“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.

Official “The Amazing Spider-Man” trailer released!

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The first official trailer for Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-Man” has reached the Web!
Granted, Internet pirates pretty much forced Sony’s hand, posting ripped videos of a bootlegged trailer online in close-to-decent quality. It’s unclear when the studio planned to release the trailer – probably during Comic-Con – but whatever. It’s out there. In HD. Enjoy!

Now, let’s talk about it. The movie has the feel of an indie drama, with Andrew Garfield stepping into the role of the orphaned Peter Parker. There’s a new emphasis on Peter’s parents, and what looks like an unnecessary rehash of his origin story (seriously, who the hell needs that?!) But the clip ends with an impressive POV shot of Spidey taking flight over Manhattan, and given Webb’s comments about how his 3D will put people in the action, that clip convinces me that he wasn’t lying.
What did you think?

“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!

“Spider Man” keeps on changing tactics

By Roger Friedman
HollywoodNews.com: “Spider Man: Turn off the Dark” is now using understudies instead of its leads for regular performances. Two sources tell me that an announcement was made to the cast and crew that Reeve Carney, who plays Peter Parker, Jennifer Damiano (Mary Jane), and Patrick Page (Green Goblin) are all out of the main performances for the next two weeks. The reason is they’re rehearsing new material on dawn til dusk.
The good news might be that audiences will see Matthew James Thomas as Peter Parker. He’s very good. What’s unclear is how this affects the character of Arachne, played by T.V. Carpio. She’s been out because of an injury. Her understudy, America Olivo, has been playing Arachne. Who is rehearsing Arachne’s new material is a big question. But that role, sources tell me, is being cut way down anyway.
“The whole second act has been rewritten,” says a source. “And there are new songs.” The show closes down after the April 17th performance, for three and a half weeks. The whole first week, I’m told, is just to make technical changes without the actors.
Meantime, the “Spider Man” producers still have no signed deal with creator Julie Taymor. Sources say that legally she may still have power to veto the new work that’s being done.

“Spider-Man” snags Dennis Leary in its casting web

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The cast of Marc Webb’s “Spider-Man” reboot (this thing needs an official title, soon) continues to fill out with excellent choices. Sony isn’t going for stunt casting, grabbing name-brand celebs to gussy up the marquee. I’m looking at you, Gov. Schwarzenegger as Mr. Freeze.
Instead, they are lucking into talented performers like Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone who happen to be on the rise but have the chops to back up their fame. Rhys Ifans sounds like he’ll be an intriguing, multi-faceted villain. Having Martin Sheen and Sally Field (once she’s confirmed) as Uncle Ben and Aunt May is inspired. And today, a comedian with dramatic flair joins the ranks.
Dennis Leary is in negotiations to join “Spider-Man” as police captain George Stacy, father of Peter Parker’s love interest Gwen (Stone). Sure, Leary is a comedian. But anyone who has watched him on FX’s “Rescue Me” knows he has far more range than most stand-ups. Of course, Leary will have to fill the massive shoes of comedian Jim Norton, whose line delivery in the first “Spider-Man” stole that show away from legitimate stars Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst. Perhaps Norton can return for this reboot? Surely there is room for this talented thespian?
Webb’s “Spider-Man” reboot is supposed to begin filming this December. It will be in theaters on July 3, 2012.

“Spider-Man” dancer seriously injured in fall from “high distance”

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: How is Spider-Man supposed to swing from the rooftops of Manhattan for his much-ballyhooed Broadway debut if both his wrists are broken?
That’s the latest problem facing “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark,” as one of the performers who doubles as the web slinger fell from a self-described “high distance” during a flying stunt and shattered both his wrists.
“Well, i dont know what im allowed to say. but something went wrong and i fell on my hands from a high distance,” dancer Kevin Aubin posted on his Facebook page, according to the NY Times. “It happens, no one to blame. I’m alive and ok.”
A spokesperson for the show later confirmed the report. The Times says lead actor and singer Reeve Carney plays Spider-Man and his alter ego, Peter Parker, but “professionally trained dancers in Spider-Man costumes do much of the character’s flying during the show.”
It was during one of these stunts that Aubin was injured. It’s yet another hiccup fro a production that has faced multiple obstacles on its way to the stage. Aubin seems okay with the outcome, though he’ll likely be sidelined for some time.
Meanwhile, the show must go on. “Spider-Man,” directed by Julie Taymor with music by Bono and The Edge, opens at the Foxwoods Theater on Broadway on Nov. 14.

Andrew Garfield connects with Spider-man

HollywoodNews.com: Andrew Garfield is taking a method actor’s approach to Spider-man.
The actor is trying to connect facets of himself to that of his on-screen alter-ego, particularly in terms of the pressures both he and Peter Parker/Spider-man face. The process is a challenge for the thespian.
“I think it’s going to be a little bit more complicated than what I imagined. And, of course, I’m going to feel a great pressure, which might be one of Peter Parker’s great struggles, in having to live up to this thing that he is supposed to be or symbolizes,” says Garfield.
“It will be interesting. I think the more I can tie into my own reality, the better and more enriching it will be for everyone involved,” added the actor.
Garfield, 27, has been introduced to U.S. audiences this season in the critically acclaimed “The Social Network” and the British import “Never Let Me Go.”
Upon being casted, Garfield felt as though he was in a “bubble.”
He recently spoke with Virgin Media about the role.
It was announced last week that “Easy A” star Emma Stone had been cast as Garfield’s love interest in Marc Webb’s superhero epic.

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.
