Following the heels of a newly released teaser poster for “The Amazing Spider-Man”, Sony Pictures has launched the official website for Marc Webb’s reboot film for “The Amazing Spider-Man”, hitting theaters in 2D and 3D on July 3, 2012 (July 4 in Australia). Say what you will about the dreaded reboot and being too soon or whatever, but it’s happening and well, as much as I’ll miss Tobey & the gang, this reboot looks promising and I’m totally loving the shot of Emma & Andrew as their characters in the school scene.
Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Sally Field, and Martin Sheen star in the film along with C. Thomas Howell, Chris Zylka as Flash Thompson, Campbell Scott and Irrfan Khan.
The official site offers brand new wallpapers, character bios, photos and the film’s synopsis which is as follows:
Like most teenagers his age, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he to be the person he is today. In his journey to put the pieces of his past together he uncovers a secret that his father held… a secret that will ultimately shape his destiny as Spider-Man. This is the first in a series of movies that tells a different side of the Peter Parker story. On July 3rd, 2012, the untold story begins.
Character bios are as follows:
Ever since Peter’s parents disappeared 13 years ago, he has struggled to find his purpose in life. Now, on the brink of unlocking the mystery about what happened to them, he must face the ultimate challenge – one that has been created within the laboratories of Oscorp.
Smart, charismatic and rebellious, Gwen is the chief intern at Oscorp, a position she takes very seriously. But her life takes a complicated turn as she watches both her boyfriend, Peter, and her mentor, Dr. Connors, undergo radical transformations.
An esteemed police officer for over twenty years, Captain Stacy is the public face of the NYPD who leads the department’s investigation into Spider-Man’s vigilantism. The only thing Captain Stacy vows to protect more than the city is his family – and particularly his only daughter, Gwen.
Dr. Curt Connors
One of the leading scientific minds, Dr. Connors attempts to engineer a revolutionary regeneration serum to help re-grow limbs and human tissue. His motivations are unclear as to why he elects to be the first human test subject – but what becomes evident is that something goes horribly wrong.
