MCU Boss Says Meeting With Maguire and Garfield Made Him Nervous

Kevin Feige describes how anxious he was to meet with Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire about suiting up for another Spider-Man film.

Marvel Studios President / Marvel Chief Creative Officer Kevin Feige commented on how nervous he was to talk to Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire to see if they would be open to returning for Spider-Man: No Way Home.

In a behind-the-scenes featurette for Spider-Man: No Way HomeFeige discussed “the fun of starting to pitch [the film] to the actors and doing something that is worthy of their time and of their energy, and stepping back into this role. “Feige elaborated by talking about his meeting with actors Maguire and Garfield where they were pitched the idea of ‚Äč‚Äčtheir respective versions of Peter Parker returning to the big screen.

“I had butterflies in those meetings with Tobey and Andrew, hoping they would sign up,” Feige stated. Clearly, the studio head’s pitch worked and both Maguire and Garfield agreed to come back for another film. Audiences last saw Maguire’s version of Peter in 2007’s Spider-Man 3while Garfield’s Peter last appeared in 2014’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Spider-Man: No Way Home director Jon Watts also discussed in the featurette his thought process on getting the three Spider-Men together. “The idea that they are all the same thing and they could all come together … that, to me, felt like it was part of the DNA of the story,” Watts explained. In the film, Maguire’s Peter-Two and Garfield’s Peter-Three arrive to help Tom Holland’s Peter-One cure the Multiverse villains and stop the Marvel Cinematic Universe from being invaded.

Spider-Man: No Way Home was released to financial and critical success during the holiday season of 2021. The film made enough at the box office to make it the highest-grossing film of 2021, the sixth-highest-grossing film of all time, the third-highest-grossing film domestically (after passing James Cameron’s Avatar), the highest-grossing Spider-Man film and the highest-grossing film that Sony has released.

Though the film was a major success, the future of Spider-Man in the MCU is unclear. Holland has stated that he would like to take a break from acting, and without Spider-Man himself, it would be hard to get a movie produced. Holland has described some potential team-ups he would like to see happen with his version of Spider-Man, though, including with Charlie Cox’s Daredevil.


Fans of the webhead still have plenty to look forward to, as Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One) will arrive in theaters Oct. 7.
