Andrew Garfield Lied To Emma Stone Regarding His Spider Man No Way Home Role

Spider-Man: No Way Home has become one of the best movies from Marvel Studios with its record-breaking box-office collections and rave reviews from fans and critics alike. While the movie opened up endless avenues for the future of the MCU, No Way Home also re-ignited the desire to bring back Andrew Garfield for The Amazing Spider-Man 3. Despite a limited screen time, Garfield managed to steal every single scene he was in Spider-Man: No Way Home, once again reminding us that he was well, a truly amazing Spider-Man. But interestingly, the British-American actor had to keep his involvement in No Way Home a secret till the very end despite being bombarded with the question repeatedly in several interviews. However recently, it has also been revealed that Andrew Garfield also kept the secret from his former girlfriend Emma Stone.

Prior to the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Andrew Garfield had to do numerous press tours for Tick, Tick, …Boom! which is being considered by many to be one of the best movies of 2021. However, the actor was hounded by reporters regarding his involvement in Spider-Man: No Way Home. In response, Garfield did not evade the question but simply chose to lie through his teeth, almost convincing everyone that he was not going to return as Spider-Man. That also included lying to Emma Stone, till the movie was actually released.

“Emma kept on texting me. She was like, ‘Are you in this new Spider-Man film?'” Garfield told the Happy Sad Confused podcast in a new interview. “And I was like I don’t know what you’re talking about. She was like shut up just tell me and I was like I honestly don’t know…I kept it going, even with her, it was hilarious….And then she saw it, she was like, ‘you’re a jerk.'”

Emma Stone, who played the role of Gwen Stacy in The Amazing Spider-Man series gained universal acclaim for her performance as Garfield’s Peter Parker’s love interest. While The Amazing Spider-Man franchise was terminated for its weak plotline, Stone and Garfield’s chemistry was one of the major highlights of the movies. More interestingly, Emma Stone’s Gwen Stacy also played a vital role in developing Garfield’s Spider-Man even in No Way Home even after her tragic death in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Spider-Man: No Way Home is now playing in theaters.
