Back to 2012 Preview: Blockbusters
'The Amazing Spider-Man'
Release date: July 3, 2012
Because 'Spider-Man 3' came out all the way back in 2007, Sony decided to reboot the friendly neighborhood webslinger with director Marc Webb ('(500) Days of Summer'), Andrew Garfield (as Peter Parker) and Emma Stone (as Gwen Stacey). Early looks at 'The Amazing Spider-Man' look amazing enough, if awfully familiar. Will audiences care about another Peter Parker origin story?
