Once a Spider-Man, always a Spider-Man!
After portraying the webslinger in the two previous franchises, Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire found a covert way to partake in the opening night of “Spider-Man: No Way Home” in order to support the film’s current hero Tom Holland.
Spoiler alert: Garfield and Maguire appear in the new chapter and didn’t attend the official premiere so as not to tip off fans prior to the film’s release, noted Variety. So the two actors took matters into their own hands to see the final product.
“I still can’t believe it happened,” Garfield told Entertainment Tonight. “I snuck into a theater on opening night and just watched with my baseball cap on and my mask. In fact, I was also with Tobey. Me and Tobey snuck into a theater together and no one knew we were there. It was just a really beautiful thing to share together.”
Garfield also reflected on the close bond he has with Maguire and Holland after all taking on the role of Peter Parker in the various franchises over the last two decades.
He added: "And to find a brotherhood with Tobey as well, and with Tom, and the fact that we do share a very unique experience.”
Maguire was first to star as the superhero in the original 2002 film “Spider-Man,” and followed it up with “Spider-Man 2” in 2004 and “Spider-Man 3” in 2007.
Garfield took over the mantle in the 2012 film “The Amazing Spider-Man” and reprised the role in 2014’s “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.”
Holland first debuted as Spider-Man in “Captain America: Civil War” in 2016, before starring in the standalone film “Spider-Man: Homecoming” in 2017. Appearances in two “Avengers” films followed before returning to the titular franchise in “Spider-Man: Far From Home” in 2019.
Since hitting theaters on December 17th, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” has earned more than $660 million and is set to become the sixth-highest grossing film at the domestic box office, per Forbes.
Why settle for one Spider-Man, when you can have three?!
