Andrew Garfield: Spidey Suit for 'EW' Cover!

Andrew Garfield: Spidey Suit for 'EW' Cover!

Andrew Garfield feels his Spidey senses tingling on the cover of Entertainment Weekly‘s latest issue, on newsstands Friday (July 15).

Here’s what the 27-year-old English actor, who will hit the big screen in The Amazing Spider-Man next year, had to share:

On relating to Peter Parker: “I always felt stronger inside than I looked on the outside, which got me into trouble. I related to Peter Parker so much because I felt like someone else inside. I loved the comic books and the animated TV series, and I even dressed up as Spider-Man as a kid. My brother was Superman.”

On checking out the first Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire Spidey film: “That rekindled everything. I bought a pirated copy on Portobello Road and watched it over and over with my buddy Terry. The action sequences were so expansive and breathtaking, with Tobey swinging through the air. It just floored me!”

Andrew’s co-star, Emma Stone, on wanting to make the film relatable: “When I’m watching movies like this, if I don’t find something I can relate to story-wise and character-wise, it’s just a bunch of noise. You feel like a 4-year-old watching fireworks. With [director Marc Webb], you just know that the film will be grounded in reality.”

    Tobey is and always will be spiderman.
    He was the best spiderman there ever was because he had the mixture of good looks and geekiness whilst Andrew here looks pure geek.
    That was not Peter Parker.
    Peter Park had both which Tobey Maguire obviously had .
    For any girl to realistically find him attractive, he had to have some good looks, not model like, but attractive enough to date…andrew has none of that, he looks like a skinny nerd.
    He’s just not believable as Spiderman.

    He is a 100times better actor than Tobey. and that is what matters!

    Looks like a good pic. Maybe it will make Jesse Eisenberg and Garrett Hedlund fight over Andrew.

    A Says:

    @sunbears1: Spiderman is not supposed to be skinny.
    He has to have muscles to be able to swing from one building to another.
    Tobey Maguire looked like a more realistic Spiderman AND Peter Parker.

    Hanne Says:

    @A: Er, just because he looked the part (which he didn’t, anyway) doesn’t mean he was good. God, Tobey Maguire is so horrible and only got a part in The Great Gatsby because he is banging DiCaprio.

    skinny spidreman… not my cup of tea…..

    Tatiana Says:

    @ Hanne – LOL!! So true!!

    Why are they remaking this movie so soon? What is supposed to be the difference?

    Anyway, I think this guy makes a better Peter Parker, because in the comic books Peter was nerdy but he was HOT under those glasses. In my opinion, Tobey Maguire is simply not sexy.

    I also like Emma Stone as Mary Jane better than Kirsten Dunst too. Neither actress is the sex-kitten Mary Jane was, but Emma is definitely a huge step up. The nickname “Tiger” didn’t even sound right coming out of Kirsten’s mouth, which is probably why they only had her call Tobey that just once; whereas in the comic books, Mary Jane called Peter Parker that all the time…

    I love Spider-Man though. I enjoyed the last series, so I hope I enjoy this one too!

    @A: What do you mean? Andrew is gorgeous. He’s not photogenic, but in moving pictures, he’s beautiful.

    I have never, ever found Tobey attractive and I felt his Peter was rather insipid. Andrew has range. He can do nerdy, edgy, and funny, and he can comfortably mix them into one character.

    Rubella Says:

    @A: Have you seen Spidey when he was young and starting out? He was thin. He’s NOT meant to be muscled. He’s meant to have definition, yes, but he’s still supposed to be thin and spider-like, relying on his brains rather than braun.

    I was dead set against the spider man remake and didn’t like Andrew garfield attractive at all but I have to admit he looks sexy in the suit

    Um honeybunch, Gwen Stacey finds Peter Parker attractive because Emma Stone finds Andrew very attractive, they’ve been together for the last few months. See not everyone goes for greasy oiled up thick-necked guidos like you.

    Why buy a pirate copy when you can get the real thing? It’s not like it’s still out at the cinema.
