Andrew Garfield explains Peter Parker in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’
Spider-Man returns this summer with an entire new cast, new director and somewhat new direction. The new Total Film magazine features an interview with star Andrew Garfield discussing this new Peter Parker in “The Amazing Spider-man.”
“He’s a lone wolf…erratic, angry, (and) rebellious. Peter is an outsider. Because that’s what he has to do to protect himself. He was dropped once; he doesn’t want to be dropped again. It’s difficult to get close to him.”
Fans loved Tobey M Maguire as Marvel’s webhead, who starred in three Spider-Man films, all directed by Sam Raimi. The “Social Network” star reassures fans that Parker is still a ‘nerd’, yet physical as Spider-Man
“It’s cool to be a nerd now. The stunts are homegrown and grass roots. I plastered my walls with page after page of artwork and spent hours trying to get my body as extreme as possible. I didn’t want to be a bulky guy. I wanted to be a skinny kid beating the crap out of big guys.”
“The Amazing Spider-Man” opens on July 4th, 2012.
