This summer, Andrew Garfield -- probably best known for playing Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin in "The Social Network" -- will try to recreate the success of Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man trilogy in a new reboot. While he may not have the public's full support yet, his predecessor has a good feeling about "The Amazing Spider-Man." Maguire says Garfield is "f------ perfect" for the job, and you can't receive much higher praise than that.

Maguire actually interviewed Garfield for VMan Magazine, and told the new Spidey, "When it was coming together, I was particularly excited at two moments. One was when [director] Marc Webb got involved. I think he's an interesting and cool choice. And then I was certainly curious as to who was going to play Peter Parker. When I heard it was you, I was literally like, 'F------ perfect!'" The movie comes out June 30. Do you think Andrew Garfield can pull it off?

    They both bring a different side to Peter Parker, but Garfield's is darker, intimidating, and doesn't feel as likeable as Maguire. To me, Peter Parker will always be Maguire.

    Andrew is better and acts better and has more of a personality that fits Peter Parker. Only thing that tobey has that's better is he was a little more buff that the new one

    Tobey is quirkier, cuter and more Peter Parker than Garfield will ever be, why do people find Garfield fit?

    Too soon for a reboot. Just saw it and enjoyed it, but I prefer the trilogy. Tobey IS Peter.

    Andrew Garfield my 100% approval for looking like Peter Parker, and from what we've seen so far.....portraying the best live action Peter Parker and Spider-Man to date.... I have all my faith saying he will do a fantastic job.

    Probably better for the job that Toby was, to begin with. Toby was "ok"...but it seemed like he made the character a very limited one. Not that he couldn't act. Not that he wasn't good. But, I think he took it as far as he probably was ever going to. We will see.

    How many different artists have drawn Spider-Man, and in how many different comic titles? I just consider it like I used to think about the comics when I was a kid. The new artist has a different style, but it's still about Spider-Man. If the kid can act, then he's got the job. Let Tobey Maguire do what he thinks is best for him and let's not pigeonhole him into one part. I say if this kid's got the chops, he's got the chops, and if he doesn't then he doesn't. I'll let the movie prove it, and I'll watch it with as little preconception as possible so I can enjoy it all the more.

    Oh, and did I mention how many people have played Batman through the years? I still think of Adam West as Batman, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying any of them from Michael Keaton to Christian Bale and everyone between. Sorry guys, I can't remember EVERYONE that's done it, but I've enjoyed them all...

    From what I've seen of the trailers, I think he'll actually do a better job than Maguire, who way overplayed the wussy, dorky Peter and almost completely ignored Spidey's wisecracking smartassery.

    I think andrew garfield is a good actor, if you've seen the rest of his films you know what i'm talking about. He seems like he'd be better at acting out and portraying spiderman than toby...and plus, he does an excellent american accent for a guy with a british one :)

    I have mixed feelings about this movie. So far the only reason I want to see it is for Emma Stone and Emma Stone alone. I really only prefer Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man, but I suppose I'll give this one a chance. Can't compare two things properly if you've only seen one of the two.

    There should be an undecided here... cuz I am undecided about this... First off, Toby M. basically has to say yes he approves of this to show 1. to be a good sportman about it.. 2.. Him and Kristen D. both said that they would not do anymore Spiderman movies after the last one.. So they basically killed it from there.. and to bring in 2 new people at that stage of the game would of been the death of the series... Thus doing a reboot from the beginning or later in life is the only way to go.. And unfortunately, in this case as in many other cases this kind of reboot doesn't always work to well.. So the real question is going to be answered after it's opening weekend..

    From what I can tell of the trailers, this movie looks awesome. The classic smart mouth is back and so are the web shooters. It also looks like it is a little darker than the previous series which is a plus. Focusing more on how hard it actually is to be Spider-man instead of how much Spider-man affects Peter Parker's regular life. That was a little overplayed in the previous series, and the action (looking back now that Marvel has released some great action movies with other characters) looks a little kiddish. All around, it looks awesome.

    I'm actually looking forward to it, but I'll also be treating it as a different universe. Sort of like with the comics themselves.
