The Amazing Spider-Man NEW trailer

HollywoodNews.com: The Amazing Spider-Man NEW trailer will debut this weekend in many theaters playing The Avengers.
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, 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, 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” unveils its latest trailer!

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: When Sony decided not to air any “Amazing Spider-Man” footage during Sunday’s Super Bowl, fans wondered how long we’d have to wait to get a decent look at footage from the anticipated summer blockbuster.
As it turns out, the wait was much shorter than we anticipated … and that’s a great thing.
The studio on Monday held special screenings in 15 major markets around the globe, teasing a “Spider-Man” sizzle reel that showed off Peter Parker’s sarcastic sense of humor and gave fans their first look at The Lizard, the new villain played by Rhys Ifans.
Couldn’t make it to the invitation-only screenings? No worries. Sony has you covered. They just dropped the latest full trailer for Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-Man.” We have it for you below:

I love it. Love, love, love it. Andrew Garfield nails the wise-ass tone of young Peter. The swinging effects look great. The Lizard could look a little more like the comics, with a pointy snout instead of the rounded head that Ifans seems to be sporting. But Peter’s line, about having to stop Lizard because he helped create him, suggests the “With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility” lesson of Stan Lee’s Spider-Man books.
If I had one complaint, it’s that Garfield doesn’t appear to be wearing his mask in the trailer’s final, eye-popping shot of the Oscorp roof collapsing. Why oh why do they keep making Spider-Man take his mask off in the concluding battles?! It was a MAJOR problem with the Raimi films, and Webb didn’t seem to learn the lesson.
The rest, however, looks fantastic. I think they figured out Spider-Man. Again. We’ll find out on July 3, when “The Amazing Spider-Man” opens everywhere in 2D and 3D.

“The Amazing Spider-Man” launches official Web site

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Christopher Nolan’s Batman sequel, “The Dark Knight Rises,” has been boosting most of the headlines on movie sites lately as the director unveils the first seven minutes of his anticipated blockbuster on IMAX screens and drops that menacing poster, with Bane (Tom Hardy) walking away from our hero’s discarded mask. Awesome.
But Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-Man,” another anticipated superhero thriller coming out Summer 2012, is attempting to wrestle back some of the spotlight by stepping up its marketing campaign. This morning, Sony has revealed the film’s official Web site, and it’s loaded with engaging content. Click here to check it out.
Instead of teasing fans with a barebones site, Sony wisely stocked the “Amazing” location with a gallery or images (most of which you’ve seen, if you have been paying attention), character bios, cast and crew information, and details on the story, which continue to hint at the fact that Peter Parker’s parents – played by Campbell Scott and Embeth Davidtz – will play a significant part of this origin story.
They also hint at sequels, promising that Webb’s film will be “the first in a series of movies that tells a different side of the Peter Parker story.”
Let’s hope so, because we’ve been through Spider-Man’s origin on screen before, and most of us will want to get to the Lizard (Rhys Ifans).
“Amazing” stars Andrew Garfield as everyone’s favorite wall-crawler, with Emma Stone as his teenage sweetheart, Gwen Stacy. The franchise reboot will be in theaters in July 3, 2012. I’m pasting the latest trailer below, but I’d love to see a new one (maybe with Lizard footage) soon:

“Amazing Spider-Man” hi-res images add mystery

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-Man” emerged from Comic-Con as the clear publicity winner, winning over fans with new footage (which included shots of Rhys Ifans as The Lizard) and introducing a totally charming Andrew Garfield to his ever-growing fan base.
While Sony’s Comic-Con push also included exclusive shots in EW and leaked (then official) “Amazing Spider-Man” trailers, we hadn’t yet seen hi-res versions of the best shots. ComingSoon clears that up. Here are some great ones below:

And then there’s this one, which puzzles me.

It has Emma Stone’s Gwen Stacy cleaning up Garfield’s bruises. Clearly he has been put through the wringer in a major battle. But does Gwen know he’s Spidey? Is he making up some excuse for the battle scars? Or will Peter have a partner behind the scenes in his fight against Dr. Curt Connors?
All will be revealed next summer, when “The Amazing Spider-Man” swings into theaters on July 3.

Spider-Man Comic-Con panel includes first look at The Lizard

By Adam Frazier
Hollywoodnews.com: The first official teaser trailer for Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-Man” debuted earlier this week, to a very mixed reaction. Last night Sony had their panel at San Diego Comic-Con and revealed footage from the upcoming film, complete with web-shooters and radioactive spiders.
The “Spider-Man” panel kicked off with actor Andrew Garfield in a cheap Spider-Man costume giving a passionate speech about how Spider-Man has inspired him and why he loves the character so much.
The panel included director Marc Webb, Emma Stone (the new Gwen Stacy), producers Matt Tomack and Avi Arad, with Garfield joining them on stage. The footage shown was a clip package (including some unfinished, rough cut material) that showcased Garfield as Peter Parker and his relationship with Uncle Ben, Gwen Stacy and the film’s villain, The Lizard.
In one scene, Peter find his father’s old OsCorp Industries employee ID in his attaché case, along with a top secret file that leads him back to OsCorp, where Gwen Stacy works as an assistant for Dr. Curt Connors.
Drew McWeeny of HitFix walked way feeling confident about the Webb’s film. “What really did it for me was seeing the wise-cracking, fast-talking Spidey, the one I’ve never seen in a film before. Garfield is just plain funny as Spider-Man… It’s playful. It’s not dour at all. And it’s the Spider-Man that I always wanted from the Raimi films.”
The real highlight of the footage, though, was the first appearance of The Lizard, monstrous alter-ego of Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans). Here are some reactions from writers in attendance:
“In the footage that first revealed the look of The Lizard, he comes up from the sewer through a toilet in a girls’ bathroom to scare a couple of young girls. His look is best described as Killer Croc meets Venom but the size of the Hulk. He’s huge, with a flat face and long tongue, and really detailed dark green, reptile scales.” – Germain Lussier, SlashFilm.
“The short piece ends with The Lizard smashing his way up through the floor of the girls bathroom in a high school, terrifying two teenaged girls. He’s a big giant CGI creature, very animal, with a nasty tongue and a flat, reptile face. He’s not exactly the version we’ve seen before, but if I had to name the character, I think “The Lizard” would be entirely fitting.” – Drew McWeeny, HitFix
“More of a cross between [...]

“Spider-Man” cover shot and teaser trailer info

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Do you want to know how I know San Diego’s Comic-Con is right around the corner? Because our Inbox is filled with superhero stories like this one.
Andrew Garfield, star of “The Social Network,” appears in his Spider-Man suit on the cover of Entertainment Weekly this week, but the mag posted a tease on EW.com. We have it below.

For those who don’t know, Garfield will be playing Peter Parker (and Spidey) in Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-Man,” which will be out July 2012. But a trailer will screen at Comic-Con next week, and hit the Web (no pun intended) shortly after.
What do you think of the costume? Looks very modern. Sleek and modern. Different from Tobey Maguire’s more traditional suit in his three “Spider-Man” features with Sam Raimi.
SuperheroHype also confirms that Rhys Ifans will be playing The Lizard in the film, so the villain that has been “under wraps” is out in the open. One of the worst-kept secrets of all time.
Look for the “Spider-Man” teaser trailer some time next week!

“Spider-Man” villain photographed on set

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Set photos have been pouring in from Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-Man.” Heck, we even saw YouTube videos of the crime-fighting web spinner swinging from a New York City bridge. Will there be any surprises left by the time this anticipated blockbuster rolls into theaters next summer?
Well, up until this point, the film’s official villain hadn’t been spotted. Rhys Ifans plays Dr. Curt Connors in the film … and as we all know from reading Spidey’s comic books, Connors goes on to become the savage Lizard.
This morning, set photos shot by J. Anthony Hall and posted to his Twitter feed reveal Ifans as Connors talking to Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker. We’ve got it below.
How do we know that’s Connors? Look at the green sleeve he’s wearing on his arm. In the comics, Connors has lost a limb, and its his experiments geared toward regenerating his missing arm that eventually turn him into The Lizard.
ComingSoon also collected a handful of on-set shots capturing Garfield, Emma Stone (as Gwen Stacy) and Martin Sheen as Parker’s Uncle Ben.
“The Amazing Spider-Man” reaches theaters on July 3, 2012 … you know, if there’s anything left to see!

Emma Stone on “Spider-Man,” Andrew Garfield and harnesses

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Clearly, one of the film’s in production we’re most excited about is Marc Webb’s “Spider-Man” reboot. It ranks right up there with “The Dark Knight Rises” and probably the one-two punch of “Thor” and “Captain America.” So anytime a cast member from Webb’s planned blockbuster speaks about their role in the superhero extravaganza, we’re eager to share.
While speaking with MTV about the huge year she is enjoying, Emma Stone opened up about playing Gwen Stacy, the love interest of Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker.
“The way I have to approach it, and I think Andrew would agree, is just like any other movie,” Stone told MTV. “You’re going to put the same amount of focus into this that you would with anything. It just happens to be an exponentially bigger budget. So there’s that. It’ll probably feel different when we start to do press, but we won’t have to deal with that for another year and a half. And there are harnesses I’m going to have to use in this one. That’s the only difference: just the harnesses.”
Please tell me she is wearing a harness because Webb is going to toss her off the top of a bridge, just out of Spidey’s reach!
Oh, wait. Rhys Ifans reportedly is playing The Lizard, and not The Green Goblin. Sorry. We’re clinging to Spider-Man rumors, though they are few and far between right now. Just harnesses. But it begins filming soon ahead of a 2012 release. Stay tuned!

Martin Sheen joins “Spider-Man,” and Sally Field might be next

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Some “Spider-Man” casting news is hitting the Interwebs this evening as Marc Webb rounds out his big-budget reboot.
Since we know the plot, conceived by James Vanderbilt, will focus on Peter Parker and his masked hero during his high school years, Webb and his already cast lead, Andrew Garfield, is going to need an Uncle Ben. And Variety reports Martin Sheen is in final negotiations to play Peter’s doomed relative.
But who will play the legendary Aunt May? Hours after announcing Sheen’s interest, the trade says Sally Field has been “offered” the role and is considering joining the production ahead of its December start.
What else do we know about Spidey? Well, Rhys Ifans is on board as The Lizard. And Emma Stone of “Easy A” will play Spidey’s love interest, Gwen Stacey. I think Sheen’s an excellent choice for Uncle Ben, though I wonder if he’ll survive long enough to appear in a few installments now that they’re not doing the traditional origin story that Raimi adapted in his first “Spider-Man.”
As for Field, I’m unsure. In a way, I wish Webb would just invite Rosemary Harris to return, as she nailed to role in Raimi’s films. She and J.K. Simmons would be the only actors I’d hold over from Raimi’s universe. Sadly, it ain’t happening.
“Spider-Man” will be in theaters in 2012.

And the Spider-Man villain will be …

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: We know Rhys Ifans will play the villain in Marc Webb’s Spider-Man reboot, with Andrew Garfield in the hero’s tights.
Now an exclusive scoop on The Wrap claims that Ifans will play The Lizard, as well as (I assume) his alter ego, Dr. Curt Connors.
In the books, Connors is one of Peter Parker’s professors. In an effort to generate a limb, he concocts a potion which transforms him into the scaly, vicious Lizard. It was believed Dylan Baker would become the Lizard, after appearing as the character in three of Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man films. But if the Wrap is right, Lizard will terrorize Spidey in 2012.
Emma Stone has been cast as love interest Gwen Stacey. The movie, which will be presented in 3-D, opens on July 3, 2012.
