Andrew Garfield is “happy” to hand over the Spider-Man suit to Tom Holland


Andrew Garfield was axed as Spider-Man this year but insists he’s not bitter about Brit actor Tom Holland taking the superhero role.

The 32-year-old starred in two ‘Spider-Man’ movies, in 2012 and 2014, but says he is looking forward to watching Holland, 19, in action.


He told Total Film magazine: “To be honest, I am really excited that he is going is to be playing the part.

“I think he’s perfect for it. I’m really happy and glad – and I really mean that – because I get to be a fan again.

“I can buy popcorn and watch, and that makes me really, really happy.”

This comes shortly after Kevin Feige, the President of Marvel Studios, admitted the rebooted ‘Spider-Man’ will be inspired by the work of director John Hughes, who helmed ‘The Breakfast Club’ and ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’.
