Andrew Garfield comments on redemption of his Spider-Man after Gwen Stacy’s death in Spider-Man: No Path Home. Garfield played Peter Parker / Spider-Man in Sony The Amazing Spider-Man series of films, which did not continue after The Incredible Spider-Man 2. The end of this movie saw Garfield’s Spider-Man attempting to save his girlfriend, Gwen Stacy (played by Emma Stone), as she fell to her death, tugging at a web and grabbing him, but suddenly stopped him. broke her neck and killed her. His character was last seen in the movie mourning his death and attempting to switch to Spider-Man.
Unfortunately, Garfield didn’t have the chance to redeem his Spider-Man, because The Incredible Spider-Man 3 never happened. Instead, the character was rebooted in the MCU with actor Tom Holland, who first appeared as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War, playing the role in crossovers and solo movies up to Spider-Man: No Path Home, where Garfield and Tobey Maguire, the Spider-Man from Sam Raimi’s films, both appeared and helped Holland’s Spider-Man.
However, neither Garfield nor Maguire presented themselves in the film as mere extra roles, but rather in fully fleshed out appearances that gave weight and redemption to their respective Spider-Men. Talk to Variety, Garfield commented on his return to the character, specifically the redemption he was able to achieve after Gwen Stacy’s death in The Incredible Spider-Man 2. At the time of redemption, Garfield saved MJ (Zendaya) from his death, successfully rescuing her in the same way he had attempted with Gwen, but this time without disastrous results. The actor explained, saying:
My Spider-Man was able to save his younger brother’s romantic relationship, potentially. And to heal the most traumatic moment of his own life by doing it for his younger brother. Making sure he didn’t have the same fate, there is something cosmically beautiful about that. It meant having a second chance to save Gwen.
While The Incredible Spider-Man 3 never happened, Garfield nonetheless pursued other successful endeavors. He has acted in a number of high-profile projects, including Mel Gibson’s World War II drama, Hacksaw ridge, Martin Scorsese Silence, Andy Serkis’ To breathe, and that of Michael Showalter Tammy Faye’s eyes. He recently starred in Lin Manuel Miranda’s film tick, tick … BOOM! and will then appear in the Hulu miniseries adaptation of Jon Krakauer’s film Under the banner of heaven.
Garfield has proven himself to be a magnetic and affable actor, choosing a wide variety of roles that keep him challenged, whether as a war hero, superhero, polio patient, televangelist or songwriter, and more. of the. As calls grew to see him return as Spider-Man to some extent following the emotional appearance in Spider-Man: No Path Home, it would ultimately be more than enough to have the moment of redemption in the film to close his Spider-Man arc. Still, if that were possible, having Garfield weaving webs on the big screen again would be a welcome continuation of what he started in 2012.
