    ...and the new Spider Man is......

    Rotten Tomatoes
    The extensive search by Sony Pictures for the young star of their Spider-Man reboot finally came to an end today. The new Peter Parker will be played by American-British actor Andrew Garfield, whose other movies include The Other Boleyn Girl, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and David Fincher's upcoming The Social Network (which is also a Sony release). Scheduled for a July 3, 2012 release in 3D, the as-yet-untitled Spider-Man reboot will be directed by Mark Webb ((500) Days of Summer). Here's what Webb had to say about the casting, "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." Something else that stands out in Sony's press release is the sole screenwriting credit given to James Vanderbilt (Zodiac; cowriter of The Losers) despite news in recent months that there were other screenwriters involved. Something that is curious about Garfield's casting is that at 26 years old, he doesn't seem quite as young we might have expected considering that this reboot is supposed to be bringing Peter Parker back to his high school roots. By the time this reboot hits Blu Ray and DVD in late 2012, Garfield will be pushing 30! Or does this perhaps mean that the reboot will not be as completely high school focused as previously reported and suspected?
    I love this casting, the dude was terrific in Boy A, so imo this is a step on the right direction.

    I don't care much for the direction they are seemingly going with this series.

    Eh, not really impressed. I agree with SCR on this one. This reboot seems rather pointless to me.

    I have no idea who that is and I'm not sure I even care much either.

    Eh, not bad.

    Either way, I'm not a huge Spiderman fan, but I'll still check it out.

    It should have been Donald Glover


    I thought about naming myself after a murderer. Just kidding. Who would ever do that?

    I'll just wait for the trailer. Truth is, when they made the original spiderman, I didn't know who Tobey McGuire was.
