Wow, two crotchgates in one day. It seems that Andrew Garfield, who will appear as Spider-Man in the new film which opens on July 3rd, had to learn the hard way that superhero costumes aren’t that practical in real life. It turns out that obliging certain natural functions was not that easy in his Spidey suit.
“We’re going to make it easier for me to piss. That’s number one,” he said with a laugh. “They didn’t really consider that, the whole bodily functions thing. But next time we will remember that I’m human.”
It turns out that the suit design was his only major complaint.
“You have to body shoehorn yourself out of it. It’s stupid, but it looks good,” he said. When asked if there was any other element that he’d like to change, Garfield said, “Probably, probably, probably… that’s pretty much it.”
Perhaps this makes the appearance of Cyclops’ flame thong more understandable? As a portal to bathroom relief it may make a lot of sense.
All of which shows, this package design is not so easy.
