Andrew Garfield Says Playing 'Spider-Man' Felt 'Like A Prison'

Now that he's no longer Spider-Man, Andrew Garfield isn't shying away from talking about his experience starring as the superhero.

"I was well up for the challenge and I still am," Garfield tells Indie Wire.

"The pressure to get it right, to please everyone... it's not going to happen," he says.

"You end up pleasing no one, or everyone just a little bit. Like, 'Eh, that was good.'"

Garfield says the marketing strategy of selling to everyone doesn't really work.

"It's like 'We want 50-year-old white men to love it, gay teenagers to love it, bigot homophobes in Middle America to love it, 11-year-old girls to love it.' That's canning Coke," he explains. "So that aspect of it was a bummer."

"It was about authenticity, flavor, and truth, but at the same time, I understand people want to make a lot of money, and they're going to spend a lot of money so the playpen can be as big as it was."

"I can't live that way; it sounds like a prison, to be honest, living within those expectations," he says.

Tom Holland takes over as Sony's Spider-Man, in partnership with Marvel, and makes his first appearance in next year's 'Captain America: Civil War'.
