MANILA - "Spider-Man" star Andrew Garfield will be giving a message to his Filipino fans this weekend during the annual Earth Hour switch-off, organizers announced Thursday.

The message from the 30-year-old actor will be shown at the Eastwood City Open Park at around 8:30 p.m.

Spider-Man, the Marvel superhero portrayed by Garfield on the big screen, is the official celebrity endorser of this year's Earth Hour 60+ campaign.

According to organizers, Eastwood City's switch-off is one of the biggest single Earth Hour switch-offs in Metro Manila with 19 residential towers, 10 office buildings, three malls, and a hotel participating in the annual event.

Garfield's part in the Earth Hour campaign leads up to the release of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," which will hit theaters in the Philippines on April 30.

In an earlier interview with ABS-CBN News, Garfield turned emotional as he gave a message to the millions affected by super typhoon Yolanda (international name Haiyan), which devastated parts of central Philippines in November.
