"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
As you might expect, Entertainment Weekly‘s 2012 preview — the issue with Christian Bale as Batman on the cover — is shaping up to be a treasure trove of movie stills, including a new image of Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man.
Thanks to Caleb Hamilton, Comic Book Movie and the magazine’s iPad edition, we now have a high-res look at the photo, along with a blurb that doesn’t tell us anything about director Marc Webb’s franchise reboot that we didn’t already know.
“Ultimately what this movie is about is a kid who grows up looking for his father and finds himself,” Webb tells the magazine. “And that’s a Spider-Man story we haven’t seen before.”
Opening July 3, the Columbia Pictures film also stars Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Irrfan Khan, Denis Leary, Chris Zylka, Campbell Scott, C. Thomas Howell, Embeth Davidtz and Annie Parisse.
