The first official image of Andrew Garfield – confirmed this week as a contender for the 2011 Orange Wednesdays Rising Star Award – as superman Spider-Man has been released.
As announced last June, Garfield is donning the legendary red and blue suit for this as yet untitled Spider-Man Movie which is expected to hit the screen next year.
The film is being Directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt.
On selecting Garfield, director Marc Webb said, “Though his name may be new to many, those who know this young actor’s work understand his extraordinary talents. He has a rare combination of intelligence, wit, and humanity. Mark my words, you will love Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker.”
Garfield recently starred opposite Jesse Eisenberg and Justin Timberlake in Aaron Sorkin’s The Social Network.
