“Spider-Man No Way Home”: The Story Behind Andrew Garfield’s “I Love You Guys”

How did “I love you guys” come from “Spider-Man: No Way Home“? The third part of the trilogy consisting of “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and “Spider-Man: Far From Home” was one of the most watched films of the COVID-19 pandemic, with Tom Holland as the protagonist, along with Zendaya and Benedict Cumberbatch, and the anticipation of the appearance of Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire, the remembered Spider-Man from the previous films before the superhero joined Marvel.

The “mystery”Of the appearances of the previous heroes was what kept the fans of the MCU, with the occasional filtration of fragments and other elements of the film which lasted 2 hours and 28 minutes.

The film, directed by Jon Watts, had already announced the return of Willem Dafoe As the Green Goblin already Alfred Molina in the role of Doctor Octopus. These advancements, of course, reinforced the idea that the three Spider-Man would come together in the same movie.

What ended up being fulfilled on December 17, 2021. In this way, “Spider-Man: No Way Home“He delivered everything his fans were looking for and maybe even more, like the moving moment when Garfield tells them”I love you guys”To Holland and Maguire.

Thus, Garfield He said that the phrase “I love you guys“, Which told Tobey Maguire and Tom Holland, in the middle of the climax of “Spider-Man: No Way Home”, Was not in the script and that arose on his initiative.

There’s a line that I improvised in the movie, looking at (Maguire and Holland) and telling them that I love them. It was just me loving them ”, stated the American actor in an interview with Variety.

The star had constantly denied in all the questions that the press asked him during 2021 about his appearance in the third film of the trilogy “Homecoming”. Now, he has opened up to tell more details about his participation, which has been to his liking and which could open other possibilities in the MCU.

On the other hand, the idea of ​​the return of Maguire and Garfield was also thought for an exclusive scene after the credits. Talking to Variety about all the twists and turns of “Spider-Man: No Way Home”, the scriptwriters Erik Sommers Y Chris McKenna They admitted that they considered including the two actors in the film’s post-credits.

“We even said ‘Oh, we could make a label [post-créditos] with this! We could make a label out of that! ‘”McKenna said. Sommers added: “Can we do a TV show with the two of us traveling in a van solving mysteries?”, as a joke.

From a storytelling perspective, the multiverse concept is a great opportunity for creatives to fully exploit it. Anything is possible with the multiverse, and the Maguire / Garfield moments of “No Way Home” They have apparently opened up a whole new avenue of story possibilities.

Adding a few additional scenes with them in the credits, perhaps offering a glimpse of their lives in their proper universes, would have been a great way to cap off the movie. Instead, the actual credits had a scene that ended the post-credits story of “Venom 2″ and the advancement of “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”.

In another part of the interview, McKenna and Sommers touched on the possibility of taking some scenes from “No Way Home” that were not in the final cut for some future films. They both seemed interested in the idea, as did the fans themselves. However, there is nothing in the works at this time.

There were also brief rumors of the making of “The Amazing Spider-Man 3″ with Andrew Garfield, but were later discredited. A post-credits scene could have offered a better idea of ​​where alternate Peter Parkers are headed, but sadly it didn’t happen.
