For a geeky dude, Andrew Garfield‘s Peter Parker does pretty well with the ladies. He got himself into a relationship with the amazing Gwen Stacy in The Amazing Spider-Man, and over the next couple of installments he’ll also cross paths with Mary Jane Watson and Felicia Hardy.

Each time Andrew Garfield‘s name comes up for a project these days, it’s seemingly bigger and more impressive than the last thing.

Martin Scorsese has cast Garfield as the lead in in Silence, based on an Shusaku Endo novel about Jesuits who attempt to spread Christianity in 17th century Japan.
