Andrew Garfield opens up about Spider-Man


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Andrew Garfield’s Christmas arrived early this year. He finally got to try on Spider-Man’s long underwear and shoot a few scenes as Marvel’s top crime fighter for Marc Webb’s anticipated franchise reboot.

“I feel like a kid in my pajamas. I can only say how it feels and it feels pretty special. It feels like a dream realized and a fantasy realized,” Garfield told The Guardian during an exclusive interview (courtesy of ComingSoon).

“Again, I don’t take it lightly and I feel incredibly lucky that I get to wear spandex for the next couple of months,” Garfield said.

They production began filming two weeks ago but recently took off for a Christmas break. Garfield said he expects to inhabit the character for several months once they return from holiday, though he relishes every moment.

He also confirmed that he’ll be playing a younger version of the famed character.

“I think Spider-Man needs strength, but Peter Parker is still a teenager, you know? That’s a very tender balance to figure out. It’s very specific what we’re trying to achieve in terms of body type and the feeling of that,” Garfield said.

“Rest assured, there’s a lot of people helping me with that because I have no discipline in that respect. My father’s a swimming coach and I kind of rebelled against that very early on. Any kind of exercise routine has to be cracked with a pretty firm whip.”

“Spider-Man” will be in theaters July 2012.
