Andrew Garfield has revealed that he studied the behaviour of spiders in preparation for his leading role in The Amazing Spider-Man.
The British star takes the place of Tobey Maguire in the reboot of the Marvel franchise.
He told the Los Angeles Times: "I studied their movements and how they operate in the world and I tried to incorporate as much of that as I could. He's a boy/spider in terms of how he moves and not just in the suit.
"A spider moves up, down, side-to-side, all around. He's not linear and with the knowledge of that spatial awareness and the fact that he can be here and then over there incredibly fast. The stillness of a spider and the lightness... I found all of that very interesting to explore as well."
The 28-year-old continued: "That's the thing with the spider sense and the way he takes in everything. Imagine all of your skin was as sensitive as a spider, the slightest gust of wind would feel like a tornado going by.
"You'd always be rushing, that rush. What does that do to you? The idea of how he adjusts to that."
The Amazing Spider-Man is released on July 3, 2012.
