"The Amazing Spider-Man" is currently filming in New York, shooting scenes at the Hearst Tower, which is being used as OsCorp. Today we have a brand new video and several new photos from the set.
The video and photos show Andrew Garfield (The Social Network) as Peter Parker wearing glasses and carrying a skateboard. He stands around the OsCorp building before finally going inside. We also have photos of Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy jumping into a police car. Check everything out below.
"The Amazing Spider-Man" is directed by Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer) and is scheduled to hit conventional and 3D theaters on July 3rd, 2012.
I thought Toby was fitting personally. And the first two films are good flicks, while the 3rd was mediocre (besides the dancing). I'm not too sure about this reboot, although I do like how they are staying closer to the source material. But because I'm not an avid comic book reader, did Parker ever ride a skateboard?
Pretty sure Spiderman is set in the present day, and pretty sure you're confusing X-Men First Class with this film.
But those white folks do look alike.
Real question is why some twenty-something iss till riding a board and why he's wondering why he can't land a date.
"Don't even think skateboards were around in the 60's man, actually I'm pretty sure. I don't read Ultimates, is this anything like it?"
You'd be wrong, Albert:
A skateboard is typically a specially designed plywood board combined with a polyurethane coating used for making smoother slides and stronger durability, used primarily for the activity of skateboarding. The first skateboards to reach public notice came out of the surfing craze of the early 1960s, developed to help surfers practice when waves were unfavorable. The first prototypes were simple wooden boards with roller-skate wheels attached, and the practice was sometimes referred to as "sidewalk surfing." The surfing group Jan and Dean even had a minor hit called "Sidewalk Surfing" in 1964. By the mid-1980s skateboards were mass produced and sold throughout the United States.
You mean the Back to the Future where he goes back in time to '85? Yeah, I have. Doesn't really help me when I want to look into the 60's though. I brought up the '60's because I was thinking of the 'ol Ditko/Lee days. I'm pretty sure we need to talk before you're pretty sure, my man.
But yeah that makes sense. I just have a brother who grew up in the good 'ol days when skateboards were misfit accessories, aka the 80's. Well, where I live that sh*t was outcasted. Dunno 'bout you. Everyone I mostly talked to never mentioned seeing skateboards until at least the mid-80's. But then again, surf-boards weren't exactly popular around here, still aren't. Still, I'll be sure to do more thorough research next time.

No dude, he goes back to like, 1954 or some sh*t remember, and he rips the handle off that kids wooden Scooter and turns it into a skateboard.. Come on man.. Movie site! Figure your sh*t out..
That was Back to the Future 2? I believe.. Im pretty sure he made a f*ckin skateboard out of something in the old west too.. Marty McFly was the original skater..
They were scooters that had been home made obviously..
Home made in the sense that they were skateboards and their moms glued and nailed some sh*tty handle onto the wooden board with wheels, and then McFly ripped em off.. I mean if they were manufactured as scooters a little guy like that couldnt just rip em apart..
So they started out as skateboards probably, the USE just wasn't really there.. Probably more out of fear of falling than anything.. Handles make things easier to ride.
There's nothing wrong with clarifying, Triggax. :) But indeed, what you told me was a duh kind of thing. So until tomorrow I'm rejuvenated I'm gonna stick to what I do best: Making stupid, obnoxious, sometimes non-sensical comments.
@trig - my (older) brother had the same thing as we saw in Back to the Future. His was a coke crate nailed to the top of a skateboard with (wooden) handles added. F*ck me, that was a long time ago and barely a memory.
