It is hard to believe that it has been 10 years since the first Spider-Man movie came to theaters. Back then Tobey Maguire played Peter Parker and did an amazing job showing off the heroic and nerdy side of this character with two identities. The Spider-Man trilogy in which he starred actually grossed about $2.5 billion worldwide, but it’s a new decade and this comic franchise is being rebooted with a new director and cast. The epic role has been given to British actor Andrew Garfield best known from the 2010 movie The Social Network.
Tobey Maguire was able to catch up with Garfield and interview him about his experiences filming The Amazing Spider-Man.
Maguire seemed super excited about the reboot of the franchise. “I was certainly curious as to who was going to play Peter Parker,” he told Garfield during a conversation between the actors published in VMan Magazine. ”When I heard it was you, I was literally like, ‘F***ing perfect!’”
Andrew Garfield was very flattered and almost at a loss for words when being complemented by the original Spidey, since he was a big fan of the movies when he was young. The role of Spider-Man was peacefully and happily passed down to a new generation!
The Amazing Spider-Man is set to be released on July 3, 2012.Tags: andrew garfield, Spider-Man, The Amazing Spider-Man, tobey maguire
