Actor Andrew Garfield has revealed he loves the superhero fancy dress he will be wearing for the forthcoming Spiderman movie.

The 27-year-old takes over from Tobey Maguire to play geeky Peter Parker in the prequel to the first three films and he told People he is a fan of the revamped outfit.

Commenting on putting it on for the first time, he said: "It was humbling and strange and I was really moved by it … It was just a strange, surreal moment."

Garfield also said he is very impressed by his costar Gwen Stacy, who plays Peter's girlfriend before Mary Jane, gushing that she is "impossible to dream up", as well as being talented and beautiful.

The first pictures of the new Spiderman fancy dress were revealed earlier this month and Rick Marshall from MTV noted the subtle differences, including longer gloves that have more silver and new web-shooters on his wrists.
