Andrew Garfield On Peter Parker's Development In THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2
News - some big, some not so much - is starting to filter through for Marc Webb's sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man now. We have a May 2, 2014 release date, we know roughly when it will shoot, we have our Mary Jane in Shailene Woodley and (most likely) our Electro in Jamie Foxx, plus we hear we are in for a redesigned Spidey suit too - something Andrew Garfield jokingly gives a reason for: "The suit is undergoing a redesign because I couldn't urinate in it last time. So I'm less nervous 'cause that's gonna be nice.". But the British actor also lets us in on his plans for where he'll be taking Peter Parker psychologically, and the themes he will hope to delve into now that the initial pressure of delivering the goods with the first movie is off..
While chatting with UK E Online, Garfield jokes about the reasons for the costume redesign, and also reveals which themes he wants to explore with the character this time around. It seems the Mommy and Daddy issues are only going to get worse..
"I feel really excited. I feel like we got over a hump with our first one. We had to reinstate the character, and we had to reinvigorate an audience to the character. And I hope to bring more of this theme—the theme of the orphan. I wanna keep exploring that theme of being fatherless, being motherless, searching for purpose and finding a purpose within himself, being a self-made man, I guess."
Garfield goes on to reiterate his feelings of responsibility while playing Spider-Man, but "politely declines to comment" on the Jamie Foxx/Electro casting unfortunately. Anyway, to read the article in full click on the link below.
