Many would argue that Garfield’s best recent performance wasn’t exactly in the recent spider-man, but rather in the constant odyssey he suffered by denying his return to the character for months. Even at some points in his various interviews, he was seen to be exasperated and tired of the fact that the media and fans did not stop asking him the same question. We almost fell for their mentarias. However, it seems that the one who believed in Andrew Garfield completely was Emma Stone.
Recently the actor has been seen happier to be able to talk about his collaboration in the film of the arachnid multiverse without fear and without having to hide anything. Once the film was released, the (open) secret was revealed so that the cast could freely share their experiences during the filming of the film. This benefit brought with it interesting anecdotes. And the most recent involves the actress who played the much-loved character of Gwen Stacy in the last franchise.
Andrew Garfield confessed recently that he still maintains contact via text messages with Emma Stone. Although the two shared a love relationship that is now over, that does not mean that the pair have stopped speaking cordially. Among their talks, the topic of spider-man and the oft-repeated rumor of the actor’s return to the fitted suit. However, Garfield stood his ground and kept the secret even from those close to him:
“Emma kept texting me. He said, ‘Are you in this new ‘Spider-Man’ movie?’ And I was like, ‘I don’t know what you’re talking about. She was like, ‘Shut up, just tell me.’ And I’m like, ‘Honestly, I don’t know…’ I kept it up, even with her. It was funny”.
Although he confessed at the end that the whole thing was very funny, the reality is that the actor did not have such a good time lying. Previously, when he was finally able to speak freely about this situation, Garfield said that keeping the secret for months was both exciting and stressful.
According to the actor (via), he has never been very good at lying, so he felt guilty about lying to his friends and family to their faces. However, he continued to play the game by looking outside himself and looking at the situation from a fan’s perspective. Which was not so complicated for Garfield, who has confessed on more than one occasion that he considers himself another fan of Spider-Man.
“I put myself in that position of, well, what would I like to know? Would I like them to play with me? Would I like them to lie to me? Would I like to be kept on my toes guessing? Would you want to find out when you went to the movies? Would you want to be guessing, guessing, guessing? he commented. “I wish the actor would do an incredibly good job of convincing me that he’s not [en la película]. And then I would want to lose my mind at the movies when my instincts proved correct. That is what I would like.”
The above is the narrative experience that any fan could tell. Regardless of the leaks, the campaign of Spider-Man: No Way Home she remained stoic and secretive about the return of Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire. So much so that the film is already one of the highest grossing of the character, Marvel and especially last year.
Its collection continues while in Mexico it is already the highest grossing film of all time. The multiversal adventure is still in theaters. You can read the review of Cinema PREMIERE here.
