Andrew Garfield Says Tom Holland Is the Perfect Spider-Man, “I Get to Be a Fan Again”

Actor Andrew Garfield, who played superhero Spider-Man in the 2012 film ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ and its 2014 sequel said that audiences will never get tired of the character, who is currently being played by Tom Holland. He added that everyone can project themselves into the suit, and that’s why he’s probably the most beloved superhero universally.

Garfield told SiriusXM: “It’s like ‘Hamlet’ like you can never get enough ‘Hamlets’ or ‘Macbeths’… I will vouch for the character for a second in the sense that it’s the only superhero where he’s covered head to toe.

“You don’t see skin colour, you don’t see sexual orientation, you don’t see any of those things.”

The star believes that the fact that “everyone” has the ability to imagine themselves as the superhero is key to the enduring popularity of the character, who first appeared in Marvel Comics in 1962.

He said: “Everyone can project themselves into the suit, and I think that’s why he’s probably the most beloved superhero universally, throughout every culture, throughout every race. Yeah, I think so. I really do think so.

“And there’s also (an) ordinariness to Peter Parker that everyone can project themselves into as well.”

Actor Tom Holland succeeded Garfield as Peter Parker or Spider-Man and is set to play the role once again in ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home.’

Speaking on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ about the upcoming film, he said: “I think that Tom Holland is just the perfect Peter Parker and Spider-Man, so I’m just super stoked.

“And I get to just like, be a fan again, which is my preferred position – to be able to sit in the audience and kind of go, ‘Yeah, you screwed up mate, you didn’t do it as well as you could have done, eh?’ I get to be that guy that’s just like, ‘Yeah, I don’t really love the suit…’ I get to be that person which is so much fun.”

Meanwhile, Andrew Garfield may appear in the upcoming movie even though there is no official confirmation about it. Fans think that this might be a hint towards a multiverse being created given we already witness Dr. Strange using the time stone to help Peter in the trailer.

Tom Holland’s Spider-Man: No Way Home is scheduled to release on December 17, 2021.
