Move over Magic Mike and Ted, The Amazing Spider-Man is this summer’s mega blockbuster! The superhero movie broke box office records, pulling in $35 million in its first day—the highest Tuesday debut since the Transformers in 2007, THR reports. We have to wonder if part of the movie’s appeal is the humble, handsome, relatable star Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker, who has a bit of a superhero quality himself. When we asked him what superpower he would want at an event supporting Worldwide Orphans Foundation (he is the Sports Ambassador) he answered “teleportation.” Why? “In terms of being generous and making a difference, it would be very useful to be in many different places at once because the world is in great need of help,” Garfield explained. Now that’s a heroic thought, no web-weaving needed!
