Our friendly neighborhood Spidey is returning to theaters next year, but will it be any good? Yesterday the most highly anticipated panel of the day was for Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man, directed by Marc Webb and starring Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker. It was only a few days ago that we finally got the first teaser trailer, but they showed a new block of never-before-seen footage and revealed our first look at Rhys Ifans as the villain The Lizard. Following the panel, our own die-hard Spider-Man fan Brandon and blogger Ethan recorded a video blog talking about how all of the new footage impressed and amazed them.
Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man stars Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker, our hero Spider-Man, as well as Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Rhys Ifans as Dr. Connors, Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben Parker, Sally Field as Aunt May and Denis Leary as George Stacy. 500 Days of Summer director Marc Webb is directing this new reboot of Spider-Man, from a screenplay co-written by Alvin Sargent (Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2, 3), Steve Kloves (Harry Potter movies) and James Vanderbilt (The Rundown, Zodiac, The Losers). Sony Pictures is bringing Amazing Spider-Man to theaters next summer in 3D on July 3rd, 2012. Can't wait to see more!
