Chances are you really aren’t interested in watching America’s Got Talent when it premieres on May 14. But you probably WILL be interested in letting that shit play on in the background until they air a 4 minute super preview of The Amazing Spider-Man, starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone. It’ll be on at 8pm/7pm Central on NBC this coming Tuesday.
We’ve got a 30 second preview of the super preview below. But before we get to that… we also have snippets of an awesome interview that Tobey Maguire did with Andrew Garfield, officially passing along the Spider-Man baton. Can’t wait for July 3, guys! (Especially since I’ll have had laser eye surgery a couple of weeks before that. I just found out today and I’m super excited so excuse the gushing.)
Check out the preview, and then hit the jump for some interview tidbits!
You can check out the whole interview here. It’s definitely interesting to see the two Peter Parkers comparing their experiences and everything. Here are the two most notable moments in the interview:
Tobey Maguire: Actually, 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, Fucking perfect! […] I just want it to be great, and I thought, What a great actor Andrew is, I’m glad that’s what’s happening here.
Andrew Garfield: Peter Parker is such a positive character—he’s pure wish fulfillment, an underdog. I grew so much from him when I was a kid, from the comics all the way up to the first movie you were in. I was 19 when I saw [Spider-Man]. I got a pirated DVD at Portobello Market with my friend Terry McGuiness, and we went back to my skanky apartment in North London and we watched it twice in a row and then practiced your final line in the mirror! Terry has this thick accent and every time I would recite that line he would laugh this very distinct laugh and say, “No, man, you could never be fucking Spider-Man. You’ll never be fucking Spider-Man!” I was so humiliated and upset. But, um…fuck you, Terry!
