We have new hi-res images to share from Marc Webb’s Spider-Man reboot, The Amazing Spider-Man with Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone. You may think you’ve seen some of these before, but you haven’t seen them like this, all cleaned up and so big!
Before this was confirmed as a reboot of the Spider-Man series, Sam Raimi, director of those three films was going to direct a fourth installment with John Malkovich set to portray villain Adrian Toomes/”The Vulture”, while Anne Hathaway was reportedly cast as Felicia Hardy. Her character would have deviated from the comic book, as she would have been the Vulture’s daughter and would become “The Vulturess” rather than the “Black Cat”. When Raimi decided not to make Spider-Man 4, Hathaway was, of course, cast in another comic book film, The Dark Knight Rises, as “Catwoman”.
With a screenplay co-written by Alvin Sargeant (who wrote Spiderman 2 & 3) and Steve Kloves (the man responsible for the scripts for all 8 Harry Potter films), The Amazing Spider-Man has a cast that includes Denis Leary, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, C. Thomas Howell, Campbell Scott, Julianne Nicholson, Annie Parisse and Meagan Good. Stan Lee makes a cameo as, who else, “Stan the Man”.
I’m sure we’ll have much more (maybe tomorrow, maybe next month) on The Amazing Spider-Man before it opens worldwide on July 3, 2012.
