New Pics From ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’…Trailer Next Week?

20110716-094048.jpgMarvel is hoping that the ‘Spider-Man’ tank has some more gas in the tank after Sam Raimi, Tobey Maguire, and Kirsten Dunst’s incredibly successful run in ‘Spider-Man 1-3’.

Raimi, Maguire, Dunst, and many other cast members were signed on for ‘Spider-Man 4’, but when Raimi & Sony couldn’t come to an agreement in the storyline, he walked away from the film, and everyone else followed suit.

As a result, the producers nixed the idea of ‘Spider-Man 4’ and decided to reboot the franchise entirely with ‘The Amazing Spider-Man.’.

The Spidey franchise has now been placed in the hands of director Marc Webb, who directed ‘500 Days of Summer (RT: 87%/Metacritic: 76, One of the Tomato Monster’s favorites). Andrew Garfield, who was nominated for a Golden Globe in his last film for his supporting role in ‘The Social Network, will now step into the role of Peter Parker. Emma Stone, who also was nominated for a Globe in her last role in ‘Easy A’, will play Peter Parker’s love interest ‘Gwen Stacy’.

To add to the fun, SuperHeroHype is reporting that the first trailer for ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ will be attached to ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ in select theaters. Stay posted because there is always the chance that it could be released earlier than that online.

Also, Entertainment Weekly released some photos this week from the set of ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’. Enjoy!
