Possible spoilers for Spider-Man: No Way Home
It’s easy to forget, but celebrities are movie fans, too. And during the opening night of Spider-Man: No Way Home, former Spider-Men Andrew Garfield, and Toby Maguire snuck into the theater and no one even realized they were there!
He said, “First and foremost, I am a fan, so when Amy Pascal and Kevin Feige and John Watts asked to have a word with me and talk to me about an idea, and they pitched it, it was like I was the fans in the audience, watching it onscreen for the first time with like, the three Spider-Men across universes sharing a frame together.” Garfield was over the moon to be invited back alongside his “big brother” Maguire and “little brother” Tom Holland.
No Way Home introduces all the three Spider-Men much like Into the Spiderverse did with the other Spider-Man variants. But in No Way Home some of us older people got to see our teenage Spider-Man (Maguire), or mid-20’s Spider-Man (Garfield), and our Elder Millenial Spider-Man (Holland) come together in something very magical.
And even Garfield seemed to feel the magic as in one scene, he tells the other two Spider-Men “I love you guys” in a brilliant off-script moment.
This is why he and Maguire couldn’t wait to see the finished product. He explains, “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.” We can’t imagine what it must be like to don the Spider-Man costume with not one, but two amazing actors. What a true blessing.
At the end of the day, Garfield just wanted to make sure that Holland knew he was supported, loved, and cherished. Picking up a character like Spider-Man must be so heavy, but putting it aside must be somewhat devastating. Over the years, we have all loved our Spider-Man’s, and what a truly unique experience for everyone to see them gathered together finally.
