Andrew Garfield spoke about the bond he formed with fellow Spider-Man actors Tobey Maguire and Tom Holland when they filmed "Spider-Man: No Way Home."

Garfield had a virtual chat with Rachel Zegler for Variety’s "Actors on Actors," presented by Amazon Studios. During their conversation, Garfield told Zegler she's in his favorite movie of the year, "West Side Story." She responded that he was also in her favorite film in 2021, "Tick, Tick … Boom!" The 20-year-old actress added she was also a super fan of Garfield's surprise return as Spider-Man in Holland's superhero flick, released last month.

Garfield then talked to Zegler about filming "Spider-Man: No Way Home" with Holland and Maguire. According to him, they created a "brotherhood" on the set.

"There was a brotherhood that got created between Tobey [Maguire], Tom [Holland] and myself," he told Zegler. "And that’s healing. We were like, 'Oh, my God, you find it hard to pee in the suit? I find it hard to pee in the suit!'"

Speaking about his version of Peter Parker, Garfield said there was a "very emotional moment" when the first scene was pitched to him. He described it as the "most kind of healing thing for my Peter Parker."

"Across universes being able to rescue the love of my younger brother in this other multidimensional universe. That felt quite profound. I was like, 'Oh, well, that’s spooky destiny, ‘Sliding Doors’ stuff,'" Garfield explained. "The director, Jon Watts, is incredibly brilliant and smart and funny, but also has a really big heart. That’s what I find so moving about Tom’s films — they’re just full of goodness. And what he creates with Zendaya and with Jacob Batalon is pure love."

Garfield reunited with Holland and Maguire last week to talk to Deadline's Pete Hammond. During the chat, he talked about how the first two Peter Parker played by him and Maguire helped Holland's version. He described how their characters' reunion showcased a beautiful "brotherhood." Maguire and Garfield were able to appear in Holland's movie due to its multiverse concept.

"And I love the destiny feeling of the multiverse expanding in this film, and actually, without Tobey’s Peter and Andrew’s Peter being present for Tom’s Peter at this very moment, he may not become the Peter Parker that he’s supposed to become," Garfield explained. "Getting three Spider-Men together could go one of two ways, and I think it’s a testament to these guys that it went the way that it went, which was a brotherhood, which is just beautiful."

"Spider-Man: No Way Home" is still showing. It has dominated the box office for weeks and made $10.4 million over the weekend, Variety reported.
