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.
