We're not impressed!

Andrew Garfield was snapped in Cancun, Mexico posing for a media event and introduced as the new Spider-Man for the upcoming feature film.

We just can't seem to get behind this.

We think Zac Efron or Logan Lerman would have been a better choice.

What do U think?

    Perfect mix of nerdy and hot. He's a great choice. First!



  2. 2

    You must live to irritate people PeRez Hilton. What the FUCK would you know? Zac Efron? Peter Parker is supposed to be a geek, especially in High School, not a pretty boy. Maybe this guy can actually, I don't know, ACT?



  3. 3

    The only reason they picked him is because he resembles Robert Pattinson and is British. This is totally going to flop and they deff. should of opted for a hotter Spiderman, not that I think Tobey McGuire was good-looking or anything. Gees these casting directors SUCK BALLS.



  4. 4

    yeah he looks like spiderman's dad TOO OLD



  5. 5

    Hahaha.. your kidding about efron…. right? He would never be able to pull it off. This guy is a great actor seen some of his stuff over here in the uk and I think he definately looks the part.



  6. 6

    Perez, perhaps if you thought with the head on your shoulders instead of the one between your legs you would understand. Peter Parker is not a Zack Efron, he isn't all abs and sexy hair etc. He is the average guy that couldn't get the girl, that became something more.



  7. 7

    Peter Parker is a picked-on, tormented nerd. He is not a pretty boy. This guy is a really good actor and they've picked a great director. They're actually thinking outside of the box. Anything with Spider-man on it is going to be a hit, but just like the Batman overhaul, this one might actually get good reviews as well.



  8. 8

    He Definatly doesnt look the part! the role should have went to Logan Lerman! he would have been perfect! this guy looks damn near 30… and he sopossed to play a 15 year old? hmmm i really dont think the spideman reboot will be a hit!….



  9. 9

    Do you know the Peter Parker character at all? He is awkward and in no way Zac Efron you dolt. That is why Tobey McGuire was so perfect for the role. I swear you just want teenage cuties on the screen so you can fantasize about them. You care nothing about staying true to characters.



  10. 10

    I think the other kid they were considering would have been a better suit in my opinion.



  11. 11

    hes a great choice! never zac efron or logan lerman! NO NO NO andrew is the perfect choice kudos to him



  12. 12

    Why because they are young boys? Perez, Zac looks way too feminine to be Peter Parker and maybe Logan would have been a decent choice, but maybe this guy is a really good actor. Not too mention the studio got him for 3.5 million for all three movies, whereas Logan probably would have commanded more. Plus I like that he's relatively unknown and looks geeky. Personally, I would rather they not have another Spiderman. Kill the series and give this guy a different role.



  13. 13

    zac as a spiderman?? NEVER!



  14. 14

    Brilliant Choice - Im well impressed!!! I know ANYONE would have been better than Toby Maguire..but this guy is a massive step up. He was amazing in Boy A and I cant wait to see him as Spiderman. Fingers X they make a decent movie this time :-)



  15. 15

    He looks like a weasel.



  16. 16

    Stfu, Perez. Zac Efron? What is with you and twink faces? My god. This guy is like a hot nerd, that's what peter parker should be. Tobey was simply nerd. This guy looks like he owns a cock thank goodness!



  17. 17

    Awful choice!!! I think they've killed the franchise. Zac Efron actually looks like Peter Parker in the original comic. If he could have added the appropriate depth, he would have been a much better choice.



  18. 18

    I've seen most of Andrew Garfield's movies and BBC stuff. He's an amazing actor and would be a good choice. I might actually watch this one.



  19. 19

    logan would be a good choice too



  20. 20

    So fucking shallow, you haven't even seen him act yet



  21. 21

    Give him a chance! He's adorable and slightly geeky so I think he'll be good.



  22. 22

    hes pretty cute…

    but Toby just WAS Peter Parker…. no one will be able to take his place

    and No… Z. Efron CANNOT be spider man…. just… no >:P



  23. 23

    I don't see the appeal with this dude…but I disliked Daniel Craig when they introduced him as Bond and then he rocked so I'm willing to give this guy a chance.



  24. 24

    If you read and Romita Jr's Amazing Spider-man comics (which you don't) you'd see that he looks like his drawings. He looks like he was drawn by one of the most prominent Spider-Man artists. So I think he will be wicked. Don't judge a book by its cover.



  25. 25

    Shut up, Perez, it's about who can play geeky, sexy, and tough simultaneously not whoever you'd like to shoot your jizz into like the Twilight franchise.



  26. 26

    he doesn't have the same look that Tobey does

    he lacks the physical characteristics of spider man according to the comics



  27. 27

    I hope Lindsay Lohan is cast as Mary Jane!



  28. 28

    Yeah,he looks dorky enough to be Peter Parker



  29. 29

    After most outlets were shocked at the casting of Heath Ledger as the Joker, or Michael Keaton as Batman, I fully trust a studio that invests $200 mil into their biggest franchise to cast the right guy. Once he's in costume/character he'll be fine.



  30. 30

    Well, 5 stars for getting the nerd look right. But still, he doesn't look the part to me. Peter Parker isn't suppossed to be a heartthrob, but he's not suppossed to be repulsive either. And this guy is major fugly. And everyone hates ugly people. Even ugly people. Bad casting choice. Going to make a prediction: When the blowback reaches the studio about this guy, they'll drop him for someone else. No way a big budget and franchise reboot are going to be risked over this knob.

    Re: Batgirlbeyond
    LOVE ur name :D



  32. 32

    I will have to see the movie before I can decide I guess…



  33. 33

    I think he's a great choice… spiderman is supposed to be NERDY and cute not buff and sexy.. seriously.. do you know anything at all?



  34. 34

    Spiderman is suppose to be geeky, not a pretty boy so Zac Efron would be a horrid choice, but yes, this guy looks too old.

  35. Ang M says – reply to this


    35

    WTF, Zack Efron? No. Peter Parker is an awkward nerd. Tobey was so perfect. I'll give this kid a chance.



  36. 36

    Tobey McGuire was the perfect Spiderman - I can't imagine anyone else in the part ! Besides being a really good actor he has such a great voice !! I just really love his voice ! I hate when they try to recast a part that you really identify an actor with - I wish they would just not make any more Spiderman movies if they think Tobey is too old !



  37. 37

    Re: Laroccakiddd
    he resembles Robert Pattinson?! Are you blind?? They look nothing alike! (Personally I prefer the looks of this guy)



  38. 38

    Of all the choices, including Tobey McG, this fella looks most like the 1960's cartoon version of Peter Parker, which is a good thing! T.M. geeked it up too much. This will be better.



  39. 39

    After Pee-Wee Herman does his film with Judd Apatow producing, he's slated to play 007 in a future Bond movie (it's in Smell-O-Vision). Gabourey Sidibe will play a Bond girl. And Richard Simmons will play the villain



  40. 40

    He's a fantastic young actor - first came across him in the Red Riding Trilogy (great series). Like someone else said - 'perfect mix of nerdy and hot'. (Zac Efron - oh please fatso, that little hairdo is no actor….).



  41. 41

    Awful choice

  42. Laura says – reply to this


    42

    yes he is.



  43. 43

    Zac Efron could have perhaps been the worst choice. And that Logan Lerman kid looked like he was 12.



  44. 44

    He looks like a young Anthony Perkins from the movie Psycho.

  45. AshGB says – reply to this


    45

    ZAC EFRON would have been better!



  46. 46

    I didn't know Spiderman was a gay Jonas Brothers wannabe…



  47. 47

    Does anyone else think that he looks like Norman Bates from Psycho!?!?

  48. pi pi says – reply to this


    48

    I think he looks like a young Danny Kaye.

  49. ass says – reply to this


    49

    You really just don't get it, do you Perez? The fact that you mentioned Zac Efron without laughing shows that you have no clue.



  50. 50

    Remember when people hated the fact that Robert Pattinson would be cast as Edward. They called him ugly and said he didn't look the part, now look at him. I saw this guy in 'Lions for Lambs' and I thought he was a very good actor. The professionals see something in these people that we don't when they cast them. Give him a chance. Let's see what he has to bring to the table.



  51. 51

    logan lerman would have been the perfect pick! logan is an amazing actor, and not to mention beyond gorgeous



  52. 52

    Peter Parker is not a heart throb he's a awkward teenager who love science. This guy definitely looks the part. Everyone seems to think he's a good actor so give him a shot. Efron couldnt pull it off. He's more of a personality than an actor. I think going with and unknown is perfect:)



  53. 53

    I laugh at the fact that you think Zac Efron would have made a better Spiderman. You know nothing, you dumb prick.

  54. Low says – reply to this


    54

    Way to fuck the movie up with this casting choice.



  55. 55

    Zac maybe but I dunno if hes nerdy enough but I wanted LOGAN LERMAN!!!



  56. 56

    gay spidey



  57. 57

    Zac efron? Have you not seen the Spiderman films? Peter Parker is supposed to be a geek, Zac could not pull that off. Andrew Garfield is perfect, how can you tell from what he looks like if he'll be good for the role or not? Superficial much?



  58. 58

    U R A DUMB FUCK PEREZ!

  59. Eris says – reply to this


    59

    lol efron would be a worse choice then this. I kind of preferred if they chose the kid in the percy jackson film.



  60. 60

    he is so not going to be a good spiderman lol



  61. 61

    Re: Laroccakiddd – wth? he does not in any way resemble Pattinson. And I guess this guy seems ok, I'm just use to Toby.



  62. 62

    Logan Lerman for sure! Love that kid!



  63. 63

    Re: Nelly_In_SJ – Nelly - While I don't disagree with your disagreement over Zac Efron, I will disagree that Peter Parker is supposed to be a geek. That's why I just couldn't get behind McGuire/McGwire/Whatever as Spiderman. SURE he's geeky at first, but with all those Spidey powers Parker developed a much bigger sense of swagger throughout the comics. McGwire never showed this (or the writers/director, whoever you wanna blame) as the Spiderman trilogy thus far played out. He just … stayed a geek. I wish they had somehow managed to keep their title star and revamped him into a thoughtful-used-to-be-a-geek but now with mega testosterone kinda Parker.

    It would more accurately reflect the character as far as the comics went …

    God, speaking of geeks …



  64. 64

    LOGAN LERMAN FOR THE WIN



  65. 65

    shows what you know, zac efron? really? i actually think this guy looks the part and ive seen one or two thingsa with him in and he was pretty good



  66. 66

    i think he look a lot more like a young Wolverine… but Zack is to pretty for spider man… Logan seems very young… i think he is a good choise
