Andrew Garfield is giving more and more clues as to how his portrayal of Peter Parker is going to be different from the precedent set by Tobey Maguire, according to Comicbookmovie.com
According to the the site, Garfield spoke to The Times of India about his role in the film. He said that the part of Peter’s personality he identified with the most was his feelings about being a child without parents. “I have tried to explore Peter Parker as an orphan,” he said. “Orphans, I feel, are the strongest human beings on the planet. The amount of things they have to deal with in their lives is amazing. I have tried to capture how Peter copes with the feelings of being an underdog, his confusions and his self-doubt. This, I hope, has brought, a certain level of empathy and sensitivity to his character that explains how it helps him become the hero that he eventually turns out to be.”
He also said that he is not going to infringe upon Maguire’s version of Peter Parker. “I love the work that Tobey did,” he said. “I’ve watched him in the earlier there movies as a fan and I feel that what he did was perfect. I would never even begin to compare myself with him. And I feel it’s not the point, either.”
