Andrew Garfield is quickly approaching Joseph Gordon-Levitt levels of adorable man coolness. With fairly large praise being thrown his way for films like the upcoming NEVER LET ME GO and massive anticipation for his role in THE SOCIAL NETWORK, Garfield is a force to be reckoned with.

When it was first announced that he would play Spider-Man in Marc Webb's 3D reboot, everyone began to take note. Now, it seems, Garfield couldn't be more excited to play his childhood hero.

Garfield sat down with the good folks over at The Hollywood Reporter to give his thoughts on SPIDER-MAN:

"I have been waiting for this phone call for 24 years, for someone to call me up and say, 'Hey, we want you to pretend to be a character that you’ve always wanted to be all your life, and we’re going to do it with cool cameras and cool effects and you’re going to feel like you’re swinging through New York City. Do you want to do that?' 'Let me just consult with my seven-year old self and see what he thinks...'"

Garfield then hopped into a DeLorean and returned several minutes later with more to say:

"Like every young boy who feels stronger on the inside than they look on the outside, any skinny boy basically who wishes their muscles matched their sense of injustice, God, it’s just the stuff that dreams are made of, for sure. It’s a true fucking honor to be part of this symbol that I actually think is a very important symbol and it’s meant a great deal to me, and it continues to mean something to people."

Garfield's enthusiasm for the project makes me feel even more comfortable with the reboot. I cannot wait to see more from the 3D take on the rebooted SPIDER-MAN, as it starts filming this December.
