This summer, fans were introduced to the new Spider-Man, Tom Holland, in Marvel's Captain America: Civil War, which will lead into the first ever Marvel Studios-produced Spider-Man movie, Spider-Man: Homecoming. This comes just a few years after Andrew Garfield starred in 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man and the 2014 follow-up The Amazing Spider-Man 2. For those who wanted to see Andrew Garfield in a Spider-Man suit one more time, then we have just the video for you, plus the actor addresses one of the lingering mysteries from The Amazing Spider-Man movies.
Andrew Garfield appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, to promote his highly-anticipated war drama Hacksaw Ridge. As you may know, the Jimmy Kimmel Live studio is located right on the iconic Hollywood Boulevard, which the show often uses for various bits. Before last night's episode aired, the show sent out a brief Twitter video, showcasing Andrew Garfield masquerading as a Hollywood Boulevard costumed performer, posing for a picture with a paying fan. Costumed heroes are a common sighting on Hollywood Boulevard, but it isn't every day that a big screen superstar takes to the street in costume.
While both of the Amazing Spider-Man movies weren't quite as successful as Sony had hoped for, they certainly weren't flops, and the studio was planning a number of spin-offs as well, such as Sinister Six and Venom. That was all before Sony struck a deal with Marvel to bring Spidey into the MCU, but for those who followed the Amazing Spider-Man movies, there was a mystery that was never solved. During a recent interview for Hacksaw Ridge, Andrew Garfield was asked who the mystery man is seen lurking in the shadows at the end of both movies. Here's what Andrew Garfield had to say below.
"I don't know that the filmmakers knew who the hell that guy was! [Laughs] I don't know, actually. I actually don't know. No. But the good news is that now none of us are ever going to find out, because that version of Spider-Man is no longer. Now we got Tom Holland, who I really think is going to do some beautiful stuff."
Andrew Garfield recently revealed that he's actually glad he isn't playing Spider-Man anymore, because if he would have made Amazing Spider-Man 3, he wouldn't have gotten the chance to work with directors like Mel Gibson in Hacksaw Ridge and Martin Scorsese in the upcoming Silence, which hits theaters on December 23. Take a look at Andrew Garfield donning the Spider-Man suit one last time in this brief video below from Jimmy Kimmel Live.
