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."

    Well now imagine after post credit scene in spider man 3 of MCU there will be Tom tobey and Andrew I would be like SONY DID ACTUALLY LISTEN

    It’s probably also because he was a 30-something year old playing a high school sophmore

    That scene where Gwen died, it was on point. I think he is a Good actor. I dont get why among the three actors who played spiderman he is the least favorite.

    Andrew Garfield was too good to be "amazing" spiderman. Hacksaw ridge shows how damm good he is as an actor ♥️

    TASM 1 and 2 are far better than the childish shit by MCU and easily the best Spidey movies. Andrew is hands down the perfect spidey and must be given another chance. Believe me when I say that I still got my fingers crossed ans still hopin for Andrew to swing right back into the role.

  • Xplecit Tez

    I still think Andy is the besy Spidey for sure. I'd say Tobey is next but Tom is absolutely trash.

    His movies was was wack and plus they keep starting over diong the same strories as him bieng back in highschool I had a lots of Spiderman comic books and they need to start putting them stories together for new movies and put more super heroes on the move with him like they do in the comic books to make it better because they keep doing the same thing over and over

    This really is my favorite Spider-Man, especially the heroin. I don't know why but if I'm going to choose to watch only one Spider-Man movie. I will definitely watch The Amazing Spider-Man without a doubt!

    I loved him in Spider-Man but it's not his fault it's the writers and after Gwen died the next movie was just horrible
    And why all the hate after tom holland comes along I remember everyone gushing over Andrew Garfields Spider-Man and when Jamie fox acted that spider man yooooo that one was good

  • Maharajan Maharajan

    All three are good in their own ways. But Tom is my favourite,coz he looks like a school boy, a bit nerdy , a science genius, balanced stunts and humor etc.. and he is the first Spiderman I saw so I'm pretty impressed.
    P.S -anothe thing that makes him cool is "he loves Tony Stark"

    The best thing about Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man is that it's very realistic.Both movies successfully showcase the reality of life without any excess drama and thus speak to the fans directly...

    Ed Norton would have been an amazing Spider -Man. Of course we’re talking about an early 30 something incarnation of the phenomenal actor known as Edward Norton.

    I like garfield version of spiderman. for me thats the best version of spiderman those dark tone type of a story, i feel like im watching christopher nolans batman trilogy... Tobey's version is a gimme'.... while tom holland's version is more like in the comic's. Light and bubbly to fit in MCU's avengers...for the record Garfields spidermans perfect fit for Tom hardy's Venom.

    The only thing I can say is that Garfield fit the physical description of Spider-Man from the early comics which is 'lanky'.
    He made an excellent college Spider-Man. And the entire Gwen love story is closer to the comics than Peter Parker knowing MJ from childhood which is ridiculous.

    Garfield's character was good. I liked it. He was a different type of Spider-Man like the tall handsome 1990s Spider-Man Saturday morning cartoon.
    The movies were just bad. Nothing Garfield could do.
