>> ALL RIGHT.

THAT WAS FUN!

WHAT ARE YOU DOING!

WHOOO!

>> Jon: THAT WOULD MAKE AN AMAZING MUSICAL.

( LAUGHTER ).

PLEASE WELCOME ANDREW GARFIELD.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) HEY.

YOU, SIR, YOU, SIR--

>> NO, YOU.

>> Jon: CONGRATULATIONS.

>> ON WHAT?

>> Jon: ON THIS WHOLE THING YOU'RE DOING, STAR-LIKE.

TELL ME ABOUT THIS "SPIDER-MAN."

>> THIS "SPIDER-MAN" HAS BEEN AROUND 50 YEARS, JON.

>> Jon: THAT'S DAUNTING, IS IT NOT?

>> TERRIFYING.

>> Jon: EVERYONE KNOWS SPIDER-MAN, COMIC BOOK FANS ARE SOME OF THE MOST RABID FANS.

DO YOU FEAR THEIR WRATH.

DO YOU ENJOY THEIR ENTHUSIASM?

WHAT'S BEEN YOUR EXPERIENCE?

>> ALL OF THAT.

I WENT TO COMIC-CON LAST YEAR AND I WAS TERRIFIED AND I WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY KNEW I

WAS JUST ONE OF THEM SO I KIND OF APPEARED IN THE AUDIENCE AS A FAN IN, LIKE, A CRAPPY COST

SCOURGE TRIED TO MAKE THEM KNOW THAT I WAS-- THAT I WAS JUST AS KIND OF FANATICAL AND I'LL BE

THE ONE IN THE THEATER SHOUTING,

"WHY DO THEY CALL THAT BRITISH SCUM BACK AS MY FAVORITE SUPER HERO?

>> Jon: REALLY.

YOU HAVE A BLOG DEDICATED TO HATING ANDREW GARFIELD?

>> I SHOULD.

THAT'S A GOOD IDEA.

>> Jon: I HAVE TO TELL YOU,

THOUGH, THE SUITS THEY HAVE NOW-- I'M OLD ENOUGH TO REMEMBER THE OLD SUPER HERO MOVIES AND

GEORGE REEVES AND THE TV SHOW AND THE COSTUME WAS, "LOOK, I AM IN MY UNDERWEAR."

THIS SUIT-- IT IS FROM THE MOVIE.

THIS IS YOU OFF SET IN THE SUIT.

YOU'RE GETTING LUNCH.

>> YEAH.

( LAUGHTER ).

>> Jon: BUT DID YOU-- WHAT IS-- TELL ME ABOUT THAT SUIT.

>> NO, IT'S SPANDEX, AND IT'S HARD TO URINATE.

( LAUGHTER ) AND WHEN YOU --

>> INTERESTING THAT YOU BRING THAT UP.

DO WE HAVE THAT?

THERE WE GO.

( LAUGHTER ).

( CHEERS ) THAT-- THAT IS ACTUALLY A STILL

FROM-- I THINK SOMEBODY MUST HAVE BEEN TAKING THE PICTURE.

( LAUGHTER )

>> THIS IS-- THIS IS A PICTURE,

JON, THAT I TOOK THROUGHOUT WITH THE STILL PHOTOGRAPHER.

WE HAD LIKE, "A DAY IN THE LIFE OF SPIDER-MAN MAN."

>> Jon: ARE YOU SERIOUS?

>> I WAS SO FRUSTRATED CERTAIN DAYS IN THAT SUIT I NEEDED TO DO SOMETHING STUPID.

WE WENT AROUND THE SONY LOT.

I THINK THAT'S ME TAKING A ( BLEEP ).

>> Jon: I DON'T KNOW IF WE HAVE THE WHOLE BOOK.

SO JUST YOU GO AROUND--

>> THERE WAS ONE DAY.

WHO WANTS TO HEAR AN ACTOR COMPLAIN ABOUT BEING SPIDER-MAN?

NO WONG RIGHT?

BUT IT SUCKS.

SPANDEX ISN'T FUN.

SPANDEX IS NOT FUN.

>> Jon: BUT IT IS SLIMMING.

>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

OH, MY GOD, REALLY.

>> Jon: THOUGHT YOU LOOKED TERRIFIC IN THAT.

>> THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

>> Jon: SUPERMAN MAY BE THE MAN OF STEEL, BUT IN THAT, YOU ARE BUNS OF STEEL.

YOU, I THOUGHT IT WAS-- YOU SAID SPIDER-MAN WAS YOUR GUY GROWING UP?

>> HE WAS.

I HATE TO ADMIT IT BECAUSE IT ADDS TO THEISH AND KNOW HOW MUCH IT MEANS AND HOW MUCH IT MEANS

TO A BUSH OF SKINNY KIDS LIKE ME IS THERE WHAT WAS IT ABOUT SPIDER-MAN?

WHEN I WAS LITTLE SUPERMAN WAS-- BECAUSE SUPERMAN SEEMED LIKE-- EVERYBODY SAID TO HAVE THE

CONVERSATIONS, WHO WOULD WIN IN A FIGHT BETWEEN SUPERMAN?

AND WE WERE LIKE SUPERMAN.

UNLESS YOU HAVE KRYPTONITE.

SO SPIDER-MAN ALWAYS, ANOTHER NICE COSTUME, HAS SOME WEBS BUT SUPERMAN WOULD BEAT THE

( BLEEP ) OUT OF THAT DUDE.

DON'T YOU THINK?

>> YEAH, YOU MAKE A SOLID POINT.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE THEY COME FROM.

LET'S HOPE THOSE TWO NEVER FEEL THE NEED TO FIGHT.

( LAUGHTER ).

>> Jon: OR WE JUST CAME UP WITH THE GREATEST MOVIE OF ALL TIME.

( LAUGHTER ) ( APPLAUSE ) SPIDER-MAN VERSUS SUPERMAN-- NO,

I-- BECAUSE I USED TO LOVE THE ORIGIN MYTHS, ALL THOSE THINGS.

DID YOU DISCOVER IT THROUGH COMIC BOOKS OR ARE YOU YOUNG ENOUGH THAT THE MOVIE WAS OUT

WHEN YOU WERE, LIKE A KID.

I WAS THREE WHEN TOBY MA-- NO,

THAT WOULD MAKE ME 12 NOW.

NO, THE ANIMATED SERIES WAS MY FIRST.

>> Jon: YOU WERE, LIKE, 10 WHEN THE MOVIE CAME OUT.

>> I WAS 19.

>> Jon: WHEN IT CAME OUT?

OH, LET ME JUST SAY THIS,

( BLEEP ) YOU.

YOU YOUNG PERSON YOU.

THAT'S NICE.

WELL, THIS IS GREAT.

YOU KNOW, IT'S NICE TO HAVE SOMEBODY INVOLVED IN IT, THAT REALLY DOES KIND OF REVERE THE CHARACTERS.

I THINK YOU NEED THAT TO SOME EXTENT TO CARRY IT THROUGH.

>> GRAY.

IT CREATES A HEALTHY PRESSURE,

THAT KNOWLEDGE, WHAT IT MEANS.

>> Jon: AND IT'S NICE TO-- SPIDER-MAN HAS ALWAYS HAD THAT-- HE WAS BITTEN BY A NEUROTIC

SPIRED AND IT'S NICE TO SEE YOU'RE CARRYING THAT TRADITION THROUGH.

I'M REALLY, REALLY TRYING.

>> Jon: BY THE WAY, HOW DID YOU PEE IN THAT THING?

>> YOU HAVE TO ESCAPE IT.

YOU HAVE TO ESCAPE THE THING.

>> Jon: SO YOU HAVE TO HAVE A PENILE HOUDINI?

( LAUGHTER ) DO YOU-- DO YOU EVERY TIME YOU PEE, DO YOU GO ♪ TA-DA ♪ ♪

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN IT'S IN THE THEATERS JULY 3.
