The team of VFX artists “Proves” from No Way Home
Andrew Garfield has claimed that leaked footage of him on the set of Spider-Man: No Way Home was faked, but VFX artists seem to think otherwise.
A while ago a clip surfaced apparently showing actor Andrew Garfield, again in Spider-Man costume, on the set of Marvel Studios’ Spider-Man: No Path Home. This apparently confirmed he would reprise his role as Sony’s Peter Parker. The Incredible Spider-Man movies, at least until Garfield claims it was fake.
Corridor Crew’s VFX artists recently reviewed the clip, along with a video that subsequently circulated, claiming to reveal how the footage was in fact a deepfake. Garfield’s claims and the “deepfake” clip have apparently been debunked by the Corridor Crew. Niko and Sam suggested that while it wasn’t impossible to fake the leaked BTS clip, there was too much detail that the AI would just be far too unlikely to capture and include. There was too much consistency that suggested it really was Garfield in the clip.
Garfield has denied his involvement in Spider-Man: No Path Home several times, in several different interviews. He previously explained, “I understand why people panic about this concept because I’m a fan too… You can’t help but imagine scenes and moments from” Oh, my God, how cool that would be. if they did? ‘ He continued, “But it’s important for me to officially say it’s not something I’m aware I’m involved with. “
He added: “But I know I won’t be able to say anything that will convince anyone that I don’t know what’s going on,” he said. “No matter what I say, I’m screwed. Either it’s going to be really disappointing for people, or it’s going to be really exciting.” Later, when asked about the leaked video, Garfield said, “I heard about it. And I saw it. And it’s a Photoshop.”
Garfield played Spider-Man in the The Incredible Spider-Man and its sequel between 2012 and 2014. A reboot was in preparation at the end of the 2000s, before that of Sam Raimi. Spider-Man 4 had been officially canceled. The reboot was announced by Sony, with director Marc Webb attached, days after Raimi left his project. The films were set in a different universe and told a very different story.
There are a wide variety of theories regarding the cinematic universes and franchises that Spider-Man: No Way Home could bring to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The official trailer confirmed that Alfred Molina would once again be donning Doc Ock’s tentacles from the Sam Raimi trilogy, and even suggested that Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin would reappear on the big screen.
