Like most young boys, Andrew Garfield grew up idolizing Spider-Man, so he was obviously thrilled when he got the opportunity to play the spidey-skilled superhero on the big screen.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Garfield discussed a philosophical conversation he recently had with producer, Matt Tolmach, about Spider-Man’s love interest Mary Jane, also known as MJ.
“I was kind of joking, but kind of not joking about MJ. I was like, ‘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?”
Garfield even admitted to a guy-crush of his own!
“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!”
I see a possible three-some in Garfield’s future; let’s hope Emma is open to it!
