Spider-Man's Secret Identity Revealed

Posted by: Sunfrogolin on July 03, 2010

There’s a new hero in town and it isn’t Toby Maguire. Andrew Garfield, best known for his role as the tall guy in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnasus has just been chosen to be the new Spider-Man in the latest Spidey movie.

"Though his name may be new to many, those who know this young actor's work understand his extraordinary talents," says director Marc Webb. "He has a rare combination of intelligence, wit, and humanity. Mark my words, you will love Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker."

Marc Webb takes over the directing from Sam “Spidey shouldn’t wear a mask” Rami. Sorry, I’m still mad at Sam for ruining Spidey 3. Grr..

"In the Spider-Man tradition, we were looking for a smart, sensitive, and cool new Peter Parker who can inspire us and make us laugh, cry, and cheer," says Avi Arad, producer. "We believe we have found the perfect choice to take on this role and lead us into the future."

The newest Spiderman movie is slated for a 2012 release. No word on a title or storyline yet but it's believed that the story will focus on the young Peter Parker before he became a hero. Should be interesting. Hmm...

    I had enough of young Peter Parker. I thought Peter & Spidey was most interesting in his college years and beyond (except the stupid clone saga). I'm tired of treading the same ground with comic book movies. I'll still see it eventually, but I don't want a repeat of the first Spider-Man movie. Can't Hollywood get a new idea instead of trying to appeal to the same market of the latest successes? It's all about the Twilight youth, back in the 90's it was all about the ladies with Titanic and such. Why not try to appeal to a broader audience with movies and have some new ideas?

    rebooting spidey seems a tad unnecessary tbh. The previous trilogy had come to a natural end and we have all these Marvel films scheduled to come out anyway.
