Andrew Garfield: ‘Why Can’t Spider-Man Be Gay?’


Andrew Garfield tells EW that he has had a discussion with the producers of Spider-Man about Peter Parker's sexuality:

"‘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? … I’ve been obsessed with Michael B. Jordan since The Wire. He’s so charismatic and talented. It’d be even better—we’d have interracial bisexuality!”
