Spider Man - Lee Hails Garfield As 'Perfect' Spider-man

SPIDER-MAN creator STAN LEE has heaped praise on the web-slinger's latest incarnation ANDREW GARFIELD, lauding him as the "perfect" replacement for TOBEY MAGUIRE.
The British actor has been chosen to take over from Maguire, who quit the franchise last year (10) after starring in three Spider-Man movies.
The new film will be a prequel to the previous installments, and Spider-Man mastermind Lee is happy with the decision to hire 27-year-old Garfield to play Peter Parker and his superhero alter-ego.
He says, "Looks just perfect to me. How he manages to look so young, I wish he'd teach me the secret.
"If you go back to Spider-Man as a teenager and you get a different actor, it might be that the audience will accept that more readily."
