Andrew Garfield looks an excellent fit for Peter Parker, while Emma Stone is always popular and Rhys Ifans seems to be having fun as Curt Connors/ The Lizard. Director Marc Webb looks to have woven a decent story, even if the whole thing does look a little CGI-happy. There are a couple of exciting action beats in here, as well as some nice exchanges between the leads. Garfield also gets to crack wise a little, giving us hope that this incarnation might well have fun on the agenda.
The Amazing Spider-Man is out on July 3rd, and also stars Sally Field, Martin Sheen, Denis Leary, C Thomas Howell, Irrfan Khan and Chris Zylka.

I enjoyed the Toby Maguire Spider-Man series of films but I think we can all agree that they had some pretty terrible moments, particularly the third film. When I heard they were going to make a fourth with the same actors I wanted to tell them to give it a rest but Hollywood and character rights being what they are, they decided to move ahead, only to change direction and reboot the series instead. The trailer looks incredibly dark. Not Batman Begins dark, more like they needed a bigger budget for lighting dark. Hopefully it won’t be so shady in theaters.
Fresh from the OnLocation News website….some new pictures of the New Spiderman Reboot movie starring Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker. I am not really crazy about the new costume. What do you guys think?

Denis Leary is in negotiations to play the father of Emma Stone in Columbia’s new Spider-Man movie.
Stone is playing the love interest of Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) and Leary will play police captain George Stacy, her father who frequently came into contact with the web-slinging superhero.
In Marvel Comics lore, Stacy perished in an accident during a battle between Spider-Man and Doctor Octopus, an event that led Gwen Stacy to hate the hero.
Columbia and director Marc Webb are keeping the James Vanderbilt and Alvin Sargent-penned script under lock and key so it’s uncertain how faithful to the core story Leary’s version of the character will be.
Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach and Laura Ziskin are producing the movie, which begins shooting in December.
WME-repped Leary hasn’t appeared in a theatrical movie since 2002’s The Secret Lives of Dentists, although he has been starring in the acclaimed drama Rescue Me since 2004. He appeared in HBO’s Recount and has continued to voice the character of Diego the sabertooth in the Ice Age movies.
From the wiki: “Spider-Man: Back in Black” by J. Michael Straczynski and illustrated by Ron Garney (penciler), Bill Reinhold (inker), Matt Milla (colorist) and VC’s Cory Petit (letterer) was published in the comic book series The Amazing Spider-Man #539-543. The story takes place immediately after Marvel’s Civil War event and what happened to Spider-Man, Mary Jane Watson, and Aunt May in after the event. The story is about Spider-Man’s anger and determination to find Aunt May’s shooter. Hence, he wears the black suit, modeled after the alien symbiote, to emphasize his humorless aggression. He is often seen in action without his mask on, as well, showing his rage and thirst for vengeance.
Spider-Man: Back in Black is the latest item from the brilliant designers and sculptors at Sideshow in collaboration with Marvel. The black-suited Spider-Man is a fan favourite, representing a darker side of Peter Parker, and this 11-inch is sure to please many. Smoothly crafted to perfectly capture the sleek look of his costume, it makes a great addition to any display shelf. You can pre-order it now and expect it to ship later this month!
Spider-Man 4 is at a production stoppage due to creative differences between Sony Pictures and the writers and director, Sam Raimi. Now, according to Starpulse, Kirsten Dunsts’ Mary-Jane might very well be written out of Peter Parker’s life in the 4th instalment of the franchise. Anti-Dunst-as-Mary-Jane fans can have a merrier Christmas with this report. But those fans should not get too joyful yet, nothing is confirmed.
One complaint many fans have about the Spider-Man film franchise since it began is Kirsten Dunst playing Mary-Jane Watson. Some fans like her, others hate her. That is more of a subjective view than anything else.
Who will take up the role of Peter Parker’s love interest after MJ is gone? They say that Anne Hathaway is in talks to play Felecia Hardy, the Black Cat. It seems as though Anne’s character will be set up to be the female lead of the franchise after Dunst is done.
None of this is official and we very well could be seeing Dunst as Mary-Jane for many sequels to come. Until we get official word that the film will resume production, any news concerning the direction they will take with the franchise should be taken with a grain of salt. Until further notice then.
