The Amazing Spiderman is the upcoming film directed by Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer). This will be the fourth spiderman film by Columbia Pictures, though this is the start of a perspective reboot of the series. To be honest is there any need to reboot a perfectly good trilogy? Just a money making cash in if you ask me. Though saying that this film does contain a few interesting actors! Here is the full cast list so far:
- Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker / Spider-Man: A high school student who is bitten by a radioactive spider and gains spider-like abilities.
- Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy: One of Spider-Man’s earliest love interests in the comics.
- Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt Connors / The Lizard: A scientist who tests lizard serum on himself that regenerates his arm, but also turns him into a reptilian humanoid monster.
- Martin Sheen as Ben Parker: May Parker’s husband and Peter Parker’s uncle.
- Sally Field as May Parker: Ben Parker’s wife and Peter Parker’s aunt.
- Denis Leary as Captain George Stacy: Gwen’s father and a New York City Police Department captain.
- Irrfan Khan as Van Adder: One of the villains in the movie. In the comics he is known to turn into the supervillain known as the Proto-Goblin.
- Annie Parisse as Van Adder’s wife.
- Campbell Scott as Richard Parker: The father of Peter Parker.
- Julianne Nicholson as Mary Parker: The mother of Peter Parker.
- Chris Zylka as Eugene “Flash” Thompson: Peter Parker’s high school nemesis, a football player who constantly bullies Peter dubbing him “Puny Parker” while simultaneously idolizing Spider-Man.
- C. Thomas Howell as Ray: A construction worker whose son Spider-Man saves.
- Miles Elliot as Billy Connors: The son of Dr. Curt Connors.
Spider-Man co-creator Stan Lee has a cameo, as he did in the previous films, which will involve him in an action scene and which he referred to as his “best, most unusual one yet!”
