Amazing Spider-Man Site Teases Details for ‘Different Side’ of Story

Sony Pictures has launched its full website for The Amazing Spider-Man, which touts director Marc Webb’s franchise reboot as “the first in a series of movies that tells a different side of the Peter Parker story.”

The site, which features new images and brief biographies of Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker, Emma Stone’s Gwen Stacy, Rhys Ifans’ Curt Connors and Denis Leary’s George Stacy, plays up the mystery surrounding the mysterious disappearance 13years earlier of Peter’s parents — played by Campbell Scott and Embeth Davidtz (who replaced Julianne Nicholson).

The film is characterized as a journey of self-discovery, as Peter “uncovers a secret that his father held … a secret that will ultimately shape his destiny as Spider-Man.” The accompanying image in the site’s story section includes what appears to be an old photo of Richard Parker and Curt Connors (see the screenshot below).

The Amazing Spider-Man, which opens July 3, also stars Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Irrfan Khan, Chris Zylka, C. Thomas Howell and Annie Parisse.

    Ah yes, Gwen in the miniskirts and boots look from the early 70’s!  At least they got that right!  However, Spidey’s silver booties with suctions cups on the soles is cause for alarm!

    Not that he was even created when they started production, but if they were going to reboot, I wish they would have done Ultimate/Miles Morales Spidey.

    As it stands, I’m not even sure I want to see this on video…

    Donald Glover, anyone?

    Seriously? These pictures don’t appeal to anyone even now? I find that these pictures have made me even more excited for the movie, including the synopsis. Highly excited! The costume looks much cooler now, and is that a face of Spidey repeated on the strap of his Camera? I think this looks very good.

  • David Fullam

    Uh, so if the story pic is any indication, Pete will have an enormous member and use his mask as a condom?

  • Happily LS

    He doesn’t need boots. This version of Spiderman uses the web that shoots out of the back of his neck, remember?

  • Omegasaga

    This REMAKE will probably be like BATMAN BEGINS…. everythng will be handled more realisticly and be an epic movie overall…. except like BATMAN BEGINS  this costume will SUCK hard!

  • Mitch

    That guy does not look like a high school student

  • Lance Cromwell

    Nothing like 30 year olds playing 16 year olds. Just pathetic Sony.

  • Jacob

    o.o It happens all the time.

  • Jacob

    I’m annoyed there’s a camera at all. It’s the 21st Century. There’s multiple industries for geeks to work in now. Make him a web developer like USM! fklsaj;dlkfjas;gja;sdfj;sadlkfj;laskjf;laskdh;as

  • JJ
