The Amazing Spider-Man actor Andrew Garfield, who plays Peter Parker aka Spider-Man in the forthcoming movie, has revealed how he felt the first time he wore the famous costume on set. Andrew admits that it was rather daunting at first but then the power of the suit took over.
Garfield explained to Perez Hilton, “Very self-conscious, because you're practically naked. You're just all out there! And that's a really dangerous, brave, scary place to be. But after that first flush you feel the power of it, the power of not being seen, the power of the mask.”
He added, “Peter [Parker] becomes witty when he's got that protective layer. It's like he's on a message board. He's got the anonymity of the internet within that suit and he can say whatever the hell he likes and he can get away with anything.”
Andrew continued, “He can f**k with people and there's no consequences because nobody knows who the hell he is. We all know how powerful and potentially dangerous that anonymity is.”
The Amazing Spider-Man, which also stars Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy and Rhys Ifans as The Lizard aka Dr. Curt Connors, is released on July 3.
