Andrew Garfield has garnered a very loyal fanbase, stemming from his time portraying the role of Peter Parker / The Amazing Spider-Man.

Replacing Tobey Maguire as the web-crawling superhero, Andrew Garfield was cast as Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) before Sony Pictures elected to go in a different direction. This is when Tom Holland took over the role and made his appearance in Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe.

According to reports, Garfield will join Oscar Isaac (Moon Knight) in Guillermo Del Toro’s Frankenstein. The movie, which is based on the classic novel penned by Mary Shelley, is set to be released on Netflix. Shelley’s novel was written in 1818 and is in the public domain.

Though Universal Pictures copyrighted the image to the monster that it created with its classic films, this film will show a different version of the monster.

At this time, it hasn’t been announced what the release date of the film might be and it should be noted that Del Toro has not confirmed these casting reports.
