Unless you live under a rock, you’re probably aware of the incredible cross-over featured in “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” the inclusion of previous Spider-Mans Tobey McGuire and Andrew Garfield. Garfield recently spoke about his experience keeping the secret of this epic plot point, which he reveals he even kept from his former cast mate Emma Stone.
“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.’”
This made my brain explode!! Guess who else Andrew Garfield lied to about being in SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME? Emma Stone!

Unlike his costar Tom Holland, Garfield has not had issues in the past revealing details of films he’s starred in prior to their release. However, coming up to the release of “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” Garfield did face a great deal of questioning of whether or not he might appear in the block-buster film. It seems the speculation came about due to some leaked images that made their way online showing Garfield, Holland, and McGuire all together in screenshots from the movie.
There were numerous major interviews the star took part in this past year where he had to outright lie about the role. One major and highly talked about interview included a Skype the star took part in on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” where Fallon asked Garfield if he’d appear in the film.
Of course, maintaining the incredible secret, Garfield explained that he didn’t know what Fallon was talking about. Of course, now we all know know he most certainly knew.
What are your thoughts on Andrew Garfield not revealing to his former costar in the “Spider-Man” franchise that he’d appear in “Spider-Man: No Way Home?” Let us know in the comments!
