Tom Holland Regrets Not Contacting Andrew Garfield After He Took Over Spider-Man Role

Tom Holland revealed he look back with a little bit of clarity and regret is that I never called Garfield when I took over as Spider-Man.

Tom Holland has recently revealed that he regrets not calling Andrew Garfield after he took over as Spider-Man. Andrew starred as the titular superhero in 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man and its 2014 sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2 before Tom replaced him in 2017.

Meanwhile, in the recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Tom said he always regretted never contacting Andrew after he took over the role. However, last year’s movie, Spider-Man: No Way Home, was their chance to ‘make amends.’ “Something I can look back on now with a little bit of clarity and regret is that I never called Garfield when I took over as Spider-Man,” said Holland. “Had someone said to me after my second movie that I was done and this other kid was taking over, I would’ve been heartbroken.”

The Spider-Man star went on saying, “So looking back, I wish I had the chance to make amends with him, but this film was our opportunity.” “It was not only an opportunity for him to make peace with the character and the studio, but it was also an opportunity for me and him to have this moment where we see we could share this thing. The look on his face when he saves Zendaya aka MJ is totally genuine, and I’m really proud of him.”

Meanwhile, Tobey Maguire, who portrayed Peter Parker and his alter-ego in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy, also returned for the recent movie and Tom was full of praise for him and Andrew. Tobey explained, “I said to Maguire and Garfield, “Thank you, thank you, thank you for doing this. Thank you for being here. Thank you for elevating Spider-Man in the ways that you have. Thank you for being so gracious and allowing me to share this with you. Thank you for taking a leap of faith and coming back.”

However, Tobey hadn’t acted in nearly 10 years, ‘so we all embraced each other, and we were all crying because it meant so much to us.’ “And Jon Watts, Amy Pascal, and the writers saw this moment between the three of us and we’re like, ‘Brilliant! Well, now we know how they’re going to say goodbye to each other.’ So essentially, we just reshot that very real moment between the three of us.'”
