Just a day after their big New York premiere on Thursday, Andrew Garfield and his Amazing Spider-Man 2 co-stars were mobbed at a school in Queens when they came to talk about the summer tentpole and help give back to the community. Watch all the fun highlights!
"This is what Spider-Man's about for me," Andrew tells ET's Rob Marciano. "It's great that we make a movie, but unless that movie touches people, there's no point. I think that this is an example of what Spider-Man the character stands for. He stands for what these kids are standing for, which is protection, love, support, community, helping the underdog, helping civilians, being a hero in your community, no matter how ordinary you are."
The Friday event was part of the film's "Be Amazing" campaign to give back, partnered with a Grow NYC event with I.S. 145 Joseph Pulitzer School students who planted flowers in garden beds along the street entrance to their school.
We've all known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead. It’s great to be Spider-Man (Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 swings into theaters May 2.
