Andrew Garfield again denied the rumors about participation in 'Spider-Man: No Return Home'. In an interview with the famous talk show 'The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon', after much disagreeing, the actor claimed that the leaked photo - and desperately taken down from social media by Sony Pictures – of him with the other ex-Peter Parker of the cinemas, Tobey Maguire, on the set of the film was “made in Photoshop”.
“There's a picture of you on the internet with Tobey Maguire on the set of 'Spider-Man 3', the new 'Spider-Man' movie,” said Jimmy Fallon, host of the show (watch the video below). Com a resposta, aos risos, de Garfield: “Não tenho certeza disso…”. Em seguida, o comediante “informou oficialmente” brincando ao ator que ele, de fato, vai aparecer no filme – algo que levou ambos à gargalhadas.
After the hilarious moment, the actor acted totally incredulous and continued denying that he had seen the images, asking “what was he talking about”. “If you show me the photo, I can tell if it's me or if it's a real thing,” he said. Fallon then revealed that it had been deleted from the Internet by Sony Pictures, with Garfield joking: "Oh, how convenient, Detective Fallon!" Shortly after he claimed not to be aware of the existence of the image, he went back with the answer and commented that he “heard” about the leak and even saw the content, but exclaimed: “it's a Photoshop. I'm trying to control expectations!”.
At this point, it seems like it would be almost easier for Sony or Marvel Studios to confirm whether Garfield will appear in 'Spider-Man: No Return Home' or not, so he could stop facing the same issue over and over again in an interview. Unfortunately, the studios are probably saving the reveal (already known as the “Hollywood's worst kept secret”) for the next trailer or even for the movie itself, but as the “spectacular webhead” itself points out, expectations are already too high for production.
It is worth remembering that supposed leaks from the set show the actor filming scenes for the feature. Recently, Garfield's former stuntman accidentally shared a photo on the production set with Tom Holland, despite quickly erasing it. And at the end of August, the actor and comedian JB Smoove, who plays Prof. Julius Dell in the films starring the current Peter Parker, confirmed "accidentally" Maguire in the feature.
Either way, it's not like Garfield or Maguire would be able to reveal one of the most awaited secrets of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), if it were true. Everyone involved in the production is being very careful to avoid possible holes or spoilers – including Holland, known for telling many secrets involving Marvel films, did not confirm the presence of the two actors, but stated that the preview released was only “the tip of the icerberg".
And all the denial in Garfield's press interviews has "fallen apart" recently, as another leak (now on video) shows him in a 'Spider-Man' uniform on the 'No Back Home' film set. The recording is even the same as the previously leaked image that the actor is so intent on denying. Watch below:
The trailer for 'No Back Home', which is pretty much the same as leaked before it was officially released (but now finished), shows Holland's Stubborn joining Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch). After the events of 'Away From Home', everyone knows the hero's true identity, and this is causing problems for Peter Parker. He then asks Strange to cast a spell that will make everyone forget that Mysterio has revealed his identity to the world.
For some reason, Strange agrees. The spell, however, causes an imbalance in space-time and opens the doors of the multiverse. Therefore, Parker will have to face villains from other movies of the "Web Head", including the Electro de Jamie Foxx (from 'The Spectacular Spider-Man', starring Andrew Garfield) and the Doctor Octopus de Alfred Molina (from 'Spider-Man 2', starring Tobey Maguire) – which shows up in the final seconds of the preview -, in addition to the Duende Verde de Willem Dafoe, from the first solo feature of “Teioso”, released in 2001.

- 'Spider-Man 3': Tom Holland says that trailer is just “tip of the iceberg”
And, of course, fans are waiting for official confirmation that Andrew Garfield e Tobey Maguire will also be present in the film, which would be the “absolute confirmation” that 'Spider-Man: No Return Home' is a version live action over the Spiderverse arc. Other rumors suggest that Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy) and Kirsten Dunst (Mary Jane Watson) could also make a cameo.
Anyway, the third movie in the series will bring back the actors from the previous features, as Holland, Zendaya, Marisa Tomei and Jacob Batalon. Production will be by Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal. Jon Watts, who directed the hero's last two films, returns in position.
'Spider-Man: No Return Home' arrives on December 16 in theaters.
