38 year-old Andrew Garfield has hailed Tom Holland as the “perfect” Spider-Man

Having starred in two of the movies before being replaced, he is more than happy to support his web-slinging successor.

Speaking about the upcoming film ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’, Andrew said: “I think that Tom Holland is just the perfect Peter Parker and Spider-Man, so I’m just super stoked.

“And I get to just like, be a fan again, which is my preferred position – to be able to sit in the audience and kind of go, ‘Yeah, you screwed up mate, you didn’t do it as well as you could have done, eh?’

“I get to be that guy that’s just like, ‘Yeah, I don’t really love the suit…’ I get to be that person which is so much fun.”

It has been rumoured that Andrew is set to make an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) project alongside Tom – but remained tight-lipped despite a leaked photo of him on the set.

Andrew said: “I’m not sure about that.

“I’m trying to manage expectations! If they want to give me a call at this late, late stage of the game, you know, I’m sitting here in my tracksuit.”

Andrew – who played the hero in the 2012 movie ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ and the 2014 sequel – is adamant that he is not involved in the latest blockbuster, even if his claims have fallen on deaf ears.

He said: “It’s important for me to say on the record that this is not something I’m aware I am involved in.

“But I know I’m not going to be able to say anything that will convince anyone that I don’t know what’s happening.

There are a number of cameos confirmed in the upcoming MCU instalment, including Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock and Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin, but Garfield and Maguire have repeatedly attempted to dispel rumours that either will be back as Peter Parker.

In the interview, Garfield also admitted how “excited” he was for the latest Spidey film, despite not being asked to cameo.

“And I get to just be a fan again, which is my preferred position, to be able to sit in the audience and just kind of go, ‘Yeah, you screwed up, mate! You didn’t do it as well as you could, like!’ I get to be that guy… which is much more fun,” Garfield joked.

“I’m excited, and I think that Tom Holland is just the perfect Peter Parker and Spider-Man,” he explained. “So I’m just super stoked.”

“No matter what I say, I’m f*. It’s either going to be really disappointing for people or it’s going to be really exciting.”

Spider-Man: Far From Home is available now on DVD, Blu-ray and digital download. Spider-Man: No Way Home has a December 17, 2021 release date.
