'The Amazing Spider-Man'

In Theaters: July 3rd

"There was no underwear between me and the suit." That's Andrew Garfield delivering the hard truth about what it's like to squeeze into the Spider-Man costume. The bigger question may be: Is five years too soon to reboot the Spider-Man franchise? Aren't Tobey Maguire and director Sam Raimi still fresh in our minds? I'm betting that Garfield and director Marc Webb ([500 Days] of Summer) are adding something new to the game. And what with Emma Stone playing girlfriend Gwen Stacy and Rhys Ifans doing the villain thing as the Lizard, this new Spider-Man could actually be as amazing as the title promises.
