Sony Pictures has updated their official site for Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-Man”, and included are some nice goodies including character wallpapers for the film’s main players, along with some new images of Andrew Garfield and company doing, well, stuff.
And then there’s this new, official storyline for the reboot:
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.
So yeah, looks like Peter’s parents will definitely figure much more prominently into his Spider-Man heroics than they were in the Raimi films. We didn’t even meet them in the previous trilogy, after all.
Starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Denis Leary, Martin Sheen, Sally Fields, Julianne Nicholson, Campbell Scott, Rhys Ifan, Irrfan Khan, Annie Parisse, Chris Zylka, and directed by Webb.
