The ongoing battle between film fans and non-disclosure agreements continues.

In a new interview, actor Andrew Garfield-who played Spider-Man in two of Sonys filmssaid that despite what you may have read on the internet, he hasnt been called to reprise the role in the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home. Garfield was speaking on the Happy Sad Confused podcast when he described, in detail, how he feels seeing unsubstantiated rumors online and how he wishes he could just squash them. Listen, I cant speak for anyone else but myself. They might be doing something, but I aint got a call, Garfield said in regards to the new film. However, when asked point blank if hes in the film or not, Garfield answered by saying Havent I just said that? Which… he sort of did? More heavily implied it, really. You can watch the full clip below.

Youd love to take Garfield at face value but you cant deny these two facts; 1) if he is in the film, he would not be able to say either way, 2) if he isnt in the film, he probably shouldnt say because cutting off buzz or the possibility wouldnt be looked favorably upon by people in the industry. So giving a definitive answer is not a possibility. Whether hes in the movie or not though, his answer here is a masterclass of semantics. That he didnt get a call doesnt mean hes not in the movie. It could mean he got an email. It could me he was Facetimed. Or his agent was called and set up a meeting. Oh, sure, it implies that hes not in it, but he doesnt say it, which both satisfies the purpose of the interview, but also the secrecy he would have been sworn to the studio.

Personally? I think hes lying here. His choice of words, the stammering, the fact that hes a great actorits the perfect performance under the circumstances. If thats the case though, I do wish he didnt have to lie but such is the ongoing battle between journalists and fans hungry for information and actors who sign their lives away to be in these movies. (Unless theyre Alfred Molina, who straight up said he was in the movie.) Well find out what the case is in a few months when Spider-Man: No Way Home opens on December 17.
