Andrew Garfield wants gay Spider-Man

London: Actor Andrew Garfield has revealed that he would like Peter Parker to be revealed as bisexual in the next Spider-Man movie.

The British actor, who will reprise the lead role in the upcoming `Amazing Spider-Man 2` next year, said that the superheroes` love interest Mary Jane could be re-imagined as a male character named AJ, reported Digital Spy.

"I was kind of joking, but kind of not joking about MJ. And I was like, `What if MJ is a dude?` Why can`t we discover that Peter is exploring his sexuality? It`s hardly even groundbreaking! So why can`t he be gay? Why can`t he be into boys?," Garfield said.

When asked which actor could play AJ, he said, "I`ve been obsessed with Michael B Jordan since `The Wire`. He`s so charismatic and talented. It`d be even better - we`d have interracial bisexuality."

`The Amazing Spider-Man 2` will arrive on May 2, 2014. It will be followed by two more sequels on June 10, 2016, and May 4, 2018.
