Is Andrew Garfield the next big Hollywood star?

The Amazing Spiderman

Andrew Garfield is making his epic debut in 'The Amazing Spider-man' this week, and after 5 years since 'Spider-man 3', the stakes have never been so high.

Following the personal journey of Peter Parker and his quest to discover why his parents disappeared when he was young, 'The Amazing Spider-man' defines a new beginning for Andrew Garfield. His last major performance was in David Fincher's 'The Social Network', which garnered critical acclaim but until now we never saw him lead in a Hollywood blockbuster.

For American audiences, Garfield is not a leading man, but 'The Amazing Spider-man' will make him a big star. The fan base and the expectations of Spider-man have always been high, but finding a replacement for Tobey Maguire in the new 4th film could not have been more difficult.

With a background in theatre, Andrew Garfield has made his mark on the stage receiving praise for his performances and ability to capture the depth of characters that he interprets. His 2005 TV debut in Channel 4's 'Sugar Rush' would give him new opportunity, and soon Hollywood took note.

Now with just 6 days to go, can Garfield capture American and British audiences with his interpretation of Spidey in 'The Amazing Spider-man'?
