Legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk broke down the scene in The Amazing Spider-Man with Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker.
The Amazing Spider-Man films starring Andrew Garfield were not as critically praised as Tom Holland’s films, but there are still revered by many, especially the first one. Back when details for Andrew Garfield’s version started to come out, one of the criticisms was that his Peter Parker was going to skateboard. This was because there are no instances in the Spider-Man comics where Peter Parker is a known skater.
However, The Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb has said in the past that one of the reasons Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker skateboards is so that swinging from webs isn’t as terrifying to him. In a recent video with GQ, Tony Hawk critiqued some famous skateboarding scenes in movies, which included Andrew Garfield’s The Amazing Spider-Man. Tony Hawk started off by saying:
“You can see that his foot is attached to his board in an unnatural way. So, definitely, his back foot right there is stuck to the board somehow, with something other than gravity. So, that’s a tell right there, where it’s like, ‘All right, we’re not in reality here.'”
Tony Hawk went on to say how dangerous it would be to have your foot stuck to the skateboard:
“He must have had the skateboard attached to the shoes. And to go around and do a backflip and be confident enough and skilled enough to know that you actually are going to land on your feet is pretty awesome. ‘Cause that’s risky. Imagine that you strapped a snowboard to your feet and someone threw you in a backflip. You gotta still kand it. And that’s what he did… But, we know it’s not real.”
