But now that filming for the rebooted Spider-Man flick is almost a wrap, we couldn't help wondering how the Social Network star did as the web-slinging superhero.
So will Spider-Man veteran and former star of the film's franchise Tobey Maguire be proud of Garfield's take on the role...
"Yes he will!" Spidey starlet Kelsey Chow assured us last night when we chatted at Us Weekly's Hot Hollywood party in Hollywood. "I was absolutely blown away by Andrew Garfield. He's insanely talented and a really wonderful person. And Marc Webb as well is an amazing director, so I think you guys will definitely be pleased."
As for how Garfield brought his own Amazing-ness to the part?
"I think he also brings a level of, you know, being relatable," says the One Tree Hill and Pair of Kings actress, "and what he's doing with the character in itself, he's really bringing his own to the character, which I think definitely puts a different spin on it."
And we must say, we're pretty jealous of Miss Chow's role in the highly-anticipated film.
"I play a girl who hits on Peter Parker," she smiled. "I'm a lucky girl."
