Andrew Garfield has revealed he's open to putting on the Spider-Man suit once again to finish his trilogy.

The British actor had two films as the friendly neighbourhood superhero after Tobey Maguire's time came to an end.

He's the only one out of Maguire and Tom Holland not to have a third film in his franchise.

Fans have been rallying behind him since the release of No Way Home and they're calling on Marvel and Sony to give Garfield one last turn.

While these fan campaigns come and go all the time, this one looks like it has some decent foundations because Andrew is backing it.

When asked how he felt about maybe coming back to the character, Garfield said it would be impossible to turn down if the offer was right.

He told Variety: "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.

"He's a working-class boy from Queens that knows struggle and loss and is deeply empathetic.

"I would try to borrow Peter Parker's ethical framework in that, if there was an opportunity to step back in and tell more of that story, I would have to feel very sure and certain in myself."

He said it was incredible getting to jump back into the character for No Way Home.

Both he and Maguire got to return as Peter Parker thanks to the multiverse being opened in Tom Holland's third film, which also brought back loads of classic villains.

Garfield said he leapt at the opportunity when the call came through.

"I wasn't expecting to ever have a conversation again about potentially playing Peter Parker," he revealed to Variety.

"I felt very excited to just to be a fan again. But I got this call from Amy Pascal and Kevin Feige and Jon Watts with this idea. It was immediately undeniable.

"It sounded incredibly fun, incredibly spiritual - trippy and thematically interesting.

"On a base level, as a Spider-Man fan, just the idea of seeing three Spider-Men in the same frame was enough."

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ended with teasing the Sinister Six was about to wreak havoc on New York City, so the movie studios would be ready to go with a plot for the third film.

There has been no word from Marvel or Sony about getting Garfield back as Peter Parker/Spider-Man.

But at least the actor and the fans have clearly indicated their strong support for the idea.
