Spider- Man Facts
In early January 2010, it was announced that the idea of making “Spider-Man 4” with director Sam Raimi and actor Tobey Maguire, who started their work together on Spider-Man, had been cancelled. Instead, Sony decided to completely re-boot the Spider-Man franchise with a new crew and story.
About Andrew Garfield being cast as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, director Marc Webb has 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.”
Taylor Lautner, Josh Hutcherson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Logan Lerman, Robert Pattinson, Daniel Radcliffe, Michael Cera, Zac Efron, Aaron Johnson, Xavier Samuel, Jim Sturgess and Anton Yelchin were considered for the role of Spiderman. Ultimately, the part went to Andrew Garfield.
The movie was released during the 50th Anniversary of Spider-Man.
The Facebook page of the film recently announced that this was a first in a film trilogy. These will explore how Peter Parker was shaped by the disappearance of his parents and the producer, Tolmach, has said that there “will be more than one, and at the very least three.”
