Andrew Garfield reveals how Sony reacted to leaked images from Spider-Man: No Way Home surfacing on the internet, as Sony and Marvel tried their best to run a controlled marketing campaign for the movie while trying to keep the involvement of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield a secret.

Andrew Garfield reveals Sony’s reaction to leaks

Speaking to The Wrap, Andrew Garfield said that when the leaked images from Spider-Man: No Way Home emerged on the internet, he freaked out and asked Sony for advice on how to proceed from there, and they told him that they wouldn’t do anything about it and recommended that he continued with his denial of involvement in the project.

I worked so hard to keep it secret that I was in Atlanta shooting.

All these leaks were happening, and I was like, ‘Oh, my God, guys, what the hell is going on? I’m working so hard here to stay secret, and then here’s an image of me with Tobey!’

And they’re like, ‘No, no, we’re gonna keep it quiet.’

‘OK, I’ll keep denying it.’

I was happy to do it, but it was a lot of work on everyone’s part. It obviously gave people a big thrill in the theater, and what more do you want from a theater experience than a thrill?

One of the leaked on-set photos showed the trio of Andrew Garfield, Tobey Maguire and Tom Holland together in a scene, as well as a photo of Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock behind the scenes. And when the images were first leaked online, they were unverifiable as the photos were shared using fake accounts.

Sony producer Amy Pascal also spoke about the issues of spoilers for Spider-Man: No Way Home, emphasizing that they ruin the movie experience for the audience. Marvel boss Kevin Feige also addressed the problem of spoilers and rumors, saying that fans should keep their expectations in check as being invested in unofficial information could lead them to disappointment.
