This may not seem like much of a spoiler at this point, but just in case you still haven't seen Spider-Man: No Way Home yet, we will be discussing major plot details from this point on.
As we all knew he would after numerous leaks, Andrew Garfield returned as his take on Spider-Man to swing into action alongside Tobey Maguire and Tom Holland's versions of the webhead in No Way Home. The Amazing Spider-Man star left a big impression on fans, so much so that #MakeTASM3 began trending on social media shortly after the movie's release.
Of course, this inevitably led to "rumors" that Sony Pictures was actively developing a third TASM movie with Garfield back in the red and blue suit, and a recent post from the actor's stunt double only fanned the flames.
William Spencer responded to a fan congratulating him on “getting the call for ASM3” by thanking him for his comment, and several sites took this as confirmation of the report - despite Spencer saying he knew nothing about any plans for a third instalment in an earlier post. Unfortunately, common sense rarely prevails on the internet, and Spencer has been forced to clarify his response with a follow-up post.
Sony Pictures/Marvel Studios have almost certainly acknowledged the outpouring of support for Garfield following his return to the role, and while we could well see his take on Spidey again at some point, a third TASM movie seems like a bit of a long shot.
