Andrew Garfield has said he will not be suiting up for Spider-Man: No Way Home.
This comes months after rumours surfaced that the upcoming sequel will not only include Tom Holland’s webslinger, but also original trilogy star Tobey Maguire as well as Garfield, who played the hero in two Spider-Man films from 2012-14.
The idea that No Way Home features three Spider-Men has become so widespread that talk show hosts such as Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon have pumped No Way Home stars for information, and Twitter’s official account has joked about it, too.
Now, Garfield has spoken up.
“I can’t speak for anything else, but for myself. They might be doing something, but I ain’t got a call,” Garfield told MTV’s Josh Horowitz on Tuesday’s episode of the Happy Sad Confused podcast.
“I see how often Spider-Man is trending and it’s like people freaking out,” said Garfield. “And I’m just like, ‘guys, guys, guys’ — I wish I could just be able to speak to everyone and say, ‘I recommend that you chill.’”
