    THE NEW SPIDER-MAN IS....[UPDATE FOR TYPOS]

    Looks like what I said about how ridiculous and complicated things would be if Josh Hutcherson is ended up been the new Spider-Man may have seen some truth in the end. It looks like his dream of taking Peter Parker's role into to the friendly neighbourhood of New York City was merely just a dream. Not that I have anything against him, but when taking a role as big as this, commitment and suitability are among things we should considered carefully. Fear not, Sony Pictures has already decided on who the new Spider-Man is.


    On the previous post I made earlier this week, I reported that there six possible candidates to take on the Spidey suit. Go here to view that post again. Or if you are been lazy bum bum just to move the cursor over here to go to that link, I'll be kind enough to give you a repeat. Okay, so screen tests last week at Sony studio has Logan Lerman, Andrew garfield, Aaron Johnson, Jamie Bell, Anton Yelchin and Alden Ehrenreich, all been tested for the important role. While previously the seventh and eighth nominee (Frank Dillane and Josh Hutcherson himself) were not considered due to known scheduling conflicts.


    So, the new Spider-Man is (drum rolls)....


    Andrew Garfield, the 26-year-old British actor has been announced by Sony's Columbia Picture and Marvel Studios to take on the lead role of Peter parker for the upcoming reboot project of Spider-Man. While the movie is expected to start shooting before the year end, studios have already decided a summer 2012 release for this reboot. Meanwhile, on selecting Garfield, this is what director Marc Webb has to say:
    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.
    Marc Webb, director of Spider-Man reboot


    Now with that announcement, I'm sure many will be left disappointed. Garfield is the one of the least possible actor on the list to take on the role but the fact that the studio goes for him means that the they are very confident on his performance and screen tests last week. By the way, although he is relatively unknown, Garfield has several credits under his belt - Boy A, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnasus and the upcoming David Fincher's The Social Network. Oh, I bet many Logan Lerman's fans will be upset now. Sulk! Well life goes on and maybe Lerman may ended up been a villain.
