Andrew Garfield: ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Tells A ‘Brave And Important’ Story

The 'Spider-Man' star talks about 'bringing a fresh mix' to superhero movies with the 'Amazing' sequel.

In one week, the whole world will have “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ at its fingertips. Even now, many people across the planet have already seen the superhero sequel, thanks to its early international release.

Many of the fans who haven’t seen the film yet can smell danger in the air. The collective consciousness’ spider-sense is tingling. Something big and bold is about to happen in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” thanks to the electric combination of Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx and the other all-star actors.

For now, the cast and crew involved in the “Amazing Spider-Man” sequel are keeping their lips sealed on the specifics. But star Andrew Garfield, without delving into spoiler territory, made it clear that he’s very excited about what happens in his second film as the web-slinging hero.

“It’s a big story,” he told MTV News at the “Amazing Spider-Man 2″ New York City premiere. “I’m glad we did it. It’s brave and it’s important.”

Did what, Andrew? What’s so brave and important? What are you driving at? The actor, to his credit, kept those secrets firmly in the bag.

“You don’t want people to know, walking in, what they’re going to be experiencing, as much as possible,” he teased. “We’re not in the age anymore where ‘The Sixth Sense’ can come out and people don’t know that, in fact, Bruce Willis has been dead the whole time.”

He winced: “Sorry if I ruined ‘The Sixth Sense’ for you. Case in point, my big mouth!”

Whatever it is that’s coming up, Garfield is very proud of the work that he and his collaborators accomplished in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.”

“We have to keep pushing the envelope with these movies,” he said. “You know, we’ve seen a lot of these [superhero] movies come out recently. We want to make sure we’re bringing a fresh mix to the audience.”

“The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ swings into theaters on May 2.
