    Default Andrew Garfield to star in 'Spider-Man' reboot

    -Link-


    On selecting Garfield, director Marc Webb said, “Though his name may be new to many, those who know this young actor’s work understand his extraordinary talents. He has a rare combination of intelligence, wit, and humanity. Mark my words, you will love Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker.”

    Commenting on the announcement, Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment, and Matt Tolmach, President of Columbia Pictures said, “Spider-Man is a classic superhero -- a young man who balances his responsibility to serve humanity and crush evil with the shyness and normalcy of someone struggling to find himself. The role demands an extraordinary actor. You need someone who can magically transform himself from Peter Parker into Spider-Man. An actor who will depict the vulnerability of youth and the strength and confidence of a legendary figure at the same moment. We have found that actor in Andrew Garfield. From the first time we saw him in the upcoming film The Social Network, to his glorious screen test, which floored all of us, we knew that we had found our new Peter Parker.”

    Garfield previously appeared in Robert Redford's "Lions For Lambs" and Terry Gilliam's "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus." He recently starred in IFC Films' "Red Riding" trilogy. He next stars in Mark Romanek's "Never Let Me Go," which Fox Searchlight will now release on September 15.

    He beat out a number of Hollywood's most talented young actors for the coveted role, including Jamie Bell, Josh Hutcherson, Aaron Johnston, Anton Yelchin, Frank Dillane and more.

    Never heard of the guy, really don't know what to think about this move.
    All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

    Speaking of re-boots, I think LOTR needs a Michael Bay re-boot.

    "Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

    Dude, the last Spider Man was three years ago. It was a massive box office draw. And they're already 'rebooting' it?

    At least with Batman it'd been what, eight years? And the last couple sucked and didn't draw 'that' huge.

    Granted, it'll be 5 years and the last one sucked. But it just seems like it's a little too soon. And they had planned to release Part 4 only a year prior to this target date.

    Hopefully it's awesome like Dark Knight.

    I've been saying this since I heard about the reboot months ago. It makes absolutely no sense to reboot now. When the Hulk franchise was rebooted, it was definitely needed since the first one sucked balls. But the recent Spidey trilogy is a very good trilogy, and still pretty fresh in everyone's minds.

    i really didnt like the spider man movies and im not sure a reboot will change what a lot of people dont like.

    imo, the only thing cool i know about spider man is the costume and abilities. my problem is peter parker. i have a hard time liking a dweeb. maybe the real peter parker isnt a dweeb. never read the comics

    That guy doesn't look like Spider-Man. He looks like the pencilneck geek who jerks off to the chicks that Spider-Man boffs.

    Tobey Maguire wasn't making anyone forget Bruce Willis either, but he is a superlative actor who brought a depth to the part to rival that of the original Peter Parker.

    What PP is, is a dyed-in-the-wool New Yorker; a guy who is as comfortable in the city of cities as anyone.

    What PP doesn't do is wear hipster doofus flannel shirts and highlight his hair.

    So the Reboot is going to be Spiderman: The High School Musical?

    I was never a fan of Spiderman as a kid, I grew up mostly a Batman fanatic in the world of superhero comics. I will say though I found the first two movies good enough to be entertaining, but not "great". The third movie however, was just so damn god awful. The emo Peter Parker scene made me walk out of the theater the first time I saw it. I didn't even care how it ended, even knowing it was probably the last Spiderman installment of that series.

    That said, is a reboot necessary? I really dont think so.

    That scene was arguably gayer than Brokeback Mountain

    I guess we're going to have to agree to disagree because myself and a lot of people loved the second one.

    I don't know what more anyone would want in a Hulk movie. They incorporated alot of things that fans wanted to see in that movie. How anyone could complain about it is beyond me.

    arent they rebooting cause Toby doesnt want to play Spidey anymore? Plus Dunst was HORRIBLE as MJ.
    Plus Sony owns the rights not Marvel. Hopefully they dont bring back the Goblin just to milk the cow for cash.

    And i can see this actor as Spidey in his HS days.

    I know I loved it. I dont know what more you can ask for in a HULK movie. I guess naybe some more screen time for Hulk. I praythey end up putting him the avengers. I know Norton wants to reprise the role in them movie.

    On topic, I think the kid might be able to pull it off. I really liked Toby though and was sad he decided not to do a 4th.

    I guess I just didnt buy Ed Norton as the Hulk. I wasn't expecting Lou Ferrigno, but still...
