What are the down sides of wearing the Spider-Man costume?
In the film there are some jokes about it but it is NOT itchy! I like wearing it when I'm doing the scenes because it gives me the freedom to be Spider-Man - it's great! I get to be a kid and play Spider-Man.
Sitting around in it feels a little goofy! You're just sitting around in this Spider-Man costume!
Do you wear it at lunch?
You can't eat through the mask!
Can't you take the mask off?
Well, you gotta take the whole thing off. It's not like it looks - it's all one-piece. We have different versions when I have to take the hood off.
But they zip me in up back. I can't get out of it by myself. Sometimes the zippers break and they have to sew me into the suit!
There were lots of stories about you having a bad back when filming started.
My back was just irritating me prior to the film. I was a little concerned. I made everyone aware 'cos I thought it was my responsibility to tell everyone. Just to be on the safe side.
I worked with the stunt guys to make sure I was gonna be strong, and healthy and good to do it. I felt good about it and confident. We were fine during production.
Is it true your little brothers are in the film?
They are in the movie yeah.
How did that come about?
I know some people and I thought they were actually really good - they were there when me and the director were chatting about it and I said I'd love for them to be in it.
But I said I only wanted them to do it if they were gonna end up in the film - I didn't to disappoint them if they worked on it and then got cut out of the movie or something. But it was a blast, it was fun!
