There are now rumours that Andrew Garfield might be having second thoughts about returning to play Spider-Man in the MCU. According to a new report from We Got This Covered, Garfield might be having doubts due to his past dealings with Sony Pictures.
Andrew Garfield played Spider-Man in The Amazing Spider-Man 1 and 2, and he was subsequently dropped when the second movie didn’t review very well. According to WGTC’s sources, Garfield didn’t much care for the way he was treated by Sony and is worried that the same thing could happen again.
Now, it has been reported by various publications that Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire have both signed on to star in Spider-Man 3. Again, I’ve said this multiple times now, but we were informed differently. We were told that they’ve signed on to appear in Spider-Man 4, not the upcoming Spider-Man movie.
Andrew Garfield rumoured to be having second thoughts about playing Spider-Man in the MCU
Honestly, it would make sense for Andrew Garfield to be rather trepidatious about returning to play Spider-Man. He was very invested in the character and did talk at length about what an honour it was to play the comic book character. However, it didn’t end well for him.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was panned by the critics and it really wasn’t his fault. People complained that Garfield’s version of Peter Parker was just too cool for school. It was also said that he was too old to play the character.
However, one of the main reasons why the first movie worked was because of his performance. He definately deserves a second chance to show what he can do in the role. Fingers crossed it does happen at some point in the future.
