Andrew Garfield's idea on how to replace him in future Spider-man movies

Apr. 29, 2014by: Alex Maidy

With all of the sequels and spin-offs following THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 this summer, it is hard to keep track of where Sony is taking their franchise. While we know that Andrew Garfield and Marc Webb will be returning for at least one more go round with Peter Parker, the future beyond that is a big question mark. As Garfield gets older, Sony is having the same issue they had with Tobey Maguire as he aged out of the role. But, is a reboot the wisest decision for the future of a unified cinematic universe?

Instead of re-casting the role of Peter Parker, Andrew Garfield told Comic Book Resources that he would be open to doing what Marvel Comics did in their Ultimate universe and have a new character inherit the mantle of Spider-man. Namely, getting rid of Peter Parker and introducing Miles Morales as the new webcrawler.

"I have given that thought. I think one of the amazing things about Spider-Man is that you don't see skin color when he's in the suit. You don't see any religious beliefs. You don't see any denominations. ... Miles Morales was a huge moment in this character's comic book life. And I do believe that we can do that. It's something I'm really interested in figuring out; an eloquent way of coexisting, or passing on the torch."

The introduction of Miles Morales, a Latino/African-American kid, was met with mixed reaction in the comics world with some praising the multi-ethnic character while others complained about it being a publicity stunt. The character himself led to many lobbying for actor Donald Glover to be cast as Spider-man before Andrew Garfield got the role. With the formula created by Oscorp in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 and surrounding films making it possible for anyone to become a new superhero or villain, it seems the easiest direction to continuing the story well past Garfield's involvement.

But, it all depends on how well fans react to THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 when it hits theaters this Friday.

Why not just have an older person play Parker. Parker was well into his 30's before they killed him off, or is he back yet? Since when does a Spider-Man film have to have him locked into his teens.

This version of Spiderman is based off of the Ultimate Spiderman comics (despite "Amazing" being in the title) and Ultimate Peter Parker was still in high school when he died.

Or or or, they could cast an actual teenager about 14 or so and not have to worry about it for the next 15 years. Maguire and Garfield were both in their late 20s playing high school kids.

I have a novel idea regarding where to go with Spiderman next... how about on vacation. As much as I like Spiderman, I'm getting burned out on the character. Please don't reboot the franchise, and for the love of God, don't retell his origin story yet again. I mean seriously, is there anyone left on the planet who doesn't know how Peter Parker became Spiderman.

The thing is that Sony absolutely must release a Spiderman film at least every five years or they lose the film rights. That's why it was rebooted so quickly after the Raimi films. Combine that with the fact that every Spiderman film basically prints its own money and we will be seeing them for quite a while.

I would rather the franchise just recast Spider Man with anther actor then not make Peter Parker the main character anymore.

A few things:
Miles Morales is half-black, half-Hispanic.
The Ultimate Comics stories focusing on Miles are strong, and sets up Miles in the mould of Peter without him being a carbon copy.
Making Peter Parker black/Hispanic might be one thing, but handing off the mantle of Spider-man to another character who happens to be black/Hispanic is not something I think we need to be upset about. It's like Steve Rogers sharing (and the passing) the Captain America mantle to Bucky, or Green Arrow

It's like Steve Rogers sharing (and the passing) the Captain America mantle to Bucky, or Green Arrow sharing the mantle with his son Connor (pre-new 52). It's a passing of the mantle, and I think that's perfectly legitimate.

So damn stupid

Peter Parker is Spider-Man. Spider-Man is white. End of story. Make a damn Luke Cage movie if you want a black, street hero.

Morales is a Hispanic last name so why not make him Hispanic ? why does any alternate version of a character have to be a Negro ? Nick Fury , Kingpin , The Human Torch I say they make this guy Hispanic and the Black Panther a white guy , a little turnaround is fairplay shit .

Did you just say Negro? Is my grandfather posting on here now with his 1930's racial descriptions? Maybe you could have called him a "darky" or something a little more elegant since you clearly seem to be a cunning linguist. Oh and you don't need a space before and after a coma but maybe you learned that at Klan University. Your ignorance is actually amazingly humorous because I bet you thought you were being coy by saying negro instead of going the distance. Go back to posting on AICN

i totally agree man. I was actually a little disappointed they changed the governors race in the walking dead since he's hispanic in the comics. Also Andrew should really just stick it out. I can't imagine he is getting a small check or bad rep for doing these movies. And a shout out to Tclayton who must be so proud to point out others bad grammar. Take a chill pill dude! I don't think rudy was trying to be racist at all. Thanks for your relevant points ellipsis . . .

If we want to talk about grammar though, a comma is a punctuation mark. A coma is a medical condition.

Listen if I jumped to conclusions I appoligize but it's not normal in my life to see people call another person a negro. I may have jumped off the ledge a little there but it just rubbed me the wrong way. And yes HoyleHaw you caught that, I was typing upside down and I missed the M (I feel like a dumbass). I'm not usually one to call out other people's grammar but like I said the post and usage of the word negro rubbed me the wrong way. I'm going to appoligize again if I made an unfair

age out wtf...as much as I want Spidy to come back to Marvel.
Peter Parker grows old and has a kid for cryin out loud and has a pretty decent and long career at least till the age of his 40's. What Im saying is Sony can squeeze out like atleast 6 films with the same actor as Spidy If they wanted to.

Am I the only one getting tired of hearing about the "ultimate" stuff? It seems like every article about spider man as fantastic four has something about ultimate universes in it. What's wrong with the original source material that we all grew up with?

So.... Andrew Garfield has no career yet and his already taking about leave this franchise? Oh... stupid people! Anyway, saw the movie.... not good, sorry. A romantic comedy with Spidey, short in terms of action, bad development in terms of villains, and we all know how it ends, so.... 5/10.

1) Actually, he's had a successful acting career since 2005.

2) He's being pragmatic. He's said nothing about leaving the franchise right now, just that one day it'll happen. He's going to either age out or move on before that happens... It happens all the time.

It also happens all the time that unpopular actors became famous playing this kind of characters and wants to leave them instantly. Then every movie they make are flops, and need to come back. Remember when Daniel Craig said he wants to leave the Bond franchise after his 2nd movie?

That has a strong chance of never happening, buddy. It is widely known that Garfield has been a Spider-Man fanatic ever since he was a kid. In fact, It's Spider-Man that got him through school and motivated him to act (look it up). This is his dream role and he's going to milk this for all that it's worth (and I've seen the 2nd move. Say what you will about the movie, but you can't deny his commitment to the spidey character). Again, being pragmatic.

Also, I don't see how Daniel Craig's

Also, I don't see how Daniel Craig's wanting to leave the Bond series can be a comparison. Craig has had a fantastic career way before Bond and will (more than likely) long after he's done.
