Andrew Garfield is back again to deny that he is set to return as Spider-Man in Tom Holland’s No Way Home.

The return of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield in Spider-Man: No Way Home might be the worst kept secret in Hollywood, with more and more evidence pointing to the rumors being true. A new trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home is set to release on Tuesday, so there’s a chance their return is finally confirmed in the new footage before the film arrives in theaters next month.

In the meantime, Andrew Garfield has been denying his involvement in the upcoming Spider-Man film at every turn. During a recent appearance on The Today Show, Garfield once again claimed that he’s not back:

“Listen, I’m not in the film. I love Spider-Man, I always have, I was so happy to have played the part. I’m so excited to see what they do with the third one. Just like you are, to be honest. That’s not the diplomatic answer, I really, really mean it. I love Tom Holland, I love [director] Jon Watts, I love [producers] Amy Pascal and Kevin Feige, and what they’ve done with those movies and that character. It’s an important character to me. So I’m just really excited to see what happens in the third one, as you guys are.” 

Here is the synopsis for Tom Holland’s Spider-Man: No Way Home:

“For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero is umasked and no longer able to separate his normal life from the high-stakes of being a Super Hero. When he asks for help from Doctor Strange the stakes become even more dangerous, forcing him to discover what it truly means to be Spider-Man.”

Directed by Jon Watts from a script written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, Spider-Man: No Way Home stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori, Martin Starr, J.B. Smoove, Marisa Tomei, Jon Favreau, Benedict Wong, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Alfred Molina.

Spider-Man: No Way Home will hit theaters on December 17, 2021. Stay tuned for all the latest news on Andrew Garfield’s potential return, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
