The Amazing Spiderman, a 2012 superhero-action film, will be perpetuating the Spider Man franchise just a little a bit longer, after the most recent Spiderman movie has been slated for a summer release this July. Although the narrative of the story won’t be vastly different than that of the previous Spiderman film, this time around, Park must cope with his powers amidst the hells of high school.
Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), your average, run-of-the mill high school teenager, wants nothing more than to make it through high school. Well, that and save the world from any existential threat that may come its way. But that’s after he has a run-in with his father’s former Partner, Dr. Connors (Rhys Ifans).
Discovering a briefcase that belonged to his dad turns Parker into an outcast, mutant with spider-like abilities. Trying to win the heart of his high-school crush Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) and dealing with his new gift becomes all too much to handle with Dr. Connor’s alter ego starts to plot death and pain for Parker and his family.
Directed by Marc Webb, Spiderman ranks among the best of the best when it comes to America’s most adorned superheros. The Amazing Spiderman has the advantage of modern visual effects, a recent fascination with dark superhero stories (thank you Dark Knight), and a rising Playboy in the making as Andrew Garfield shows us the “untold story” of the Spiderman.
