ok but does anyone else feel really bad for andrew garfield? it was literally his dream to play spiderman since he was a child and it’s not his fault they remade it too soon and sony did a shitty job. he was so excited to be in this movie that he showed up to comic con in a regular spiderman costume. and now he’s probably getting recast and he’s probably really upset about that, no matter how much you think the tasm movies were unnecessary or not-so-great.
get to know me meme | 10/10 favourite movies » The Amazing Spiderman ↳ "What makes life valuable is that it doesn’t last forever. What makes it precious is that it ends. I know that now more than ever. And I say it today of all days, to remind us that time is luck. So don’t waste it living someone else’s life, fight for what matters to you, no matter what. Because even if you fall short, what better way is there to live?“
What do you remember about your first Comic-Con, when you came out of the audience wearing the Spider-Man costume and read that note you’d written? I remember it vividly. It was one of my favorite moments of my creative life, in terms of finding a purpose in my life and knowing that I was in the right place and the right time and that I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. Where the idea came from is that I wanted to mark it for myself: I didn’t want to do just a panel, I didn’t want it to be, “Here’s the actors talking about the film,” because that creates a separation and a literal status level, because the actors are on a higher level on the stage than the people are in the audience, and I’m not comfortable with that. It’s okay when you see a play because it’s elevated reality or whatever, but to have the Comic-Con audience look up at me … that simple action, I wasn’t comfortable with. I wanted to be in the crowd, that was it. That’s where I belong, because I’m a fan. It also came out of being very anxious about saying hello and having to say, “Hey, guys, I hope you don’t mind that I’m English.“
[Spiderman] represents the everyman, but he represents the underdog and those marginalized who come up against great prejudice which I, as a middle-class straight, white man, don’t really understand so much. And when Stan Lee first wrote and created this character, the outcast was the computer nerd, was the science nerd, was the guy that couldn’t get the girl. Those guys now run the world. So how much of an outcast is that version of Peter Parker anymore? That’s my question.
