The Amazing Spider-Man will be the first of three films [30th June 2012]

The Amazing Spider-Man is performing well at the box office and scoring widespread critical acclaim, so much so that Sony have announced it will be the first instalment in a new trilogy of Spidey films.

Despite predictions that the wall-crawler would struggle in a summer dominated by The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises, The Amazing Spider-Man netted $35m on its opening day in the States, giving it the biggest Tuesday opening of all time.

With experts estimating that the film will hit the $150m mark by the end of the weekend, it should come as no surprise that Sony have decided to bite the bullet and give the okay to a further two films in the franchise.

"The Amazing Spider-Man is the first instalment in a movie trilogy that will explore how our fave hero's journey was shaped by the disappearance of his parents," says a new post on the film's official Facebook page.Source: www.totalfilm.com

The Amazing Spider-Man to tie in with Venom spin-off? [11th June 2012]

The Amazing Spider-Man might have a villain of its own in the shape of The Lizard, but according to producer Matt Tolmach, the film will also share a thread of continuity with Sony's other big Spidey project, the upcoming spin-off for Venom.

"I'm trying to say to you without giving anything away is hopefully all these worlds will live together in peace someday," said Tolmach at a recent press conference for The Amazing Spider-Man. "Look for the worlds to make sense with one another."

Whether or not any overt references to Venom are made in The Amazing Spider-Man remains to be seen, but it makes sense that the studio would attempt to think ahead, in view of a potential crossover movie. Meanwhile, Avi Arad has dropped a few more hints as to what we can expect from the Venom film itself.

"It's an Eddie Brock story," says Arad.

"We want to be as close to the comics as possible, especially in Eddie Brock's story. But again, pseudo-science is becoming science. All these tidbits about webs, artificial webs, is a huge industry now."

"Spider webs have unique qualities that will be huge for communications, fibers, and so forth," he continues. "So we have taken the approach that we want to make this huge amazing movie about Eddie."Source: www.totalfilm.com

The Amazing Spider-Man will change Spidey's origin story [11th April 2012]

The Amazing Spider-Man has made much of its telling of "the untold story" in its press materials, and director Marc Webb has revealed that a slightly different origin story will play out across his movie and its potential sequels.

"I wanted to give the audience something new, so that started off with getting underneath the parents' story, which will unfold over probably a few movies," Webb told MTV. "We don't totally wrap up that story in this first movie. It's sort of an ongoing mystery. That was something that was interesting to me."

The death of Peter Parker's parents was never really dealt with in Sam Raimi's adaptation, but according to Webb, it was one of the key elements that drew him to the film.

"There are elements that we were very conscious of," he says, "but it all emanated from [the idea of] this kid who got left behind by his parents many, many years before. I thought that was interesting enough for me to explore."

"This is probably a reveal," he continues, "but there is no wrestling match in this movie. The character is evolving in a different way. It's about finding a balance between iconic elements of the Spider-Man mythology. Uncle Ben's death transforms him emotionally, but it happens in a different way."Source: www.totalfilm.com

Spidey reboot officially titled The Amazing Spider-Man [15th February 2011]

The Spider-Man reboot has finally been given an official title and it's… The Amazing Spider-Man!

After months of being variously referred to as Spider-Man 4 and (our personal favourite) The Untitled Spider-Man Reboot Directed By Marc Webb, Sony have at last settled on that comic-linking title.

Which won't come as a huge surprise to comic readers of the world, and probably means they'll title any sequels with similar superlatives (The Spectacular Spider-Man for number two, anyone?).

Not only that, but Sony have also let loose a second official shot of Garfield (we assume) in the Spidey suit, this one now complete with that iconic mask.

And it's another departure from Raimi's films, with those enlarged yellow eyes far more slanting than those adorning Tobey Maguire's outfit.

Still, we like them. They're in keeping with the rest of the hyper-stylish suit, and give our favourite webby hero a dark anime look.

First image of Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man online [13th January 2011]

Only days ago Andrew Garfield was snapped on set of the Spider-Man reboot, but he was in his Peter Parker garb then.

Now the first official shot of the actor in the Spidey suit has hit the web, and it looks pretty impressive…

Garfield's slight frame lends itself to the fact that this redo is going back to Parker's younger days at high-school.

The trademark red-and-blue suit is instantly recognisable, though it's had some subtle design upgrades.

For starters, the material looks to have a tougher, more rubbery texture than the lycra number that Maguire donned, and there's less emphasis on the webbing.

The colours appear a little darker, but that could be down to the lighting of the shot, and there's less red on the torso.

This image makes it look as if Parker has taken a bit of a battering, but the context of the scene is currently a mystery.

Also impressive? Garfield seems to have got the angst teen look down pat.

First pictures of Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker in Spider-Man [5th January 2011]

Andrew Garfield had a fine 2010, what with a career making appearance in The Social Network, being cast as Spider-Man and recieving rave reviews for the upcoming Never Let Me Go.

On top of all that, we crowned Garfield 'Hottest Actor' at our 2010 Hotlist Awards.

Now it seems his 2011 has kicked-off in style, as Sony have released the first pictures of Garfield as Peter Parker, filming a kiss scene with Emma Stone's Gwen Stacy.

The pictures were taken during filming yesterday, January 4, at a stadium in Los Angeles.

Still no sign of the iconic suit, but hopefully it won't be long now...Source: www.totalfilm.com

Marc Webb's Spider-Man reboot nabs another villain [5th December 2010]

Director Marc Webb is continuing to fill out the cast of his 3D Spider-Man reboot ahead of the movie's impending shoot.

Heat Vision Blog have broken the news that Irrfan Khan, best known for playing a police inspector in Slumdog Millionaire, is in discussions to appear as an unspecified villain in the movie.

Annie Parisse (Law & Order, and more recently The Pacific) is in talks to play Khan's villain's wife.

Roger Dodger's Campbell Scott and Julianne Nicholson (Law & Order: Criminal Intent) are being lined up to play Peter Parker's parents. It's not yet known if they'll be appearing in flashback, prologue or some other guise.

The as-yet-untitled reboot is due for release in 2012, and already has Andrew Garfield as the webslinger, and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy. Rhys Ifans was the first villain to be cast, and he's playing Dr Curt Connors (AKA The Lizard).

Parker already has some adoptive parents lined up in the form of Martin Sheen and Sally Field.Source: www.totalfilm.com

Emma Stone discusses Spider-Man prep work [25th November 2010]

Emma Stone has been talking about prepping for the upcoming Spider-Man shoot, and it seems she's as excited about it as everybody else."Today I went and did hair tests," she tells MTV, "because I have blonde hair now since Gwen has blonde hair. My natural hair is blonde, so it's kind of nice. I looked in the mirror and said, 'Oh my god, it's me again, it's been so long!'"It's not all about the hair, though, with rehearsals in the offing, and those all-important visual effects being organised before the cameras roll."We're finalising the visual stuff," Stone continues. "And I think we'll start actually rehearsing, because we start shooting in two weeks. Andrew [Garfield] and I went and learned about science yesterday.Source: www.totalfilm.com

Spider-Man casts Sally Field as Aunt May? [5th November 2010]

Martin Sheen was drafted in to play Uncle Ben in the Spider-Man reboot mere hours ago, and he's already got himself an on-screen wife! Yes, he's that smooth.

Heat Vision are reporting that Sally Field has been talking with director Marc Webb about a part in his web-slinging reboot, and who better for her to play than Aunt May?

As anybody with even the most basic Spidey knowledge will know, Aunt May is Peter Parker's guardian, a kindly fusspot who is left widowed when her husband, Uncle Ben, is murdered during a botched robbery.

Uncle Ben's passing, of course, triggers Parker's transformation into Spidey - though Webb could play with this lore for his re-do, especially as we've already seen it played out on-screen in Sam Raimi's films.

So, Field as Aunt May? With Sheen, Rhys Ifans as The Lizard and hot ticket Emma Stone as love interest Gwen Stacy, Webb's effectively spitting in the faces of reboot naysayers without actually getting phlegmy about it. We're liking these odds. A lot...Source: www.totalfilm.com

Martin Sheen is Uncle Ben in Spider-Man reboot [4th November 2010]
