Andrew Garfield urges fans to trust him in some Liar Lair fan art inspired by the repeated denials regarding his role in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
A new piece of fan art sees Andrew Garfield replace Jim Carrey in the poster for Liar Liar, calling out Garfield’s now-famous Spider-Man: No Way Home denials. Last year’s No Way Home has quickly become one of the highest-grossing films of all time. On top of being the most profitable film of the pandemic era, it’s also the third movie ever to earn over $800 billion in the U.S. As Jon Watts’ final installment in the MCU’s Homecoming trilogy, No Way Home follows Tom Holland’s Peter Parker/Spider-Man as he contends with villains from Sony’s past after Doctor Strange’s (Benedict Cumberbatch) cracks open the multiverse. In addition to the likes of Doc Ock (Alfred Molina), Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe), and Electro (Jamie Foxx), the film brings back the two previous live-action iterations of Spider-Man in Tobey Maguire and Garfield.
SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY
Even before the release of the film’s first trailer, word got out that several villains from past Spider-Man films would be appearing in No Way Home. That first trailer confirmed the inclusion of Molina’s Doc Ock while teasing the presence of the others. Following the success of Sony’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018), and the revelation that No Way Home would include legacy characters, fans immediately wanted to know if Garfield and Maguire were reprising their roles—something kept heavily under wraps. While Maguire did next-to-no interviews around the time of No Way Home’s release, Garfield spent nearly six months denying his involvement, saying “I did not get a call” while promoting other projects like Tick, Tick…Boom!

Graphic designer Samuel_cheve on Instagram recently shared a fan poster based on Liar Liar imagining Garfield as its lead. The piece sees Garfield holding an Oscar for what may be the cinematic deception of the decade—he also received a Best Actor nomination this year for his performance in Tick, Tick…Boom!—alongside the words “trust me.” Check it out below:

Director Tom Shadyac’s comedy classic Liar Liar (1997) sees Carrey play Fletcher Reede, an ace attorney whose dishonesty jeopardizes his relationships with friends and family – in particular his son, Max (Justin Cooper). In the film, Max wishes his dad would stop lying for an entire day, which results in Fletcher suddenly only being able to speak the truth during one of the biggest court cases of his career. While Fletcher’s truth-telling odyssey benefits himself and those around him, it’s safe to say Garfield’s deceptive journey benefited No Way Home.
Garfield has said the only people he felt guilty lying to about No Way Home were his high-school friends. Still, he’s maintained that he did not have trouble lying to everyone else, as it served the film’s biggest reveal. Though many suspected Garfield and Maguire would appear in the film, Garfield’s sometimes hilarious struggle planted seeds of doubt and contributed to some truly memorable movie-going experiences for audiences.
