In a recent interview for Tick, Tick… Boom! by ET Canada. Andrew Garfield was asked about his role on being Spider-Man and what he thinks about Tom Holland now portraying one of the most well-known comic book characters.

“The great thing about having played that part, is that you’re one in a long line, and you get to be apart of this very secret small club”

– Andrew Garfield

The role of Spider-Man/Peter Parker is well sought after. Many actors have tried to go for this role such as Asa Butterfield.

“Obviously, for me; Tobey Maguire was my original… like… fell in love with that… hmm… Y’know, film version of that character”

– Andrew Garfield

It’s clear that, the most contemporary live-action Spider-Man before The Amazing Spider-Man was released in 2012, was the iconic Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy starring Tobey Maguire; to get inspiration from.

“But then, now you have Tom Holland. Who I just think is the most remarkable actor, and he’s infused the character with so much heart, soul, humour and charm and sweetness and goodness, as like a goodness that radiates from him. That is Peter Parker!”

– Andrew Garfield

Fans are hoping to see the return of both Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire alongside the current leading star Tom Holland in Spider-Man No Way Home – releasing this December. If this becomes true, it will be such a once in a lifetime cinema experience for fans around the world!
