To portray Gwen Stacy in the cinematic Spider-Man reboot, the 'Superbad' actress relied on her intuitive acting instincts to ensure Gwen’s love for Peter Parker/Spider-Man (her reported real-life beau, Andrew Garfield) appeared authentic onscreen.
To play the lead in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man,' the first offering of the newly rebooted 'Spider-Man' franchise, filmmakers chose the relatively fresh, new face of Andrew Garfield. According to the English-bred actor, it is a role he was born to play.
Peter Parker and alter ego Spider-Man return to the big screen this summer in the new action-packed film "The Amazing Spider-Man" 2012. Based on the Marvel Comics character this will be the fourth Spider-Man film to hit the big screen.
