Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures delivered the movie of a lifetime with the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home in December. Bringing Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire's Spider-Men into the MCU alongside Tom Holland and a handful of past villains was an overwhelming success as the threequel continues to make its mark on the entertainment industry.
Although this movie had plenty of thrilling storylines and moments featuring Doctor Strange and the five antagonists, Garfield and Maguire's web-slingers sent fans into a frenzy as soon as they came in through the Sling Ring portals. Bringing three generations of Spider-Men together was one of No Way Home's biggest goals as it added to the MCU's narrative, and with those two involved, hype skyrocketed instantly.
Part of what made Garfield and Maguire's returns so special was seeing them in full costume again - costumes that were taken directly from their past solo adventures outside of the MCU. Recently, a late addition to the action shared one of the best looks yet at the costuming for Garfield's Amazing Spider-Man as he came back following a seven-year hiatus.
Garfield's Spider-Man: No Way Home Suit
Omar Zaki, who worked as a photo-double/stand-in on two days of reshoots for Spider-Man: No Way Home, took to Instagram to share images of himself in Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man suit. This suit was first used in 2014's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and came back into play for Garfield's return in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
One image was a selfie showing off the front of the suit, mostly featuring the long and slender Spider-Man logo running down the chest.
Also included is a shot of Zaki in the full suit without the mask as he captures the memories of his experience on set.

Zaki also shared the following caption with the post, revealing that he was needed because both Garfield and his regular stunt double were unavailable for a couple of days of reshoots. Being the same size as Andrew, the production team thought he would be able to "fit in the suit," although he was only needed for the possibility that simple shots needed to still be filmed:
"First off, I’m incredibly grateful for the amazing opportunity (as seen in the videos) and do not take it for granted at all but I also want to make sure there is no confusion and that I’m crystal clear about my involvement in this Film. They needed to reshoot/pickup some simple scenes in the movie but Andrew Garfield was unavailable and one of Andrew’s normal Stunt Doubles (@iwilliamspencer) was also unavailable. The Stunt Coordinator called me because I was the same size as Andrew and he thought I’d fit in the suit (spoilers, he was right). He explained to me that no Stunts were needed at this time and they mainly needed someone who could embody the character to potentially act in a scene or do some simple movement if it came up (not Stunts)."
Garfield’s Suit in Its No Way Home Glory
Zaki's specific experience on Spider-Man: No Way Home wasn't anything too extensive, as he was only needed for what appears to be "in case of emergency" shots of Andrew Garfield's Peter Parker. Thankfully, the pics that he shared give fans the best up-close look yet at Andrew Garfield's suit that first debuted in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
To put it simply, these red-and-blue duds came into the MCU exactly the way fans remember them from 2014, which was something that the No Way Home team made sure to do as they differentiated between all three Spideys on-screen together. While fans got to see Garfield actually make his first suit in 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man, this suit became an iconic look for the hero and one of the most well-reviewed Spidey suits ever created.
The moment Garfield came into frame wearing this suit sent fans into a frenzy, and throughout his entire time on-screen, he never took it off for a moment alongside Maguire and Holland's Peter Parkers. After six months of denying that he would even appear in the movie, the fact that his suit was shown off so prominently is one of the MCU's biggest achievements as his story continued in a big way.
From saving Zendaya's MJ to his improvised "I love you guys" line, fans saw Garfield fully embody his version of Spidey once again wearing the suit from both The Amazing Spider-Man movies. Whether it returns in the MCU or in other MCU adjacent movies is a mystery, but at the very least, it got its shine in the biggest Spider-Man movie to date.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is now playing in theaters worldwide.
