Spider-Man is back at San Diego Comic Con. Of course, he never really left, as there are a slew of Spidey fans whether or not there’s a huge big screen production in the works, but this year the pressure is on because not only is a new movie on the way, but The Amazing Spider-Man will have to outdo or at least live up to the standards set by the former Spider-Man trilogy as well as decades of other material.
Director Marc Webb and star Andrew Garfield had a busy day, as not only did they hit Hall H in true SDCC fashion, but they participated in a press conference, press line and more intimate interviews, too. During a sit down with Webb, he touched on the changes he opted to make in terms of the Spider-Mans costume as well as the addition of something he calls “Spider Vision,” a technique you can catch in the latter portion of the film’s trailer.
Meanwhile, Garfield is simply floored by the experience as the character has always meant so much to him. When he was just two-years-old, Garfield dressed up as Spidey for Halloween. Garfield also touched on the grander scale explaining, “To be here representing a symbol that means so much to me and so much to millions and billions and trillions of people, comes with so much feeling, pride, excitement, responsibility, weight.”
Take a look at both interviews in the video clip below.
