Andrew Garfield got up close and personal with his crew while filming scenes for the fourth Spiderman movie.

The Brit, who broke out last year in The Social Network and the Keira Knightley thriller Never Let Me Go, practiced stunts in Los Angeles. He spoke to Details Magazine recently about playing the iconic role. "I see it as a massive challenge in many ways to make it authentic," he said. "To make the character live and breathe in a new way. The audience already has a relationship with many different incarnations of the character. I do, as well."

Garfield replaces Tobey McGuire, who played Spidey in the first three films. Emma Stone will play his love interest Gwen Stacy, in place of Kirsten Dunst, who played Mary Jane Watson prior. Also in the movie, which will be released in the summer of 2012, are Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen and Sally Field. —ISHITA SINGH
