Spider-Man: No Way Home has its fair share of epic scenes and sweeping tirades. One of the lines from the film, already adored by fans, was totally improvised by one of the actors.
Warning, spoilers. The following paragraphs reveal plot elements from Spider-Man: No Way Home.
After spending months denying his presence in Spider-Man: No Way Home, Andrew Garfield has finally been able to speak out on this long-awaited comeback. The actor confided in Variety on his experience shared with Tom Holland and Tobey Maguire, the other two performers of Spider-Man.
Despite the bitter taste and bad memories left by the abrupt end of his contract with Sony for the film series The Amazing Spider-Man, Andrew Garfield was convinced by producers Amy Pascal and Kevin Feige to don the superhero costume.
“I love you”
The actor appreciated that his point of view and that of Tobey Maguire are heard by the production, and this goes as much through the discussions on their characters as on more spontaneous moments on the set.
Thus, Andrew Garfield revealed that he had improvised a line, which fans very quickly adored in Spider-Man: No Way Home: “There is a line I improvised in the movie, watching [Maguire et Holland] and I tell them that I love them. It was just me who loved them. “
This is a retort that “Peter 3” (Andrew Garfield) throws at the other Peter’s after they coordinate to defeat the super villains landed in the universe of Tom Holland’s Peter, namely Doctor Octopus ( Alfred Molina), the Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe) and the Sandman (Thomas Haden Church), seen in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man with Tobey Maguire, but also The Lizard (Rhys Ifans) and Electro (Jamie Foxx), seen in Marc Webb’s Spider-Man with Andrew Garfield.
This line supports the feeling of brotherhood and a family need on the part of Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker which the actor discussed with the production:
“As a Spider-Man fan, the mere idea of seeing three Spider-Men in the same shot was enough. The pitch was really enticing. They said to me: You played this character your way, so that Would you like to explore if you had the chance? If you were thrown into another universe and faced with a younger you and an older you, how would you react? […] We talked about mentoring, fellowship, and what it’s like to be the older brother, the younger brother, and the middle brother. “
