Remember when Andrew Garfield (and his possibly fake butt) had to lie and pretend he wasn’t in Spider-Man: No Way Home? Those days are long over.

Tom Holland, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield posed for the ultimate comic photo shoot to promote the upcoming release of “Spider-Man: No Way Home” on 4K and digital streaming.
“Your new lock screen just dropped,” they quipped.
The meme depicts three animated Spider-Mans point at each other — a scene which originated from the 1960s “Spider-Man” cartoon, during an episode that features the real superhero and two imposters.

The image has been widely used on social media as a visual metaphor for hypocrisy.
It was Garfield, 38, according to an interview with Holland, 25, for IndieWire, who suggested the three live-action Spider-Men — each iconic in their own rite — pay homage to the gag while filming “No Way Home.”
Spider-Man fanatics, of course, were bugging out. “Now release a poster,” one pleaded.
The third installment of Marvel’s blockbuster iteration starring Holland as the arachnid superhero, which is also the top-earning Spider-Man movie thus far, is nominated for Best Visual Effects at this year’s Oscars.
Maguire, 46, starred in Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man” trilogy between 2002 and 2007 for Sony Pictures, who rebooted the character with Garfield as “The Amazing Spider-Man” in 2012 and in the 2014 sequel.
“Spider-Man: No Way Home” is set to swing home on March 22 on digital and April 12 on 4K UHD and Blu-ray.
