Andrew Garfield stars in the new reboot ‘The Amazing Spiderman’ but can he deliver a performance that will be welcomed by fans of the comics?
Tobey Maguire leaves a legacy of 3 smash hit movies behind him and a worldwide fan base. Replacing him was always going to be difficult, and hitting the re-boot switch, is also never easy for production, no matter how good your script is. Maguire’s character, we could say, was a nerdy, quiet type, who was introverted but wanted to reach out and discover true love. Spider-Man for Maguire was a two-faced character struggling to find self-meaning with his extraordinary powers, his love for Mary Jane and huge responsibilities.
How will Andrew Garfield approach Spider-Man, and will he have a darker side to his resolve, a bit like Batman when he goes over the top? Somehow I don’t think we will see a Christian Bale tirade incorporated into Garfield’s character, but I am looking forward to his adaptation of the comic book hero.
