Andrew Garfield is set to appear on the big screen later this year as Peter Parker aka Spider-Man, in the Marc Webb reboot The Amazing Spider-Man. Andrew has been discussing his feelings about the Spider-Man costume, claiming that it feels quite liberating.
Garfield explained, “It was a mixed moment. I have to say, it was incredibly overwhelming, of course, but I didn't quite identify with it because I — you know, one amazing thing about Spider-Man is [he's] the only superhero where you can't see any skin colour.”
He added, “I think that's why he's so, kind of, universally relatable and beloved, whereas Batman you can see it's a white guy under the thing and whatever. I didn't feel like me. There's something kind of liberating about that.”
Andrew continued, “I think that's pretty much how Peter Parker feels, as well. He's like, 'Oh, I'm not me anymore. I can be whatever I need to be or whatever I want to be.' And that creates mischief, that creates...there's a lot to talk about with that, as well. It was a fun role to play.”
The Amazing Spider-Man is set to be released on July 3.
