We only have a few short weeks until we find out, as a fan and a friend become Spidey's greatest enemies. Also released is a new promo image featuring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone from one of the few quiet moments in this exhilarating second chapter of the Marvel saga. Check it out, and then read on for some interesting character details courtesy of Andrew Garfield himself, who belives this particular superhero is Jewish.
In a recent interview, star Andrew Garfield talked about his method behind creating this version of Peter Parker, and claimed that Spider-Man is actually Jewish, and that it is a defining feature for the superhero.
"Spider-man is neurotic. Peter Parker is not a simple dude. He can't just switch off. He never feels like he's doing enough. And Peter suffers from self-doubt. He ums and ahs about his future because he's neurotic. He's Jewish. It's a defining feature. I hope Jewish people won't mind the cliché, because my father's Jewish. I have that in me for sure. He's an over-thinker. It would be much easier if he was a life-saving robot."
