Columbia Pictures has released a new batch of high-resolution images from Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man and you would think Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone got a bad case of teenage brooding (possibly caught from the Twilight phenomenon?).
You probably haven’t seen the new settings of the pictures below so give them a look. It seems like Sony/Marvel are trying to market the teenage angst the characters are facing as a big selling point. It would certainly bring an added dimension to the story and characters if done right but given how misdirected similar attempts have looked in other franchises — most notably Twilight but also the previous Spider-Man 3 — I will wait for another trailer to see how this is handled.
Like most teenagers his age, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got 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. And starring Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker), Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy), Denis Leary (George Stacy), Rhys Ifans (Curt Conners), Martin Sheen (Ben Parker), and Sally Field (May Parker), directed by Marc Webb, The Amazing Spider-Man movie is swinging into theaters in IMAX 3D!
