That item came from The Ellen DeGeneres Show, but the actor also spoke to E! this week, where he talked a bit about what he hopes to see in Amazing Spidey 2.
"I feel really excited. I feel like we got over a hump with our first one. We had to reinstate the character, and we had to reinvigorate an audience to the character. And I hope to bring more of this theme -- the theme of the orphan," he said. "I wanna keep exploring that theme of being fatherless, being motherless, searching for purpose and finding a purpose within himself, being a self-made man, I guess."
Garfield also commented on director Marc Webb's recent hints that the Spider-Man suit will be reconfigured to have "bigger eyes" and "gnarly web shooters."
"The suit is undergoing a redesign because I couldn't urinate in it last time," he joked. "So I'm less nervous 'cause that's gonna be nice."
Hey, whatever you need to do. Emma Stone and Shailene Woodley will also appear in the film as Gwen Stacy and Mary Jane Watson, respectively, while Jamie Foxx is rumored to be playing the villain Electro for a May 2, 2014, release.
