Next month the third Marvel Cinematic Universe Spider-Man film hits cinema screens, Spider-Man: No Way Home. This will be the second set of Spidey films that has completed a trilogy, following Tobey Maguire’s trio of films in 2007. Maguire was followed by a new Spider-Man actor, Andrew Garfield, who has recently broken his silence on his experience in the series.
Garfield starred in 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man and 2014’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
While the first was a smash hit that earned more than $750 million at the box office, the second was widely criticised and became the lowest-grossing live-action Spidey film to date.
Following TASM2, Sony axed Garfield’s Spider-Man franchise, before starting a deal with Marvel that would eventually spawn Tom Holland’s films.
Garfield has since confessed that he “got his heart broken a little bit” during that time.
In a new interview, he added: “I went from being a naive boy to growing up.” (Via The Guardian)

Garfield went on: “How could I ever imagine that it was going to be a pure experience?”
One of the biggest criticisms of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was that it felt too bloated – it had many villains shoehorned into it to mark the beginning of a supervillain spin-off film.
On his time in the series, Garfield added: “There are millions of dollars at stake and that’s what guides the ship. It was a big awakening and it hurt.”
He then went on to add: “Comic-Con in San Diego is full of grown men and women still in touch with that pure thing the character meant to them. [But] you add in market forces and test groups and suddenly the focus is less on the soul of it and more on ensuring we make as much money as possible.”
Rumours that Maguire and Garfield would be returning as their respective Spider-Men in Spider-Man: No Way Home have been around for over a year now.
Since then, Garfield has been asked directly about whether he’ll be making an appearance.
Speaking in May, he confirmed he was not in the film, before adding: “If they want to give me a call at this late, late stage in the game… you know I’m sitting here in my tracksuit.”
Holland has also been quizzed over whether the previous actors will join him on-screen.
Holland said: “Unless they have hidden the most massive piece of information from me, which I think is too big of a secret for them to keep from me.
“But as of yet, no. It’ll be a continuation of the Spider-Man movies that we’ve been making.”
Spider-Man: No Way Home hits cinemas on December 17.
