“She was really beautiful and it totally sold me.”
WARNING: SPOILER FOR Spider-Man: No Way Home Ahead. I
I don’t know about you, but there was a very specific moment Spider-Man: No Way Home That’s where the tears started* – and it was when Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man caught Zendaya’s MJ after his character was unable to save Gwen Stacy in his own film.
Well, in a new interview with Variety, Andrew finally breaks his silence on what it was like to be back in the Spidey-verse—including that big scene.
“My Spider-Man found the potential to save his younger brother’s romantic relationship,” he explained. “And to heal the most painful moment of his life by doing so for his younger brother.”
“There’s something cosmically beautiful about it while making sure she doesn’t have the same fate. It meant getting a second chance at saving Gwen.”
He continued, “You know, the emotion that Zendaya brings to MJ is so heartfelt and pure and loving, and Emma brought that kind of unique feeling to Gwen.”
“I would say the image of my catching MJ – she was really beautiful and it totally sold me.”
Andrew also said in interviews that he would be down to play the character again, and he was “definitely open to anything if it felt right.”
Now, if you don’t mind me, it looks like I have something in my eye.
