Andrew Garfield On THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2: "Screw The Critics."

With its release date coming ever so quickly, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has easily become the must see movie of the summer. It is to no surprise that 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man was nowhere near as good as it really could have been, as both Marc Webb and Sony producers have said they should have done something a little more different. But alas, we have the much anticipated sequel, set to hit theatres everywhere on April 17th if you live in Australia and if you don't, sucked in. 

Earlier this week IGN sat down with Andrew Garfield to discuss the film and how different it is to its' predecessor. Garfield touched on the original film's unoriginality by saying, "Obviously with the first film we were obligated to retreading the origin story, which Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire did so beautifully," Garfield continued, "But now that's done, and now we get to own the character as filmmakers and as Peter, you know what I mean? I'm super excited, I mean it was much more fun to make because of that, I think." Following these thoughts Garfield interestingly said something that every Spider-Man fan has been saying ever since Garfield's first outing, "Screw the critics... I mean screw the scrutiny and that's the motto of life aswell. If there was one bit of advise I could give to my younger self, it's 'don't care what others think of you'." 

Mr Garfield also touched on Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) and Peter Parker's friendship in the film. Garfield said, "The bond is really deep. It goes deeper than being childhood friends. There is this intertwined thing that they have after they both lost their parents," The Golden Globe nominated actor continued, "Their relationship is really built on abandonment and this lack of a father figure is what leads to them having compassion and understanding for each other. It's a complicated relationship, but it's a grounded one." 

You can check out the full interview in the video below. Andrew Garfield and his on and off screen love, Emma Stone, will appear on The Graham Norton Show on April 11th on BBC 1.
