Now that fans have had plenty of time to Spider-Man: No Way Home, the powers that be have finally allowed Andrew Garfield to speak on his role in the major team-up.

"At first, Zendaya picks up a candlestick or something to like threaten me with in that first scene where I come in, but then there was this basket of bread," Garfield said on the podcast. "That was her just going, 'Can I just throw bread at him?' and [director] Jon [Watts] was like, 'Yeah, throw bread at him.'"
In that same podcast interview, Garfield expressed his pleasure in being involved with the flick, calling it a full-=circle moment for the character he started to play in Sony's Amazing Spider-Man franchise.

So for me, coming back and actually getting some more time to have fun with it, and to give the character some closure, and to play and the be the version of Spider-Man that I was always wanting to get to, and to be with Tobey and Tom and the rest of everybody in the movie, that was healing. It was just an incredible full-circle moment,
