andrew garfield.


Enough speculation already. Andrew Garfield has been officially cast as the new Spider-Man in Sony's upcoming 3D reboot, due to hit screens on July 3, 2012. The studio released the news via a press release.

The new film will begin production in early December, directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt. Laura Ziskin and Avi Arad will produce.

Garfield (The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus) is one of a few names that have been thrown around to take over the role. The list previously included Josh Hutcherson, Jamie Bell (Jumper), Anton Yelchin (Star Trek), Aaron Johnson (Kick-Ass), Alden Ehrenreich (Tetro) and Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson). But all of them can stop practicing their web slinging, as Garfield has beaten them all out.

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

Arad added, "I'm incredibly excited about Andrew Garfield. 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. We believe we have found the perfect choice to take on this role and lead us into the future."

Ziskin also chimed in, "We are thrilled to have Andrew Garfield for this new incarnation of Spider-Man under Marc Webb's direction. We were fortunate enough to meet with a group of fantastically talented young men. In the end, we all agreed that in addition to being an extraordinary actor, Andrew had the right mix of humor, youth, and pathos, along with an underlying sense of strength and power necessary to bring Peter Parker and Spider-Man to life on screen."

If you haven't seen Garfield in anything, that's likely to change by the end of this year. He most recently worked with director David Fincher on The Social Network and starred for Spike Jonze in his robot love story I'm Here, which premiered at Sundance. He also plays the lead male opposite Keira Knightley and Carey Mulligan in Mark Romanek's Never Let Me Go, due for release later this year.

The selection of Garfield was revealed at a press event in Cancun, Mexico for international journalists attending a media tour promoting upcoming Sony films.

i just know him from "doctor who", where he played some hick kid.

it'll work, though...he looks like modern peter parker, whatever that means lol

07-01-2010, 09:56 PM
Why are they rebooting this franchise? SMH @ hollywood. There was no need.

07-01-2010, 09:58 PM
I haven't seen this guy in anything but looking at the pic he seems like a fine choice, I can see him as peter parker.

07-01-2010, 10:10 PM
Yeah dude could pass as parker....Im glad they are rebooting this franchise, I didn`t like the recent spiderman movies...I hope they make it more grimey and cool....somthing the last spiderman was lacking badly...Don`t ask me why but tobey maguire, kirsten dunst and william defoe just didn`t do it for me. (I know there are more than one movie but the first movie is what turned me off in a way) alfred mollina as doc oc was also a disappointment.... To tell you the truth I hope the fisrt villian is not green goblin.

Definitely gonna check for this when it drops.

peace be with you !

netscape check two

Is he going to have a blow out cut during the movie? lol

07-02-2010, 03:32 PM
Dude needs to hit the gym.

07-04-2010, 12:28 AM
this definately works

07-04-2010, 12:41 AM
If There is a Great Spirit Please find an attractive red head to play Mary Jane that I can fap to. Dunst was neither hot enough or a red head. God Damn it. She is cute at best. MJ is supposed to be some fiery tang. He also must be involved with an equally hot Gwen Stacy. He must be a bro instead of a bitch like the last one. Only a bro is worthy of being a superhero and getting all the hot muff that entails/ kicking the shit out of douchebag hipster supervillains. Again, don't make him a teenage bitch who miraculously becomes an adult bitch, peter parker was never a pussy, he just had the odd cold streaks that got him bummed out... but nothing a beer and some head couldn't fix.

In your name I pray.

07-04-2010, 02:25 AM
Scarlett Johansen with red hair (Ironman 2) could of played a good Mary Jane

07-04-2010, 04:25 AM
she shouldn't be the main focus. let her have a small role that in the first movie. they should give liz and betty a chance. then gwen and mj.

07-04-2010, 10:45 PM
Or several girls in his life per movie. It is spiderman we're talking about. For me the sensitive version of Parker that's obsessed with MJ is like trying to imagine Superman not having more kills then Chamberlain. The only person who could play MJ is Ann Margaret, but she's too old (69, giggity.)

Who gets super powers and is like "I think I love her."

No, he goes "Hey Green Goblin smell my finger, I just finished off your sister." It's like the completely forgot he's like 20 years old, good looking, and was known for being a playful jackass. Other super heroes are tough. Look at say Christian Bale's overly masculine grunting in Batman. Batman's a fucking killa. I mean technically not, but he holds himself back because he wants to fucking castrate you with his razor bladed bat-knife.

Spiderman was the wisecracking "I hope you get used to prison rules, ya ass viking." I mean he didn't say that in the comics, but Marvel wasn't going to print what he actually said, it was the 1960s. Had they made the character now, he's probably be a young entrepreneurial New York City private schooler who is smart enough to get in without much money, but isn't a total nerd about it and is smart enough to be running his own porn site, crush brews with the chill rich dudes, shit on the one's who weren't respecting his shit, and making all the hotties get wet. When the Spider Bites him it was "And the Messiah is... Peter Parker." Because now he's a world class athlete on top of everything else.

The only thing that would snap him out of it is the whole Uncle Ben died bit. I mean honestly the "Friendly Neighborhood Spiderman" was sarcasm. He's like "For future reference the guy swinging from rooftop to rooftop like a 6 foot arachnid is in fact not about to rape you. Unless you're into that."

But obviously they'll never put my peter parker on the silver screen. But I can always hope that my own fan fiction version is the true Spider Man.

07-12-2010, 05:51 PM
This rebooting thing is 100% bullshit and most people know this. The first three movies are great, in my opinion. The main problem was that Sony pictures had their own silly ideas while Sam Raimi had great ideas. Unfortunately, Sony wasn't happy with Sam Raimi's ideas. So, since Sony pictures and Sam couldn't agree on certain things, dickheads decided to reboot the whole fucking franchise like dumbasses!

Sam Raimi did an excellent job with Spider-man and everyone knows this. Spider-man 4 would've been epic. Fuck this reboot and FUCK Sony!

Dr. Simon Hurt
07-12-2010, 06:34 PM
^^fuck sam raimi...he sucked all the fun out of the stories, made the soap opera elements way too prominent, gave us a humorless spidey and fucked up by making every villain intrinsically linked to peter parker.

hopefully the origin is just recapped via a montage during the credits.

07-14-2010, 11:29 AM
I understand that people want superhero movies to follow the comic books but I'm sorry to say that isn't going to happened all of the time. Again, I thought that Sam Raimi did a great job with Spider-man. It's silly to reboot Spider-man so fast. But hey the name Spider-man brings in money in the box office so....

This is bullshit!

07-14-2010, 12:19 PM
Look, they could make a five super hero movies a year and get people to see them if they had a plot, decent actors, and special effects that aren't cheap or distractingly over the top. Everyone likes spider man, and the last one didn't do it for me. Spider Man came out in 2002 and even at the tender age of 10 I thought it was pretty shitty even though everyone raved about it. But I still saw 2 and 3 because let's be honest, I like Spiderman. Did I think they abused the source material? Yup. Did I think that Tobey Maguire is a pussy, and that everyone else was an equally shitty actor? Yup. Did I think Daredevil was better (shudders) yup. I thought a movie starring Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner was a better movie. Why? Bullseye was comparably a gritty ass legitimate comic book villain. Green Goblin? Why can't they just retcon him out with Hobgoblin who was legimately scary and insane... It's not like anyone would get pissed if you combine the three goblins into one legitimate The Joker level villain. Heath Ledger was a good actor, but I think his script as Joker was what did it for me. Shit was dark, a little bit crazy, and worse, kind of made sense...

I don't care if it's true to book because the early stuff was explicitly written for kids, but I want something with a certain feeling when it's over. It's like you don't see them choosing the riddler or penguin for Batman, they chose the realest grittiest villains for him. Ra's Al Ghul is gritty. Joker? Scary. Two face? Tragic, gritty, and bad ass in an evil version of Dirty Harry way.

07-14-2010, 03:55 PM
Am I the only one who loves Spider-man 3? Honestly, I thought it was a great movie. The ending was sad, though, but good. I remember on May 4, 2007 after I saw it in theaters, I felt great...and I wait seven days to see it again. I believe that if Sony Pictures would've allowed Sam Raimi to continue the franchise, Spider-man 4 would've been just a good, maybe even better.

Again, this weak ass reboot is bullshit.

i like the skinnier look. i think this will be cool. i have a feeling it will be darker too. just a hunch. but i need more wise cracks and lets see some more nerdiness out of P.P. too.

if dude uses his "the Soc. Net." character as a base to build off of he'll be on point for Spidey.

01-13-2011, 07:35 PM
I haven't seen this guy in anything but looking at the pic he seems like a fine choice, I can see him as peter parker.

cosign all of this

Maybe your nerd levels differ from mine but Tobey Maguire pretty much nailed it as a complete and utter nerd, so much so that it seemed even lamer that he remained that way long after gaining spider powers.

spidey is supposed to be a genius right?

parker was on par with tony stark in terms of intelligence he just didn't have the bank account. when i say nerd i mean lets see him make some shit or not be so fucking slow to figure out what's going on like the last series.

like when he found the piece of symbiote...why did he need to take it in to someone else. true to form spidey woulda snuck into the lab after hrs and analyzed it himself.

see where i'm going with this?

01-13-2011, 10:44 PM
Ok, so you want to see more of Peter Parker the scientist, I see now. Well I suppose that is something to see more of but for me definately he needs to be more cocky as Spider-Man, the previous flicks really failed at delivering that.

Dr. Simon Hurt
01-13-2011, 11:31 PM
^ya he wasn't cocky or funny at all in the raimi films; in the comics he's sarcastic and jokey even as peter parker to an extent (as well as being neurotic and paranoid)...hopefully the screenwriters of the new film have a better handle on parker's character...i'd really like to see something along the lines of bendis' take on spidey (ultimate spider-man is one of the only comics that will actually make you laugh at loud and still kick ass), but we'll see what happens.

I'm thinking this picture is after he caught the burglar/uncle ben's murderer, and this is the underdevloped spidey suit from his wrestling days (lol)

01-13-2011, 11:42 PM
pretty elaborate for a wrestlin suit eloels.

Dr. Simon Hurt
01-13-2011, 11:48 PM

this is what i meant, but you're right that was after he wrestled that guy

Uncle Steezo
01-14-2011, 12:08 AM
yeah that was spideys Xfactor- he'd humiliate you while fucking you up which made you mad which got you fucked up even worse.

01-22-2011, 06:55 PM
i like the texture of the suit much more on point, however the hand detail in the costume seems weird, like the red/blue shape

01-24-2011, 09:06 AM
i want the eyes to be big and exaggerated on the mask

01-31-2011, 12:29 AM
more new pics

Dr. Simon Hurt
01-31-2011, 08:10 PM
^I think it looks pretty fucking sweet, especially the pictures where he's crouched down. The purist in me is pissed about the minor changes made to the costume because they're completely superfluous, and also the costume is probably one of the most well designed superhero costumes ever, and looks just as good now as it did in the 60s.

02-01-2011, 08:37 PM

Notice how they blacked out his feet so we can't tell if he is going to sport those shitty looking silver shoes that he was shown wearing in those spy pics.

Dr. Simon Hurt
05-24-2011, 10:54 PM
Probably, if you're in the midst of superhero battles...his camera is usually stashed on his costume or webbed up at some crazy angle, under an awning or something that no one would be able to get with a camera phone.

05-24-2011, 11:19 PM
he has a much more practical job now in the comics eloels.

Itís a combination of studio shots and movie stills ó scans were already making the rounds online ó featuring Garfield as Peter Parker, Emma Stone as Mary Jane Watson, Sally Field and Martin Sheen as Aunt May and Uncle Ben, and Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt Connors, aka the Lizard.
Word is now that the first trailer for the Marc Webb-directed film will debut next week, ahead of Captain America: The First Avenger.

Spider-Man’ director Marc Webb feels a ‘responsiblity to reinvent’ the hero
July 18, 2011 | 6:14 p.m.
http://latimesherocomplex.files.wordpress.com/2011/07/marc-webb.jpg?w=600&h=400Marc Webb (Jaimie Trueblood )

The Columbia Pictures film “The Amazing Spider-Man” reaches theaters on July 3, 2012, with a lot of history to live up to — the trilogy of Spider-Man movies directed by Sam Raimi brought in close to $3.5 billion in worldwide box office and keyed billions more in home video, toys, licensing and video games. No one is more aware of that than Marc Webb, the 36-year-old music-video veteran who made his feature directorial debut with “(500) Days of Summer” in 2009 and was the surprise choice to direct this start-from-scratch version of the hero with new star Andrew Garfield. Webb and Garfield begin their conversation with fans on Friday at Comic-Con International, and the filmmaker spoke with our Geoff Boucher about the high stakes.
GB: There’s so much history for this character, on the page and on the screen. Where do you start?
http://latimesherocomplex.files.wordpress.com/2011/07/spider-man.jpeg?w=373&h=512"The Amazing Spider-Man" (Columbia Pictures)

MW: I feel we have certain obligations to the iconography of Spider-Man, which is based mostly in the comics. The other thing is Spider-Man has a lot of different incarnations in the comics. While there are certain mainstays — a kid who gets bitten by a spider, he’s an outsider, the death of his Uncle Ben helps endow [him] with the mentality of a hero — those things remain the same but there’s also room for interpretation. He’s been around since the 1960s. The wealth of material here — whether it’s story or character — is really profound but I also feel it’s my responsibility to reinvent it in some ways.
GB: How will we see that reinvention manifest?
MW: Peter Parker is a science whiz. If you look back to the early Stan Lee and Steve Ditko comics, he’s a nerd with big glasses. The idea of what a nerd is has changed in 40 or 50 years. Nerds are running the world. Andrew Garfield made a movie [called "The Social Network"] about it. Nerds are no longer pariahs and knowing how to write computer code is longer a [mocked] quality. What was important in those early comics was this notion that Peter Parker is an outsider and how we define that in a contemporary context. That, I think, was one of the challenges for us — getting Peter Parker’s outsider status to be current. Peter Parker is a real kid. He’s not a billionaire. He’s not an alien. He’s a kid who gets picked on and gets shoved to the outside. The 90-pound weakling, that’s who Spider-Man is when he gets bit. So much of the DNA of the character is the fact that he was a kid when he got bit. He is imperfect, he is immature and has a bit of a punk rock instinct. In his soul he’s still a 90-pound weakling even after [the transformative bite].
GB: I noticed the commentary from some fans that, in the early photos released, Garfield is not ”heroic” enough or perhaps bulky enough to be a hero. Those are clearly people who never saw Ditko’s version of the character…
MW: Andrew went through an incredibly intense training. When you see the before and then see the after — he is not a weakling. He is a lithe character. We wanted to make it more about agility than this sort of Atlas-like power figure. He’s not Superman. He was a unique figure in Marvel Comics and all of comics. He was this kid, too, and we want to keep that consistent even to some extent when the costume is on. I love a lot of the “Ultimate Spider-Man” artwork and story lines, there’s a lot more of an adolescent, playful quality. And I think that’s a big part of Spider-Man universe and hasn’t really been explored cinematically before.
GB: What other differences will we see between your film and Raimi’s trilogy?
MW: One of the things we tried to do was keep the stunts more grounded physically and that was a huge challenge because you have a character whose abilities are superhuman. How do you do that in a way that’s convincing and real? We had a really great stunt team, the Armstrongs, who were vigilant in the creation — with Andrew — of a physical language that felt grounded but also extraordinary. We spent months and months and months developing rigs so he could swing in a way that wasn’t computer-generated. Obviously there’s going to be enhancements and CG [sequences], but it’s based in a physical reality and that’s a new technique [for this film brand]. When you walk out of the theater, I want the world you see to resemble what you saw on the screen. Part of the joy of cinema you make the impossible look real. I wanted it to be more grounded and more realistic and that went for the emotion of the scenes, the physical action and wardrobe. It’s less based in Steve Ditko world and probably closer visually and more influenced by “Ultimate Spider-Man” but it is also very much a world of our own devising.
http://latimesherocomplex.files.wordpress.com/2010/11/andrew-garfield-spider-man-marvel-sony1.jpg?w=600&h=384Andrew Garfield (Sony)

[I]GB: Villains are just as important as the good guys in this contemporary superhero cinema and, arguably, more important. What can you say about your villain?
MW: I have to dodge that question. I can tell you this much — it’s a new villain, something we haven’t seen before and villains help define the story in a very specific way. Marvel villains — and Spider-Man villains in particular– are rich and complicated and interesting and Rhys has done just a fantastic job in translating that and there will be a lot of new things to explore for the fans. They’re tragic in the Greek sense, meaning it’s a competing idea of what’s good. They’re not just guys, they’re people trying to do good or to do the right thing and on that journey that effort becomes subverted or manipulated or it sours. It makes for a much more compelling adversary. In the Marvel Universe, traditionally, the villains have more texture. This is open to interpretation because there are so many incarnations of the villains over the years and it varies, but the [tradition is there]. Tom Stoppard was on Charlie Rose’s show once and he said what makes great drama is competing ideas of what is good, and there’s no better mythological version of that than what you see in Marvel.

[I]GB: The Raimi films were huge moneymakers and remain relatively fresh in the public’s mind. Is stepping out of that shadow your biggest challenge?
MW: We’ll have to see. The truth is I don’t know. For me, it’s enough of a reinvention that it is a different Peter Parker. In the comics there’s just ongoing sagas. Why can’t we do that cinematically? What the truth was: I like the other movies and I was a little bit skeptical but then I asked myself if I wanted to see [this new story and interpretation] and the answer was yes. I was interested in that universe and I believe I have something to say that’s different enough to be worth my time. I think there’s a lot to explore as far as the adolescent quality of this superhero and just seeing him in high school again gives you so much to mine in terms of behavior and story and the contemporary mythological context of high school and what it is.
GB: Is Comic-Con a make-or-break moment for you?
MW: Legends of Hall H — people should write songs about it. A lot of our credibility is based on fan perception in some way. I’m really excited to connect with the fans. I feel like we’ve been a little bit under the radar in terms of our communication. I think it’s a great way to announce the new qualities that we’re putting out there and just connect with the audience in a way that we haven’t before.

this kid has to be a better peter parker than tobey was. he just never really looked the part. this kid already looks way more like spidey/peter.
and no fuckin kristin dunst as mary jane getting kidnapped for the 7th fucking time is a good thing too.

im hoping this movie puts the rami trilogy to bed.

and the lizard as the villian is another plus.

Toby never did it for me, and where was the wisecracks Spidey is known for that he uses to help him get the edge in fights, Raimi's trilogy completely failed in that aspect. All I remember was "here's your chaaange" when fighting Ock in a bank in SM2 which was not funny and lame. I would actually like to see a film that has Parker dreaming about the future being older with that older Spiderman being Jim Carey doing all those crazy stances and shit in the Spidey outfit cracking jokes while fighting enemies. Maybe have some one help him see the future for a minute in a movie for that sequence but............I know it will never happen, lol

Oh yeah, here's a trailer still working

Spider-Man" villain Ifans arrested at Comic-Con

SAN DIEGO (Reuters) - British actor Rhys Ifans, who portrays the villain Lizard in the upcoming Hollywood movie "The Amazing Spider-Man," was arrested and cited for battery at the pop culture gathering Comic-Con on Friday evening.

"He was abusive, belligerent and aggressive, and shoved a female security guard," San Diego police spokeswoman Lt. Andra Brown said in a statement on Saturday.

Brown told Reuters a member of Ifans' "entourage" did not have proper identification to enter Comic-Con, a gathering of science-fiction fans and comic book lovers. for a promotional event to tout the upcoming "Spider-Man" movie.

Ifans used his hand to push his way past security, Brown said. He cursed the staff, hurled insults at the United States and loudly complained: "I don't live here," she said.

The police spokeswoman added that Ifans' breath "smelled like alcohol" but he was not cited for public drunkenness.

The guard who was pushed, however, made a citizen's arrest, leading San Diego police to issue Ifans a citation for misdemeanor battery. He was released, and the San Diego City Attorney will decide whether to take further action.

Sony Pictures, the studio behind the "Spider-Man" movies, issued a statement to showbiz website TheWrap saying Ifans "deeply regrets the incident."

The movie is a big-budget, special effects Hollywood flick, and the studio will have a lot of money riding on Spidey (played by Andrew Garfield) when he and Ifans' Lizard crawl into theaters next year.

Ifans has starred in numerous films such as "Notting Hill," "Little Nicky" and "Pirate Radio" during a career that has spanned two decades.
