Fans hoping to see Andrew Garfield portray Spider-Man again are going to be disappointed. The actor, who starred in the 2012 movie "The Amazing Spider-Man" and its 2014 sequel, told IndieWire that the expectations associated with the role were too much for him.

"The pressure to get it right, to please everyone . . . it's not going to happen," Garfield, 32, said of ever donning Spidey's suit again. "You end up pleasing no one, or everyone just a little bit. Like 'Eh, that was good.' "

Garfield added that he would still be "up for the challenge" of playing a character like Spider-Man again, but he's more interested in projects where you're "trying to infuse it [the movie] with soul, trying to make it unique, something that was worth the price of entry."

The actor will next be seen with Michael Shannon and Laura Dern in the Sept. 25 release "99 Homes," about a family who get evicted from their home.
