  • Warning: There are major spoilers ahead for "Spider-Man: No Way Home."

  • Andrew Garfield spoke to Variety about returning as Spider-Man/Peter Parker in the movie.

  • Garfield said that Tom Holland was "jealous" of his Spider-Man suit's zippers.

Andrew Garfield said that he and fellow Spider-Men actors Tobey Maguire and Tom Holland spoke about superhero suit challenges while on the set of "Spider-Man: No Way Home."

"There was talk about going to the bathroom and, you know, padding around the package," Garfield told Variety. "We talked about what worked for each of us."

The "'Tick, Tick ... Boom!" star also said that Holland was envious of one particular feature of Garfield's costume.

"Tom was jealous because I have little zippers in my suit that I can get my hands out of very easily," he said. "To work his phone, he had to use his nose because he couldn't access his hands. We would have deeper conversations, too, and talk about our experiences with the character."

Holland himself has spoken about the hardships of wearing his superhero suit on many occasions.

During an appearance on NBC's "Late Night With Seth Meyers" in June 2019, the actor said that he wears the most difficult suit in the MCU.

"I have no skin showing," he said. "I'm straight-up, head-to-toe in lycra. I can't even use my phone, and I'm 23. I use my phone a lot. I've become so good at liking pictures with my nose."

And because Holland wears the material on his hands, he can't scratch any itches.

Staying hydrated also requires running a tube filled with liquid through one of the eye cut-outs in order to reach his mouth.

During an appearance on "Live With Kelly and Ryan" in 2017, the "Cherry" star also said that going to the bathroom requires planning "45 minutes in advance" because of how long it takes to release himself from the suit.

Prior to Holland taking on the role of the iconic web-slinger in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), Maguire and Garfield each portrayed the character in separate franchises.

Maguire, who played Spider-Man/Peter Parker in Sam Raimi's trilogy released between 2002 and 2007, spoke about his experience wearing the Spidey suit in a bonus disc as part of the first film's home release.

Maguire described the suit as "comfortable" and "flexible," but said that "zippers would break, so they would end up sewing me into the suit." If he needed water or a bathroom break, it was a lengthy process.

Garfield, who starred as the web-slinger in Marc Webb's "Amazing Spider-Man" films in 2012 and 2014, previously opened up about his suit being uncomfortable during an appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" in 2012.

"It's made of something that's designed to make you irritated," he said. "I don't know what the exact name is, but that's the description on the [label]."

Maguire, Garfield, and Holland share the screen in "No Way Home," Holland's third standalone Spidey film that was released in December 2021.

Garfield, who denied his involvement in multiple interviews prior to the film's release, told Variety that he and Maguire filmed their scenes over the course of two weeks.

Fans who have seen the movie know that the two actors appear in Holland's universe after a spell cast by Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) goes wrong, leading to the appearances of visitors from the multiverse.

Maguire's and Garfield's characters act as mentors to Holland's web-slinger, talk about their experiences fighting bad guys, and team up to cure the film's returning villains of their afflictions before sending them back to their own universes.
