Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man costume gets a makeover

Andrew Garfield's skin-tight Spider-Man costume has been redesigned so he can take bathroom breaks while shooting the sequel.

The British actor struggled to climb out of his superhero suit while filming this year's (12) hit blockbuster The Amazing Spider-Man, but he is hoping trips to the toilet will be a little less stressful on the set of the next movie.


He tells E! Online, "The suit is undergoing a redesign because I couldn't urinate in it last time. So I'm less nervous 'cause that's gonna be nice."


Garfield is currently in pre-production but admits he can't wait to swing back into action when filming on the follow-up begins next year (13).


He says, "I feel really excited. I feel like we got over a hump with our first one. We had to reinstate the character, and we had to reinvigorate an audience to the character... It is a responsibility to play that role, and I don't take it lightly.


"I think there's so much to explore with that mythology and within the tension between living a double life, struggling with being good, struggling with choosing good behaviour over bad behaviour, with the pressures of a city on your shoulders."


The sequel is due to hit theatres in 2014.
