Andrew Garfield On Playing Spider-Man

The world hasn’t really heard of Andrew Garfield yet. The world will pretty soon though. The actor has some pretty meaty parts coming up in the likes of Mark Romanek‘s Never Let Me Go and David Fincher‘s Facebook movie The Social Network, both of which are released in the second half of 2010.  I have a feeling that the Summer of 2012 will be Garfield’s year though, as that is when Marc Webb’s Spider-Man reboot is scheduled to hit cinemas. July 3, 2012 to be exact.

The Hollywood Reporter recently managed to grab Garfield for one of his first interviews since bagging the high-profile part. So, what did the future Peter Parker have to say?

I have been waiting for this phone call for 24 years, for someone to call me up and say, “Hey, we want you to pretend to be a character that you’ve always wanted to be all your life, and we’re going to do it with cool cameras and cool effects and you’re going to feel like you’re swinging through New York City. Do you want to do that?” [laughs] “Let me just consult with my seven-year old self and see what he thinks…” So my seven-year-old self started screaming in my soul and saying, This is what we’ve been waiting for. Like every young boy who feels stronger on the inside than they look on the outside, any skinny boy basically who wishes their muscles matched their sense of injustice, God, it’s just the stuff that dreams are made of, for sure. It’s a true f*cking honor to be part of this symbol that I actually think is a very important symbol and it’s meant a great deal to me, and it continues to mean something to people. So yeah, I feel like I’ve been preparing for it for a while. Ever since Halloween when I was four years old and I wore my first Spider-Man costume.

I’m kind of pleased that a British actor has bagged the part of Parker for the reboot, and I really love Marc Webb’s (500) Days Of Summer and the way that that movie flowed and warmed the heart. Really looking forward to what he can do with the webbed one.
