New website images and character details from The Amazing Spider-Man

02.06.2012

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN official website posted an update recently with some character images and descriptions, which don't reveal much more than we already know, but are still of interest. We also have some details from director Marc Webb, involving the use of 3D and Peter Parker's "punk rock" qualities, which might actually change your mind about the film, depending on which side you're leaning. 

Check out the details and images below:

About the tone of the film:

"There is betrayal, there is tragedy, but there’s also humor and romance. So it’s a very complex bouquet of emotions, but what you have to tread on is what feels authentic and what feels real, and you have to earn those different emotions. There are moments of furiousness and gravity, absolutely."

About Andrew Garfield's approach to Spider-Man's trademark humor:

"He used this term to describe Peter Parker in Spider-Man and Spider-Man in particular: he’s a trickster. He was like “How would Spider-Man web this guy? He’d give him a wedgy or he’d dos some awful graffiti.” There’s a punk rock quality to Peter Parker that’s really irreverent and fun and that’s something that Andrew embodies in a way that we haven’t seen before. Certainly the materials that have come out have a darker sentiment or there’s a darker projection, but we’re very keen on staying loyal to the humor of Spider-Man."

About the use of 3D in the film:

"I thought if there’s ever a movie that should be in 3D, it’s Spider-Man for crying out loud. And watching it in 3D, particularly in IMAX, even the early stuff I’ve seen, it’s fantastic. You get a visceral feeling that you don’t get any other way when you have good 3D.

We shot this all in stereo so it was native 3D. Nothing has been converted. And when you get that scope, the movie gradually expands. It starts off in a very intimate, small way and gradually expands to take advantage of that sensation. So do you have to see it in 3D? No, you’ll still get the thrill of it. But those point-of-view sequences, those came very directly from a philosophy about putting the audience in Spider-Man’s shoes. We wanted them to feel what he feels, and that’s where those sequences came from."

Extra Tidbit: Personally, I would rather have seen a "re-imagined" Green Goblin than a low-rate villain like The Lizard for The Amazing Spider-Man. Aside from that, what about Hobgoblin or Kraven the Hunter?

I'd rather see raime redo spiderman 3. it would have no sandman, no uncle ben revist, no gwen stacy, and franco/harry in a very limited role. it'd be mostly spiderman dealing with the suit and eddie brock causing all kinds of trouble.

If you ever get the chance to view the Playboy spread she did, definitely view it. I stumbled upon it at a friends house when I was like 8 or 9. Thank goodness his dad had a collection of dirty magazines, otherwise I would have been deprived until my teen years. Sally Field was my first crush.

I was never a fan of this right from the get-go. From what I've seen so far its been very "meh." The only good thing I do like is that they didnt use organic web shooters but ones that he built. Until I see the Lizard in action I'm holding judgement.

What I'm hoping happens with this series is a build up to the Goblin. Hopefully over a trilogy. Unless I'm mistaken, there hasn't been a casting for Norman yet, but they if they could really build on a twisted father/son relationship between him and Peter, his impact in the series would be far more memorable then Raimi's. And if they find the balls to kill Gwen at the end of said trilogy, I'd be really impressed.

I don't get all the hate. I think it's a great idea to take something familiar like Spiderman and do something different.

Regarding the tidbit

Why would we get a re-imagined Green Goblin for a movie that is acting as a reboot to completely separate itself from Raimi's movies? I'm glad to see we're finally getting the Lizard after its been teased to death. And the Lizard isn't a low-rate villain, Mysterio, Chameleon, and Tomb Stone are low-rate villains.

Plus we've had TWO Goblins in the three previous films.

Lizard a low rate villain? No. I would much rather have a new villain than Green Goblin again. Now Kraven would be nice for the second film. I wouldn't mind Mysterio, Rhino or Kingpin.

Sounding better and better

when i first heard of this i was against it but it gets realer by the update. and spiderman is tormented by having to be this. i dont know how any one would be happy having to fight crime everyday. thats why police end up bad cuz they see it everyday. superman returns was a great movie with bad direction.

Look if you wanna have a happy go lucky spierman go back to the comics where ppl get killed and spiderman jokes around and the villain goes to jail and comes back out somehow. Superheroes

Superheroes are ppl with feelings so why not portray them like that? if there wasnt pain there'd be no need for superheroes youd have superman and batman just meeting up for golf and aquaman working at seaworld.

Shouldnt spiderman be more - i dont know, happier? I know his uncle dies and he's a nerd,
but this movie seems so depressing.

I dont ever remember being depressed while watching anything to do with spiderman.
this film is missing it's mark it seems. Ill wait till i see it for the final verdict, but this has a
Superman returns vide for me, which is not good.

Spiderman at heart, isn't a very happy character. He's defined and driven by guilt and tragedy.
