Tom revealed that it was not reaching out to Andrew Garfield when he took over the role that he still regrets to this day.

“Something I can look back on now with a little bit of clarity and regret is that I never called [Garfield] when I took over as Spider-Man,” he shared. “Had someone said to me after my second movie that I was done and this other kid was taking over, I would’ve been heartbroken.”

He added, “So looking back, I wish I had the chance to make amends with him, but this film was our opportunity. It was not only an opportunity for him to make peace with the character and the studio, but it was also an opportunity for me and him to have this moment where we realize we could share this thing. The look on his face when he saves Zendaya is totally genuine, and I’m really proud of him.”

In the same interview, Tom opened up about being eternally grateful to both Andrew and Tobey Maguire for returning as their respective Peter Parkers for the cameo in Spider-Man: No Way Home.

“I said to [Maguire and Garfield], ‘Thank you, thank you, thank you for doing this,” Tom said. “Thank you for being here. Thank you for elevating Spider-Man in the ways that you have. Thank you for being so gracious and allowing me to share this with you. Thank you for taking a leap of faith and coming back.’ Tobey hadn’t acted in nearly 10 years, so we all embraced each other, and we were all crying because it meant so much to us.”

If you missed it, it was revealed that it was Andrew who came up on how to include that viral Spider-Man meme in the movie. Here’s how he did it…
