Andrew Garfield has revealed that he came up with one of Spider-Man: No Way Home’s most emotional lines off-the-cuff.
Garfield played Peter Parker in 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man and its 2014 sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2 - it had long been rumoured that both he and fellow Peter Parker actor Tobey Maguire would be popping up in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
And the rumours turned out to be correct, after Peter Parker (played by Tom Holland) comes face to face with other Peter Parkers (played by Garfield and Maguire) who exist in alternate universes.
Talking about the scene to Variety, Garfield said: “We would have deeper conversations and talk about our experiences with the character.
“And to have [Spider-Man producer] Amy Pascal there, who has seen through nine movies, including Spider-Verse.
“It was a revelatory experience for her, realising how much life and time she’d given to this character. That was beautiful and profound.”
He went on: “There’s a line I improvised in the movie, looking at [Maguire and Holland] and I tell them I love them. That was just me loving them.”
Ah, isn’t that sweet?
Garfield also revealed that the three Spideys found the whole thing pretty funny and even did the famous Spider-Man pointing meme.
He said: “I think the first time we were all in the suit together, it was hilarious because it’s like just three ordinary dudes who were just actors just hanging out.
“But then also, you just become a fan and say, ‘Oh my god we’re all together in the suits and we’re doing the pointing thing!’”
The actor went on to say that Holland was actually a bit jealous of his suit as it was fitted with special zips, meaning he could easily free his hands if he needed to.
Unfortunately for Holland, his suit didn’t come with that handy feature and he had to use his nose to work his phone. It’s not all glamour this acting malarkey, is it?
Spider-Man: No Way Home is out in cinemas now.
