Andrew Garfield found closure in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Although his Spider-Man days aren’t finished, it made up for his last appearance.
Andrew Garfield’s time as Spider-Man was a bit lackluster compared to Tobey Maguire’s version.
However, Andrew Garfield’s version had an interesting take.
After all, it featured more extensive background about Peter Parker’s parents.
Not only that, but the love of his life is not Mary Jane Watson.
Rather, it’s Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone).
We hadn’t seen “The Night Gwen Stacy Died” adapted before.
Her death is in line with what happened in the comics.
Nonetheless, there is no denying that there are bigger fans of Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man.
Andrew Garfield Found Closure In Spider-Man: No Way Home
Unfortunately, it’s disappointing that Sony didn’t finish the story.
The story was not told with The Amazing Spider-Man 3 not getting shown.
That would have finished this Peter Parker’s arc.
In addition, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 would have seen the Sinister Six.
Moreover, it would have been the last of the trilogy.
Afterwards, they could focus on other characters if the franchise continued.
On the other hand, Maguire’s Spider-Man was unfinished, too.
Yes, there was originally a plan to make a Spider-Man 4.
Nevertheless, his personal turmoil had some sort of an ending.
Specifically, losing Uncle Ben and giving up on his love for Watson (Kirsten Dunst) had a level of acceptance.
In the end, he even came to terms with his feelings for her.
When Marvel Studios and Sony threw Andrew Garfield the opportunity for Andrew Garfield to take on the role again, he grabbed it.
The story of Spider-Man: No Way Home didn’t complete the dangling plot threads.
But they gave Andrew Garfield another chance for some form of redemption.
Andrew Garfield said in an interview with Happy Sad Confused:
That love has reached me, and the enjoyment of people in theaters has reached me. It’s very touching, I find it very deeply moving, because when we started my second Spider-Man film, it petered out. There was a disjointedness there. So, for me, coming back and actually getting some more time to have fun with it, and to give the character some closure, and to play and be the version of Spider-Man that I was always wanting to get to, and to be with Tobey and Tom and the rest of everybody in the movie, that was healing. It was just an incredible full-circle moment.
Now we wonder when we will see Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man back in action again.
Indeed, his Spider-Man had resolved some of his struggles, especially with his Gwen Stacy.
Could there be another chance to discover what happened to his parents?
Or is there something completely different in store for the Amazing Spider-Man?
The possibilities are endless.
