As dates go, this guy's a real swinger.
In an interview with Time Out London, Andrew Garfield reveals that, besides having the heightened senses and powers of a spider, his character in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is Jewish.
"Peter Parker is not a simple dude," Garfield explains. "He ums and ahs about his future because he's neurotic. It's a defining feature."
Garfield, whose father is Jewish, added that he was including himself in his assessment: "I have that in me, for sure."

Spider-Man has saved the day for a Cleveland bride.
Richard Schaen, whose daughter Jane is getting married in two weeks, was worried about the cost of the wedding until he remembered a pile of old comic books he'd stored in a strongbox.
Inside the dusty box the 69-year-old found a copy of Amazing Spider-Man No. 1, which he'd bought for 12 cents when it came out in March 1963.
He listed the comic for sale online and was delighted when it sold for $7,900 – if it had been in pristine condition, it could have sold for up to four times that amount.
