In a video interview with BBC News British actor Andrew Garfield was asked about getting Tobey Maguire's blessing in taking the Spidey job and what it's been like to film in 3D.
On Tobey Maguire:
"I've never met him. He sent me a lovely message through a mutual firend. He gave me his support and it meant a great deal of course because a part of the reason I loved this character was because of his portrayal. So to step into those shoes is no mean feat. It was generous of him to reach out and say something, so I'm thankful."
Shooting in 3D is different?:
"Luckily nothing really. I don't ever watch playback or ever go to the monitors and watch what I've done because I get very self conscious. I like to not know what my eyebrows are doing or the stupid thing my nostril is doing or whatever. The difference is is that the monitor is 3D so you've got the director and the producer and the writer there with their silly glasses watching the scene play out in 3D."
