As you’re of course well aware by now, Andrew Garfield is donning the Spidey suit with Marvel’s reboot, and the great Marc Webb is behind the camera for his first time helming a superhero blockbuster. It should be interesting.
Emma Stone stars as the female lead, with Rhys Ifans playing the Lizard, supported by the likes of Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Denis Leary, C. Thomas Howell, Irrfan Khan, and of course Stan Lee himself.
“The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents’ disappearance – leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors (Ifans), his father’s former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors’ alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.”
The Amazing Spider-Man will be released in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on 3rd July (a day earlier than expected) in the UK and US, so clear everything on your schedule for the first weekend of July.
