andrew-garfield-as-spider-man-wallpaperThe Amazing Spider-Man actor Andrew Garfield has shot down suggestions he’d hinted that Peter Parker would have a boyfriend in the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man sequels.

In a statement released after his appearance at Comic-Con earlier this week, Garfield denied that pro-gay comments made in an Entertainment Weekly interview should be read into.

“Listen, what I said in the Entertainment Weekly interview was a question,” Garfield said. “It was just a simple philosophical question about sexual orientation, about prejudice. I obviously long for the time where sexual orientation and skin colour is a small thread in the fabric of a human being and all men are created equal, and women.”

He continued by saying, “It would be illogical for me in the third (Spider-Man) movie to be like, ‘You know what? I’m kind of attracted to guys.’ That’s just not going to work. It’s clear. It was just more a philosophical question.”

Looks like the cobwebs will remain in the closet for this superhero.
