Andrew Garfield Says He Has ‘Nothing To Do’ With The Fourth AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Movie
With the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hitting last week, interest for the Marc Webb directed sequel has been kicked up a notch or two. The cast and crew of the upcoming Spidey flick recently sat down to talk about some of the action we saw with Yahoo Movies. Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, and Marc Webb touched on some of the things that will be explored in the second film…and the third, and the fourth. The third and fourth films are already scheduled for release, but it doesn’t sound like everyone is on board. Andrew Garfield sounded a little hesitant about film number four.
While Stone, Foxx, and Webb all shared some interesting insights into their characters and the film’s inner workings which you can watch below, it was the star of the show that offered up some of the most interesting quotes. Garfield talked a little about the first film’s shortcomings and how he thinks the sequel really got things right (transcript via CBM):
I sat with [screenwriters] Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman in a restaurant for lunch in New York, and they pitched me this movie… And I was crying. I’m an easy crier, but I was really emotionally moved by what they said to me. And I think a lot of my emotion was because these two guys love the character as much as I do. I think there was something missing in the first one because our focus wasn’t on character as much we were trying to keep a number of plates spinning in the air – How can we reintroduce the character? How do we not upset this guy or this guy? That was a tough wasteland we had to move through.
Director Marc Webb agreed in part with Garfield’s comments about the second film opening up more possibilities and a chance to shift the focus, saying “You know the first time we had to deal with the origin story which was fun, but tricky. This time around the flood gates opened for all of us…This time around we’ve really focused on making this a driving action movie from the get go.“
We know that a third and fourth film are already planned, most likely exploring the Sinister Six. When asked about the future of the franchise beyond his upcoming bout with Rhino, Electro and Green Goblin, the film’s star wasn’t too sure. He confirms he has signed on for the third one, but he doesn’t have a horse in the race with four as of now:
That’s all news to me. I mean I’m under contract for another one after this. As far as a fourth one? That’s not anything to do with me. But yeah, I think what we’re doing here is we’ve established the world. Now we get to really play inside that world. Use our imagination, and kind of expand. That what this film is.
Webb says that he had envisioned the movies as a series, “a trilogy to be totally frank.” It’s interesting that both men are taking things from a trilogy approach. If Garfield isn’t playing hardball for his contract re-negotiations, then Spider-Man 4 will obviously be going in a different direction. It would be a weird thing to do but the fourth film could bee the first of the spin-off movies we’ve been hearing so much about. What do you think about the actor and director’s comments?
