To say that there hasn't been a dearth of Spider-Man films in Hollywood would be an understatement. The box office and critical success of Sam Raimi's 2002 picture created a cinematic craze, with sequels and reboots following. Some have begun to ask whether there are simply too many films focusing on the famed wall-crawler in recent years. Andrew Garfield, who played Peter Parker in the Spider-Man flicks, was recently asked for his thoughts on the subject, and it appears that he has no objection to the constant flow of pictures.
When Andrew Garfield's run as Spider-Man came to an end with 2014's The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Sony lost no time in announcing a new Spidey. Garfield recently spoke with Sirius XM's Andy Cohen, during which the presenter expressed his displeasure with the enormous number of Spider-Man films. After respectfully disagreeing with Cohen's comments, the actor who plays Tammy Faye in the film Eyes of Tammy Faye stated why he believes the character has grown so popular in film and mainstream culture: “I’m afraid I can’t co-sign that one with you. It’s like Hamlet, like you can never get enough Hamlets or Macbeths … I will vouch for the character for a second in the sense that it’s the only superhero where he’s covered head to toe. You don’t see skin color, you don’t see sexual orientation, you don’t see any of those things. Everyone can project themselves into the suit, and I think that’s why he’s probably the most beloved superhero universally, throughout every culture, throughout every race. … Yeah, I think so. I really do think so. And there’s also an ordinariness to Peter Parker that everyone can project themselves into as well.”
