“The Amazing Spider-Man” is just about to be released and Andrew Garfield has already confirmed that he is interested in reprising his role for the sequel.This could be a film that puts Garfield in the blockbuster category for the first time. It is already receiving some early positive reviews but this may be one of the most competitive years for Summer blockbusters. With the release of so many anticipated films and “The Amazing Spider-Man” being released in the same month as “The Dark Knight Rises,” there is a chance that the film may not reach the numbers the studio is expecting.
Andrew Garfield, who portrays Peter Parker in Marc Webb’s reboot of the superhero film franchise, tells THR, “If we do one, I hope I can do it — I hope they’d let me do it. I hope so.”
“That suit has always been a symbol of something for me,” Garfield says of Spider-Man’s famous skintight, saving-the-world costume. “Whenever I think about that suit, it makes me feel protected and warm and safe, like I’m free. It’s always been that way since I was three years old. And that relates to the ‘orphan feeling’ of feeling unprotected and unsafe. So putting on the suit, having any affiliation with the suit, is an honor. Because it’s such a symbol of wonderful hope and goodness.”
I love it when an actor/actress is passionate about an iconic role they are playing, it’s a sign that they will put their heart into the performance and please the fans. I have yet to see the film but I already prefer the look of Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker to Tobey Maguire. I think that I will also prefer his performance but I will make that judgment after screening the film next week.
