In late 2021, Church reprised the role for the crossover film Spider-Man: No Way Home, returning alongside Maguire’s incarnation of Spidey. An immense success, the film was still enjoying its theatrical run when the casting process began for Twisted Metal, and Church is convinced that his Sandman return was what put him into the conversation for the role of Agent Stone.
