We've been showing you photos from the set of the upcoming "Spider-Man" reboot, including shots of a stuntman performing swinging stunts. Today, we have a video of one of these stunts and you can check it out below.
The new movie stars Andrew Garfield (The Social Network) as the title character, Rhys Ifans as the villainous Lizard, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Martin Sheen as Ben Parker, Sally Field as May Parker, and Denis Leary as George Stacy.
"Spider-Man" is directed by Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer) and is scheduled to hit conventional and 3D theaters on July 3rd, 2012.

Suits a right f*cking mess

It DOES make me a little happy that apparently not all action will be CGI.
Still don't know, tho. Could be good. Could be awful.

Looks like the old late 70s cartoon. And thats not a good thing.
CGI has improved since even 2007. Computer imagery could give us a totally convincing Spiderman without the gayness, where as this won't have the fakery but it'll lack the dynamism that's possible with CGI.

Over the moon they are using at least some physical stunts, the others got far too cartoon like for me, but yeah, we will see

Physical stunts might be a plus for this film, but I just can't get passed all the things they've done wrong here, from the director who may or may not work, the dubious actor choices, the high school/teen setting (and the subsequent loss of Jonah Jameson), the costume and so much more.

The high school setting and director doesn't bother me as much. But losing J Jonah? That makes no sense. I know it'd be different in this film, but J.K. Simmons was EASILY the best part of the Raimi films for me.

He might to get to come back for the sequel as Jameson, when and where Peter Parker is out of high school.
But I wonder if it'll be too late. I just don't see this film going for seconds and thirds. I could be wrong, of course.
Oh... yay, a reboot of a film that came out a couple of years ago. I'm sure looking forward to yet another comic book film. Sigh.

Im pretty sure they will be planning on at very least a trilogy so Jameson will no doubt show his face, dont mind the suit too much because i havent seen it in motion yet, i mean they have to light the thing to get the colours popping but once the films gradded i think it could look ok, i dont mind the director but havent seen him handle action so thats 50/50, gotta say i dont mind Garfield other than the fact he looks too weedy......highschool though....that pisses me off, i know they are going for a particular story line but make it for the old spidey fans, not the kids who only know him as Tobey
Without the CG... the actor playing Spiderman doesn't have the strength of... well... a spider (proportionally). At least with the CG (and not saying I'm a fan of it always... but it has its place, and yes many parts of Raimi's movies made him look like a cartoon)... Spidey was able to whip himself around with that web like nobody's business. Here we'll see a limp armed youngin trying to do the things animated/comic book Spidey could do on a web.
But... old school comic guy here... I'm STILL optimistic... sort of. And SONY still sucks farts.
I've just found the first trailer of this new Spider-Man and it looks better than expected! ;) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q8aQvCEn3JU

lol holy sh*t thats bad! i used to think it was awesome

i think the director has potential due to his background in music videos and making a good indie rom com that works. and the choice for spiderman is a good choice. check "boy a" for some choice acting from andrew garfield.
as for the loss of JJ, well it makes sense. the kids in high school. this doesn't mean we won't see any articles from the bugle hatin on spidey. plus it's a series/trilogy. we'll just see him in the next one.
