Andrew Garfield will not be in the upcoming movie Spider-Man: No Way Home. At least, that’s what the actor is desperate to have us all believe. Ever since rumors of former Spider-Men Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire appearing in Sony and Marvel’s next joint project started to spread, Garfield has been fending off reporters who all have the same question: Are you in No Way Home?
To Garfield’s credit, he’s had more success keeping his appearance secret than his supposed co-stars. Earlier this year, Alfred Molina spilled the beans about Doc Ock’s return in an interview. That probably explains why we saw the Spider-Man 2 villain in the No Way Home trailer.

Daredevil actor Charlie Cox has struggled to keep his story straight as well. In a recent interview, Cox said that he “wouldn’t want to ruin something either way.” It makes him “a little anxious” and it’s “a difficult thing to talk about.” If he’s not in the movie, what’s so difficult about it?
Lying is not in everyone’s repertoire, even those of actors who pretend to be different people every day. Watching the likes of Garfield and Cox squirm can be a bit entertaining, but with
