We Now Understand Why Andrew Garfield Was Replaced As Spider-Man

  • Published on Jul 21, 2019
  • Anyone who gets to play Spider-Man is living a dream come true. Unfortunately, for Andrew Garfield, that dream was brief. Why was his tenure as Peter Parker so short? The answer, as always, is complicated.
    The best characters often come from actors with a concrete vision, who can turn stories, experiences, and research into a coherent whole. Garfield believed in the power of this process as fervently as a 25-year-old rookie actor could. After the series' cancellation, he told The Guardian about the work he'd put in behind the scenes to do right by the character:
    “I thought, if I can infuse all this ancient knowledge and wisdom into [Spider-Man], it could be profoundly affecting for young people in the audience. That was always my intention and what I tried to do.”
    Unfortunately, the studio didn't agree. The cutting of character-centric scenes, the promotion of Garfield as a celebrity, and the ultimate reality of The Amazing Spider-Man as a blockbuster series made Garfield's high-brow ideas unsustainable. He has, at least, made piece with this rift, telling The Guardian in the same interview:
    "What I'll proudly say is that I didn't compromise who I was, I was only ever myself."

    Andrew's SpiderMan >>>
    The swinging & fighting scenes are still the best I've seen on a Spider Man film, it just sucks that things didn't go well for him because he was given a bad script. Amazing actor nonetheless.

    Why should we get nerdy and unsocial parker when we get the coolest parker who inspired us to becoming man, as skate boy, fuck boy, sometimes big mouth and even attend the graduation with thrasher shirt, short pant and kiss the girl infront of audience, damn really? Coolest parker i've ever seen

    Let’s hope he gets the role back for “The Amazing Spider-Man 3” since Spidey is out of the MCU

    I loved Andrew as Spiderman...for the first movie at least, the second one just felt rushed in a sense. Andrew won't beat Tobey, but hey, he still is kinda better than Tom Holland just saying

      DiiGiTaL FaCe it's because in the 2nd movie the studios interfere with the movie

    I hated Andrew at first because of my love for the original trilogy. But once I actually saw his movies, I accepted him as a fun variation of Peter.

    Wasnt that hard to understand. Dont have to watch a video to understand that sony was rebooting spiderman and sharing rights with disney since they wanted him in the MCU so they decided a reboot was the best option for their new idea for spiderman. Not like garfield liked the role anyways. He got so much hate for his role he started to hate it himself.
    I liked his spiderman but not his peter.

  • Isaiah Brown

    I thought Garfield was a good Spider-Man but not a good Peter Parker. Garfield's Spider-Man cracked jokes and was cool and not as emotional as Toby's. I grew up with both films so I know the difference

    Andrew Garfield in my opinion is the best Spider-Man to date. He closely resembles the comic book Spider Man the most compared to the others.

    Garfield... not cool. Too broody and emo for the part. The only thing I will give him on the movie was Gwen’s death. He nailed the reaction.

  • C H I I

    Hes a good actor with bad scripting, and his gwen death scene was amazing no argument

    But still The Amazing Spider-Man movies are still my favorite Spider-Man movies. They weren't the best but they come close to the original Stan Lee comics. Andrew did his best. He couldn't do it any better. Also Tobey's Spider-Man potrayal was good too.
    Man, I liked all of them. Can't they make a Spider-Verse where all 3 of them come together? :D

  • Ghost Wolfi

    The 'cool' thing is not really his fault, it's like Aaron Paul played Spidey, it'd be the same. They're naturally cool

  • JP Shoes

    Andrews acting as Spider-Man makes it feel like Spider-Man. Him becoming Spider-Man, him actually creating the webs and everything. Tom is to young and childish and has everything given to him while Andrew in the film and mentally works for it all! Just because you’re a british stud and all the girls like you doesn’t mean Andrew should get Spider-Man ripped from him.... really wish he got atleast an amazing Spider-Man 3 or had social media so I can keep up with the amazing actor

  • JP Shoes
    JP Shoes 23 days ago

    He was very good in hacksaw ridge and without Sony fucking him that might’ve never happened so maybe it was a good thing even though I loved him as Spider-Man and it will be karma for their franchise 😪

  • JP Shoes
    JP Shoes 23 days ago

    Everyone’s saying Garfield was a good actor with a shit script and that’s correct, maybe in the future there’s a slight possibility amazing Spider-Man 3 will come! They left a huge cliff hanger for them just to go to Tom Holland 😪

  • JP Shoes

    Andrew Being a rookie actor and young asf, is legit my favorite Spider-Man out of the 3, his acting was amazing, the romance was great and it was just so good I’m so pissed Sony did him dirty, when Gwen died his acting was phenomenal!!!!
