No rumor is bigger than the one that Andrew Garfield won’t stop denying — the possibly very poorly kept secret that Sony Spider-Man actors Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will appear in prominent roles alongside Marvel’s Peter Parker, Tom Holland.
Despite the internet’s insistence that Garfield and Maguire are shoe-ins for the Spider-Man 3 cast list, the Amazing Spider-Man actor simply refuses to confirm.
