Comic-Con 2011: Andrew Garfield Clad in Costume at 'Amazing Spider-Man' Panel


Coming out as if he is a superhero geek, the Spider-Man depicter declares during his speech at the movie panel that Spider-Man saved his life.

Andrew Garfield has made public how close Spider-Man is to his life even before he was chosen to play the character in "The Amazing Spider-Man". Coming to the movie panel along with his on-screen love interest Emma Stone at San Diego Comic Con on Friday, July 22, he slipped into the superhero costume complete with the mask on.

"I needed Spider-Man in my life as a kid and he gave me hope," the 27-year-old Brit stated on his speech. "He was living mine and every skinny boy's fantasy." Admitting that Spider-Man alter ego Peter Parker inspired him, made him braver, and showed him how the bruises sustained in a struggle are worth it, he declared, "He saved my life."

Aside from Garfield's surprising outfit, the audience were presented with clips from the movie. It highlights Peter as he juggles teenage problems and his new super powers. There is also a dramatic moment when Uncle Ben gives a life lesson to Peter, who then asks Stacy on a date. Also unveiled in the footage is the first look at The Lizard.

Joining the panel, Rhys Ifans who plays Dr. Curt Conners/The Lizard said "the monster is as human as he" is. Meanwhile, director Marc Webb explained he did not make the film "darker" just to be different from Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" trilogy, but intended to make it more realistic in terms of the characters and the setting.

"The Amazing Spider-Man" will grace theaters across the nation on July 3, 2012. The first official trailer has been unleashed earlier this week after it was leaked online.
