Looks like Tom Holland has a fan in previous Spiderman actor, Andrew Garfield, who recently sat down for an interview with Fandango.
The British actor has a busy few months ahead with the release of Mel Gibson’s Hacksaw Ridge and Martin Scorsese’s Silence, with both films looking poised for awards season glory.
However, on the topic of the Spider-Man 3 film that never happened, Garfield was not the lease bit cut up. “To be honest, I would not have been able to work with Mel Gibson and Martin Scorsese if I had done Spider-Man 3. I’m incredibly grateful that I get to now go and watch another man play Spider-Man who I think is a fantastic actor in Tom Holland,” he commented.
Since Garfield was prevented from wearing the Spiderman suit again after Marvel and Sony Pictures made a deal to bring Peter Parker into the MCU, you’d think he’d feel even slightly miffed. Instead, Garfield had nothing but kind words for Holland, who made his Spidey debut in Civil War. “If I am being totally honest, I am so excited Spider-Man is back in the hands of Marvel. I think that’s a really awesome move. It was a move that I’ve been advocating since I was offered the Spider-Man gig five or six years ago. I’m also excited for Tom Holland. I think he’s a very emotional, truthful, funny, physical actor, and I love the filmmaker — it all really couldn’t be in any better hands. I’m really stoked for it,” he said.
And there you have it. No dramas. All love.
