Andrew Garfield is in full Spider-Man mode for this week's cover of Entertainment Weekly. The movie doesn't hit cinemas until July next year, but the actor is getting set to start promoting The Amazing <nobrand>Spider-Man</nobrand>, starting with a panel at Comic-Con next week. In the issue, Garfield opens up about about putting his own spin on Spidey, while we get to see the first official stills from the movie featuring Garfield and his onscreen love interest, Emma Stone. Here are highlights:
- Andrew on relating to Peter Parker: "I always felt stronger inside than I looked on the outside, which got me into trouble. I related to Peter Parker so much because I felt like someone else inside. I loved the comic books and the animated TV series, and I even dressed up as Spider-Man as a kid. My brother was Superman."
- Andrew on watching Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man: "That rekindled everything. I bought a pirated copy on Portobello Road and watched it over and over with my buddy Terry. The action sequences were so expansive and breathtaking, with Tobey swinging through the air. It just floored me!"
- Andrew on filling Maguire's shoes: "Tobey did an amazing job. This isn’t a replacement. I want to be clear about that. It’s another chapter."
