There has been a lot of talk over the past few months about Spider-Man: No Way Home, for various reasons. One of the biggest reasons has been that Tom Holland, Andrew Garfield, and Tobey Maguire – all three Spider-Man‘s – are in the film.
The three have been supporting this movie with such grace and passion, that you can’t help but find a way to feel love for them all (yes, even Tobey for us, at times). The three reunited for a talk with Deadline about the franchise.
The three covered a wide variety of topics about the movie, including how it came together. He was asked to meet with producers Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal. Kudos to him for not being afraid of that. If Kevin Feige summons you, you have every reason to be afraid. Well, and excited.
“In that conversation the intention, the kind of love and celebration of these movies and what it meant, I think, to Amy and Kevin was apparent,” Tobey said about being approached to join the franchise. “And to me, when artists or, you know, people who are steering the creative process have a kind of authentic, genuine intent of celebration and love, it just was so apparent in both of them, that, I don’t know, I just wanted to join that. And I’m a big fan of Tom and those movies and Andrew. So, it was definitely intriguing, but yes, I was also going, ‘well, what are we going to do? And that was a bit mysterious.”
And the truth (from this writers POV) is that if Tobey was involved, it wouldn’t be complete with Andrew involved. Andrew talked about how he became involved.
“I was just waiting to see if Tobey was going to do it, and if Tobey was going to do it, then I was like, ‘Well, I have no choice,’ you know? I follow Tobey to the ends of the Earth. I’m a lemming for Tobey,” he laughed, while speaking to Deadline. “But that was sincerely a big part of it when I was approached about it, and again, it’s similar to what Tobey was saying. It was like, ‘Oh, the intention feels very pure here. It actually feels like a great creative idea and a great creative story.’ It wasn’t like they were just asking us to come and say hi and then leave again but actually have our presence being in service to Tom, being in service to Tom’s journey and where he is as Peter Parker.”
Garfield continued, “And I love the destiny feeling of the multiverse expanding in this film, and actually, without Tobey’s Peter and Andrew’s Peter being present for Tom’s Peter at this very moment, he may not become the Peter Parker that he’s supposed to become. … Getting three Spider-Men together could go one of two ways, and I think it’s a testament to these guys that it went the way that it went, which was a brotherhood, which is just beautiful.”
We just love the fact that these three were together and wouldn’t be opposed to it happening again.
