When Spider-Man: No Way Home was shooting, and any surprise guests were limited strictly to the realms of rumor and speculation, barely a day went by without somebody on social media claiming they’d seen Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Kirsten Dunst, Willem Dafoe, Deborah Ann Woll, and countless more hanging around Atlanta, where the majority of production took place.
One of the earliest viral stories came from a DoorDash employee, who offered that he’d delivered food to an unnamed address, only to be greeted by Garfield at the door. At the time, there was widespread skepticism about Marc Webb’s Peter Parker being so brazen as to order takeout when he was out in public denying he was in the movie, but it’s 100% true.
During his appearance on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Garfield was asked whether he was in fact the man who had ordered DoorDash when nobody was supposed to know he was even in the city, and he was. That was the first time Twitter had latched onto the possibility that he and Maguire could really be showing up in No Way Home, and we all know how things turned out in the end.
Big props to the DoorDash guy for his groundbreaking exclusive, then, even if he wasn’t 100% sure at the time.
