'The Amazing Spider-Man'

Although Sam Raimi's trilogy starring Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man first hit theaters only 10 years ago, the franchise is already getting a reboot, this time led by director Marc Webb ("500 Days of Summer") and British actor Andrew Garfield ("The Social Network"). "The Amazing Spider-Man," set for a July 3, 2012, release date, tells the story of how plain old Peter Parker became the crime-fighting wall-crawler. Emma Stone plays Peter Parker's love interest, Gwen Stacy, and Rhys Ifans plays the Lizard, a villain for comics' most famous arachnophile.
