Andrew Garfield talks about Landing the Role of SPIDER-MAN

It's been two months since it was announced that Andrew Garfield would take on the role of Peter Parker in Marc Webb's new 3D Spider-Man reboot. Garfield is still an up and coming actor, and before we see him take on the role of Spider-Man, we see him in Mark Romanek's new film Never Let Me go, as well as David Fincher's The Social Network.

Up until today Garfield hasn't really talked publicly about getting cast in the new Spider-Man film, but now that he has, it's obvious he's extremely excited about it! You can't help but love his enthusiasm and excitement to be in this movie. Here's what he recently told THR:

I have been waiting for this phone call for 24 years, for someone to call me up and say, "Hey, we want you to pretend to be a character that you’ve always wanted to be all your life, and we’re going to do it with cool cameras and cool effects and you’re going to feel like you’re swinging through New York City. Do you want to do that?" [laughs] “Let me just consult with my seven-year old self and see what he thinks...” So my seven-year-old self started screaming in my soul and saying, This is what we’ve been waiting for. Like every young boy who feels stronger on the inside than they look on the outside, any skinny boy basically who wishes their muscles matched their sense of injustice, God, it’s just the stuff that dreams are made of, for sure. It’s a true f*cking honor to be part of this symbol that I actually think is a very important symbol and it’s meant a great deal to me, and it continues to mean something to people. So yeah, I feel like I’ve been preparing for it for a while. Ever since Halloween when I was four years old and I wore my first Spider-Man costume.

He also talks about how he's knows he'll have to go through some physical training, but he hasn't really started anything yet. Make sure to head on over to THR to read the full interview.

I've gotta be honest... I'm excited for this new Spider-Man reboot. It's hard not to be for the fact that everyone involved so far is extremely talented, and I think they're going to bring us a unique and fun vision of one of our favorite superheroes.

What do you all think about it?
