Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone And Marc Webb Talk THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN
Marc Webb discusses what made Andrew Garfield the perfect choice to play a teenage Spider-Man in the 2012 reboot and Emma Stone talks about Gwen's "irresponsible" relationship with Peter.
In a few more brief excerpts from the latest issue of Empire Magazine, Marc Webb and stars Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker) and Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy) have talked more about The Amazing Spider-Man. The director started off by discussing what exactly made the British actor the perfect choice to bring the iconic Marvel character to the big screen as a teenager, despite being 28 years of age. "In his screentest, he killed it. He moved like an awkward kid, his elbows were flying all over the place, but he also had an ability to go deep in a way that very few actors can do. Fuck, he's good."
"Marc's a believer in love," added Stone. And we were lucky to be able to express the authenticity of two people in love. Getting involved with Peter is the first irresponsible thing she's ever done." Garfield meanwhile had this to say about the role and why it was interesting for him to take on a teenage superhero: "I've been thinking about the responsibility of it since I read the comics, and what the character's always meant to me. He's a reassuring character, and a character who I think is important, for whatever reason, for skinny boys around the world. I think it's compelling he's a teenage superhero. It's an interesting dilemma to be going through. That's a very cool and specific struggle to try to capture."
