Good morning Andrew Garfield wants you to stop mentioning Spider-Man. The actor went viral on Twitter on May 4 for his comments about Marvel’s upcoming third Spider-Man movie. And he can’t stress enough how much he wants people to stop theorizing that he and Tobey Maguire will return as Spider-Man alongside Tom Holland.
So what’s the name of ‘Spider-Man 3’ in 2021?
Both Marvel and Sony have a complicated contract when it comes to the rights to Spider-Man. In fact, that contract is why the Marvel Spider-Man movies aren’t on Disney+ or any other streaming service. But it’s also why fans believe all previous Spider-Man actors will join Holland in Marvel’s Spider-Man: No Way Home.
According to reports, Spider-Man: No Way Home will be part of the “Multiverse of Madness” franchise that the MCU is in the process of creating. WandaVision and Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness are also part of that franchise.
The Amazing Spider-Man and its sequel starred Garfield as Peter Parker. Maguire played the comic book hero in Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man 3, all produced by Sony. There is also the Oscar-winning animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse. This film introduced the possibility of multiple Peter Parkers/Spider-Men coming together in one film.

Is Andrew Garfield confirmed for ‘Spider-Man 3’?
A reason fans believe Garfield and Maguire could appear in ‘No Way Home’ is because of Alfred Molina. The actor played Dr. Otto Octavius (Doctor Octopus/ Doc Ock) in ‘Spider-Man 2’ and confirmed that he will reprise the role in ‘No Way Home’.
“When we were shooting the movie, we all had instructions not to talk about it because it was supposed to be a big secret,” Molina told Variety. “But, you know, it’s all over the Internet. I’ve actually called myself the worst kept secret in Hollywood!”
Jamie Foxx is also a confirmed cast member. He will play Electro, whom he portrayed in Garfield’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2. J.K. Simmons played Daily Bugle editor J. Jonah Jameson in Spider-Man Maguire and made a cameo appearance in Spider-Man: Far From Home. He will also reportedly star in No Way Home.
Other cast members include Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Marisa Tomei and Benedict Cumberbatch (aka Doctor Strange). With characters from the previous two Spider-Man franchises confirmed for No Way Home, it seems quite possible that Garfield and Maguire could appear.

Garfield, however, says there’s no truth to the rumors. In an interview with Josh Horowitz for the “Happy Sad Confused” podcast, “The Social Network” alum tried hard to refute the rumors. He said:
“There’s nothing to ruin, bro! I’m just gonna have to cut you off real quick. There’s nothing to ruin. It’s so crazy. Dude, I think it’s hilarious. I have a Twitter account, and I see how many times Spider-Man comes up as trending and people freak out. And I’m just like, “Guys, guys, guys. I wish I could just say to everyone, ‘I recommend you guys chill out.’ Listen, I can only speak for myself. You might be doing something, but I don’t have a call.”
The star then joked about how no one believes him. He said:
“Do you know how it feels? Because that hasn’t come up in an interview yet. Have you ever played the game werewolf? Or mafia? It’s like you’re convincing everybody that you’re not in the mafia. I feel like I’m in a game of f*cking werewolf or mafia where I’m like, ‘I’m not the werewolf.’ I promise you I’m not the werewolf.’ And everybody’s like, ‘You’re the werewolf! You’re the fucking werewolf! Look at him!'”
To make his point, Garfield said no one at Marvel/Sony has contacted him about the film.
“I didn’t get a call,” he said. “Look, I would have gotten a call by now. That’s all I’m saying.”
