This week I came across an interview with Andrew Garfield about the new Amazing Spider-Man movie. He talks about what playing Spider-man means to him as an actor and as a fan. He claims he is lucky and unlucky about playing spider-man because he calls himself a fan first and foremost. He also goes on to talk about the various comic book runs and how he used them to his advantage on portraying Peter and Spidey.
The best part of these videos is when he talks about how excited he was to see the first (Sam Raimi) Spider-Man movie. He was so excited that he bought a bootleg/pirated version of it. Of course, the biggest rumor going around that everyone is asking about is when will Spider-Man make a cameo in Avengers?
The new trailer is out now (more on this on SSWL) and I was flabbergasted by it. I literally had to pick up my jaw from the floor I loved it so much. THIS is the Spider-Man I was expecting to see in the first movie. A jokey, fun, and geek Parker/Spider-man. Emma Watson and Andrew Garfield look great together and look like they will have great chemistry on screen.
One of the best parts of the trailer is that we get a quick look at the Lizard. I’m not a fan of the look they went with, but I have no problem looking past it as it still looks amazing. Marc Webb was the perfect director for this movie. I enjoyed 500 Days of Summer and it seems like we will get a more down to earth and real Spider-Man. Not in the sense of The Dark Knight, but more in the sense of the comic books. There was a screening/sneak peek a few days ago that I wish I was able to get tickets for so that I could share my experience, but I was unable to. Maybe for the next movie, SSWL Network could get an invite (*smiley face*).
So what do you think? Are you as big of a Spider-Man fan as I am? Did you like the trailer? We’d love to hear from you, so comment below and don’t forget to click that subscribe button on iTunes.
