It’s not official scenes or anything, but the first real poster for ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ hit the web yesterday. It shows Peter Parker perched precariously over a spindly shadow. (Sorry… Anything having to do with Spider-Man is instantly narrated by Stan Lee and his alliterative dialogue in my head.) The tagline reads “The Untold Story”. I’m thinking this might be a bit of an overstatement since the origin of Spider-Man has been told countless times. So, unless Webb has some Christopher Nolan style tricks up his sleeve, I am merely expecting a fun retelling (yet again) of Spider-Man’s origins and a battle against the Lizard.
And from the film set, Just Jared released some images and video of Garfield doing some stunt work for the film. Garfield was in a harness and flipping through the air as he filmed a scene in which Peter Parker dodges an oncoming car, flips into the air, and lands atop a lamp post.
Of the stunts, director Webb has stated that he intends to do as much of the FX as possible using practical stunts instead of CGI’ing the entire film. And, as you can see from these images, Andrew Garfield has insisted on doing as many of his own stunts as is possible. He’s obviously not too frightened to be swinging from a cable some thirty-odd feet in the air. I mean… look at that cheeky Peter Parker grin.
Here’s some video footage of filming of the same scene. You can head over to Just Jared to check out the rest of the photo set.
Finally, in an interview with MTV’s Splash Page, actor Rhys Ifans, who plays the monsterous Lizard in ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ gave us an example of his best Lizard voice. As Ifans points out, his voice will probably be enhanced in post but I think it sounds pretty darn spot on as it is!
‘Amazing Spider-Man’ is directed by Mark Webb. It stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Sally Field, Martin Sheen, and Dennis Leary. It hits theaters on July 3, 2012.
