Will British actor Andrew Garfield make a good Peter Parker/Spider-Man in Sony's upcoming reboot of the Spider-Man franchise? Filmmaker David Fincher talked with MTV News about the casting while promoting the animated comic book adaptation The Goon, and he doesn't seem completely sold on the idea. "I can't imagine him in spandex," he confessed while shrugging. "I can't imagine him being comfortable. He's a wonderful actor, he's incredibly skillful and empathic and a lovely guy. So it's nice to see that."

But Fincher, who worked with Garfield on the upcoming Facebook origins movie The Social Network, says the reboot overall is "risky," noting that they didn't get a "conventional" director -- (500) Days of Summer's Marc Webb is helming the next installment -- and are going at it in a new way. Which he doesn't see as a bad thing. "They're rolling the dice. I think that's always exciting." Just not enough for him to be the one on board. Fincher admits to having met with Sony about doing Spider-Man 4 but "easily" got himself out of doing it because he just can't buy into the whole "getting bit by a radioactive spider" thing.
