Now that Andrew Garfield’s appearance is officially confirmed in “Spider-Man: No Return Home,” fans are eager to see the star comment on the matter.
Meanwhile, screenwriters Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers share their thoughts on the star’s return as Spider-Man.
During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, McKenna explained that Garfield wanted to take his character down a darker path.
That’s because the star believed Peter was still ravaged by grief and guilt over the death of Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone).
“The last time you saw Andrew Garfield’s Peter, he was trying to get over Gwen’s death, and it must have sent him down a dark spiral, maybe he never came out of it.” Andrew was willing to explore this because we don’t know the answer as there wasn’t a third movie. We wanted to be true to the characters in those movies and it was essential to talk about what they would be, without revealing too much.
The filmmaker said Andrew liked the idea and you can see these developments at certain points in the film, when he watches Tom Holland’s Peter with MJ (Zendaya), and especially when he saves her from a fall.
“This dark part was essential for Tom’s Peter to have someone to admire. Andrew and Tobey are in pain too, they’ve been through it [pela dor da perda]. They became beacons for Tom in the midst of the darkness he lived, ”he concluded.
So what did you think of Garfield and Tobey Maguire’s involvement in the sequel?
