Sony Addresses the Andrew Garfield ‘Amazing Spider-Man 3’ Fan Campaign
Spider-Man: No Way Home teamed up Tom Holland and Zendaya with multiple Peter Parker heroes. Doctor Strange cast a spell bringing Tobey Maguire from the Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy and Andrew Garfield from The Amazing Spider-Man movies into the Marvel Cinematic Universe for Phase 4. However, fans wanted more. Marvel fans pushed a campaign for an Andrew Garfield Amazing Spider-Man 3 on Twitter, and Sony responded.
Tom Holland would support Sony if they revisited ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 3′ and Andrew Garfield
While Sony expands their own universe with Jared Leto’s Morbius and Tom Hardy’s Venom, fans wanted Andrew Garfield to join them in The Amazing Spider-Man 3 in 2022 or beyond.
#MakeTASM3 has trended on Twitter as various actors responded to the fan push. Tom Holland said Sony would have his support if they brought Garfield back as the webhead.
“I think what was so wonderful was how Andrew was able to kind of make amends with the character and the studio to kind of win the general public back,” Holland told ComicBook’s Phase Zero Podcast.
“That scene where he saved Zendaya, the fan reactions in the theater was so spectacular. So should Sony decide to do that, they would have my full support, and obviously, so would Andrew,” he continued.
With the Marvel actors catching wind of the fan campaign, Sony addressed the fan push for more stories from the Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone movies.
Sony responded to the Andrew Garfield ‘Amazing Spider-Man 3’ trend
Sony posted a trailer revisiting the Marc Webb Amazing Spider-Man movies and Garfield’s return. It highlighted “The Amazing Peter #3” and even the tragic death of Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) at the hands of the Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan).
However, it also showed on the touching redemption moment in Spider-Man: No Way Home when Andrew Garfield caught MJ (Zendaya) after the Spider-Man villains knocked her from atop the Statue of Liberty.
However, in the tweet, the Sony Twitter team responded to the fan calls for more Andrew Garfield and The Amazing Spider-Man 3.
“Note: Yes, we’ve seen the hashtag. No, we don’t decide which movies get made. We’re just the social team,” they said with a smiley face.
Could Peter #3 return in the MCU, ‘Morbius’ or another Sony movie?
Unfortunately, the Sony response on Twitter does little more than acknowledge the fan push for more Andrew Garfield and The Amazing Spider-Man 3.
Sone suspected that the last Morbius delay was so Sony could add Garfield to the movie. However, Garfield himself has addressed the possibility of him returning as the webhead.
“I [have] no plans, that’s the truth,” Garfield told Variety at the 2022 SAG Awards. “Everyone’s going to call me a liar for the rest of my life. I am the boy who cried wolf now, that’s that.”
For now, it seems that Spider-Man: No Way Home served as a last hurrah for the 2014 Spider-Man.
However, in a world where Marvel can bring together three generations of Spider-Man, anything remains possible.
