Marvel Cinematic Universe Fans, especially Spider-Man ones, were thrilled when they saw Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire join in Spider-Man: No Way Home, joining Tom Holland.
But it seems like the film “Tick, Tick… Boom!” director Lin-Manuel Miranda was aware of Andrew Garfield’s cameo in the film.
Recently, the director appeared on Jimmy Fallon’s talk show. During the conversation, Miranda revealed how he figured out Garfield’s cameo in the MCU film even though Andrew lied about it.
Miranda said, “So the day it leaked he might be involved, he was on my set. We were still filming, and between shots, I kind of quietly went over to him and was like, ‘Andrew, are you in the new Spider-Man?’”
He revealed about Andrew Garfield’s high-pitched response to that and how he knew it was a lie, Miranda further said, “His exact reaction was, ‘What?! Shut up! Shut up! Hahaha! Shut up!’” then the director imitated Garfield’s nervous laughter and said matter-of-factly, “And I walked away thinking, ‘Oh, he’s in the new Spider-Man.’”
Meanwhile, Andrew also revealed that his dad, brother, and mother knew of his cameo as Spider-Man in 2019 along with his agent. The 38-year-old actor also disclosed lying to his The Amazing Spider-Man co-star Emma Stone about it while being quizzed about it.
