Andrew Garfield isn’t concerned about the sheer number of “Spider-Man” movies.
The 38-year-old actor played the legendary superhero in the 2012 film “The Amazing Spider-Man” and its 2014 sequel and suggested that audiences never tire of the character, who is currently played by Tom Holland. .
Andrew told SiriusXM: “It’s like ‘Hamlet’, like you can never get enough ‘Hamlets’ or ‘Macbeth’ … I’ll vouch for the character for a second in the sense that that’s the only superhero where he’s covered from head to toe. You don’t see the color of the skin, you don’t see the sexual orientation, you don’t see any of those things. “
The “Eyes of Tammy Faye” star believes that the fact that “everyone” has the ability to imagine themselves as Spider-Man is the key to the enduring popularity of the character, who first appeared in Marvel Comics. in 1962.
Andrew said: “Anyone can project themselves into the costume, and I think that’s why he’s probably the most beloved superhero in the world, in all cultures, in all races. Yes, I do. think so. I really mean it. “

“And I come back to being a fan again, which is my favorite position – so I can sit in the audience and say, ‘Yeah, you fucked up buddy, you didn’t do it as well as you would. could do, eh?
“I become that guy who says to me, ‘Yeah, I don’t really like the costume …’ I become this person who is so fun.”
