The New Spider-Man Might Need to Keep His Day Job

The New Spider-Man Might Need to Keep His Day Job-photo

Apparently, not everyone is scoring a massive payday in Hollywood these days.

Andrew Garfield, the British actor who was recently tapped to star in the reboot of the Spider-Man movie franchise, will reportedly only receive $500,000 for the first installment of the comic-book movie franchise—not bad at all for us mere mortals, and perhaps not too shabby for a relative unknown, but a fairly paltry sum compared to what his predecessor, Tobey Maguire, received.

By contrast, Maguire was paid $4 million for his first portrayal of the web-slinger, reportedly raked in $17.5 million plus a 5% back-end percentage for Spider-Man 2, and was supposedly offered another $20 mil, plus a back-end percentage, for the fourth installment before Sony decided to start from scratch with the series. Ouch.

On the bright side, Garfield will receive $1 million for his second Spidey flick, and $2 million for the third. Assuming that the fickle powers that be in Hollywood don't replace him first.

In the meantime, maybe Garfield can supplement his income by doing kids' parties in his Spider-Man costume?

    Andrew Garfield is the new Spider-Man marvelously slinging webs for director Marc Webb shooting in MARVEL 3D, SPIDER-MAN Reboot 2012 slinging webs in theaters near you on July 3, 2012. We enjoyed Andrew Garfield as Anton in the Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus written and directed by Terry Gilliam. Starring Oscar winning actor honorably departed, Heath Ledger as Tony. Three time Oscar winner Johnny Depp as Tony 1, Oscar winning actor Jude Law as Tony 2, actor Colin Farrell as Tony 3, living legion 2009 Oscar winner Christopher Plummer as Doctor Parnassus Farewell to actor Tobey Maguire and director Sam Raimi, together with producer Avi Arad created the best superhero movies of all time SPIDER-MAN 1 2 3. Special acknowledgements to lovely Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane Watson spidey’s second love, and Bryce Dallas Howard as Gwen Stacy spidey’s first love these actresses are beautiful, talented and intelligent. Andrew Garfield and Mark Webb of Spider-Man 4 pursue a replacement for character Gwen Stacy, Peter Parkers first love interest. Who will it be Emma Roberts, Teresa Palmer, Imogen Poots, Ophelia Lovibond, Lily Collins or Elizabeth Winstead all beautiful, young and talented actresses. SPIDER-MAN Reboot 2012 will be amazingly spectacularly great. Surfing at Future’s Break in front of the St. Regis Princeville, Kauai throughout the late fall, winter, and early springtime. Pacific Ocean swells, surf and current are strong, mighty and fierce so are early morning stand up paddle surfers Carl Hoglund, Terry Chung, Laird Hamilton and Pierce. Foil boarders and tow in surfers with their wave runner partners, surfers riding guns, short and long boarders all are experienced watermen riding mountainous swells. Surfers with surfboards riding pipe, deep into the barrel, stoked, carving left and styling right, out the back door of the giant surf, then starting all over again this is their turf. Stylized these surfers carve, tear, rip, and cut with style thru crystal clear walls of glass. Riding down steep clean faces as the rising massive walls of water crash beneath lies the shallowest of dark, razor sharp, rock hard, reef hearing how they tear doesn’t this make you want to clinch you’re teeth? In deep dark caves black tip reef sharks, hammerheads, barracuda and moray ells hunt, eat, and then sleep. Poisonous red and black spiny sea urchins creep. Portuguese man of war are blue bubbles that float on top of the ocean having long tentacles that wrap around an arm or leg then sting, box jelly fish stings scar the skin leaving tentacles behind oh my! Beautiful bouquets of white coral are sharp, leaving tiger claw marks on the skin of surfers who go over the falls, sinking deep beneath hitting the coral reef. Many shapes of mollusks stick to the reef along with iridescent blue and green fauna form this mean living reef. Watermen who ride these giant mountains of blue Pacific Ocean are Carl Hoglund, Terry Chung and Laird Hamilton the most experienced of watermen in constant motion spending their mornings at Futures Break in front of St. Regis Princeville, Kauai during the bountiful swells of wintertime. Courageous, brave and mighty surfers enjoy this sport in the most hazardous conditions of the wintertime. All the best to Andrew Garfield, Marc Webb and Avi Arad they select the best actress for the amazingly, spectacularly, great SPIDER-MAN Reboot 2012, who will be Peter Parkers first love Gwen Stacy? May the best actress for this important role win with a grin, be on time, spinning stylized webs for director Marc Webb!

    "and was supposedly offered another $20 mil, plus a back-end percentage, for the third installment before Sony decided to start from scratch with the series" There was a third Spiderman movie starring Maguire. You must have missed it. It was called "Spiderman 3" I'd wager a lot of people wished they had missed Spider-Man 3.
