Andrew Garfield Based His Spider-Man Performance On Porn, You Don’t Say…

The Superficial / June 28, 2012

“Hey, uh, is the guy supposed to have an erection? Anyone? And no one’s going to answer me. Great.”
Spit in your hand, punk.

While talking about his role as the new Spider-Man, Andrew Garfield reveals one of his inspirations was watching the Spider-Man porn parody Spider-ManXXX which really puts a whole of lot of things in perspective. Just a whole, whole lot. Via Starpulse:

“I watched it a few times. I watched it more from an inspirational stand point than from a sexual standpoint. I think you can find inspiration from anywhere when it comes to this character because it’s everyone’s; it belongs to everyone.”

Even better, apparently the porno’s director thinks this legitimizes him as an artist:

“This is totally awesome. It goes a long way to validate my efforts to reach out to a different demographic than the typical porn consumer, and to do justice to a character that I love. Thank you Andrew for the massive ego stroke.”

“Because, you know, when you’re taking an iconic character such as Spider-Man and making him bang some empty shell of a broad, you have to take great pains to honor the mythos. For example, he’s constantly tortured by his Uncle Ben’s murder, so I don’t really see him being into facials on account of the guilt. Will he shoot it on some tits? Absolutely. But never the face. From there, all you can do is sit back and hope the fans appreciate those little touches after they’re done jerking it. It’s why I got into this business.”
