Move over Tobey Maguire, there’s a new superhero in town…and it’s that slightly geeky/slightly attractive guy from The Social Network.
In a teaser released today we get the first look at actor Andrew Garfield as he takes over the lead role of Peter Parker (Spider-Man) from Maguire.
The fourth Spider-Man release from Columbia Pictures is an attempt to reboot the franchise, with a completely new cast.
Emma Stone stars as the superhero’s love interest and Rhys Ifans plays Dr Curt Connors.
Music video director Marc Webb takes over from Sam Raimi, who withdrew from the original project last year as he felt he could not meet the planned release date. Webb directed his first feature film, (500) Days of Summer, in 2009.
The Amazing Spider-Man is scheduled to be released in 3D next year. The US release date is set for 3 July.
