How Much Will Andrew Garfield Get Paid For Spider-Man?
by Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero on
Apparently, not very much.
Garfield does share a resemblance to the old Steve Ditko drawings of Peter Parker and we do have to assume that Sony would make the best decision for their big money-making franchise, I couldn't help but wonder if money played part of it.
Deadline New York reported that Garfield is only getting paid $500,000 for playing the web-slinger. The good news (maybe) for Garfield is he'll then get paid $1 million for a second Spider-Man film and $2 million for a third. It doesn't seem like very much when you consider that Spider-Man 3 had a $258 million dollar budget and this one apparently just has a budget of $80 million. Could that be right? If so, $500,000 makes some sense. It may not be much, but being in the spider-spotlight will definitely open some doors for Garfield.
Would you play the role for $500,000?
