For a guy who is supposedly not associated with “No Way Home” in any way, shape, or form, Andrew Garfield is talking a lot about Spider-Man these days! Of course, we can hardly blame him for that when it seems like everyone is seizing the opportunity provided by the release of his latest starring role in “Tick, Tick … BOOM!” to pull a J. Jonah Jameson and incessantly demand information about Spider-Man. While Garfield isn’t addressing the elephant in the room here, he does at least entertain one particular lightning rod from a fan question. In an episode of the GQ video series “Actually Me,” in which high-profile names go online to answer questions about themselves, Garfield broaches the idea of how he thinks his version of Spider-Man would react to Iron Man from the MCU:
“I definitely think Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man would be quite suspicious of the MCU Iron Man. I think he would be a little disgusted by the excess, billionaire and trillionaire status of Iron Man. I think it would affect my version of Spider-Man in the way wrong. But maybe there could be some influence there. Maybe my Peter Parker could wake Tony Stark a bit about his own egoic impulses. “
If you ask me, this is the response from someone who has clearly thought about this exact possibility before on their own. That should come as no surprise, given the actor’s obvious passion and protection for the character over the years. Of course, this only highlights how different the last two iterations of Spidey have been, as certain online circles (myself included!) Have criticized Holland’s almost codependent relationship with Stark for feeling completely at odds with his blue-collar roots. . Garfield, for his part, immediately crushes any remaining hope for an introduction between the two characters as he follows that comment with a curt and emphatic, “We’ll never know. literally you never know.”
