“Amazing Spider-Man” poster promises an “Untold” story

By Adam Frazier
Hollywoodnews.com: There’s a brand-new poster for Columbia Pictures’ “The Amazing Spider-Man.” The slick design features Andrew Garfield (“The Social Network”) as Peter Parker, scaling a wall and casting an eight-legged shadow, mimicking the insignia on Spider-Man’s chest.

The poster’s tagline cryptically teases that the film will tell “The Untold Story”. While the origins of Spider-Man are well known, Peter Parker’s past hasn’t been explored in past film adaptations. Being as we’ll be reintroduced to the radioactive spider bit, you’ve got to wonder if Marc Webb is revisiting this part of the mythology to insert new information about Parker’s childhood.

“The Untold Story” may involve Parker’s parents, Captain Richard Parker and Mary Fitzpatrick, C.I.A operatives recruited by Nick Fury. Together they posed as traitors and double agents to infiltrate a criminal organization but were discovered and killed when their airplane was sabotaged by an assassin, leaving Peter to be raised by his Uncle Ben and Aunt May.

Perhaps Spider-Man’s origins are directly linked to the events that leave Peter Parker an orphan. We’ll find out on July 3, 2012 when “The Amazing Spider-Man” opens in 3D and 2D theaters. The Marc Webb-directed superhero flick also stars Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Martin Sheen and Sally Field.
