Andrew Garfield Skips Oscars, Chris Evans Steps in to Save the Night

He was billed as a ‘confirmed’ presenter at the 86th Academy Awards, so it was a bit curious when Andrew Garfield failed to make an appearance.

In a previous statement, Oscar producer Neil Meron declared, "Andrew Garfield is going to be part of what we hope is a very moving moment in the show, which will illustrate the theme of how movies have inspired.”

The entertainment industry honcho added, "He is going to induct a new superhero into the fraternity of superheroes."

But instead of the “Amazing Spider-Man” stud, “Captain America” hunk Chris Evans took care of the duties.

Garfield hasn’t issued a statement regarding his absence, so stay linked to the GossipCenter for all the latest details.
