There have been many rumours about the tone that the new Spider-Man movie The Amazing Spider-Man would be taking, with many people claiming that director Marc Webb would be looking to make it darker, in the same vain as the latest Batman movies. However, Andrew Garfield, who plays Spider-Man aka Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man, has revealed that, that is not exactly the case.
Garfield explained, “We haven’t gone for gritty, we’ve gone for grounded. If we try and make Batman, we’ll fail. The new Batman is its own thing — and also in terms of tone, Spider-Man is nothing like that character.” He then went on to explain how Spider-Man, aka Peter Parker, has always had a comedic edge to him and how they have stuck with that in The Amazing Spider-Man.
Andrew added, “Spider-Man is witty, Spider-Man is a kid, Spider-Man wants to have fun, he’s a teenager and he needs to go through first love and piss around. "I don't give a frick about making money and all that, I care about the character being served, being treated with respect." Andrew Garfield stars alongside Emma Stone and Rhys Ifans in, the Marc Webb directed, The Amazing Spider-Man, which is set to be released on July 3.
