If you're a fan of Andrew Garfield's long hair, we've got some bad news. The actor says he's "over it" and is ready to chop it all off. "I'm very excited to," Garfield told me yesterday while promoting his upcoming drama 99 Homes (in theaters Sept. 25). He said having his locks so long has been a "hassle" but he had to grow it out for his work as one of two 17th century Jesuit priests who travel to Japan to find their mentor in the Martin Scorsese-directed Silence. "I had to kind of get lost in the wilderness [in Silence] so no barber shops in the wilderness in the 1600s in Japan," Garfield cracked. "I didn't find one »

Remember when Andrew Garfield was unveiled as Spider-Man at Comic-Con?
You do, because it was glorious. A full year before Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man was released, Garfield took ownership of the role with a heartfelt, impassioned speech about what Spidey had meant to him growing up. His passion was genuine, which makes his recent reflections to Zaki's Corner all the sadder.
19 actors who threw their own movies under the bus
"To give you the vulnerable answer, I thought I was going to be Spider-Man, you know? I went into it going... ego shit came in. It's like, 'Okay, here it is. I'm f**king Spider-Man. I f**king made it'," Garfield admitted. "I didn't actually make it. I was never Spider-Man.
"I was the actor that I am, the person that I am. Struggling with trying to match up with something that I'd elevated so high in my mind. »
In retrospect, the Amazing Spider-Man turned out to be a failed experiment. It turned out that people weren.t really interested in seeing a rebooted version of the wall-crawler so soon after Sam Raimi.s trilogy, and to make matters worse the two movies are mediocre at best. It turns out that this thinking is not at all lost on star Andrew Garfield, who has pin-pointed the reason for why the films were ultimately disappointing: they tried to appeal to absolutely everybody. The actor has been talking about the Amazing Spider-Man movies a lot recently (thanks to the fact that he is on the press tour for his new movie 99 Homes), and it was while talking with The Playlist that the actor revealed his thoughts on why his Spidey adventures didn.t work out as well as we all hoped. Speaking to the idea of trying to please everyone, Garfield »

"I was never Spider-Man." So says Andrew Garfield. After Sam Raimi directed Tobey Maguire in his trilogy of films, The Amazing Spider-Man and its sequel were not as well received by the public. Whether or not you believe Garfield was a poor choice for the character, the actor spoke out about his time in the role and thinks he failed in many ways. Garfield reflected on his portrayal during a roundtable interview for 99 Homes, which also stars Michael Shannon and Laura Dern. According to Zaki.s Corner with Zaki Hasan, Garfield is pulling a Pierce Brosnan. Much as the former 007 thought himself ill-equipped to handle James Bond, Garfield tried to explain why he failed in certain capacities. He said, I thought I was going to be Spider-Man, you know? I went into it going ... ego sh*t came in. It's like, 'Okay, here it is. I'm f**king Spider-Man. I f**king made »
With Spider-Man now firmly behind him, and his new indie film "99 Homes" to promote, actor Andrew Garfield has spoken more openly about his run as Peter Parker in "The Amazing Spider-Man" movies and his overall dissatisfaction with making such a large scale film that tries to be so wide appealing.
Though Garfield won't go into details about the behind the scenes issues on both films, he tells The Playlist that the pressure and the way the franchise plays it safe ultimately turned it into a not fun experience:
"The pressure to get it right, to please everyone… it's not going to happen...You end up pleasing no one, or everyone just a little bit. Like, 'Eh, that was good.' [The films are] mass-marketed, like 'We want 50-year-old white men to love it, gay teenagers to love it, bigot homophobes in Middle America to love it, 11-year-old girls to love it.' That's canning Coke. »

Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are going strong. The private pair were photographed on a lunch date in L.A. Sunday, more than two months after they were last seen at a grocery store in Santa Monica, Calif. Garfield, 32, and Stone, 26, met on the set of Sony Pictures' The Amazing Spider-Man, in which they played love interests Peter Parker and Gwen Stacey, respectively. The 2012 film earned $757.9 million on a reported $230 million budget. Capitalizing on its success, a sequel, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, was released in 2014 and earned $709 million on a reported $255 million budget. Though it was the eighth highest-grossing film of the year, it was the lowest-grossing film of the five-film franchise. While »
A few days ago we brought you some comments from Andrew Garfield about what Sony had in store for The Amazing Spider-Man 3 before the studio’s decision to reboot the series with Marvel Studios, and now Garfield has been speaking to Zaki’s Corner about his time as the wall-crawler, and what he might have learned from his time as Spider-Man.
“Well, nothing, because I was never Spider-Man. Because Spider-Man’s a fictional character. He’s not real. [laughs] You know what’s funny, to give you the vulnerable answer, I thought I was going to be Spider-Man, you know? I went into it going…ego shit came in. It’s like, “Okay, here it is. I’m fucking Spider-Man. I fucking made it.” All that shit. [laughs] I didn’t actually make it. I was never Spider-Man.

Andrew Garfield has opened up about what it was like to make the two Amazing Spider-Man films with Sony.
The 32-year-old British actor was talking to The Playlist when he compared making both films to "canning coke".
"The pressure to get it right, to please everyone... it's not going to happen," he mused.
"You end up pleasing no-one, or everyone just a little bit. Like, 'Eh, that was good'.
"[The films are] mass-marketed, like, 'We want 50-year-old white men to love it, gay teenagers to love it, bigot homophobes in Middle America to love it, 11-year-old girls to love it'. That's canning coke."
Garfield was promoting his latest film, the indie drama 99 Homes from Ramin Bahrani - the exact opposite of Sony's superhero monolith.
Andrew Garfield was keen to see Spider-Man be part of Marvel's cinematic universe - and had been arguing the case for some time...
You more than likely know the story so far. Following the commercial disappointment of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 - which didn't make, basically, what Sony wanted it to make - a new screen future for Spider-Man was laid out. Sony and Marvel would work together on new Spider-Man films, the character would join the Marvel cinematic universe in Captain America: Civil War, and the role would be recast.
Garfield has been promoting his new film, 99 Homes, and has been chatting to Uproxx about it. »
Despite being careful not to talk too much about the behind the scenes issues which plagued both of The Amazing Spider-Man movies, Andrew Garfield continues to reflect on his experience working on those movies, and it really doesn't sound good. In a recent interview with The Playlist to discuss 99 Homes, the British actor discussed the challenges which come with making a movie studio bosses want to ensure has mass appeal. "The pressure to get it right, to please everyone… it's not going to happen...You end up pleasing no one, or everyone just a little bit. Like, ‘Eh, that was good.’ [The films are] mass-marketed, like ‘We want 50-year-old white men to love it, gay teenagers to love it, bigot homophobes in Middle America to love it, 11-year-old girls to love it.’ That's canning Coke." That a very honest and damning way to talk about the movies, and Garfield went on to »
I am part of a select group of comic-book movie fans. I liked Marc Webb’s two Spider-Man movies (gasp!), and was interested in finding out where the storyline was heading. I thought Chris Cooper was primed to create an iconic Norman Osborn, and I thought the OsCorp storyline would have fed beautifully into Kraven the Hunter as a villain in The Amazing Spider-Man 3. Alas, it’s not to be, but Andrew Garfield hinted at some of their process in a recent interview, hinting at what might have been. Garfield is busy promoting his upcoming drama 99 Homes, but of course has to address a number of Spider-Man questions with the press. (That’s what happens when you used to be Peter Parker, if even for a little while.) When asked by Uproxx about the doomed The Amazing Spider-Man 3, Garfield explained that Peter’s emotional state following »
Marvel has wasted no time in looking after Spider-Man. Lead actor and director are locked down (well after the release date announcement), and Kevin Feige and co. are more than keen to show audiences their vision of Spidey after Sony's not so well received 'The Amazing Spider-Man' films. But as with the previous reboot, that leaves a creative team reeling after a half-decade or more of effort, and recently we learned the inner workings of that shift from one of the films’ key players. Talking to the Playlist recently in Los Angeles while promoting Ramin Bahrani’s new film, “99 Homes” —his excellent first post-Spider-Man role since 2010’s “The Social Network”— actor Andrew Garfield spoke on his intense time in the comic book movie realm.

Premiering a year ago at the Venice Film Festival, Ramin Bahrani's ("Man Push Cart," "Goodbye Solo") latest "99 Homes" has taken a little while to arrive in cinemas. But it's finally on the way, and a powerful new clip is here for the drama set against the backdrop of the worldwide economic crisis and foreclosure fallout of the past seven years.

Andrew Garfield recently said he was pushing for Spider-Man to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe before his time playing the web-slinger came to an end, and the actor opened up quite a bit about his Spidey experience during a conversation with Zaki's Corner. Garfield was asked what did he learn from being Spider-Man. His response? Well, nothing, because I was never Spider-Man. Because... Read More »

Promoting his new movie 99 Homes, Andrew Garfield has inevitably been asked a lot about the time he spent playing Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man franchise (he recently revealed whether or not Marvel Studios asked him to reprise the role). In this latest interview, the British actor was quizzed about what he learned from being Spider-Man, and his response is very telling, especially when he touches on what went wrong with them. You can tell he's being careful with what he says - he likely doesn't want his career going the same way as Josh Trank's - but it doesn't sound as if Garfield was any happier with how The Amazing Spider-Man 2 turned out than fans! Well, nothing, because I was never Spider-Man. Because Spider-Man's a fictional character. He's not real. [laughs] You know what's funny, to give you the vulnerable answer, I thought I was going to be Spider-Man, »
In May of next year, audiences around the globe will be introduced to a brand new version of Spider-Man, as Tom Holland takes on the part in both Captain America: Civil War and the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe. This means that Andrew Garfield's tenure playing the webslinging Peter Parker is over - but what you may not know is that he had been fighting for some kind of Marvel Studios team-up long before an actual deal was made. Garfield is currently making the press rounds in promotion of his new movie 99 Homes, and it was while chatting with Uproxx that he revealed his attempts to get Sony and Marvel Studios to pair up on some kind of deal. Asked if he would just be able to enjoy Spider-Man movies while not being a part of them, the Social Network star explained, Exactly, yeah. And I.ve been petitioning to »
With Marvel and Sony Pictures having joined forces for the next incarnation of the "Spider-Man" franchise with Tom Holland in the lead role, one person who has of late been asked about the character's on screen future has been the previous Peter Parker himself actor Andrew Garfield.
In a new interview for UpRoxx, Garfield was asked if Marvel ever approached him about putting on the suit one more time:
"No. To be honest [pauses], all the ins and outs of what happened is a more tender conversation that maybe I don't want to talk about in public in a press situation. But all I can say is that I'm stoked to go and watch a Marvel film of Spider-Man. I'm really, really grateful for the whole ride of it. And I'm really excited for the next one."
Garfield also revealed that he had been trying to get Sony to 'hook up' »
