Amazing Spider-Man Details Revealed

Amazing Spider-Man Press Conference in Japan.

Sony Pictures and director Marc Webb decided to shed some more light yesterday on The Amazing Spider-Man. The details were revealed by way of a Tokyo press conference in which Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone attended and answered questions. Producers Avi Arad and Matthew Tolmach were also there. Check out the video down below courtesy of SuperHeroHype.

Avid Arad answered described the arrival of Dr. Connors and his relationship with Peter and Gwen by saying "We introduce our villain, Dr. Connors. And in the great tradition of Marvel, Dr. Connors is going to be connected to Peter Parker and, in our case even more interesting, to Gwen Stacy. Right there, the challenge of having to deal with a villain who is a mentor and the only one who you can look at and say, 'So what really happened to my dad?' That's a very hard person to fight."

After some special footage was screened at the event, Garfield says:

"As you can see, a lot of the stunts are practical and grounded in reality," he explained. "That was something that Marc, the director, really wanted to make sure happened in this movie to set it apart from previous ones... I would exhaust myself every day and get into near-death experiences every hour on the hour... I collaborated with [the stunt team] not only on the big stunt set-pieces but also on what happens to Peter’s body when he gets bitten. What happens to his DNA and how that effects the way he moves and the way he interacts with objects. The idea that he has spider DNA running in his system. What that will do to his sense of space. What that will do to the sensitivity of his skin. To have an opportunity to play in that forum with creative and talented people was a real opportunity and gift."

The Amazing Spider-Man will open up in theaters in Japan on June 30, 2012 and in the states on July 3, 2012.

 I have to say - I'm really looking forward to this, but would like to see some kind of new footage or trailer though.

 So, why does Japan get the earlier release?

 The light hint toward less CGI is sparking a bit of my interest...

But for the rest of it: "La dee Da dee Do, Ploppy ploppy Poo"

This movie will bomb just like Green Lantern did. This could have been done without recycling the origin story, that will turn alot of people off right off the bat. Another strike against it is the choice of Garfield as Spiderman/Peter Parker most of the buzz for him is mostly meh to downright negative.

aaahh.. that awkward moment of giving a 10 minute answer and then waiting for the translator to translate that WHOLE thing as the cast looks around and twiddle their thumbs....

I'm really looking forward to this.  I'm not sure if it will be as good as the Rami SM's but they seem to be trying to go in a different direction, which I respect.

 Hmmm are they worried?   Is there a bad buzz?  and more importantly WHEN IS THIS KID GOING TO GET A HAIRCUT!!!??

The only way I am interested in a new Spiderman movie if it goes back to Marvel. Same with the X-Men. I did not pay to see that either. I am not giving them my cash. I hope this will be the train wreck that makes it so Sony losses the rights to Spiderman. I doubt is though. It will most likely make boat loads of cash just like the last X-Men movie did.  That way in a later Avengers movies they could have Wolverine and Spiderman join the Avengers.  Gee, just like in the comics.

Just like they should have had Logan be part of the Howling Commandos in Captain America.  Logan was the most bad ass of them besides Cap.  Though he most likely killed more Nazis than Cap did.

Japan gets it first because it's made by Sony... Pure and simple!
