Actor Andrew Garfield on Spider-Man: ‘Why can’t he be into boys?’

On Thursday, July 11th, 2013

Opening Night Of The US Premiere Of "BULL At Brits" Off Broadway After PartyAs “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” is set to hit theaters in 2014, the actor playing the super hero is raising a question about Spider-Man’s sexuality. As reported by Entertainment Weekly on July 10, actor Andrew Garfield is asking “why can’t we discover that Peter is exploring his sexuality?”

Garfield said he had a philosophical discussion with producer Matt Tolmach on the issue and the character of Mary Jane who fans know as “MJ”. He said he discussed the possibility of MJ actually being a dude and the Peter all fans grew to know was actually questioning his sexuality. Garfield says he raised the question in a joking manner but was kind of serious about the super hero perhaps being gay.

He told EW:

“Why can’t we discover that Peter is exploring his sexuality? It’s hardly even groundbreaking!…So why can’t he be gay? Why can’t he be into boys?”

For one thing, it would be rewriting history, or adding to the history of the character that is well known and it also shouldn’t matter what Spider-Man’s sexuality is, but it is a reflection of how society has changed in regards to homosexuality that the question has even raised, especially by a straight actor playing the role.

Garfield does have someone in mind to play the male version of “MJ”.

“I’ve been obsessed with Michael B. Jordon since The Wire,” he tells EW. “He’s so charismatic and talented. It’d be even better – we’d have interracial bisexuality!”

It seems as though Garfield has a man crush. As far as Spider-Man having an onscreen male lover, Garfield has already raised the question to his director Marc Webb as well.

About - Tarringo T. Vaughan always believed he had a love affair with literature. One of the first pictures he saw of himself was of him at maybe the age of three or four year’s old sitting with a book in his hand. But for Tarringo, growing up in the depths of the inner city both in Boston, MA and Springfield, MA made him believe that expression through the literary voice was un-cool and unattainable. As a very quiet and shy child he learned it became very valuable in his self expression. Born in 1976, Tarringo was the first child, grandchild and nephew in a family that had grown accustomed to struggle. His mother was a teenager who quickly lost the support of my father who today he knows very little of. These aspects of his life triggered the inspiration of his pen.
