Will The Amazing Spider-Man 3 Ever Happen?

The following article contains spoilers for "Spider-Man: No Way Home."

"Spider-Man: No Way Home" felt like a celebration of all the things people love about Spider-Man. It's filled with plenty of humor and heart, and even before the quote is said, the movie perfectly exemplifies the message of "With great power comes great responsibility." Tom Holland's Peter Parker continually sacrifices what he wants most so that the world and those around him can remain safe. 

To further drive the point home that this movie was for the fans, the film brought back the other two live-action Spider-Men, played by Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. They play off Holland's version spectacularly, but one of the most heartbreaking scenes in the entire movie is when the three share the trauma they've all experienced as a direct result of their actions. It reminded viewers of why they fell in love with each Spider-Man in the first place, and it appears as though the reunion has got some fans thinking of a new direction Spider-Man on the big screen could take.

The Amazing Spider-Man 3 trends in aftermath of No Way Home

Andrew Garfield had the chance to play Peter Parker in two "Spider-Man" films before the series was abruptly canceled in favor of inducting the web-head in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Tom Holland's version, who was introduced in 2016's "Captain America: Civil War." It's one of the great "What ifs" in cinematic history of what a third Garfield-led Spider-Man flick would've looked like, and it appears as though his appearance in "No Way Home" has reignited fans' interest in seeing his trilogy completed. 

On Monday, December 20, "The Amazing Spider-Man 3" was trending on Twitter with fans clamoring to see Andrew Garfield in the red tights once again. One user, @ReptiedNews, likened the push to another fabled superhero movie movement, "The Amazing Spider-Man 3 needs to become the next Snyder Cut movement." @thejstoobs even offered this theory as to what direction the sequel could take: "Andrew coming back as an older Peter Parker ready to heal, meeting a woman who's sarcastic & guarded & telling her 'you're a deeply mistrusting person' only to find out her name is MJ & he just got his second chance would fix me. It would fix us all."

It's vital to bear in mind this is all just fan chatter at this point. Sony has yet to comment on whether "The Amazing Spider-Man 3" is even a possibility or if Andrew Garfield would want to return to the role in a leading capacity. Still, fan movements have done a lot of good in the past, and it could very well work this time, too.
