The Amazing Spiderman 2012 Spiderman 4
The Amazing Spider-Man is an upcoming American superhero film directed by Marc Webb, based on the comic book of the same name, and starring Andrew Garfield as the fictional superhero, Spider-Man.
The film began shooting on December 6, 2010 in Los Angeles. The 90-day film shoot also includes two weeks in New York City, while the bulk of filming occurred in and around Los Angeles, including such locations as the Henry Fonda Theater in Hollywood, St. John Bosco High School’s Gym, Immanuel Presbyterian Church in Mid-Wilshire, and various locations around South Pasadena, San Pedro, and Woodland Hills. Sony Entertainment spokesman Steve Elzer says “this is the fourth Spider-Man production we have shot primarily in Los Angeles and for good reason, the crews here are the best in the world but there is a comfort level in producing a project of this size and scope on your own backlot.” He continued, “Basing the film on the lot also makes it easier for producers to interact with Sony’s in-house visual effects team, and gives the studios greater control of quality and security.”
The stunt performers of the film included the Armstrong family,Vic Armstrong and Andy Armstrong. Garfield was reported to be involved with some of the stunts as well. The actor was even reported to have a tissue in his nose suffering a nosebleed from his swinging in New York City. While filming in New York the crew built a whole rig hundreds of feet long over Riverside Drive in Harlem. While there they swung a man through traffic down the street. Andy Armstrong built a car rig with a series of wires to help with effects which required an incredible wealth of acrobatics.
Webb feels a responsibility to reinvent Spider-Man on the big screen stating that he and the crew tried to keep the stunts more grounded physically which he said was a huge challenge for a film that stars a character whose abilities are superhuman. The crew spent many months developing rigs so he could swing in a way that wasn’t computer-generated. Webb stated, “Obviously there’s going to be enhancements and CG, but it’s based in a physical reality and that’s a new technique.”One of the biggest changes of the franchise to reinvent the hero for the the film was to go back to the original source material in the mainstream comics of Spider-Man having artificial web shooters. Webb stated, “the web-shooters were able to dramatize Peter’s intellect”. Webb explained, “We paid attention to the question of ‘How would a kid make it?’ And obviously we took some license with it.”Webb explained that he and the crew “wanted a design that would make the body longer and lither, more of an acrobat, someone incredibly agile, and the legs of the spider were something we used to emphasize that.”He also explained that the crew made a bunch of different suits for different lighting conditions even using something that would work in the night a little better. They also paid attention to making the webbing on the costume a little bit darker. Webb confessed, “With the costume and the web-shooters we wanted to emphasize that these are things that Peter Parker made and that he is special himself even if he feels like he’s an outsider.
Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker / Spider-Man
Andrew Garfield dons the webbed crusader’s suit in The Amazing Spiderman, that is hitting theatres in July. There are a lot of expectations from the British-American actor, who has been hailed for his portrayal of Mark Zuckerberg’s best friend in The Social Network as well as his work in theatre. Garfield talks about the inevitable comparisons with Toby Maguire – who played Spiderman in the earlier three movies – and the pressures of living upto the superhero hype.
Garfield said he “related to Peter Parker so much because felt like someone else inside”. Garfield drew from his life experiences as inspiration for the role, revealing, “I was thinking of my history and thinking of the kid at school who I wasn’t as strong as, who behaved badly to a lot of people – including myself – and who I constantly tried to stand up to but never had the physical prowess to”. He said he respects Tobey Maguire as an actor and that when he first saw Maguire play Spider-Man he “was blown away by his interpretation.” On taking over the role, “I see it as a massive challenge in many ways…. To make it authentic. To make the character live and breathe in a new way.
Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy
Gwen Stacy was A high school classmate and the second love of Peter Parker which was been killed by Green Goblin in The Amazing Spiderman comic series. Spider-Man writers and fans disagree about who is the character’s “one true love;” Gwen or his subsequent love-interest Mary Jane Watson.
Emma Stone described her character as “a daddy’s girl”. Stone dyed her hair blonde for the role of the character, which happens to be her natural hair color even though she is better recognized with her red hair. She felt that she had a responsibility to educate herself on Spider-Man, admitting that she did not know much about the character beyond the Raimi films. After her role she expressed interest in Spider-Man, the character she played and the rest of the Marvel Universe that she was going to be involved with. Stone also had this to say about the fans who would be protective of Spider-Man and the character she plays: “There’s a part of me that really wants to please people that love Spider-Man or Gwen Stacy and want her to be done justice. I hope they’ll give me license to interpret her my way. But that fan base, I’m one of them, so I completely understand why they would be judgmental of certain things.”
Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt Connors / The Lizard
Ifans described the character that he is playing not as a evil incarnated villain but as a flawed character much like Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde.“Curt Conners is by no means an evil villain,” Ifans stated. “He’s not like the Batman villains, like the Joker, who are the embodiment of evil. Curtis Connors is a great man who makes a bad decision. That’s the whole magic of the Spider-Man idea. These people are the embodiment of our flaws and our desires that lead to tragedy.”
In a September, 2011 interview, Ifans claimed that his character spends the majority of the film as a human. While filming for the 9-foot tall Lizard, Ifans was required to wear a CGI suit. Initially, a large stunt-double was used as a stand-in for the role, but Ifans insisted on portraying the transformed character, to which Webb agreed. Commenting on the technology used to bring his character to life, Ifans continued “I had a green suit on, and then this cardboard head, and these big claws… Each and every time you see the Lizard, the technology is so advanced now that when the Lizard’s eyes move, they’re my eyes. If I frown or show any emotion, they’re my emotions. That’s how spectacularly advanced technology is.”
Ifans also said that he voiced the Lizard as well explaining, “I’m sure the voice will be toyed with in the eventual edits, but when I was shooting the CGI moments, when I wasn’t actually human, when I was Lizard, I looked like a crash-test dummy in a green leotard thing. There were many moments when I had to speak to Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone as the Lizard.”
Martin Sheen as Ben Parker
Peter Parker’s uncle. Sheen admitted that he didn’t have a clue of Spider-Man other than watching Toby Maguire’s portrayal in Spider-Man 2. He also didn’t know much about the character that he played except for knowing that Cliff Robertson played the part of the character. Martin Sheen described his character as being a surrogate father saying, “I’m dealing with this adolescent who is having problems with changes, with hormones changing and his getting out of hand. I have to give him the marching orders and so forth.”
Sally Field as May Parker
Ben Parker’s wife, and Peter Parker’s aunt.
