Andrew Garfield has had a lot of time to think about his time playing Spider-Man for two films before Sony’s recent decision to once again reboot the franchise, and his thoughts have not been pleasant.
“[The films are] mass-marketed. Like, ‘We want 50-year-old white men to love it, gay teenagers to love it, bigot homophobes in Middle America to love it, 11-year-old girls to love it.’ That’s canning Coke. So that was a bummer,” Garfield tells the Playlist.
“I understand people want to make a lot of money, and they’re going to spend a lot of money so the playpen can be as big as it was. I can’t live that way. It sounds like a prison, to be honest, living within those expectations.” Yikes.
But don’t worry, Garfield hasn’t gone off the idea of big-budget studio movies all together.”I’m not going to shy away from something that a lot of people are going to see,” he says. “F—it. Bring it on. Life’s short.”
