Here’s the official synopsis for The Amazing Spider-Man:

Like most teenagers his age, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today.  In his journey to put the pieces of his past together he uncovers a secret his father held…a secret that will ultimately shape his destiny as Spider-Man.  This is the first in a series of movies that tells a different side of the Peter Parker story.  On July 3rd, 2012, the untold story begins.

And here are the wallpapers and character bios:


Peter Parker

Ever since Peter’s parents disappeared 13 years ago, he has struggled to find his purpose in life.  Now, on the brink of unlocking the mystery about what happened to them, he must face the ultimate challenge – one that has been created within the laboratories of Oscorp.



Gwen Stacy

Smart, charismatic and rebellious, Gwen is the chief Intern at Oscorp, a position she takes very seriously.  But her life takes a complicated turn as she watches both her boyfriend, Peter, and her mentor, Dr. Connors, undergo radical transformations.



Captain Stacy

An esteemed police officer for over twenty years, Captain Stacy is the public face of the NYPD who leads the department’s investigation into Spider-Man’s vigilantism.  The only thing Captain Stacy vows to protect more than the city is his family – and particularly his only daughter, Gwen.



Dr. Curt Connors

One of Oscorp’s leading scientific minds, Dr. Connors attempts to engineer a revolutionary regeneration serum to help re-grow limbs and human tissue.  His motivations are unclear as to why he elects to be the first human test subject – but what becomes evident is that something goes horribly wrong.

    on the second photo, we see that Spiderman uses a device to launch its spider’s silk thread. the problem is: in his left hand he holds a broken wire. Does it mean that the device cuts the thread when Spiderman stop pressing the button, or is there a timer cut?

    OMG…Spidey for EMOs…

    this is spider-man done correctly … the other 3 movies were awefull … although #2 had a good villain … the rest was crap.

    The first movies were all candy coated and sterile like movies out of the 80s … the original movies had really bad scripts.

    it looks like peter fights a real villain in this, not a power ranger.

    every movie nerd on here complaining about this movie is going to be there on opening day to watch it.

      True that, I hated the Raimi Spiderman trilogy, it felt like Hallmark superhero movies to me.

      This is going to be a lot better, I’m hoping anyway

      Gwen looks hottttttttttt

  • Jeff

    I know this is sacrilege but I’m hoping this MacGuffin with Peter’s dad gives Uncle Ben a reason to stick around for most of the movie. I mean, his death is obviously iconic, but I’d like to see Spider-Man before the death and then after… a more complex evolution of what Spider-Man is, if you will, rather than the death being the birth of Spidey. One way to spice up the story in a new direction… maybe even let Ben be aware Peter’s Spidey, and maybe aware that Peter’s misusing his gift?

    As a die-hard Spidey fan, the photo of Emma Stone in Gwen Stacy’s college attire brings tears to my eyes…all 8 of them!

    Can’t believe how Sam Raimi douched-up her role in Spider-man 3. But if anyone was born to play her, Emma’s my girl!

    I loved the first 2 Spider-man movies and think that this one looks very promising. To be honest, I liked the organic webshooters more. I always hated when Spidey would run out of web fluid in the middle of a fight.

    Hi all, this is my take on the web-stooters….I think Peter Parker’s blood streams have been coated with the spider’s DNA. In one of the scene in the trailer, you could actually see him prying out web threads from his open wounds. This means that the mechancial web-shooters could be a utilitarian tool to get the web out from his body as a means to use it for various purposes.

    I suspect that the web-shooters could be a technology Peter got from Oscorp. There is a possiblity that the web-shooters can extract the web-like stuff from his blood streams and shoots out from his wrist.

    I am very sure that the webs are not artificial but is organic.

    What do you guys think??

      I like you’re thinking, much more intelligent and believable than the comic version of the web shooters. But I’ll go back to my Spider-Man Blu-rays anyway…. you kids have fun with “The Amazing Spider-boy”

  • Sugreev2001

    Emma looks hotter than usual.Hopefully,Gwen will be played with sincerity unlike Raimi’s total butchering of the character,horribly assisted by lame actress Bryce Howard.
