As much of a Spider-Man fan-boy as I am, I am still having a hard time coping with the fact that Tobey Maguire isn’t Peter Parker anymore. He was absolutely perfect for the role. I havn’t seen this new kid (Andrew Garfield) in anything yet, so I can’t honestly judge, but still, I’m already biased…regardless of how cheesy Maguire was in Spider-Man 3.
The Amazing Spider-Man is being shot entirely in 3D, so scenes like the first-person wall-crawling we saw in the trailer, reminiscent of Mirror’s Edge, will probably be vomit inducing to some. Amazing Spider-Man has a July 3rd, 2012 release date, and a unconfirmed budget of $220 million [source.]
The film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Martin Sheen, and Sally Field.
