The Amazing Spider-man To Uncover Peter Parker's Past


The director of the new Spider-Man movie, Marc Webb, has been speaking to MTV News about the forthcoming comic book re-boot and has revealed that the new movie will look into Peter Parker's family background. In true Hollywood blockbuster fashion, of course, the story will not be resolved in this first movie but will be dragged out across another sequel, at least.
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," Marc revealed, adding, "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." Evidently conscious of the fans' attachment to the story and the versions that have gone before, Webb says "There are elements that we were very conscious of 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."
The Amazing Spider-Man is scheduled for release in July 2012. Andrew Garfield has been cast as Spider-Man, with Emma Stone playing the role of Gwen Stacy. Martin Sheen, Rhys Ifans and Sally Field will also star.
