Andrew Garfield wants to replace Peter Parker with Miles Morales.
The 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' actor says it would be an "important move" for the web-yielding superhero to "pass on the torch" to his Black-Hispanic counterpart, who features as the alternate-reality hero in the 'Ultimate Spider-Man' comic book series after the death of Marvel's version of Parker.
He told Comic Book Resources: "Miles Morales was a huge moment in this character's comic book life. And I do believe that we can do that. It's something I'm really interested in figuring out; an eloquent way of co-existing, or passing on the torch. I don't have an answer, but I think it's actually a really important move. I think it's a really beautiful and important move."
Garfield claims the transition from Parker to Morales will make a natural ending for when he finally decides to retire from the role, following reports that Sony Pictures are planning to release a Spider-Man-related film every year.
He continued: "I want it to feel like a circle. I want the two ends to join, somehow. I don't know what that means, yet. I don't know what that means in terms of the quantity of Spider-Man movies I do. But I know that I don't particularly want to be a 40-year-old Spider-Man. I do know that time is fleeting."
The 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' is screening in UK cinemas now and will debut in the US on May 2.
