Don’t expect the Brit to merely be swayed by a paycheque.
“All I can say is that we have been actively engaging in conversations about what it could potentially look like for a fourth rendition of my character. Whether or not we can find a way to do justice to the character is another thing. I feel very protective over Spider-Man,” he began.
“I feel very, very lucky that we were able to work on a franchise that got better with each movie, that got more successful with each movie, which I think is really rare, and I want to protect his legacy.
"So, I won’t make another one for the sake of making another one. It will have to be worth the while of the character.”
Despite hinting it might take some time to find out what the next chapter would look like, Holland maintained he’d be a ‘fool not to put the suit back on again'.
“I love the character and the people I get to work with. So, I would love to tell another story, but I’ll only tell it if we can find the right one,” he continued.
It’s almost been two years since Spider-Man: No Way Home was released in cinemas, and, given all the old faces that returned to the franchise, it certainly will be hard to top.
But if we’ve learnt anything from Andrew Garfield, it's that we need to protect the character at all costs.
During an interview with Actors on Actors, the 40-year-old revealed how filming the sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man ‘broke his heart’.
Garfield explained how he had been a lifelong fan of the comic book but was disappointed working on the film, as he saw firsthand how the story and characters aren't the priority to studios.
“I signed up to serve the story and to serve this incredible character I'd been dressing as since I was 3, and then it gets compromised, and it breaks my heart,” Garfield said.
“I got heartbroken a little bit."
The actor noted how difficult it was to be a part of such a colossal franchise that young.
“There's something about being that young in that kind of machinery which I think is really dangerous,” Garfield added.
"I was still young enough to struggle with the value system, I suppose, of corporate America.”
