2016 Came and went and we never got The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and now Andrew Himself talks about being “fired”
When the sony hack of yesteryear was made public we all got to see some interesting pieces of information that shed light on Sony and The Spider-Man Franchise one of which was a email involving Sony’s Kaz Hirai and how he wanted Andrew Garfield Fired for missing a meeting to announce the future of Spider-Man.
When asked about it Andrew said “No, I don’t think so,” “What I’ll proudly say is that I didn’t compromise who I was, I was only ever myself. And that might have been difficult for some people.”
from what he says here and has said in previous interviews it sounds like the life of being a Superhero was just too much for the star and he was not in the right place at the time.
“I’d been reading the mythologists Joseph Campbell and James Hillman. And when I took on Spider-Man, I thought, ‘Holy shit! This is exquisite and terrifying and incredible. I have been given the responsibility of reaching my hand out from the big screen and putting it on [young boys’] shoulders. That is a gift for me and a big burden to carry. And I’m so up for it.’ I thought, if I can infuse all this ancient knowledge and wisdom into [Spider-Man], it could be profoundly affecting for young people in the audience. That was always my intention and what I tried to do. I was 25 and I was naive – not because of that, but because I was naive to the whole process of making one of those big-budget films.”
