Andrew Garfield Named the New Spider-Man

by at . Comments

Sony Pictures has found someone to follow in the webbed footsteps of Tobey Maguire.

Little-known actor Andrew Garfield has won the coveted role, as the franchise is looking for a reboot. It will take us back to a time long before Peter Parker gained his special abilities.

A-Gar

Garfield was born in Los Angeles, but raised in England. He appeared in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and will co-star with Justin Timberlake in the upcoming Facebook-based film Social Network. He received a BAFTA in 2008 for his performance in Boy A.

Said director Marc Webb:

“Though his name may be new to many, those who know this young actor’s work understand his extraordinary talents. He has a rare combination of intelligence, wit, and humanity.”

What do you think? Can you picture Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man?

Why do they need to re-boot the Spider Man series? And...why are they wasting time with a storyline before Peter Parker becomes Spider Man? What is the point in that?
