Rumor: Andrew Garfield Set To Return To The MCU In Avengers: Secret Wars

To The MCU In Avengers: Secret Wars

Compared to the other two Spider-Men on the big screen, Andrew Garfield’s version of the Web-Slinger is often overlooked by the audience. However, as the actor returns as a Peter Parker variant in the critically acclaimed Spider-Man: No Way Home in 2021, his presence was widely welcomed by fans all over the world, as their dream to see three Spider-Men in the same movie has become true.

After the film’s success, Garfield’s popularity as the friendly neighbor skyrocketed once again, with rumors that the Hacksaw Ridge star will reprise the role in a potential The Amazing Spider-Man threequel, which was ultimately canceled due to an underwhelming part 2. The actor also expressed that “the story never ends” for Spider-Man.

Recently, another rumor arose on Twitter with Garfield to play Peter Parker again in yet another MCU title in the future. Let’s learn more about this piece of news through this article.

Marvel fans on Twitter once again can get their hopes up, as according to the platform’s user CanWeGetToast, a scooper who has nearly 40k followers, Garfield could reprise the role in one of the most anticipated MCU movies in Phase 6, Avengers: Secret Wars.

The Twitter user also claims that there was a meeting between Marvel Studios’ head Kevin Feige and Garfield to discuss his possible role in Secret Wars prior to the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strike. If this turns out to be true, the actor will return to the MCU alongside Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, who will make his MCU debut in the upcoming Deadpool 3.

Adapting a Marvel Comics’ event which leans heavily onto the Multiverse, Secret Wars is expected to feature a lot of superheroes and villains’ variants, and that’s where Garfield’s Spider-Man can come into play, and quite possibly, Tobey Maguire’s version of Peter as well.

After CanWeGetToast’s statement, there are multiple sources from social media platforms that both deny and confirm the rumor. Therefore, before hearing any official piece of news from either Garfield or Marvel, it’s better to take this rumor with a grain of salt.

Thanks to Spider-Man: No Way Home’s box office success, rumors have been flooding the internet ever since about both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield returning as the Wall-Crawler in their respective franchises. 


Thomas Hayden Church, who plays Sandman in both Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 and No Way Home, confirmed that he had heard rumors about a potential Spider-Man 4. Meanwhile, Garfield also gave a positive response about a potential The Amazing Spider-Man 3 movie, stating the character has “endless potential”, and that “the story never ends” in the extensive fanbook volume.

While there’s yet any confirmation from the main parties, these ongoing rumors are enough to get Spidey fans worldwide excited while they wait for the official statement.

As for the actor himself, Garfield stated that he would be more than happy to reprise the role of the friendly wall-crawling neighbor. However, the star also said that it won’t happen any time soon, as he currently wanted to take a break from acting after his TV miniseries, Under the Banner of Heaven in 2022.

“I’m going to rest for a little bit. I need to recalibrate and reconsider what I want to do next and who I want to be and just be a bit of a person for a while. Because as you know, that is a washing machine, that awards season… I need to just be a bit ordinary for a while,” Garfield shared with Variety.


Earlier this year, the actor also talked about his MCU role in the No Way Home: Art of the Movie book, and discussed about his future as the Web-Slinger.

“The story never ends, whether we film it or not,” he said. “There’s a story happening in a universe somewhere. That’s endless potential with this character and all the different interactions. So, yeah, he’s definitely out there doing something,” said Garfield.
