We need to talk about Peter Parker. Or, more accurately, Peters Parkers. If you haven’t seen Spider-Man: No Way Home yet (and really, why haven’t you, except for the entirely valid excuse of there being a global pandemic), then you should exit this article here – but chances are, you’ve already found out the film’s biggest spoiler. Namely that, yes, Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire do indeed pop up as other Spider-Men from their respective movie universes, teaming up with Tom Holland in the final reel to send a bunch of multiversal villains packing. More surprising than the fact that they’re in it, is that they’re in it for so much of the film – and really dig into what it means to bring those three alternate Peter Parkers together for the first time.
Now, there’s an official interview with all three Spidey actors, talking together for a good half hour about the film. It’s a fascinating watch, and you can see the whole thing on YouTube here.
As in the film itself, there’s real depth here – with Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire talking about how they were brought back into the Marvel fold, Tom Holland opening up about his nerves of acting alongside the former screen Spideys, and plenty of anecdotes about all being on set together.
No Way Home has proved a major worldwide smash since it arrived in cinemas in mid-December – already pulling in $1.69 billion around the globe. It is, by far and away, the biggest film of the Covid era – though it’s currently still over a billion behind Endgame when it comes to over MCU grosses. While no concrete plans have been confirmed yet for Tom Holland’s future in the franchise, producer Amy Pascal has stated there’s plenty more to come. “This is not the last movie that we are going to make with Marvel – [this is not] the last Spider-Man movie,” she said in November. “We are getting ready to make the next Spider-Man movie with Tom Holland and Marvel. We’re thinking of this as three films, and now we’re going to go onto the next three. This is not the last of our MCU movies.” As for the future for Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield? That remains to be seen…
