Andrew Garfield: 'Tobey Maguire gave his blessing on new Spider-Man'

 Andrew Garfield recently revealed that he received a message of support  from Tobey Maguire regarding his participation in the new reboot of Spider-Man.

 Garfield told BBC News: "[Tobey] sent me a lovely message through a mutual friend. He gave me his support, and it meant a great deal, of course, because part of the reason I love and have continued to love this character was because of his portrayal. To step into those shoes is no mean feat."

 Garfield added: "It was generous of him to reach out and say something, so I'm thankful."

 Maguire, who played Spider-Man for three movies, is the second castmember of the original franchise to support the new project, after Kirsten Dunst did the same when asked about the reboot a month ago.

 On a personal note, I still can't stand behind this reboot but it was really thoughtful from Tobey to have that kind of gesture towards Garfield.

 What do you say? Are you willing to give the new Spider-Man a chance?


  1. I don't really get why they are relaunching this .. Okay money yes, but what do they have to offer that's new? I just don't get it..

  2. Me neither 5plitreel, I must admit the idea of a reboot is something I reject. As much as I love the character, I can`t seem to understand how they can reboot a franchise that is just a decade old! I guess money surpasses quality when making these kinds of movies.

  3. I was against the reboot also, I didn't see the need as the three spidey movies were good, maybe the third was a bit too much going on when they should of focused on Venom more but still no need. However the fact the original cast are supporting it is good.

  4. i know guys but come 1 don't say Just because of money there is different reasons 2 if it was the other way around you would of still cussed it i am on your side i mean like i like the old one better because we have never seen this one he will be good trust me P.S just in case you didn't know i think id like the old one better i don't know for the old one it like 60 new one 40 and i think the new one is like the comic one more still it supposed to be it not spiderman 1 redone
