One of the biggest questions preceding Sony’s reboot of the Spider-Man franchise is “does the story need retelling?” Andrew Garfield has a very well reasoned response to this query in a freshly posted Comic-Con interview! Video after the jump!

It’s been almost a decade since the first release of the web slinger (true, the last installment was only four years ago, but it’ll be five by 2012 when The Amazing Spider-Man hits theaters), and fans are already questioning if it’s too soon for a full reboot of the series.

Andrew Garfield has a perfectly adequate response to this type of thinking in this interview below (courtesy of Collider via ComicBookMovie)

We think this almost guarantees another retelling 15 to 20 years from now (assuming that the sequels from this one aren’t still running).

It’s refreshing to hear that Garfield has such a personal connection with the wall crawler. Since Spider-Man has such a close place to his heart we can bet that he’ll do the role justice in The Amazing Spider-Man

    There are several reasons why the reboot was necessary: you got completely new actors so its better to retell it than to continue the story of 1-3. Also with the reboot you finally get to make a Spider-Man movie where the characters actually feel like the ones from the comics (Maguire and Dunst were totally miscast) and you can create a Spider-Man thats much closer to the comic books and does them more justice. That is more reason than I need for this reboot. Also I dont get why people keep complaining that the reboot comes too early. It comes 5 years after the last movie. Batman was rebooted in 2005 that is 6 years after the last film (Batman and Robin,1999). Still nobody complains there. Which is more than a little hypocritical.

      I totally agree, I see no difference between this and what WB is doing with Nolan’s Batman. I’m excited for this adaptation!

        I personally feel they should have done a Spider-Man 4 or left it alone. Spider-Man 3 was horrible – and thats coming off the last 2 which were really good, the 2nd being the best. I personally don’t think they should have done a Spider-Man 4, but a reboot is totally unnecessary.
