Andrew Garfield: The New 'Spider-man'!

Andrew Garfield is slated to star as the next Spider-man, according to Variety.

The 26-year-old British actor is best known for starring in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and the upcoming film Social Network costarring Justin Timberlake.

The new Spider-man movie, directed by Marc Webb, will be a reboot of the original film and will be in 3D.

“Though his name may be new to many, those who know this young actor’s work understand his extraordinary talents,” Marc said of Andrew (via THR). “He has a rare combination of intelligence, wit, and humanity.”

Production is expected to begin at the end of the year. The new film is set to be released on July 3, 2012.

DO YOU THINK Andrew Garfield will make a good Peter Parker?

  • K

    His hair is too big for his head… needs a haircut…

  • Celia

    What!!! He’s a terrible choice!! Who is he??

  • Alaia

    Of course I was going to expect stupid, superficial posts. This site attracts a lot of stupid teenyboppers who comment on people purely based on their looks. He is actually a talented actor. Does Spiderman need to be portrayed by a hunk? Grow up!

  • Ali

    Hope his acting skills are impress enough to overshadow his unattractiveness.

  • wendy

    Josh Hutcherson

  • abby

    oh my god im so happy! i love andrew garfield.

    and by the way give him a chance.

    he won best british actor for his film boy a. (which happens to be my favorite film.)

  • Sarahlina

    @Celia: This comment is a joke, yes? Because you know him, he’s a bad choice? God, some people on this site are stupid. He’s sorry he’s not world famous.

  • Leila

    I love this twink. But I can’t see him playing Spiderman.

  • rudy

    just bieber would be better

  • S


  • Tash

    He is adorable in real life and a very solid actor. LOL at people hating on him because they have no idea who he is yet.


    he is so gorgeous and charming! and he can ACT!

  • sarah

    I find him so, so cute.

  • w11

    Andrew is really a very good actor. I think he’s better than this, really. I wanted Logan Lerman. He would’ve been a better fit. Andrew Garfield is really talented, but I just can’t see him a comic book character.

  • Jenna

    @Tash: Of course they have no idea who he is. They probably cite Taylor Lautner as their favourite actor and think The CW is the best channel ever. Maybe they should rent Boy A and Red Riding.

  • whatever

    He’s better and a lot cuter than Toby.

  • London

    I’m excited about this actually. You guys are going to love him, trust :)

  • Matt

    He’s a good actor….but he’s going to be carrying a huge franchise on his shoulders. This may be his big break….good luck to him.

  • Deedz

    What…happened to Jamie Bell?

  • dee

    I’m just suprised they actually chose an American!

  • erin

    but he’s so much better than this. I always saw him as an independent film type guy but a job is a job.

  • http://facebook ruthless

    NO! logan lerman, josh hutcherson, or michael angerano

  • mailey

    better than toby maguire. never liked him as spiderman.

  • blah

    Nice…. he’s way hotter than TM.

  • Carol

    Horrible choice. It’s just as bad as casting Chris Helmsworth for Thor.

    They should have given this role to Aaron Johnson.

  • your new worst enemy

    Gosh…. groundbreaking stuff.

  • again

    Seriously, I don’t care who they pick for this as I don’t see why we need a Spiderman remake. Why? What for? Who on earth thinks this is going to be successful??


    bull. we want tobey mcguire.

  • Ismail


    He won a BAFTA award, he is so talentend. I freaked out when i figured that the guy from the percy jackson movie was among the contenders.

    this actor is great.

  • tobey

    no waaayyyy noooo i want tobey

  • krista

    NO! it needs to be josh hutcherson!!!! :(

  • belyfi

    He is by far one of the most talented young actors in the world. Very, very good choice.

  • itshould’vebeenlogan

    yeah..they just made the spiderman franchise LAME. logan lerman would’ve been the best peter parker ever!

  • Huh?

    Never heard of him and he sure looks like a geek.



  • jessica

    Didn’t they want someone young? If they are starting from the first movie… they should of went for someone younger. What a waste of money for this movie.

  • Luisa

    I really don’t like this… he looks like a blond Orlando Bloom… not.

  • justin Beiber iz shit

    @rudy: honestly i dnt know much about Andrew Garfield, but i do know alot about spidey and he jst doesnt look like a Peter Parker to me. I jst hope he does better toby.

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    …Almost everyone on the planet wanted Logan Lerman. This whole reboot – highschool spider-man thing blows anyways. It’s a horrible idea. I have no idea if this guy can act, and I wouldnt call him handsome or even decent looking but I guess he’s better than that Hutchingson kid.. That dude looks like a straight tard-tard. Oh well.. If he sucks he’ll just do a movie or two and then they’ll replace him too. LOL

  • justin Beiber iz shit

    dnt know who he is, i dnt really care, as long as he can play the role. he looks like a nerd.

  • cocoon

    “he looks like a nerd” and what did Toby Maguire look like? LOL

  • Michael Freitag

    I want “TOBEY MAGUIRE”!!!!

  • Lei

    I was expecting someone a little younger because the film’s going back go the high school setting. But, I recently saw Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, and nevertheless, as an actor he caught my eye. I think he’ll do great.
