- (x002) The Amazing Spider-Man: Stills
Andrew Garfield marks his debut as ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ on July 5th and from the looks of the trailer and movie stills released, it’s going to be one heck of an action-packed ride.
We had a web chat with the cast and director of ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’, including the man himself Andrew Garfield and got his take on why the webbed hero is still relevant today.
Emma Stone also spoke about her reaction when first seeing real-life boyfriend Garfield in the Spidey suit, plus Rhys Ifans talks about playing The Lizard and director Marc Webb describes how he tried to stay true to the comic books.
The ease and difficulty of filming ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’
Marc Webb:Â I was nervous driving to set, but then once I got on set it was, like, you know, the 3D cameras. They were so worried about, like, things going wrong. It actually went pretty smoothly so I sort of breathed a sigh of relief. And there was a couple of really, like, great close-ups that we got of Andrew. I walked away feeling pretty good. But then we had to, like, pick up the pace.
Andrew Garfield:Â There’s a lot of layers of difficulty. It’s like a lasagna of difficulty. Some people will feel that one is day is difficult and some are, you know– You know what I mean.
Emma Stone:Â The difficulty and the easiness of it is like a symbiotic relationship.
Rhys Ifans:Â I wouldn’t call it a lasagna. I would call it more of a potpourri.
Playing an iconic role like Spider-Man
Andrew Garfield:Â It’s a very overwhelming and scary experience. I feel very lucky of course to be playing someone that I’ve cared about so much since I was a kid. But of course it’s overwhelming and, you know, you try and just do the best job you can. But yeah, it’s nerve-wracking.
Feeling connected to ‘Spider-Man’
Andrew Garfield:Â I feel so connected to Peter Parker, like every fan does, so I felt like it was all instinctual, or I felt like he’s been a part of my DNA since I was three years old. So I felt like I just had to follow that instinct and not actually get too in my head about it.
Seeing Andrew Garfield in the ‘Spider-Man’ suit for the first time
Emma Stone:Â Awesome. Pretty incredible. It was great. That suit is exquisite. It’s really beautiful. I don’t know how you made that. • Read full story…
Emma Stone brings a whole new style to the Spider-Man movies, with her trademark headbands and thigh-highs. We talked to Stone about her character’s possible Electra complex, unlearning love for Peter Parker, and the real-life science that went into this superhero story. Find out why she was studying stem cells during the making of Amazing Spider-Man.
Gwen Stacey is pretty iconic â€” you said you went through and did some research on her and her story. That was very apparent on screen, where everything down to her iconic thigh highs, her look, and the feel of the character seemed to come right off the comic page. How much of that was your preparation and how much of it were things that you worked on with Webb?
Costumes were done by Kim Barret, who is fantastic. We worked together (kind of) to make sure that Gwen felt like Gwen, but also made sense in the real world. And I’m a lot less voluptuous Â than Gwen, unfortunately, so it didn’t really go to those heights. But the signature headband, and the thigh-highs and the coats and all of that was important. Right down to the makeup. We really tried to keep her realistic and Earth-bound. And I’m by no means a supermodel or an unattainable looking person, so that element of Gwen was a bit different because she was such a beauty queen in the comic books. I’m more “next door” than she might be. So that, we worked on.
In terms of her as a character, [it was] kind of a hodgepodge of different versions of Gwen. I know she’s not very hippieish, and I don’t think she will ever be birthing Norman Osborn’s twins [like in the comics]. I don’t think that will be happening, or moving to London. We tried to keep some of that moxie in there, and some of that self-assuredness. She’s the daughter of a police chief. She’s the oldest daughter and there’s that responsibility that kicks in when she thinks that he could die any day. I think it was important that she took on that energy of being in charge of her family. And unwittingly she’s drawn to a man who is in the same position, a little Electra [complex] thing going on there. • Read full story…
