Andrew Garfield Shares His Thoughts About Not Being Able to Save ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ Franchise
He was not that bad as the Web slinger, and certainly did not deserve the way his web slinger franchise ended. But that’s just how Hollywood works, one poor performance and the entire franchise gets dismantled. In a recent interview, Andrew Garfield opened up about how he felt about “The Amazing Spider-Man” franchise.
According to Screen Rant, poor performance of “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” led Sony to cancel their plans of bringing another movie in the franchise and passing it forward to the Marvel Cinematic Universe so that the character could get rebooted there. Marvel on their part wanted to focus on a teenage Spider-Man hence cast Tom Holland for the part, who will be making his debut in the upcoming “Captain America: Civil War.”
While promoting his new movie, Andrew Garfield spoke about the franchise and stated that he never was Spider-Man because Spider-Man is a fictional character, but he was the actor that he is today, the person that he is today. He also mentioned that he struggled to match with something he had elevated at such a height in his mind and that his elevation was beyond what he could attain and achieve. The great thing, according to him, was that his character Peter Parker was something similar as nothing was ever enough for him. Perhaps the most important thing that Andrew mentioned was despite the fact that he did not sleep, he could not rescue those films.
Comicbookmovie.com reported that the actor’s response was very touching when one of their interviewers mentioned to the actor that he showed the actor’s appearance at the Comic Con 2011 to his students to show them how to pay tribute. The actor went on to mentioning that the appearance was the highlight of the whole experience for him. He also credited the producers who believed him when he said that the idea was a good one and which did eventually work. Andrew Garfield will be seen in the upcoming “99 Homes” with Michael Shannon.
