Interactions with Fans & Fandom
Garfield has shown support for LGBT representation in media.
He may support romantic readings of the Eduardo Saverin/Mark Zuckerberg relationship.
“I think with Mark, up until the end, Eduardo’s hoping at some point Mark’s going to go, ‘Look, I’m really, really sorry, man. I really messed up. I love you so much, and I just was jealous of you for this. And I acted out like this. Can we be friends again? I’ll give you back as much money as you want. Let’s move in together and we’ll play basketball every day, and we’ll cuddle at night and watch reality TV.’ Part of Eduardo in those depositions is just waiting for that moment.” -- Andrew Garfield; the quote on the mark_eduardo community profile
In July 2013, Garfield suggested that Peter Parker could be bisexual and have a romance with a male MJ.
Recently, he says, he had a philosophical discussion with producer Matt Tolmach about Mary Jane or “MJ” to fans. “I was kind of joking, but kind of not joking about MJ,” he tells EW. “And I was like, ‘What if MJ is a dude?’ Why can’t we discover that Peter is exploring his sexuality? It’s hardly even groundbreaking!…So why can’t he be gay? Why can’t he be into boys?”
Garfield even has an actor in mind: “I’ve been obsessed with Michael B. Jordan since The Wire. He’s so charismatic and talented. It’d be even better—we’d have interracial bisexuality!” The star has clearly suggested a sexually flexible Spidey to his director, Marc Webb, as well. When EW later mentions the idea to Webb, the director says, “Michael B. Jordan, I know.” Oh, so he’s heard this too? “Uh, are you kidding?”--Andrew Garfield on Spider-Man's sexuality: 'Why can't he be gay?'
A post by beachdeath, while containing a fair amount of theorization, covers Garfield's advocacy for bisexual Spider-Man, his ousting from the role, Sony and Marvel's licensing agreement requiring that Peter Parker be portrayed as heterosexual and white, and Garfield's comments as recently as 2017 about his regrets regarding missed opportunities for representation.
