How To Make The Amazing Spider-Man's Andrew Garfield Blush
The first big question that popped up after word of a new Spider-Man movie got out was "Do we really need another so soon?" After the studios answered that one for us, attention shifted to Andrew Garfield. Minus Peter Parkerís emo phase in 2007ís Spider-Man 3, Toby Maguire did a solid job. How could Garfield possibly achieve the same caliber and then manage to make the character somewhat his own?
Garfieldís Peter is still your loveable high school outcast who gets bitten by a radioactive spider, but this time around, heís got his eye on Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) and is far more invested in his mission to find out why his parents disappeared than anything. While plot differences do make The Amazing Spider-Man a fresher experience, the seamless transition from the Toby Maguire Spider-Man to the Andrew Garfield version is all thanks to Garfield. While promoting the movie in New York City, I let him know it.
High-flying stunts may not make this guy flinch, but sincere compliments sure do.
