Andrew Garfield: I Needed Spidey In My Life When I Was A Kid

By  · Published on July 26th, 2011

The theatrics have almost all but gone from Comic-Con. Last year it was a genuine moment between a young fan and Ryan Reynolds delivering the Green Lantern Oath that brought down the house. This year’s biggest scene was more planned out, but it was nonetheless genuine.

Before the Amazing Spider-Man panel in Hall H, a crazed fan dressed up as Spidey rushed the Q&A microphone and started raving about the comic books to great applause.

Then he took off his mask. And there’s video.

Andy Serkis did something similar at the Tintin panel to mess with Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg. Nathan Fillion did it last year to Joss Whedon. This year, it was Andrew Garfield doing it for the fans.

You just can’t beat that. He sounds like an out-of-breath fanboy delivering a slam poem he wrote about Spidey with the same enthusiasm as anyone who was nervously counting bodies in front of them to figure out their chances of getting into Hall H.

What say you?
