New webmaster Garfield: Spidey's always in style

SAN DIEGO (AP) — The new Peter Parker says it's never too soon for another "Spider-Man" movie.

Andrew Garfield, who plays Peter and his superhero alter-ego in next summer's "The Amazing Spider-Man," said Friday at the Comic-Con fan convention that his take on the Marvel Comics icon is a departure from Tobey Maguire's, which concluded just four years ago after three films.

Though it's a short turn-around for a new version, lifelong Spidey fan Garfield says people need a hero such as Peter, swinging among the tall buildings of New York City. Garfield says he's already looking forward to seeing the actor who stars in the next incarnation of "Spider-Man" after him.

Sony Pictures was giving Comic-Con fans a preview of its new story about how nerdy Peter transforms into the agile crime fighter.
