The following story obviously contains massive spoilers for Spider-Man: No Path Home.
Someone with more free time than I will have to go through the archives and check how many times Andrew Garfield said he wasn’t going to show up in Spider-Man: No Path Home (Throughout 2021, he was promoting three different films: Mainstream, The eyes of Tammy Faye, and Tic..Tic..Boom, and was asked about his canvas sling while doing the press for each). It seems like a lot of work, so maybe someone else can check out how many times Tom Holland said Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire wouldn’t appear in the movie; he would remain the only Spidey. Tobey Maguire hasn’t been in a live-action movie since 2014 Pawn sacrifice, he was therefore spared by the incessant questions of the press circuit (and for our needs, we do not need anyone to count his denials).
Still, it still didn’t seem entirely believable. Of course, Andrew Garfield says Andrew Garfield is not in Spider-Man: No Path Home. But is Andrew Garfield in Spider-Man: No Way Home? Kind of like it could be. Plus, it feels like Tobey Maguire could be. I always felt like you know they could be in the damn movie.
Spider Man the fans were convinced, and were even more convinced when No way home has revealed in his trailers that villains from past franchises, including Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin and Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock, will be back, entering the MCU through some sort of multiversal portal. If the bad guys are coming, surely the heroes are too, right?
But denials kept coming. “Is Andrew Garfield playing Spider-Man again?” Â»The actor may have read his final denial before No way homethe output of, a WIRED semi-automatic entry Youtube video. âOrâ¦ oh no! You almost got me. No. No I’m not. I am not! movie. Because I love them. ”
Another strong denial! But do we buy it? had to enter No way home without being entirely of course one way or another.
Are Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire in Spider-Man: No Path Home?
You bet your ass loves spiders that they are. Guess Andrew Garfield was eager to see what they were gonna do with the next one Spider Man film because … it’s in it!
It takes a while for the Peter Parker versions of Garfield and Maguire to appear in Spider-Man: No Way Home, but from the moment they step into the movie, they’re in it for the long haul. Their roles aren’t just cameos, either – the two erstwhile Peter Parkers share key and important moments with MCU Peter Parker (Holland), with a focus on both plot and character building. There is also a lot of humor! On more than one occasion, everything Spider Man fan will probably laugh aloud at the interaction between the three generations of web-slinger.
Perhaps it could be argued that including these two actors (as different versions of our lead character) is a cheap nostalgia ploy. I have no argument for this being a nostalgia ploy, but guess what, it’s the kind of nostalgia that really works. that of Sam Raimi Spider Man movies set the table for the superhero flicks that fans of the genre adore today – compelling villains coming out of the screen and a lighthearted tone that’s not afraid to mix humor with its action and his drama. Maguire Peter Parker at the time was just old-fashioned and equipped enough to relate to a whole generation of moviegoers.
Garfield’s Peter could be an even more welcome addition. Neither of his two The Incredible Spider-Man the movies were very good, but his portrayal of the character was fantastic; while her Peter was a little cool for school, once he put on the costume and started cracking up, he really did has been the character. It’s so exciting to see him get another shot at what turns out to be a much better movie than either of his first two rounds.
You might be wondering how our two Spider-Men got here? Pretty easy: it was like all bad guys. When Doctor Strange’s fate turns slightly wrong, anyone who knows Peter Parker is Spider-Man (with a few stragglers, like a post-credits scene Venom (Tom Hardy) moved to the MCU for a few vacations. Included in that group was, yes, our two Peter Parkers, who were found when Ned (who now knows how to do Doctor Strange’s magic portals a bit ???) opened portals from his living room and found the two Peter Parkers separated.
This is the part where I say the two old Peter Parkers, both Maguire and Garfield, finally entered Spider-Man: No Path Home is a crazy nerd movie moment that I’ll never forget my first viewing. And that’s because of all the hype; despite all the rumors, a point arrives No way home where in the back of your head you start to think, “Maybe it’s really just Tom Holland?” ”
But then it happens, and when it starts to happen, you to know What is happening. And if you are a Spider Man fan, man that feels good. You can tell by the voice of the alley, at the beginning, that it’s Andrew Garfield. And when he walks through the portal and takes off his mask, I bet your cinema is bursting with applause. Why? Because it’s awesome, that’s why! Maguire’s appearance probably elicited a similar reaction, because, yes, it was awesome.
Listen, sometimes nostalgia can be cheap. It’s true. But it’s Spider-Man: No Way Home, and these appearances, while, yes, playing on nostalgia, have a purpose. Part of that goal is certainly to tickle us back in past memories of good times (and, guess what: mission accomplished!). But the movie does a great job of making these characters more than that, and giving them arcs and characters that are different from one another.
We already know Tom Holland’s Peter is enthusiastic and charismatic. Garfield is always pretty cool, plays a lot on his underdog status as Spidey here; he is always very cool, but even her Peter seems to understand that he hasn’t done as much as his cronies. And does the man to sell his lines! When he saves MJ (Zendaya) from a long fall, you can see the pain in Garfield’s eyes as he remembers the loss of Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) in the same way. Garfield plays this movie like it’s shooting for an Oscar! It’s an amazing thing.
And what more can we stay on Tobey Maguire? For most of us, as good as the other two are, Tobey is Spider Man. And here he is again, after 14 years away from the role, as an older, wiser, and much drier version of the same guy.
Again: is this all a bit cheap? Yes. But let’s also remember that this is a film, in a series of films, about a child who obtains the powers of a spider and becomes a superhero. We don’t need to take this seriously. If we appreciate him just for the fun that he’s clearly trying to give us, we’ll all have a great time. And Spider-Man: No Path Home is a hell of a good time.
