The amazing Spider-Man famed actor has been enjoying his re-found recognition as Spider-Man after his part in the recent Spider-Man franchise, Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Fans are reevaluating their opinion of Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker as his role in the latest movie touched many hearts and gave his character a new arch and gave him a chance for redemption.
His character was highly appreciated in the movie as he brought chaotic energy mixed with his bitter feelings. His fans all over the world are tweeting about how he was the best Spider-Man and how he should have been given enough screen space to make his character come to life.
Along with being the recent most famous spider, Andrew has also enjoyed the popularity as being cast as Remus Lupin by fans as the beloved werewolf Marauder ‘Moony’.
The actor has been basking in the limelight, marking the recent Spider-Man movie as his four films of 2021 followed by Mainstream, The Eyes of Tammy Faye, and tick, tick…BOOM.
In his recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, the actor revealed that he was trying his very best to be cast in the Narnia franchise as Prince Caspian but he wasn’t able to nail the role as the casting team wasn’t satisfied with his looks. He shared, “I remember I was so desperate. I auditioned for Prince Caspian in ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’ and I thought, ‘This could be it, this could be it,’ And that handsome, brilliant actor Ben Barnes ended up getting the role. I think it was down to me and him, and I remember I was obsessed.”
Being dissatisfied with the decision, Garfield went to ask his agent about the reason he wasn’t accepted and was disheartened to find the reason. His agent told him, “It’s because they don’t think you’re handsome enough, Andrew.”
He further clarified that he doesn’t hold any grudge against Ben Barnes. He said, “Ben Barnes is a very handsome, talented man, So in retrospect, I’m not unhappy with the decision and I think he did a beautiful job.”
Instead of getting his chance as the Narnia Prince, Garfield got his breakthrough through his back-to-back dramas, “Never Let Me Go” and “The Social Network” in 2010 following by his debut as Amazing Spider-Man in 2012.
As this casting decision was made public, it caused an uproar in his fans. Even though the actor made his comments in a good manner, Twitter was filled with his defending fans. His fans seemed ready to go into war to defend their favorite, Spider-Man.
One of his fans wrote, “Oddly enough one of the criticisms of Garfield in The Amazing Spiderman was that he was too good looking to play “nerdy” Peter Parker.” It goes to show there’s no satisfying the ever-mutating beauty standards of Hollywood.”
While another commented, “ben and Andrew are the same men in a different font. Andrew is in italics and ben is bold, tell me I’m wrong, (sic)”
In his return in Spider-Man: No Way Homemade his fans realize his value and now many of them are asking for him to return on the big screens with another movie. Overall, Garfield’s fans are happy for their favorite actor to finally gain his well-deserved recognition.
