Mourning the Andrew Garfield Era of Spider-Man
With the new Captain America: Civil War trailer explicitly revealing new Spider-Man Tom Holland, it's official: the Andrew Garfield era as Spider-Man is over. We first heard the announcement from Marvel in early 2015 that Spider-Man will be integrated into the Marvel universe of The Avengers — precipitating the conclusion that Garfield had slung his last web. While we're certain that Garfield will go on to bigger and better things with his career, that doesn't stop us from wanting to mourn the Garfield era of Spider-Man. While the two films in the rebooted franchise may not have pleased everyone, it was through no fault of Garfield's — a capable, sensitive performer with loads of charm. Let's remember why he was so good at Peter Parker and his superhero self as we say goodbye.
