NPR did an interview with the new guy playing Spiderman in the next movie.
As an adult, when Garfield finally put on the spider suit, it was an exciting experience — but also very uncomfortable.
“The reality of it is it’s kind of that crazy-awful thing where fantasy is no longer,” Garfield says. “You’re truly in spandex, which actually sucks, in reality. It’s hard work being that guy; it’s tough.”
To compensate for the limitations of the suit, Garfield studied the movements of athletes like Muhammad Ali and the soccer player Ronaldo.
“I wanted to have a sense of freedom,” says Garfield, “because that’s part of the point of a disguise. Because it gives you anonymity, and therefore freedom. I wanted to feel sexy in it — I didn’t want to feel uncomfortable and like I was adjusting all the time.”
