Earlier this week, Sony Pictures held a special screening of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse and Andrew Garfield ended up being a surprise guest. The actor appears to have patched things up with the studio since he was fired from The Amazing Spider-Man franchise, and he had only good things to say about the animated sequel. 

Addressing fans in attendance, Garfield called the sequel "a masterpiece of pure cinema without any separation," a sentiment fans and critics appear to agree with. After all, it has a 95% score on Rotten Tomatoes and is already a contender for next year's "Best Animated Feature" Oscar.

As far as we're aware, there were no huge revelations from the Q&A following this screening, but a new rumour has surfaced which reiterates past reports that Garfield's Spider-Man is being eyed to make a cameo appearance in Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse

That movie lost its release date earlier this year and is no longer expected to swing into theatres until 2025 or, most likely, 2026. There have long been rumblings that Garfield, Tobey Maguire, and Tom Holland might show up, and based on Across the Spider-Verse, we now know any sort of cameo would be in live-action.

Time will tell, but we aren't expecting any major updates on Beyond the Spider-Verse until well into next year. On the plus side, this gives Sony time to figure out potential cameos after previously re-using footage from past movies in the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse follow-up. 

Would you like to see Miles Morales meet the three live-action Spider-Men?

In Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, Miles Morales returns for the next chapter of the Oscar-winning Spider-Verse saga. After reuniting with Gwen Stacy, Brooklyn's full-time, friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man is catapulted across the Multiverse, where he encounters a team of Spider-People charged with protecting its very existence.

But when the heroes clash on how to handle a new threat, Miles finds himself pitted against the other Spiders and must redefine what it means to be a hero so he can save the people he loves most.

The movie stars Shameik Moore, Hailee Steinfeld, Jake Johnson, Issa Rae, Daniel Kaluuya, Karan Soni, Jason Schwartzman, Brian Tyree Henry, Luna Lauren Velez, Greta Lee, Rachel Dratch, Jorma Taccone, Shea Whigham, and Oscar Isaac.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is now available on Digital and Blu-ray.

Garfield is a really good dude. He's kind, patient, and appreciative. He got screwed over with the 2nd Amazing Spiderman, but he gave it the best performance an actor could.

I LOVED him in 'No Way Home.' I already love Toby and how his webs come from his body. but I shed a tear when Andrew said "I have always wanted to have brothers."

My brother was murdered close to 4 years ago and I've never gotten over it. It hurts every day and in my nighttime dreams.
I guess i just move forward with the things/movies/tv shows we both loved together. (i can't count how many times I wanted to text my bro with the ""prarie-dog" burrow scene in the first Tremors film).

@lazlodaytona - I apologize to all the users here for unloading my personal stuff. it won't happen again.
bkmeijer1 - 12/8/2023, 6:45 AM
@lazlodaytona - Garfield is still my favourite actor out of the three that portrayed the character. He brought so much to it, in all three movies. He deserves a third solo movie.

And no need to apologise, only those being butthurt about should apologise. I got no words for solace, but sometimes unloading is just what offers that. It's fine

Sorry for your loss and yeah, no need to apologize on the contrary, if you need to vent out some stuff, please do.

@lazlodaytona - I’m sorry for your loss; thank you for allowing yourself to speak on your experience. Have you spoken to a grief counselor? U never have to go through it alone.

@lazlodaytona - I'm sorry for your loss, and like everyone else has been saying, there's no need to apologize. Losing family from such a hideous act is extremely difficult to get over. I hope you are reaching out to someone who can help you out.
lazlodaytona - 12/8/2023, 6:33 PM
@bkmeijer1 - thank u sir. you are so very kind
lazlodaytona - 12/8/2023, 6:36 PM
@Doomsday8888 - thank you dude. am still embarrassed to have put out all of that stuff online.
Thanks for being so nice.

@rockinsokinrobo - i see a therapist, and do not own any firearms (which I called the police to have documentation that I have nothing).
I am getting help. It is just taking a bit.

Thank you for your concern. Talking with people on this site makes me feel ok. I love u guys and you have no idea how much conversations with people like you means to me.

@rockinsokinrobo - Thank you and I have.

To be fair, you didn't get the director of this wrong again.

Progress 👍

Hate the animation style. Reminds me of migraines I have
FlopWatchers5 - 12/8/2023, 8:03 AM
great take. That film is the definitive SM film with this generation’s defining SM. The real one.
mastakilla39 - 12/8/2023, 8:08 AM
Thought Across the Spider-verse was overrated. Yes it was good but not "1 of the best sequels" ever made good. Doesn't feel like a complete film at all with that cliffhanger ending.
bkmeijer1 - 12/8/2023, 7:00 PM
@mastakilla39 - one of the best Spider-Man sequels? It won't top Spider-Man 2 though.

But yeah, it does feel very incomplete. Guess that's always the case with movies being split into two parts. This one is (unfortunately) no different

By Andrew Garfield?
What about Stephen King? 😜
DenimChicken - 12/8/2023, 9:55 AM
I love these movies and had an absolute blast watching both of them, but the cliffhanger ending was almost too much for me, and I knew it was coming… It just felt like it ended, which is I guess what they were going for. On second watch it didn’t feel as abrupt but yeah, maybe the only thing I didn’t love. Anyway great movies and soooo excited for the last one!
bkmeijer1 - 12/8/2023, 6:58 PM
@DenimChicken - I didn't mind the cliffhanger, but moreso that it just let another plotpoint completely unresolved: The Spot. Halfway through the movie he just disappeared
marvel72 - 12/8/2023, 10:06 AM
I don't think it's a masterpiece but it's very good.

It was cotton candy crap for kids, but I'm glad a lot of you enjoyed it.

The Winter Soldier was a great second movie... so was The Empire Strikes Back... and many might disagree with me, but so was Age of Ultron... they moved the everything up one notch from the originals... Across the Spiderverse was more or less equal to the first movie IMO... it didn't elevate the original and in many ways due to the use of stylized 3d for the main actors of Gwen and Miles i think it went down a notch.
bkmeijer1 - 12/8/2023, 6:57 PM
@JonC - gotta agree with you. I dare even say Age of Ultron was superior to Avengers in pretty much every way.

It is a masterpiece. Should be nominated for Best Picture, not just Best Animated Picture.
