A first glimpse of Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man
Wednesday 19 January 2011
The upcoming reboot of the Spider-Man franchise has released an image of Andrew Garfield (
The Social Network) from the set of the film clad in a new shiny version of the character's signature red and blue tights.
After three installments, Garfield replaced Tobey Maguire in the role as Peter Parker/Spider-Man for the yet untitled prequel of the Marvel Comics superhero's story. Director Marc Webb (
500 Days of Summer) has taken over the series from Sam Raimi.
The English actor was considered an off-beat choice, having been best known for his role in low-budget dramas. He beat out other up-and-coming actors such as Josh Hutcherson and Jamie Bell for the coveted role.
The cast of the film includes Emma Stone ( Easy A, Zombieland) as love interest Gwen Stacy, Rhys Ifans as the villainous Lizard, as well as Martin Sheen, Sally Field and Campbell Scott as the Parkers.
Spider-Man flies into theaters on July 3, 2012 in 3D.
