Just a few short hours ago, Marvel and Sony announced that Spider-Man next stop will be in the MCU, but the announcement left out some key pieces of information, like is Andrew Garfield and his Amazing Spider-Man no more? Looks like one of the trades knows for sure.
According to The Wrap, Andrew Garfield will not be reprising his role as Spider-Man/Peter Parker when Spidey joins the Marvel cinematic universe.
Garfield, 31, starred in both of Marc Webb's Amazing Spider-Man films. While many people complimented Garfield for his acting skills, there were some that felt he was a bit too old to be portraying a teenager and his take on Peter Parker as being an angsty teenager didn't quite jive with the comic book iterations of Peter.
None of this should come as a surprise, especially since 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man ($262) and 2014's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($202) failed to sniff Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3 ($336M) at the domestic box office. Change was needed.
Next Spider-Man film arrives July 28, 2017.
