"I am terrified to take on this role because it means so much to me, so I know how much it means to other people," Reuters quotes Garfield as saying.

He also revealed that he turned to Joseph Szabo's photography book Teenage to inspire his portrayal of angst-filled Spider-Man.

"It's tongue on tongue. It's just head out the window - that need to express, that need to kick the walls down irrationally - which when you combine that with being a superhero, that is kind of exciting," he said.

Garfield previously expressed hopes that Spider-Man will appear in the upcoming Avengers sequel. Amazing Spider-Man producer Avi Arad has since hinted that a crossover is possible.

The Amazing Spider-Man opens in cinemas on July 3.
