David Fincher Not Too Enthusiastic about Andrew Garfield as Spider-ManPosted 1:56 pm on Monday, August 23rd, 2010 by Mike Villarreal
Director David Fincher recently spoke with MTV about his upcoming Facebook bio-film, The Social Network. The film stars actor Andrew Garfield, who was recently picked to play Peter Parker in the Spider-Man reboot. The director didn’t seem like he could picture Garfield in that role.
“I can’t imagine [Garfield] in spandex, I can’t imagine him being comfortable. He’s a wonderful actor, he’s incredibly skilled and empathic and a lovely guy.”
The Fight Club director was, at one point, attached to direct the film rather than Marc Webb.
“I took a meeting and I easily got myself out of that one. I’ve never been interested in [superhero movies]. I just could not imagine someone getting bit by a radioactive spider.”
Spider-Man doesn’t really fit David Fincher’s normal movie style, but then again, it doesn’t fit Marc Webb either. I guess we’ll just have to wait until more is revealed about the Spider-Man Reboot.
