Andrew Garfield may not be the first cutie to don the all-powerful Spider-Man costume, but he’s definitely the first to use it as a man-magnet.
The easily excitable The Amazing Spider-Man 2 actor told EW this week that he has often had “philosophical discussions” with the film’s producer, Matt Tolmach, about exploring the character’s sexuality on film. “I was kind of joking, but kind of not joking about MJ,” he says. “What if MJ is a dude? Why can’t we discover that Peter is exploring his sexuality? It’s hardly even groundbreaking! So why can’t he be gay? Why can’t he be into boys.”
To which we say “he can!” He’s been gay in our fantasies since before you were born, Mr. Garfield, and we fully approve of you making out with other men in or out of costume.
Garfield is gunning for a gay makeout sesh so badly that he’s already chosen an actor to play his onscreen beau. “I’ve been obsessed with Michael B. Jordan since The Wire,” he said. “He’s so charismatic and talented. It’d be even better—we’d have interracial bisexuality!”
