Andrew Garfield is "really excited" Tom Holland has replaced him as Spider-Man.
The 32-year-old actor starred in two 'Spider-Man' movies, in 2012 and 2014 before being axed earlier this year - but Andrew has insisted he harbours no bitterness and is looking forward to watching Tom, 19, in action.
He told Total Film magazine: "To be honest, I am really excited that he is going is to be playing the part.
"I think he's perfect for it. I'm really happy and glad - and I really mean that - because I get to be a fan again.
"I can buy popcorn and watch, and that makes me really, really happy."
This comes shortly after Kevin Feige, the President of Marvel Studios, admitted the rebooted 'Spider-Man' will be inspired by the work of director John Hughes, who helmed 'The Breakfast Club' and 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off'.
Looking forward to the new movie, Kevin said: "It's the soap opera in high school, and those supporting characters, that are interesting.
"Just as we hadn't seen a heist movie in a long time, or a shrinking movie in a long time, we haven't seen a John Hughes movie in a long time.
"Not that we can make a John Hughes movie - only John Hughes could - but we're inspired by him, and merging that with the superhero genre in a way we haven't done before excites us."
