No Way Home is full of fun nods to Spidey's history, and we're now learning that one of the film's best references was improvised by Andrew Garfield.
Andrew Garfield Is Now Meme God
During a conversation all 3 Spider-Men had with Deadline's Pete Hammond, Tom Holland said figuring out all of the three Peters' interactions in the movie was a fun process.

The Spidey Threesome
“It was so collaborative, it was so playful.” Holland said. “From cracking Tobey’s back to coming up with the idea of pointing at us, it was all stuff that we came up with on the day. And it was just a lot of fun to be able to play with three guys in Spider-Man suits. It was a strange experience but one I won't ever forget."
Garfield has previously spoken to that improvisation. In an interview earlier this month on The Happy Sad Confused podcast, Garfield shared the story of how the Spider-Man pointing meme made its way into No Way Home.
Here's How It All .....Began.....
"It kind of happened naturally on that scaffolding scene with Peter 1, Peter 2, Peter 3, like all that," Garfield said. "I remember having a lightning bolt and running into set and telling [director] Jon [Watts], 'I got it, I got it.'"
Hmm Didn't Take Long To Begin
The Spider-Man pointing meme is from the Spider-Man animated series, where Spider-Man runs into a villain impersonating Spider-Man, causing them to point at each other. When rumors about Garfield and Maguire's involvement in No Way Home were swirling, many fans were using this meme on social media, hoping it would make its way into the movie.
