‘Amazing Spider-Man’: Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield are ‘magic’

July 08, 2012 | 10:37 a.m.

“The Amazing Spider-Man” is off to a strong start, and director Marc Webb’s film has escaped the clutches of its biggest foe — the crowded summer schedule. Trapped between “The Avengers” and “The Dark Knight Rises,” the Sony reboot was in real danger of becoming the friendly neighborhood afterthought.

Our readers got to see “Amazing Spider-Man” early thanks to the Hero Complex IMAX Screening Series. In the Q&A portion of the evening, Webb spoke about the chemistry between his lead actors, Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, and said that “casting them was the single most important” thing. Take a look at the video above to learn more about the casting of Garfield, the differing style of the two young stars and the director’s funny line about the off-screen romance between the two actors. “We did a lot of work in post on that,” Webb said, referring to post-production, the work phase in which editing, digital effects and music can add considerable Hollywood magic to footage.

    This movie was really good!! Me an my brothers and cousins really enjoyed it! The story was close to the comic books which was great! And the acting was really well done as well!! Though I have to give a special shout out to Andrew Garfield he did a great job at portraying Peter Parker!! The stuttering, nervousness and the sarcasm made him a really great Peter Parker/Spiderman!

    Good to know its doing well!

    I love Andrew Garfield's Peter Parker. He's a guy I would fall for in high school. And to see such a shy, unassuming guy crawl buildings and beat up bad guys….that's like wow. I'm rooting for the franchise!
