In the midst of rumors and supposedly “leaked” images that show him, current Spider-Man Tom Holland and 2000s Spider-Man Tobey Maguire together, the actor set the record straight about his involvement. “I understand why people are freaking out about the concept of that because I’m a fan as well. You can’t help but imagine scenes and moments of ‘Oh, my God, how f*cking cool would it be if they did that?’” he said in an interview with Variety. “But it’s important for me to say on the record that this is not something I’m aware I am involved in. But I know I’m not going to be able to say anything that will convince anyone that I don’t know what’s happening. No matter what I say, I’m f*cked. It’s either going to be really disappointing for people or it’s going to be really exciting.”
Rumors of Garfield and Maguire’s appearances in No Way Home made waves on the internet in October 2020, but Holland revealed in February this year that the previous Spideys will not be present in the film. “No, no, they will not be appearing in this film,” he said. “Unless they have hidden the most massive piece of information from me, which I think is too big of a secret for them to keep from me. But as of yet, no. It’ll be a continuation of the Spider-Man movies that we’ve been making.”
Spider-Man: No Way Home premieres December 17.
