Andrew Garfield dropped some news on the filming schedule and his hopes for Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in an interview with Ellen. Here are some of the highlights along with the actual interview.
First up, it was announced that filming would begin this February.
As to where he’d like to see his character go, here’s what Andrew Garfield had to say:
“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.”
On how seriously he takes playing the role of such an iconic hero:
“It is a responsibility to play that role, and I don’t take it lightly. I think there’s so much to explore with that mythology and within the tension between living a double life, struggling with being good, struggling with choosing good behavior over bad behavior, with the pressures of a city on your shoulders.”
Additionally, there has also been some talk recently of changes to the costume:
– Bigger Eyes
– “Gnarly Web Shooters”
– Also, according to Garfield, “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.”
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set for a May 2, 2014 release.
