Spider-Man: Andrew Garfield explains why it was essential that he play Peter Parker one last time

Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, Tom Holland : they are three actors to have donned the costume of Spiderman over the past twenty years.

Luckily, fixing that mistake and fulfilling one of the ultimate fan fantasies, Spider-Man: No Way Home brought together all versions of Peter Parker thanks to the Multiverse!

It must be said that in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Gwen Stacey (Emma Stone) was dying in the arms of Peter Parker after he failed to save her life. A final chapter for the trajectory of Andrew Garfield’s hero who had left spectators and the actor with a bitter feeling… Until this version of the character saved Michelle Jones (Zendaya) in No Way Home ! A much better conclusion, isn’t it?
