The lack of any real thought that has gone into the heading of this post just goes to show how excited I am about this movie. Calling itself “the untold story”, I watched the trailer when it was released and instantly forgot it. I hate to admit it but the trailer was poor, and did not excite me one bit. I am hoping this is just a glitch, and a much better trailer is on the horizon, but only time will tell. The big question though, is did Spiderman REALLY need a reboot so soon after Tobey Maguire’s turn as the superhero? Director Marc Webb clearly thought so. Anyway, some new images and some improved older images follow the official synopsis:
Like most teenagers his age, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. In his journey to put the pieces of his past together he uncovers a secret that his father held…a secret that will ultimately shape his destiny as Spider-Man. This is the first in a series of movies that tells a different side of the Peter Parker story. On July 3rd, 2012, the untold story begins. And starring Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker), Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy), Denis Leary (George Stacy), Rhys Ifans (Curt Conners), Martin Sheen (Ben Parker), and Sally Field (May Parker), directed by Marc Webb, The Amazing Spider-Man movie is swinging into theaters in IMAX 3D!
The Amazing Spiderman arrives in the UK 4th July 2012.
