Andrew Garfield’s “Spider-Man” Update

The Guardian recently spoke with Spider-Man 2.0 starAndrew Garfield during the production’s Christmas break. Here’s what he had to say about the adventure so far:

We started shooting two weeks ago and then we have Christmas off. Then we’re back into it for, gosh, I’m sure a fair bit of time. With this, it feels like I’m going to have to hibernate into this character for at least four or five months.”

When asked his impressions about the Spider-Man suit, he remarked that he felt like a kid again:

I feel like a kid in my pajamas. I can only say how it feels and it feels pretty special. It feels like a dream realized and a fantasy realized. Again, I don’t take it lightly and I feel very, very lucky that I get to wear spandex for the next couple of months.”

The actor also spoke about the physical balance of the role, whereas Spider-Man is a strong superhero but Peter Parker is just a boy:

“I think Spider-Man needs strength, but Peter Parker is still a teenager, you know? That’s a very tender balance to figure out. It’s very specific what we’re trying to achieve in terms of body type and the feeling of that. Rest assured, there’s a lot of people helping me with that because I have no discipline in that respect. My father’s a swimming coach and I kind of rebelled against that very early on. Any kind form of physical discipline has to be cracked with a pretty firm whip.”
