Andrew Garfield as Spiderman (First Look)

As we all know the rebooted Spiderman movie is right around the corner…ehm ok so maybe it won’t be out until the summer of 2012, but hey at least we can see this wonderful new photo of Spiderman from the upcoming movie. This should hold us together, right…right?

Rhys Ifans the new villain in Spiderman…

Rhys Ifans has joined the cast of the new Spiderman film. He now stands along side Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone in the action thriller. The actor is most recognizably known as Hugh Grant’s roommate in the 1999 romantic comedy Notting Hill.

Although we know who Garfield and Stone are playing in the film, we have no clue as to who Ifans will be playing. Sony is keeping pretty mum on his villainous role.

I hope it is someone we haven’t seen yet; everyone is thinking the Lizard, but what if it’s Mysterio or Carnage…perhaps a little too soon for that.

Who do you think the villain will be in the next Spiderman film? The film is due to be released July 3, 2012!

Philip Seymour Hoffman as Venom….

Now here is a crazy thing running around the rumour mill. Philip Seymour Hoffman is apparently in talks of playing Venom in the Spiderman franchise. Yay for having Venom apart of the rebooted franchise, but why have Mr. Hoffman play the part of Venom? (more…)

Spiderman actor found…

As you may have heard before, the Spiderman franchise is receiving a reboot after its previous director Sam Raimi opted not to return due to reports of creative differences. Not only that but the actor playing the titular hero Tobey Maguire was not going to return if his director was not going to be there. Sony thus had to search for someone to helm the project but not only that they needed a new actor to fill the role.

A few months back you may have heard that Marc Webb was offered the directorial duties to helm the franchise. He is best known for his work with the highly acclaimed romantic-comedy 500 Days of Summer. And now we have our new Spiderman, introducing…Andrew Garfield. You can view the photo to get a better look at the next Peter Parker. He is a newcomer and this is his first major role (headlining) Hopefully he can fill the role left by Tobey Maguire, Spiderman 2 is one of my favourite movies. There is plenty of time to get things underway the reboot film has a release date of July 3, 2012.
