One of the most defining traits of Tom Holland as the current Spider-Man is his connection to the late Tony Stark, who became something of a second father figure or mentor to the younger Peter Parker. Actor Andrew Garfield, who played Spider-Man / Peter Parker in the previous Amazing Spider-Man films in 2012 and 2014, believes his version of the character wouldn’t get along as well with the legendary billionaire / superhero.
In a new video by GQ (above SlashFilm) Garfield answered questions from fans on the Internet about his previous roles, including his tenure as Spider-Man. When asked how the MCU would treat Iron Man Garfield’s Spider-Man, the actor was pretty sure the couple wouldn’t get along.
“I definitely think Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man would be pretty suspicious of MCU Iron Man,” Garfield said. “I think the abundance, billionaire and trillionaire status of Iron Man would put him off a little. I think it would rub my version of Spider-Man in the wrong direction. But maybe there could be an influence. Maybe my Peter … Parker could wake up Tony Stark a little to his own selfish urges. “

Garfield’s take on Spider-Man was definitely a little darker than Tom Holland’s, and perhaps about as dark as Tobey Maguire’s, who dealt with a conspiracy of his dead parents, the death of Gwen Stacy’s father, the police captain, and later the Death of Emma Stones Gwen grappled with Stacy. In any case, Garfield is certain that Maguire is his favorite Spider-Man.
Rumors and fan theories have been circulating for weeks that Garfield might appear in Spider-Man: No Way Home, confirming the return of Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock, the Green Goblin and even The Amazing Spider-Mans Electro played by Jamie Foxx hat, and lizard. the The latest trailer raised a lot of questions on how previous Spider-Man entries might play a role in the multiverse plot elements introduced in Spider-Man: Far From Home and the Loki series from Disney Plus.
Marvel is silent about whether Garfield will appear in No Way Home, and the actor himself has repeated this several times the rumors are “hilarious” and said a cameo of him “I am not aware of it.” Whether this is the truth or just a careful cover-up by a spoiler-sensitive Marvel / Disney remains to be seen.
Garfield has been busy now, starring in Lin Manuel Miranda’s new music film lately Tick, tick … boom! as Jonathon Larson, creator of Broadway’s Rent.
