Andrew Garfield Talks THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, Putting on the Costume for the First Time, His Favorite Spidey Villains, and More

     June 28, 2012


Several weeks ago, Sony Pictures invited us to attend the press junket The Amazing Spider-Man.  The reboot takes a grittier, more realistic approach to Peter Parker’s journey to becoming your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, and sees the wall-crawler struggling to come to grips with the mysterious of disappearance of his parents.  For more on the film, click here for all of our previous coverage.

During my on-camera interview with Andrew Garfield, who plays Peter Parker/Spider-Man, we talked about why he connected with the comic books and the character, how the finished film compared to what he envisioned when he first read the script, the experience of putting on the costume for the first time, and what villains he’d like to fight in the sequels.  Hit the jump to check out the interview.  The Amazing Spider-Man opens in 3D on July 3rd.
