THE AMAZING SPIDER- MAN
Due out: July 4
Stars: Andrew Garfield ( pictured), Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen
They say: Peter Parker investigates why his parents disappeared when he was young. His search puts him on a collision course with Dr Curt Connors, his dad’s former partner.
We say: Matching the high standards of the first set of three is a tough ask.
Close up: Winding the clock back so far means there’s no place for star Spidey- villains like Green Goblin and Doc Ock. Now it’s the turn of Ifans as Dr Connors ( aka The Lizard) to put Peter Parker through his paces.
Wide shot: At 28 years of age, British star Garfield ( who is best known for The Social Network) might strike some as a little old to be playing a character that’s still in high school.
