The latest posters of the Andrew Garfield-Emma Stone starrer The Amazing Spider-Man are out. Each of the two posters released shows the arachnid vigilanté guarding the city, as the skyline reflects in eyes.
What gets missed at first is the superhero's slashed chest, the sign of a war-beaten but resilient hero.
In the remake, the character of Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) searches for the reason for his parent’s disappearance during his childhood.
His pursuit brings him face to face with his dad’s old partner, Dr Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans), who transforms into the villainous Lizard.
With the new film, Spider Man gets a new love interest too. Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), takes on actor Kirsten Dunst’s character, Mary Jane, from the previous films.
“Gwen falls in love with Peter Parker, whereas I think Mary Jane falls in love with Spider-Man,” says Stone.
The 28-year-old actor said wearing the red and blue skin-tight costume was irritating.
"It's made of something that is designed to make you irritated. I don't know what the material name is, but that's the description underneath," Garfield said.
The actor, who is dating his Spiderman co-star Emma Stone, said that he actually wore nothing but his birth suit under the superhero getup.
Actor Andrew Garfield was also apparently terrified of playing Spider Man.
“I’m terrified,” says Garfield, adding that taking on the role of the teenage crime fighter and comic book character was daunting, because of the responsibility for portraying someone who is loved by so many people.
He says, “It’s overwhelming to represent this symbol. Because that’s all I am, the guy in the suit. And before, it was Tobey (Maguire)..next time hopefully it will be a half-Hispanic/half African-American actor.”
The film is scheduled to hit theatres on July 3.
