Andrew Garfield On Spider-Man: No Way Home Rumors -- "No Matter What I Say, I'm F**ked"
"It's important for me to say on the record that this is not something I'm aware I am involved in."
Andrew Garfield has responded once again to the ongoing rumors and reports that he will appear in Spider-Man: No Way Home, saying that is "not something I'm aware I am involved in."
Speaking to Variety, Garfield said it doesn't really even matter what he says on the subject because people will believe what they want to believe. "No matter what I say, I'm f**ked," he said. Garfield acknowledged that he understands why people are excited about the idea of the multiverse bringing together his Spider-Man and Tobey Maguire's to join Tom Holland.
"I understand why people are freaking out about the concept of that because I'm a fan as well. You can't help but imagine scenes and moments of, 'Oh, my God, how f**king cool would it be if they did that?'" he said. "But it's important for me to say on the record that this is not something I'm aware I am involved in. But I know I'm not going to be able to say anything that will convince anyone that I don't know what's happening... It's either going to be really disappointing for people or it's going to be really exciting."
People felt emboldened to believe Garfield and Maguire may be in No Way Home after the film's first trailer introduced Alfred Molina's Doctor Octopus through a rift in the multiverse that Doctor Strange created. Jamie Foxx's Electro, another Spider-Man character from a different Spider-Man universe, is rumored to appear in No Way Home as well.
Before this, Garfield gave fans some hope that his Spider-Man may appear in No Way Home, saying people should "never say never" about the possibility of it happening. Before that, Garfield said on the Happy Sad Confused podcast that he hadn't received a call about appearing in No Way Home yet. That being said, Garfield refused to give a straight answer when asked to reply "yes or no" about if he's in the movie or not.
In other news, Holland himself recently teased that the first No Way Home trailer is only the "tip of the iceberg" in terms of what to expect. "You have no idea what else is to come. I am so excited to share more with you guys," Holland said.
No Way Home releases in theaters on December 17. The announcement trailer crushed Avengers: Endgame's record for most views in its first 24 hours.
