Actor Andrew Garfield pointed to his reading of Joseph Campbell while preparing to play Spider-Man in a recent article by US Magazine. The article states: “I’d been reading the mythologists, Joseph Campbell and James Hillman,” Garfield told The Guardian in December 2016. “And when I took on Spider-Man, I thought, ‘Holy s—t! This is exquisite and terrifying and incredible. I have been given the responsibility of reaching my hand out from the big screen and putting it on [young boys’] shoulders. That is a gift for me and a big burden to carry. And I’m so up for it.” To read the complete article on Garfield in US Magazine, click here.
