Andrew Garfield Was 'Heartbroken' By His 'Spider-Man' Movies

Andrew Garfield has revealed that he was disappointed by his Spider-Man movies and was left “heartbroken” when he felt the story had been compromised.

The 33-year-old actor played the webslinger in two films and he opened up about working on the films in a new Variety Actors on Actors interview with Amy Adams.

“I’m loath to judge that experience and paint it as a whole. But there were great things about it. I got to work with incredible actors and a really great director,” Andrew said. “There’s something about being that young in that kind of machinery that I think is really dangerous. I wasn’t a teenager, but I was still young enough to struggle with the value system, I suppose, of corporate America.”

“There’s something that happened with that experience for me where story and character were not actually top of the priority list, ultimately. And I found that really, really tricky,” he added. “I signed up to serve the story and to serve this incredible character I’d been dressing as since I was 3. And then it gets compromised, and it breaks my heart. I got heartbroken a little bit.”

Amy added her own insight from the Superman movies. “That’s the tricky thing with Lois Lane that I find. I love playing her, I love everyone I work with, but sometimes it’s tricky because I feel she’s in service of the story instead of the story serving a character. I’ve signed on to things for one reason, and they’ve turned into something else, and it’s always a little heartbreaking, because you have to let go of that ideal,” she said.

    He was the best Spiderman. Sony ruined the movies with the bad script. It worked out for the best. He wouldn’t have done Hacksaw Ridge or Silence if he was still Spidey. He’s a legend in the making. Best of luck to Andrew.
