The Amazing Spider-Man star Emma Stone appeared Wednesday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, bringing with her a new clip from director Marc Webb’s franchise reboot depicting an early, and awkward, exchange between Gwen Stacy and a possibly concussed Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield).
Stone followed on the web-covered heels of her co-star Garfield, who stopped by the show on Tuesday to discuss getting in shape for the role, and feeling naked and vulnerable in the skin-tight Spider-Man costume. “It’s the worst,” he admitted.
Watch the new clip, along with the appearances by Stone and Garfield, below.
The Amazing Spider-Man, which opens July 3, also stars Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Irrfan Khan, Denis Leary, Chris Zylka, Campbell Scott, C. Thomas Howell, Embeth Davidtz and Annie Parisse.
The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Martin Sheen) and Aunt May (Sally Field). 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 (Emma Stone), 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 (Rhys Ifans), 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.
