While on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week, Andrew Garfield revealed that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will begin production in February.
He also spoke with E! News about the sequel, in which he said he is getting a redesigned costume.
While at the Worldwide Orphans event last night in New york City, he said: "The suit is undergoing a redesign because I couldn't urinate in it last time. So I'm less nervous 'cause that's gonna be nice."
He also said he's less nervous since the first film has earned $752 million worldwide and proved it was possible to make a successful reboot five years after the last film with Tobey Maguire. He added: "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. 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."
Pre-production is currently going on, with Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) in talks to join the cast.
Garfield would not comment on rumors that Jamie Foxx is going to play Electro, but he did say he takes his responsibilities of the role seriously. He said: "It is a responsibility to play that role, and I don't take it lightly. I think there's so much to explore with that mythology and within the tension between living a double life, struggling with being good, struggling with choosing good behavior over bad behavior, with the pressures of a city on your shoulders."
