Andrew Garfield has revealed what he thinks about Spider-Man: No Way Home star Tom Holland.
Before Tom Holland became the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Spider-Man, Andrew Garfield was the big-screen web crawler. Occupying the big screen for two films: The Amazing Spider-Man and its sequel, Garfield’s take on the nerdy Peter Parker was praised universally. Garfield passed the torch onto Holland when he stepped into the role of Spider-Man for Captain America: Civil War. Since then, Holland has appeared as Spidey numerous times and is currently set to headline a third film that should wrap up this current trilogy.
Seeing as Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland are both from England and have taken on the role of Spider-Man, one would imagine the two have some rather interesting things to take about. During Wired’s Autocomplete Interview with Andrew Garfield, the star revealed what he really thinks about his Spider-Man successor.
“I really like him. I think he’s a wonderful person. I met him once at the BAFTAs one year. We had a lovely talk. He’s a Kingston boy, [so] we’re neighbors pretty much. He’s from Surrey. As an actor, I think he’s absolutely wonderful. I’m super grateful that he’s the one filling out the suit. I love those films. I think they’ve just done an incredible job with it.”
Andrew Garfield makes it sound as if he and Tom Holland have only crossed paths once. Rumors have persisted for over a year that suggest Garfield and Tobey Maguire will return as their respective Peter Parkers for Spider-Man: No Way Home. If these rumors are true, then it’s highly unlikely that Garfield and Holland have only met once.
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, Marvel’s latest stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori, Martin Starr, J.B. Smoove, Marisa Tomei, Jon Favreau, Benedict Wong, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Alfred Molina.
