moment but he is uncovering a lot of things.
Back in 2014, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hit the silver screens and did not perform as expected. The studio in no time stopped everything about the web-slinging superhero that was in production including the next two movies in the franchise that had announced release dates. Later as per sources, it was reported that Garfield’s absence from an event was the reason for his firing from the studio.
According to a report in Hindustan Times, Sony chief Kaz Hirai was supposed to announce The Amazing Spider-Man 3 for a 2017 release in an event. The email read, “Here we are about one hour away from our Gala event and Andrew Garfield decides he doesn’t want to attend. He has a rather scruffy beard and he just wants to be left alone.”
In an interview with the Guardian in 2016, Andrew was asked if he was fired from the role, he replied, “No, I don’t think so. What I’ll proudly say is that I didn’t compromise who I was, I was only ever myself. And that might have been difficult for some people.” Andrew Garfield had earlier spoken about the second Spider-Man film’s poor reception and wasn’t hesitant in being blunt.
In 2014, he told the Daily Beast, “I think what happened was, through the pre-production, production, and post-production, when you have something that works as a whole, and then you start removing portions of it because there was even more of it than was in the final cut, and everything was related.” He continues, “Once you start removing things and saying, No, that doesn’t work, then the thread is broken, and it’s hard to go with the flow of the story.” However, it is still under wraps the Garfield is in Spider-Man: No Way Home or not.
