“Spider-Man: No Way Home” is still a hit in dark rooms. Comedian Andrew Garfield recently revealed that one of the scenes in the film was enhanced by Zendaya herself. Find out how this sequence was put together.
Spider-Man: No Way Home – huge success
Released on December 15 in dark rooms, Spider-Man: No Way Home is an absolute hit. In just over a month of operation, the feature film has already brought in more than $1.6 billion in revenue worldwide. A mind-blowing score that places him in the top 10 box office hits of all time. Directed by Jon Watts, the film concludes the trilogy Spiderman initiated in 2017. A third film which obviously brings back the usual cast led by Tom Holland, Zendaya and Jacob Batalon.
Obviously, the feature film also made an impression thanks to the presence of Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire. The two former interpreters of Spider-Man are back on the front of the stage for an absolutely memorable appearance.
A sequence improved by Zendaya
During a recent interview with the podcast Happy Sad Confused, Andrew Garfield returned to the set of Spider-Man: No Way Home. He notably revealed that one of the sequences of the film had been improved by Zendaya. He actually explained that the young actress had the idea of throwing bread at her when he makes his first appearance in the Jon Watts film. As a reminder, the sequence takes place when Ned, accompanied by MJ, uses Dr Strange’s magic to find Peter Parker. But instead of running into their friend, MJ and Ned meet another Peter Parker, the one played by Andrew Garfield. MJ, suspicious, throws bread at him.
At first Zendaya picked up a candlestick or something to threaten me. But there was this bread basket. It was then that she offered, “Can I just throw some bread at him?” Jon Watts thought the idea was brilliant and said to him: “Yeah, go ahead, throw him some bread”.
Andrew Garfield then clarified that this sequence was very funny to shoot. Thanks to Zendaya’s intervention, Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man appearance is pretty lighthearted and a lot of fun to watch. A way to give another side to this character, which remains today the darkest version of Spider-Man in cinema.
