Sony Announces`The Amazing Spider-Man`

There’s a ton of speculation about what might or might not get included in Marc Webb’s upcoming reboot of the Spider-Man franchise but, as Sony officially announced today, one thing is guaranteed: It’s going to be Amazing.

The Amazing Spider-Man is the official title for the blockbuster, starring Andrew Garfield in the role of everyone’s favorite webslinger. The production, which hits on July 3rd, 2012, is currently being shot entirely in 3D and, while a number of set photos have leaked to the web, little in known about the film’s plot. Even persistent rumors such as the primary villian being the Lizard have yet to be confirmed by the studio.

What is known is that Garfield will be joined in the production by Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Denis Leary as her dad, Captain George Stacy,  Rhys Ifans as the main villian and a supporting cast that includes Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan, Martin Sheen and Sally Field.
