Andrew Garfield has joked he was so happy about getting the Spider-Man role that he ran around naked. The British actor has replaced Tobey Maguire in the next installment of the franchise, titled The Amazing Spider-Man, and said he was overwhelmed when he found out he had been picked. Talking to Contact Music, he joked: "I just blacked out and ran around naked for a while or something. Ha! I tried to climb walls and stuff and broke my wrist - no, not really. I never expected to get it because it's something that you dream about when you're four years old and how often does reality match up with a dream. Never, but I've been very, very lucky. You never think you're going to get a chance to portray a symbol that has meant so much to you since you were old enough to understand the concept of justice. It's just an incredible thing. I've been very lucky and if I analyse it too much it freaks me out. I'm an actor and I love being an actor and it's very difficult to be a working actor, whether it's work that you're proud of or not."
