Los Angeles - Andrew Garfield, 29, wants his Amazing Spider-Man 2 alter ego to be gay.

Garfield, who is dating co-star Emma Stone, who plays Gwen Stacy in the film, would prefer it if Spider-Man's Peter Parker was into men rather than women.

He even suggested it to producer Matt Tolmach, that his on-screen love interest Mary Jane Watson could be a guy.

He told Entertainment Weekly: "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?"

Andrew has even placed The Wire actor Michael B Jordan at the top of his list of possible candidates to play MJ. 

He added: "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!"

Andrew's comments come after Shailene Woodley filmed scenes as MJ for the forthcoming film that was later completely cut from the movie.
