Andrew Garfield certainly has a lot to say about "Spider-Man"! While attending the Palm Springs International Film Awards, where he received a special honour for his role in Tick, Tick... BOOM!, Garfield told Entertainment Tonight why he thinks people are drawn towards the character.
Garfield says people relate to "Spider-Man's" "loneliness"
Garfield expressed his belief that the "isolation" that "Spider-Man" experiences is a key reason why the superhero resonates with people. He told Entertainment Tonight's Matt Cohen how it's the character's "loneliness" that makes him relatable, "as we are figuring out our giftedness, our ordinariness and how that meets our extraordinariness."
The actor first portrayed "Spider-Man" in 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man, then reprised his role in 2014 for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Fans who had hoped Garfield would play the superhero again were in for a treat when Spider Man: No Way Home released, as he teamed up with both Tobey Maguire and Tom Holland's versions of the character. Garfield said that as "a fan," he loved the idea of having them share the screen!
He also revealed that he and Maguire attended a screening of No Way Home while incognito, calling it "a really beautiful thing to share together." He also shared that along with Holland, they formed a "brotherhood" because of their experiences being "Spider-Man," and said he would be open to returning to the role!
