Well it’s now official. Spider-Man has been cast. You may remember when we told you the plans to completely reboot the Spider-Man franchise, including the cast. Columbia Pictures wanted to take Peter Parker / Spider-Man back to his high school years. Well they’ve gotten their wish. Andrew Garfield, 26, has been cast in the the coveted role. The relative unknown has been in plays and such movies as The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. Director Marc Webb says, “Though his name may be new to many, those who know this young actor’s work understand his extraordinary talents. He has a rare combination of intelligence, wit, and humanity. Mark my words, you will love Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker.”
Filming will begin in December with a May 2012 release date.
