Here’s Your New Spider-Man

Andrew Garfield-DGG-017299 Sony has finally confirmed that Andrew Garfield has been selected to play Peter Parker in the upcoming Spider-Man film that will be in 3D. The film will begin shooting this December under director Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer).

Director Webb was quoted saying, “Though his name may be new to many, those who know this young actor’s work understand his extraordinary talents. He has a rare combination of intelligence, wit, and humanity. Mark my words, you will love Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker.”

Garfield’s most recent work includes David Fincher’s upcoming film The Social Network, looking at the invention of Facebook.

Personally, I never thought Tobey Maguire was a good choice for Spider-Man and I am glad that Hollywood got too involved with the third installment, which basically killed the franchise as a whole. I don’t really see the need for this remake, but nonetheless, Marc Webb has some obvious talent. We’ll see how it turns out.
