Andrew Garfield Reflects On His Heartbreaking Experience Playing The Amazing Spider-man

3 December 2016 6:15 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Andrew Garfield landed the role of a lifetime when he signed on to play Peter Parker in July 2010, but unfortunately after a more-than-decent start in 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man, everything promising about the new series seemed to fall apart in the 2014 sequel, which despite financial success, sent the franchise into a nosedive and ultimately back into the hands of the illustrious Marvel Studios. The move, which has been welcomed a wide majority of fans, came at a steep price to Garfield as he was left out of the new agreement with the studios opting for a much younger Spidey - later revealed to be played by up-and-comer Tom Holland. While Garfield has since moved on to bigger and better things, including critically acclaimed dramatic turns in Ramin Bahrani's 99 Homes, Mel Gibson's Hacksaw Ridge, and based on early word-of-mouth, Martin Scorsese's Silence (a role which will likely garner »

Spider-Man: Homecoming Footage Details Reveal Stark Suit Upgrade

2 December 2016 12:05 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We are probably going to be seeing the first official trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming very soon, but some lucky fans in Brazil got a taste of what's to come. Sony held a panel at the Comic Con Experience 2016 in S&#227o Paulo, Brazil, where they showed a brief trailer for the movie. The footage, unfortunately, didn't make its way online, but a description of the footage has and what was revealed is very exciting for longtime Spider-Man fans.

Vice President and Executive Editor for Marvel's digital media team Ryan Penagos was in attendance at the panel and took to his Twitter account to give a good description of what was shown to the audience. According to his report, the footage shows Tom Holland as Spidey talking to Happy Hogan, played by Jon Favreau in the Iron Man series, in a Pov style. But the most exciting part has to do with a suit upgrade. »

Andrew Garfield Says He Would Take Emma Stone with Him to a Deserted Island: ‘I Love Emma’

2 December 2016 10:02 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Despite their breakup over a year ago, Andrew Garfield still “loves” Emma Stone.

In a roundtable discussion with several other actors for The Hollywood Reporter, Garfield, 33, answered the final question: “You’re on a desert island and can have one actor or actress with you. Who?”

Emma Stone,” Garfield said, answering first. “I love Emma. She’s all right. She can come.”

And while Garfield was thinking of Stone, the La La Land actress was most recently seen exchanging giggles with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show on Thursday. While there, Stone and Fallon played “Singing Whisper Challenge,” erupting into »

Andrew Garfield Says Missed Opportunities With Spider-Man Were "Absolutely Devastating"

1 December 2016 11:11 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

If you thought that Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man wasn't given the material he deserved in Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the one-time wall-crawler might agree with you.

During The Hollywood Reporter's Actor Roundtable, Garfield describes the experience of working on superhero movies as "brutal" and seems to be very aware of the potential squandered in Sony's last attempt at bringing the Marvel superhero to the big screen.

Referring to an earlier comment from Dev Patel, Garfield said, "I love what you just said, that you were looking at a stranger and feeling like »

Get A Glimpse Of The Spectacular Teaser Poster For Spider-Man: Homecoming

30 November 2016 6:20 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Both Spider-Man: Homecoming and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 look set to receive the spotlight at Brazil’s Ccxp this coming weekend, and now the teaser poster for the latter has seemingly found its way online.

As you can see below, it puts the spotlight on the iconic symbol which will adorn the chest of Tom Holland’s wall-crawler. If this is indeed Spider-Man: Homecoming‘s first poster, it’s fairly simple, but it does make a bold statement that there’s a new Peter Parker in town following The Amazing Spider-Man movies.

The Brazilian Twitter account which shared this photo also claims that the first trailer for Jon Watts’ upcoming reboot will be shown at the event on Friday, and while past reports have pointed to it being attached to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story next month, this may very well be a sign that it’ll »

Andrew Garfield On Canned Amazing Spider-Man Series: “Story And Character Were Not Top Of The Priority List”

30 November 2016 3:03 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As the movie industry braces for the third incarnation of Peter Parker ahead of Spider-Man: Homecoming, spare a thought for Andrew Garfield and Sony’s canned Amazing Spider-Man series.

During an “Actors on Actors” segment over at Variety, Garfield turned in a candid assessment of the blockbuster duo, claiming that, in his experience, “story and character were actually not top of the priority list.” If there’s one common criticism that rings true about Sony and Marc Webb’s budding franchise – particularly The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – it’s that the studio was so obsessed with building an interwoven cinematic universe that all of the half-baked storylines, throwaway villains and Sinister Six teases came at the expense of the actual story.

That’s something that Andrew Garfield touched base on during Variety’s segment, referencing how the “corporate” nature of Sony’s business model ultimately stifled the series before it could get going in earnest. »

Playing Spider-Man left Andrew Garfield a little bit “heartbroken”

30 November 2016 12:52 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

For the past couple of years, around awards season (whether it be for the Oscars or Emmys), Variety has hosted Actors on Actors, a series where two performers sit down together and ask each other questions about their careers and performances. Recently, Andrew Garfield and Amy Adams, who are both in contention for an Oscar nomination this year for Hacksaw Ridge / Silence and Arrival / Nocturnal Animals, respectively, took part in the interview and discussed a common connection in their careers: their roles in superhero movies. 

Garfield played Spider-Man in 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man and 2014’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, while Adams occupies the role of Lois Lane in the DC Extended Universe. Garfield, in particular, spoke about how his role as the web-crawler had an effect on him: “There’s something about being that young in that kind of machinery which I think is really dangerous. I was still young »

He will soon be seen in Martin Scorsese’s forthcoming epic Silence, and let’s face it, is doing rather well for himself, but Andrew Garfield has revealed in a Variety Q&A that was left ‘heartbroken’ from his turn in The Amazing Spider-Man and its sequel, and how it all ended up.

Garfield was speaking in an ‘Actors on Actors’ interview series and revealed all to Amy Adams.

“I’m loath to judge that experience and paint it as a whole. But there were great things about it. I got to work with incredible actors and a really great director,” he said

“I was very young for a man – I was 25, 26 – and I felt young in retrospect. I »

Andrew Garfield recalls “heartbreaking” experience making The Amazing Spider-Man movies

29 November 2016 3:39 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The Amazing Spider-Man was by no means a bad movie, but it didn’t exactly live up to expectations. “The Untold Story” we were promised seemingly ended up on the cutting room floor, while the much talked about Pov scenes ended up amounting to pretty much nothing. The sequel however was abysmal, and while it looked […]

Andrew Garfield Was “Heartbroken” By The Amazing Spider-man Series

29 November 2016 3:28 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Image via Sony

It ain’t easy being an actor in a big franchise. Sure, as audience members, we have a tendency to romanticize the glamor of it all. We see what comes out on screen, and there’s a certain magic to it that’s hard to shake. Unless you’ve had a chance to experience how the sausage actually gets made, it’s easy to assume that an actor’s career is mostly made up of those high points we see on film. We don’t see the hours of grueling work that goes behind the scenes, the copious amount of boredom that likely hits when waiting around on set, or the insecurity of never really knowing if your character (or the movie, for that matter) is going to work on screen.

It’s a difficult enough thing in a small movie, but when you’re just a »

Andrew Garfield Explains How “Compromised” ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ Left Him “Heartbroken”

29 November 2016 12:19 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With Marvel now teaming with Sony to bring Peter Parker to the big screen (again), the latter studio can start putting “The Amazing Spider-Man” fiasco in the rear view. What was supposed to launch an entire movie universe around the webslinger evaporated after two movies, both of which underwhelmed at the box office and were met with fanboy disappointment. It couldn’t have been easy for Andrew Garfield, who had the marquee role of his young career and who likely figured it would be a stepping stone to bigger and better things.

Andrew Garfield Was a Little ‘Heartbroken’ After Playing Spider-Man

29 November 2016 10:15 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Playing Spider-Man left Andrew Garfield “heartbroken, a little.”

In Variety’s “Actors on Actors” interview with Amy Adams, Garfield discussed the struggle he had coming to terms with big-budget movies.

“There’s something about being that young in that kind of machinery which I think is really dangerous,” Garfield said of his time on the two “The Amazing Spider-Man” films. “I was still young enough to struggle with the value system, I suppose, of corporate America really, it’s a corporate enterprise mostly.”

Garfield went on to say that his experience taught him that story and character are ultimately not always “top of the priority list.”

“I found that really, really tricky. I signed up to serve the story, and to serve this incredible character that I’ve been dressing as since I was three, and then it gets compromised and it breaks your heart,” he said. “I got heartbroken »

Spider-Man Strikes an Iconic Pose in New Homecoming Poster

28 November 2016 9:57 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Now that Doctor Strange has arrived, Marvel fans are looking forward to what the studio has coming next year. That includes a few big movies, but perhaps most importantly, Peter Parker will be making his solo movie debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe release Spider-Man: Homecoming. We are still waiting for a trailer, but now we have a new poster to feast our eyes on.

The new poster made its way onto Twitter via the Tom Holland Brazil account. This image for Spider-Man: Homecoming doesn't give us much new to look at, since it is pretty much the first logo that was released for the movie with a picture of Tom Holland as Spider-Man hanging out on the left side of it. Still, despite being simple, it is a good poster. According to the tweet, the poster debuted at a Marvel visual effects event that took place in Italy recently. »

Ah, this is a shame. Jim Mickle, who directed the impressive Cold In July, was set to start lensing his new movie, a mystery drama by the name of Godforsaken next week. But the film looks to have fallen apart with the last minute departure from it by Sylvester Stallone.

Turn out the first draft of Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home had a role for Eddie Murphy in it...

Here’s something you may not know: Eddie Murphy was once set to appear in a Star Trek movie, to the point where his part was written into the screenplay.

If all had gone to plan, he would have appeared in 1986’s Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, one of the most successful movies in the Trek series. It was penned by Steve Meerson and Peter Krikes, and in a new interview, Meerson has been recalling putting the script of the film – that was, of course, directed by Leonard Nimoy – together.
