Here, in a pcture taken by J. Anthony Hall from his Twitter feed , is the first clear shot of Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt Conners with Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker from THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN.
Note that Ifan’s hand is covered with green cloth, to aid in effects replacement.
Spider-Man fans will recall that the one-armed Curt Connors will become Spidey foe The Lizard.
Via the UK’s Daily Mail come these shots of Andrew Garfield with Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy) and Martin Sheen (Uncle Ben Parker) on the production’s New York City location shoot, taken by Jose Perez for Splash News.
Deadline.com says that Martin Sheen (THE DEAD ZONE, WEST WING) is set to take on the role of Peter Parker’s Uncle Ben in Sony/ Columbia’s Spider-Man reboot movie.
It also states that Sally Field (FOREST GUMP, THE FLYING NUN) is in talks to play Aunt May.
This would tend to support the notion that the movie will spend a good deal of time re-telling Spider-Man’s origin story. This was pretty much inevitable, once it was learned that Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) is supposed to be a high school student in the new film.
Note: The Hollywood Reporter was somewhat more cautious, saying Martin Sheen was in “final negotiations” to play Uncle Ben in the as yet untitled film.
Production on the 3D film starts in December, under the aptly-named director Marc Webb.
