Spider-man reboot stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone talk to MTV

25 November 2010

The stars of the Marc Webb directed Spider-Man reboot have given an update on the eagerly anticipated film slated for a July 4th 2012 release in the UK.

In an interview with MTV, Never Let Me Go hunk Andrew Garfield said

"I was told by someone who should be listened to — I'm not going to say who it was — he said, "Don't try and live up to it. Don't think you have to live up to what that image and that symbol means to people." And first I thought that was really reassuring. But then you go, "No, I really want to live up to that symbol." When I was 12-years-old I saw the struggle Peter Parker was going through to be of use to society, I wanted to live up to that. And I realized that even Peter Parker is trying to live up to that symbol of Spider-Man he's created. That's what makes him so special: he's undeniably human and going through the same struggles as everyone else. So you try to live up to that symbol and then you have to be OK not living up to it, because not even Peter Parker can do it."

While his gorgeous co star and love interest Emma Stone of Easy A fame, who will portray Gwen Stacy in the reboot said in her interview with MTV

"Today I went and did hair tests, because I have blonde hair now since Gwen has blonde hair. My natural hair is blonde, so it's kind of nice. I looked in the mirror and said, "Oh my god, it's me again, it's been so long!" We're finalizing the visual stuff. And I think we'll start actually rehearsing, because we start shooting in two weeks. Andrew and I went and learned about science yesterday. Gwen really likes science, so we learned about science. I was home-schooled, so I never went to chemistry class in a traditional setting like Gwen is into. That was really beneficial."

I'm looking forward to this one as a huge fan of Spider-man, the more and more I hear/read about it 2012 can't get here any quicker!
