After months of speculation, Sony has found its new Spider-Man.
It’s not Josh Hutcherson. Nor is it Jamie Bell, Anton Yelchin, Michael Angarano or Zac Efron.
It’s not even the contender I was personally rooting for, Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson).
So who is it? Andrew Garfield. If you don’t know that name, it goes without saying that you will soon. He’s twenty-six, was born in California but raised in England, and will be seen soon starring in The Social Network, the upcoming movie about the creators of Facebook.
Thoughts? I’m sure he’s a good actor, but I really thought they’d go with someone younger, since Peter Parker will apparently be back in high school in the new movie.
