Amazing Spider-Man: Official Site Launch Reveals New Images and Character Profiles
12.15.11 by BJSprecher
Spider-Man fans may not be getting the same kind of "present" as Batman fans this holiday season, what with a 6-minute prologue to director Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises running before select IMAX prints of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, but at least Sony is dishing out some new goodies via the official website for director Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man. The site just went live and it contains the trailer and all previously-released still images from the movie, as well as several new still images, set photos and desktop wallpapers. The site also includes a new story synopsis — that calls Amazing "the first in a series" of new Spider-Man movies — and descriptions of the characters played by Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans and Denis Leary.
Like most teenagers his age, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he came to be the person he is today. In his journey to put the pieces of his past together he uncovers a secret that his father held... a secret that will ultimately shape his destiny as Spider-Man. This is the first in a series of movies that tells a different side of the Peter Parker story. On July 3rd, 2012, the untold story begins.
Ever since Peter's parents disappeared 13 years ago, he has struggled to find his purpose in life. Now, on the brink of unlocking the mystery about what happened to them, he must face the ultimate challenge — one that has been created within the laboratories of Oscorp.
Smart, charismatic and rebellious, Gwen is the chief intern at Oscorp, a position she takes very seriously. But her life takes a complicated turn as she watches both her boyfriend, Peter, and her mentor, Dr. Connors, undergo radical transformations.
Dr. Curt Connors
One of the leading scientific minds, Dr. Connors attempts to engineer a revolutionary regeneration serum to help re-grow limbs and human tissue. His motivations are unclear as to why he elects to be the first human test subject — but what becomes evident is that something goes horribly wrong.
To see the new image of Leary as Capt. Stacy and to read the character description, head over to the official website.
The Amazing Spider-Man was written by James Vanderbilt and Alvin Sargent. Campbell Scott, Annie Parisse, Embeth Davidtz, Irrfan Khan, Denis Leary, C. Thomas Howell, Chris Zylka and two-time Academy Award-winner Sally Field also star.
