For the Best Nostalgia Ever? Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire Appear in Spider-Man No Way Home
The first two live-action Spideys were not required to be included in the film. But it did, and as a result, the film is a better one.
Someone with more leisure time than I will have to comb through the archives and see how many times Andrew Garfield has said that he will not be featured in Spider-Man: No Way Home (Throughout 2021, he was promoting three different movies: Mainstream, The Eyes of Tammy Faye, and Tick..Tick..Boom, and was asked about his web-slinging while doing press for each one). That sounds like a lot of effort, so maybe someone else can count how many times Tom Holland said that both Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire will be absent from the film, leaving him as the only Spidey. Tobey Maguire hasn’t been in a live-action film since 2014’s Pawn Sacrifice, so he was spared the press’s constant queries (and we don’t need anybody to keep track of his denials for our purposes).
Even yet, it never seemed quite right. Yes, Andrew Garfield is claiming that he will not appear in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Is Andrew Garfield, on the other hand, in Spider-Man: No Way Home? He seems like he may be. It also seems that Tobey Maguire is involved. It’s simply that I’ve always had the feeling they could be in the damn movie.
Fans of Spider-Man were persuaded, and they were even more convinced when No Way Home’s teasers indicated that villains from previous series, including as Willem Dafoe‘s Green Goblin and Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock, would be returning, entering the MCU through a multiversal portal. If the baddies are on their way, the heroes must be on their way as well, right?
The denials, on the other hand, kept pouring. “Is Andrew Garfield portraying Spider-Man again?” the actor asked in a WIRED Autocomplete YouTube video before the premiere of No Way Home. “No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no You were so close to catching me. No. No, I’m not one of them. No, I’m not! For the love of God, please. But I’m definitely looking forward to seeing what they accomplish with the next film. For the simple reason that I adore them.”

They are, without a doubt, spider-obsessed.
Andrew Garfield must have been eager to see what they had planned for the upcoming Spider-Man film because…in he’s it! (In what is just a fantastic read, Vulture recapped all of the denials in the lead-up to the film’s premiere.)
In Spider-Man: No Way Home, it takes a while for Garfield and Maguire’s versions of Peter Parker to appear, but once they do, they’re in it for the long haul. Their performances aren’t simply cameos, either: the two Peter Parkers from the past share critical, pivotal moments with the MCU Peter Parker (Holland), with narrative and character development in mind. There’s also some wonderful humour! Any Spider-Man fan would most certainly burst out laughing at the interactions between the three generations of the web-slinger.
One may argue that the presence of these two actors (as various versions of our main character) is just a cheap nostalgia gimmick. I have no objections to the fact that it’s a nostalgic ruse, but guess what? It’s the right sort of nostalgia. The Spider-Man films, directed by Sam Raimi, laid the groundwork for today’s superhero films, with intriguing villains that leap off the screen and a light tone that isn’t hesitant to blend comedy with action and emotion. Back then, Maguire’s Peter Parker was just geeky and toolish enough to appeal to a whole generation of moviegoers.
Garfield’s Peter, on the other hand, would be a more welcome addition. Although neither of his two Amazing Spider-Man films were very successful, his interpretation of the character was outstanding; his Peter was a touch too cool for school, but once he put on the costume and began wisecracking, he was fully immersed in the role. It’s thrilling to watch him given another opportunity in a film that turns out to be much superior than either of his previous two outings.
Perhaps you’re curious as to how our two Spider-Men ended up here.
It’s simple: do the same thing as the evil people. When Doctor Strange’s spell goes awry, anybody who knows Peter Parker becomes Spider-Man (along with a few stragglers, such as a post-credits scene Venom (Tom Hardy), who came through to the MCU for a brief visit). Yes, our two Peter Parkers were among those discovered when Ned (who now understands how to basically perform Doctor Strange magic portals???) opened portals from his living room and discovered both Peter Parkers.
This is where I state unequivocally that the scene in Spider-Man: No Way Home when the two elderly Peter Parkers—Maguire and Garfield—finally arrive is a geek movie freak out moment that I will never forget from my first watching. And it’s because of all the hoopla; despite all the speculations, there’s a moment in No Way Home when you start to wonder to yourself, “Maybe it’s just Tom Holland?”
But then it occurs, and once it does, you’ll know what’s going on. And if you’re a Spider-Man fan, it’ll make your day. At first, you can tell it’s Andrew Garfield because of the voice from the alley. I’m sure your movie theater exploded in applause as he stepped through the portal and removed his mask. Why? That’s because it’s fantastic! Maguire’s arrival elicited a similar response because, yeah, he was incredible.
Look, nostalgia may be cheap at times. That is correct. But this is Spider-Man:
No Way Home, and these cameos aren’t just for show; they’re also for a reason. Part of that objective is undoubtedly to jog our recollections of happy times past (and guess what: mission completed!). However, the film does a fantastic job of fleshing out these characters and giving them distinct arcs and personality qualities.
We now know Peter, played by Tom Holland, is eager and charming. Garfield is usually awesome, and here he plays up his underdog-as-Spidey status; he’s still amazing, but even his Peter seems to recognize that he hasn’t gotten to do quite as much fun or outrageous things as his buddies. And he sells his lines like crazy! Garfield’s eyes well up with tears when he rescues MJ (Zendaya) from a lengthy fall, since he recalls losing Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) in the same manner. Garfield is giving it his all in this film, as if he’s going for an Oscar! It’s wonderful stuff.
What more is there to say about Tobey Maguire? Tobey is Spider-Man for the majority of us, regardless of how amazing the other two are. And now, after 14 years away from the part, he’s back as an older, wiser version of the same person with a considerably drier wit.
Is this all a little too cheap? Yes. But keep in mind that this is the first of a series of films about a little boy who gains the abilities of a spider and transforms into a superhero. We don’t have to take it seriously at all. We’ll all have a fantastic time if we simply appreciate it for what it’s plainly trying to provide us. And Spider-Man: No Way Back is a lot of fun.
