In 2012, Andrew Garfield took on the iconic role of Spider-Man from Tobey Maguire. Garfield was in The Amazing Spider-Man, and it is one of the best films in the series.
Unfortunately, his appearance in Amazing Spider-Man 2 in 2014 did not get a warm reception from fans and critics, and because of that, Garfield was replaced by Tom Holland.
The most recent film in the series, Spider-Man: No Way Home, features some aspects of Garfield's Spider-Man. Strangely, Garfield has consistently denied this fact.
After the latest release in the franchise, Garfield has spoken up about his experience. He talked about the opportunity to be in the film's narrative.
The one thing that stood out was his willingness to play the role of Spider-Man in the future if he felt right about it:
"I mean, yes, definitely open to something if it felt right. Peter and Spider-Man, those characters are all about service, to the greater good and the many."
Garfield likes the role because, to him, Spider-Man is a boy who understands struggle and loss and is still empathetic. The actor also thought the opportunity would give him a great chance to tie up some loose ends about his Peter Parker character.
In Spider-Man: No Way Home, Garfield is still haunted by the fact that he could not save Gwen, making him more aggressive than Spider-Man.
During the last battle, Garfield gets a chance to redeem himself after saving Holland's love interest as he wishes he had saved Gwen.
If there is one thing Spider-Man: No Way Home does well concerning Garfield, it is reminding people that the actor was a great Peter Parker. The film also gives his character some closure.
Initially, there were concerns that Garfield's role in No Way Home would not fit in too well with the rest of the story. Fortunately, his appearance was a fitting tribute to his past appearances in the film series, a massive relief to many fans and critics.
