Tom Holland isn't the only actor to rock a Spidey suit in 2016. Former Spider-Man Andrew Garfield, who played the wall-crawler in 2012's "Amazing Spider-Man" and 2014's "Amazing Spider-Man 2," put on a store bought version of Spidey's suit for a quick bit on "Jimmy Kimmel Live." You can see the video below, which shows Garfield working Hollywood Boulevard for tips as a costumed superhero.

Garfield also briefly spoke about Spider-Man in his appearance on Kimmel's late night talk show. When asked about the last time he wore Spider-Man's super suit, Garfield had a joke ready. "It was last night -- no, two nights ago, like, my teeth brushing ritual that's just a comfort thing," joked Garfield. "Just kind of keeping the flame burning as long as I possibly can."
But Garfield seemingly has no ill will towards recent developments, which saw Spider-Man rebooted into Marvel's movie-verse under a new partnership between Sony and Marvel Studios. Marvel's new Spider-Man, played by Tom Holland, debuted earlier this year in "Captain America: Civil War."
Garfield recently spoke about his feelings towards the reboot. “If I am being totally honest, I am so excited Spider-Man is back in the hands of Marvel,” said Garfield. “I think that’s a really awesome move. It was a move that I’ve been advocating since I was offered the Spider-Man gig five or six years ago. I’m also excited for Tom Holland. I think he’s a very emotional, truthful, funny, physical actor, and I love the filmmaker — it all really couldn’t be in any better hands. I’m really stoked for it.”
In fact, Holland taking over the webs meant that Garfield was able to work with big name directors. “To be honest, I would not have been able to work with Mel Gibson and Martin Scorsese if I had done ‘Spider-Man 3,'” said Garfield, who was directed by Gibson in “Hacksaw Ridge” and Scorsese in “Silence.” “I’m incredibly grateful that I get to now go and watch another man play Spider-Man who I think is a fantastic actor in Tom Holland.”
Garfield can next be seen in the World War II film "Hacksaw Ridge," which was directed by Mel Gibson and also stars Vince Vaughn, Teresa Palmer, Sam Worthington and Hugo Weaving. "Hacksaw Ridge" opens on November 4.
Marvel's next Spider-Man film, titled "Spider-Man: Homecoming," swings into theaters on July 7, 2017.
