Several weeks ago, Sony Pictures invited us to attend the press junket The Amazing Spider-Man.  The reboot takes a grittier, more realistic approach to Peter Parker’s journey to becoming your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, and sees the wall-crawler struggling to come to grips with the mysterious disappearance of his parents.  For more on the film, click here for all of our previous coverage.

During my on-camera interview with Martin Sheen, who plays Uncle Ben, we talked his experience working with Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker/Spider-Man), the blockbuster feel on set, his thoughts on Spawn, and what it was like being on The West Wing during the Aaron Sorkin years and after Sorkin left the show.  Hit the jump to check out the interview, and click on the corresponding links for my interviews with co-stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans and Denis Leary. The Amazing Spider-Man opens in 3D on July 3rd.
