Over the years, just about everyone involved in “The Amazing Spider-Man” film series has been asked about a third film. Even after Marvel Studios rebooted the character into the MCU, seemingly everyone involved in the Garfield franchise has been questioned about a possible follow-up, whether they’d be interested in returning, and what they might want to see the project become.
With “No Way Home” opening the door, it’s worth taking a look at what they’ve had to say, starting with Sally Field’s apparent lack of interest in reprising her role as Aunt May. She told The Hollywood Reporter in 2016 that it was “hard to find a three-dimensional character in it,” making an appearance in a third film unlikely, though perhaps a new story and a better script could convince her to return.
What we do know is that co-star Dane DeHaan, who played Harry Osborn — the villainous Green Goblin — seems like he’d be happy to make a comeback. “I would certainly love to make some kind of movie like that again,” the actor told Radio Times in 2021 when asked about rumors that he might appear in Marvel’s “Spider-Man: No Way Home.”
As for star Andrew Garfield, he’s said he’d readily don the spandex again but only under the right circumstances. “I am definitely open to that,” he told the Happy Sad Confused podcast in 2022, adding, “It would have to be something very unique, very special, and of service to the audience, of service to the character.”
