Andrew Garfield On His Peter Parker Possibly Passing On The SPIDER-MAN Mantle To Miles Morales

Andrew Garfield has said in the past that he'd like to see an actor of a different race play Spider-Man in the near future, and he talks here about the possibility of his Peter Parker passing on the mantle of Spider-Man to a new actor - and character in the form of Miles Morales - in the near future...


"I have given that thought," Andrew Garfield told Comic Book Resources when they asked him for his thoughts on the possibility of an Ultimate Spider-Man movie starring Miles Morales. In that universe, Peter Parker's death led to Miles taking over the mantle and that's something which the actor think could work in helping this franchise transition into the next. "Miles Morales was a huge moment in this character's comic book life. And I do believe that we can do that. It's something I'm really interested in figuring out; an eloquent way of coexisting, or passing on the torch. I don't have an answer, but I think it's actually a really important move. I think it's a really beautiful and important move." That would arguably work really well, and would avoid yet another reboot a few years from now which would like retell Spider-Man's origin for a third time. As for whether he would be interested in sticking around long enough to play an older Peter Parker, the actor added: "I want it to feel like a circle. I want the two ends to join, somehow. I don't know what that means, yet. I don't know what that means in terms of the quantity of Spider-Man movies I do. But I know that I don't particularly want to be a 40-year-old Spider-Man. [Laughs] I do know that time is fleeting." What do you guys think?
