News has been quiet lately for director Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man, but these recent pictures prove the production is still swinging along. The (500) Days of Summer-director might be pushing his star Andrew Garfield (The Social Network) a little too hard, as the actor was seen stemming a nosebleed on set the other day. It might be part of Peter Parker’s nerdy persona to have a tissue stuffed up his nose, or perhaps it was a hazard of Garfield’s stunt work earlier in the day. The star was seen in an all-red bodysuit and sunglasses descending on a zip line; his stunt double finished the shoot by jumping over the hood of a car. The Amazing Spider-Man co-star Rhys Ifans (Anonymous) was also seen on set sporting a slimy looking hand. Hit the jump to see the photos.
Courtesy of the DailyMail, you get to see pictures of Garfield with a tissue jammed up his nose and Ifans with a snot-covered hand. Are these photos related? I sure hope not. More likely than a seasonal flu scenario is that Garfield is fleshing out the action scenes of the early days of Spider-Man and Ifans may be experiencing early signs of his transformation into the Lizard.
Starring Garfield, Ifans, Emma Stone, Sally Field and Martin Sheen in a screenplay by Alvin Sargent and Steve Kloves, The Amazing Spider-Man is a reboot back to the early days of Peter Parker and his struggle to control his new found spider-powers. The film opens July 3rd, 2012. Catch up with all of our The Amazing Spider-Man coverage here.
