Spider-Man is now a part of the MCU, and his first MCU standalone film “Spider-Man: Homecoming” is set to be released in 2017. Fans are thrilled that Spidey now exists in a world that he can share with characters such as Iron Man and Captain America, but unfortunately for Andrew Garfield Spider-Man’s integration into the MCU came at the expense of his career as Spider-Man.
Despite the fact that Andrew Garfield was relieved of his friendly neighborhood Spider-Man duties, he’s been very supportive of Tom Holland taking over the role. The first official trailer for “Spider-Man: Homecoming” was recently released, and Garfield made it clear that he’s excited for the film.
“I watched it, it’s great. I think it looks great, I’m really excited to see it,” Garfield told ET. “I’m just a big fan of Tom and that character, so I just can’t wait to see it.”

Andrew Garfield has had nothing but good things to say about Tom Holland, but unfortunately for him his run as Spider-Man didn’t exactly go as well as he had hoped. During a recent interview with Variety he noted that “The Amazing Spider-Man” films taught him that story and characters aren’t always at the “top of the priority list.”
“I signed up to serve the story, and to serve this incredible character that I’ve been dressing as since I was three, and then it gets compromised and it breaks your heart,” Garfield said. “I got heartbroken a little bit to a certain degree.”
“Spider-Man: Homecoming” swings into theaters on July 7, 2017.
