Amazing Spider Man: Fairy Tale for Adults
The highly-anticipated new movie The Amazing Spider-Man sees the entire series being revamped — or rebooted, as the term applies — essentially erasing the plot that existed in the last three Spider-Man movies. The Amazing Spider-Man will begin by explaining the origins of Spider-Man and outline Peter Parker’s childhood, following the development of his powers into his high school years. It will see Andrew Garfield star as Peter Parker, with Emma Stone as his love interest Gwen Stacy.
Andrew Garfield has given an impassioned speech about how the character of Spider-Man saved his life as a child.
I needed Spidey in my life when I was a kid and he gave me hope. Peter Parker has inspired me to feel stronger. He made me, Andrew, braver.”
He also said he respects Tobey Maguire as an actor and that when he first saw Maguire play Spider-Man he ‘was blown away by his interpretation.’ After taking the role Garfield studied spiders’ movements and tried to incorporate them as much as he could, saying Parker is ‘a boy/spider in terms of how he moves, and not just in the suit.’ On taking over the role Garfield said:
I see it as a massive challenge in many ways…. To make it authentic. To make the character live and breathe in a new way. The audience already has a relationship with many different incarnations of the character. I do, as well. I’m probably going to be the guy in the movie theater shouting abuse at myself. But I have to let that go. No turning back. And I wouldn’t want to”.
When first wearing the Spider-Man costume Garfield admitted to shedding tears and trying to imagine ‘a better actor in the suit’.
Emma Stone described her character as ‘a daddy’s girl’. She dyed her hairblonde for the role of the character, which happens to be her natural hair color even though she is better recognized with her notorious red hair. She felt that she had a responsibility to educate herself on Spider-Man, admitting that she did not know much about the character. After her role she expressed interest in Spider-Man, the character she played and the rest of the Marvel Universe that she was going to be involved with. Stone also had this to say about the fans who would be protective of Spider-Man and the character she plays:
There’s a part of me that really wants to please people that love Spider-Man or Gwen Stacy and want her to be done justice. I hope they’ll give me license to interpret her my way. But that fan base, I’m one of them, so I completely understand why they would be judgmental of certain things.”
Rhys Ifans portrays Dr Curt Connors, a scientist who turns into a reptilian humanoid monster. He described the character that he is playing not as an evil incarnated villain:
Curt Conners is by no means an evil villain. He’s not like the Batman villains, like the Joker, who are the embodiment of evil. Curtis Connors is a great man who makes a bad decision. That’s the whole magic of the Spider-Man idea. These people are the embodiment of our flaws and our desires that lead to tragedy.”
Commenting on the technology used to bring his second character Lizard to life, Ifans continued:
I had a green suit on, and then this cardboard head, and these big claws… Each and every time you see the Lizard, the technology is so advanced now that when the Lizard’s eyes move, they’re my eyes. If I frown or show any emotion, they’re my emotions. That’s how spectacularly advanced technology is. Ifans also said that he voiced the Lizard as well explaining, “I’m sure the voice will be toyed with in the eventual edits, but when I was shooting the CGI moments, when I wasn’t actually human, when I was Lizard, I looked like a crash-test dummy in a green leotard thing. There were many moments when I had to speak to Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone as the Lizard.”
The release will hit theaters in the U.S. on July 3, 2012, according to the movie’s official website. Other countries will either receive it the same day or after the U.S. release, with the exception of Japan, where the movie will be released on June 30.
