In regards to the Abomination's appearance in "The Incredible Hulk" I think the creators want to add some logics to it, you know... Have it make sense! Since Blonsky is injected with an experimental super soldier serum then later get exposed to gamma radiation they're just showing what the results look like from all that.

And as for the Lizard in "The Amazing Spider-Man" I believe this is the version that their going for...



But minus the lab attire!

I'm sure it'll happen too. And there is precedent for a shredded mask and stuff in the comics. But let's face it, Raimi did it because he felt the need to spoon-feed the audience. "It's Tobey under that mask, guys, just in case that hasn't been made clear up to now."

And dude, punk rock Peter? Whiskey tango foxtrot?! The guy's supposed to be a quiet, insular nerd, not a douchebag hipster.

Which really bothered me too. They spent 60% of the first movie showing Maguire as Peter Parker. We didn't need him to rip his mask off in EVERY. SINGLE. FILM.

Some info from japan press event the other day:
http://m.superherohype.com/news/articles/169271-new-the-amazing-spider-man-plot-details-revealed
New The Amazing Spider-Man Plot Details Revealed by Silas Lesnick January 18, 2012

Watch the full video from the Japanese press conference

Full video is now online from yesterday's Tokyo-based press conference for Marc Webb's upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man. You can check it out in the player below, courtesy of YouTube user "MrJapanjp."

The video includes questions asked of cast members Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone and producers Avi Arad and Matthew Tolmach, the latter of which began the conference by officially announcing that the film will open on June 30th in Japan, the first territory to open it anywhere in the world.

"In our movie, [Peter] finds his true love," said Arad, when asked what sets this adventure apart from Sam Raimi's trilogy. "Gwen Stacy was always the true love of Peter Parker... We found a very, very good story about what makes a human being. About what sets their destiny."

He went on to tease that Rhys Ifans' Connors will have connection to both Peter and Gwen and, apparently, Peter's parents.

"We introduce our villain, Dr. Connors," he continued, "and in the great tradition of Marvel, Dr. Connors is going to be connected to Peter Parker and, in our case even more interesting, to Gwen Stacy. Right there, the challenge of having to deal with a villain who is a mentor and the only one who you can look at and say, 'So what really happened to my dad?' That's a very hard person to fight."

Special footage was screened for the Japanese press which, according to Garfield, emphasized the physical nature of the film's effects.

"As you can see, a lot of the stunts are practical and grounded in reality," he explained. "That was something that Marc, the director, really wanted to make sure happened in this movie to set it apart from previous ones... I would exhaust myself every day and get into near-death experiences every hour on the hour... I collaborated with [the stunt team] not only on the big stunt set-pieces but also on what happens to Peter’s body when he gets bitten. What happens to his DNA and how that effects the way he moves and the way he interacts with objects. The idea that he has spider DNA running in his system. What that will do to his sense of space. What that will do to the sensitivity of his skin. To have an opportunity to play in that forum with creative and talented people was a real opportunity and gift."

Stone reiterated that her take on Stacy will be a complete departure from the version played by Bryce Dallas Howard in Spider-Man 3.

"We haven't even met Mary Jane at this point," she said, in an arguably cryptic statement.

When asked if the film would duplicate the upside down kiss from the original, Stone said no, but then responded with the following when asked if Webb's version would offer something similarly iconic:

"You don't want to know! You want to watch the movie and find out. Plus, it would be weird if we were like, 'There's something iconic coming up!' You've got to decide if it's iconic or not. But there is a nice first kiss and it's different than the upside down one. And we liked it."

The Amazing Spider-Man opens domestically on July 3rd in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters.

Here is a new synopsis for the film:
http://articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/2012-01-17/news-interviews/30634855_1_spider-man-peter-parker-andrew-garfield
The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents' disappearance - leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr Curt Connors (Ifans), his father's former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors' alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.

Marc webb on the film:

Marc Webb Dishes Out ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ Tidbits

Posted on 2.4.12 by Kellvin Chavez

Today I got this interesting

package in the mail. I was

surprised to receive a Comic-Con

annual magazine that featured

“The Amazing Spider-Man” on the

front cover.

I got to read some pretty

interesting topics, and while I was

going through the magazine, I saw

this very cool interview with

director Marc Webb talking about

“The Amazing Spider-Man.”

I am very excited to actually go

this coming Monday to check out

the sneak peek event for the film.

The Amazing Spider-Man is the

story of Peter Parker (Andrew

Garfield), an outcast high schooler

who was abandoned by his

parents as a boy, leaving him to be

raised by his Uncle Ben (Martin

Sheen) and Aunt May (Sally Field).

Like most teenagers, Peter is trying

to figure out who he is and how

he got to be the person he is

today. Peter is also finding his way

with his first high school crush,

Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), and

together, they struggle with love,

commitment, and secrets. As Peter

discovers a mysterious briefcase

that belonged to his father, he

begins a quest to understand his

parents’ disappearance – leading

him directly to Oscorp and the lab

of Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans),

his father’s former partner. As

Spider-Man is set on a collision

course with Connors’ alter-ego,

The Lizard, Peter will make life-

altering choices to use his powers

and shape his destiny to become a

hero.

Here are some inserts I got from

the magazine.

You came out with a new poster in

December that said “The Untold

Story” on it. Is that the untold

story you’re looking to tell?

Marc Webb: That’s part of the

untold story certainly. It’s really

important for us to be able to

communicate that this isn’t a

remake of Sam Raimi’s movie.

There’s a new territory, there’s a

new villain, it’s a different Peter

Parker.

Why did you feel Gwen Stacy was

the way to go as opposed to Mary

Jane?

Webb: We’ve seen Mary Jane. I

also think that Gwen Stacy is a

young scientifically minded woman

who’s super smart, maybe even a

little bit smarter than Peter at

times. I like that dynamic, that

there was a rivalry between the

two of them in some way. And I

think Emma and Andrew’s

chemistry really describes that in a

fun, very intimate way.

Looking at the trailers and the

poster, this film seems to have a

bit of a darker tone to it, yet

Spidey has always been a

wisecracking, fun kind of super-

hero. Are you able to maintain

that humor in your film?

Webb: There’s this trickster quality

we were very keen on exploring,

with that humor and that fun and

that wisecracking stuff. We wanted

to keep that alive, but we wanted

it to be realistic. We wanted that

humor to come from a real place.

My aim was to create a world

where you could feel all those

emotions. There are certainly

darker, more intense feelings in

this movie. There is betrayal, there

is tragedy, but there’s also humor

and romance. So it’s a very

complex bouquet of emotions, but

what you have to tread on is what

feels authentic and what feels real,

and you have to earn those

different emotions. There are

moments of furiousness and

gravity, absolutely. But are there

moments of humor and levity and

whimsy? Absolutely. Andrew was

really great. He used this term to

describe Peter Parker in Spider-

Man and Spider-Man in particular:

he’s a trickster. He was like “How

would Spider-Man web this guy?

He’d give him a wedgy or he’d dos

some awful graffiti.” There’s a

punk rock quality to Peter Parker

that’s really irreverent and fun and

that’s something that Andrew

embodies in a way that we haven’t

seen before. Certainly the

materials that have come out have

a darker sentiment or there’s a

darker projection, but we’re very

keen on staying loyal to the humor

of Spider-Man.

It seems the way Spider-Man is,

his powers and the way he moves,

would really lend itself to 3D.

Webb: When we first talked about

it, it was in the heyday of 3D and

there was a lot of craziness about

it. But it was never forced upon

us. I thought if there’s ever a

movie that should be in 3D, it’s

Spider-Man for crying out loud.

And watching it in 3D, particularly

in IMAX, even the early stuff I’ve

seen, it’s fantastic. You get a

visceral feeling that you don’t get

any other way when you have

good 3D. We shot this all in stereo

so it was native 3D. Nothing has

been converted. And when you get

that scope, the movie gradually

expands. It starts off in a very

intimate, small way and gradually

expands to take advantage of that

sensation. So do you have to see it

in 3D? No, you’ll still get the thrill

of it. But those point-of-view

sequences, those came very

directly from a philosophy about

putting the audience in Spider-

Man’s shoes. We wanted them to

feel what he feels, and that’s

where those sequences came

from.

The villain, Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt

Connors.

Webb: The Welshman. He’s

fantastic. He brings a surly

sophistication. Curt Connors is a

friend of Peter Parker. He is an ally

who evolves into an adversary, but

Peter always cares deeply for Dr.

Connors. Rhys has tow sides to his

personality. He has a wonderful

kindness and warmth, and he has

this surly rock ‘n’ roll part of his

personality and you really sense

both of those in this movie.

“The Amazing Spider-Man” will

open in theaters everywhere in 3D

on July 3, 2012.

Actually, that "tradition" dates back to the original Judge Dredd film, if not further back. Actors want their FACES on-screen as much as possible.

And did you watch the Raimi Spider-Man films? He was pulling his mask off every 4 minutes it seemed.

Info from today multi city screening of new trailer and sezzle reel of footage. Also word is new trailer will be online tomorrow:
http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/JoshWildingNewsAndReviews/news/?a=54198
Josh Wilding Reviews: THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 3D Trailer, New Footage And Cast Q&A

I was in London tonight to check out not only The Amazing Spider-Man trailer in 3D,but also a sizzle reel of new footage and interviews with Marc Webb,Andrew Garfield,Emma Stone and Rhys Ifans. Read my detailed review and description right here! Josh Wilding - 2/6/2012

Tonight in London, I was one of the few lucky enough to be in the queue for a sneak peek of The Amazing Spider-Man. As Sony employees asked fans for their reaction on camera (look out for those later this week I would say) we were brought in from the cold Leicester Square and welcomed by the new Spider-Man logo up on the big screen. Empire's Chris Hewitt took to the stage and we were taken to live feeds in Los Angeles (Marc Webb), Rio (Emma Stone) and New York (Andrew Grfield). It was then that the trailer was shown in 3D. To put it simply, it was phenomenal. It serves as a wonderful example of why shooting a movie in 3D actually makes all the difference and will surely do nothing other than enhance the overalls experience.

There was a lot going on in the action packed teaser and while I can't remember the specific order or every single little snippet shown, I will do my best to describe the highlights to you. Surprisingly, there is no clear shot of the Lizard. We do see a close up of his eye and claws - both of which were incrediblyndeailed and looked fantasic - as well as several other action shots featuring the villain taking on Spider-Man in various locations (not to mention a very cool scene of his tail wrapping around the hero's neck in what appeared to be a sewer). However, this is arguably no bad thing, especially with another six months until the movie is released...we don't want to be spoiled with too much after all. What it lacked in Lizard, it more than made up for in Spider-Man. There are a lot of webswinging shots which really pop off the screen in 3D and the mix of practical and CGI is blended seamlessly. The "money shot" can be seen at the end of the trailer as the top of what appears to be the Oscorp building starts to collapse as an unmasked Spider-Man runs for cover after battling the Lizard up there too from what we saw of their confrontation. The scene shown at last year's San Diego Comic Con of Peter waiting in the back of a thugs car was shown, and yes, he does have the black eyes at this point (however, it would appear this was due to the lighting rather than any other specific reason, although I have a feeling this WILL be elaborated upon in the film itself). There are plenty of wisecracks and the mask actually moves when he speaks - thankfully eliminating the extremely false sounding moments in the past films where the audio was quite clearly dubbed over. This was a really fun sequence which really separates it from the Sam Raimi's helmed movies. You wanted a faithful take on the character? Well, this lifelong fan of the character would say that THIS is it. There's some quieter scenes too, including Peter finding his father's old bag, hunting down Curt Connors and finding his way to Gwen's apartment by landing on the fire escape outside. The dinner with the Stacy's first glimpsed in the teaser trailer sees Peter suggest that the menace Spider-Man is doing what he police can't, something that doesn't sit well with Captain Satcy who we later see declaring him an outlaw. All in all the 3D was, well, amazing. There were no POV shots, but there WERE plenty of other scenes which convinced me that it will be worth forking out the extra few pounds for a 3D ticket. Even the regular scenes in the Parker household really pop and while it may be too early to say this, I honestly can't recall seeing better 3D footage since Avatar back in 2009...this was better! One other thing which really grabbed my attention was Peter building his wshooters and then activating them, resulting in a blue light which also flashed as they're used - it works brilliantly.

As if it couldn't get any better, Marc Webb then revealed that he had one more surprise for those lucky enough to be in attendance. A reel of footage (in 2D due to the fact that they're stil working on it) which would feature a handful of unfinished scenes, but plenty of other never before seen moments too. It played very much like a trailer and started with Flash Thompson beating up a kid and telling Peter to take a photo of it. He refuses and receives a beating for his troubles (to which he has a witty comeback - "I'm still not taking that picture"). The next scene was the one shown at last year's San Diego Comic Con, an exchange between Peter, Uncle Ben and Gwen in which the chemistry between the three in their respective scenes eith one another is clear. We also saw an extended version of the scene in the car, this time featuring Spider-Man getting on his knees and begging the thug not to use his knife on him. What happens next? He uses his webbing to make a fool of the guy, pretending to sneeze at one point and throwing it like a baseball only seconds later. This was very, very funny and while some fans may think this sounds as if Peter is being portrayed as arrogant while in costume, i assure you hat it doesn't come across that way. A motorcycle cop pulls up behind him as the scene moved on and he fires off a couple of shots before Spidey dodges them with ease and jumps over him. We also see Peter testing his powers out in an abandoned warehouse, struggling at first and later perfecting them as he skateboards through the city. There were a lot of negative comments from fans when Garfield was spotted with a board but it works very well here and is a fun way of showing off his new powers. This footage also confirmed that it is Captain Stacy who unmasks Spider-Man (part of this IS shown in the trailer but it isnt quite so clear) and that he is handcuffed when it happens. Moments before a helicopter shoots something which seemingly immobilises him, thereby allowing this to happen. He escapes, fighting off the police despite literally having both hands tied behind his back. Later on, a confrontation between Spider-Man and the Lizard reveals via voiceover that Peter may have helped create him by assisting Connors with the experiment to regain his arm (removed convincingly by CGI and then growing back again). One of the unfinsihed sequences saw the Lizard attack Van Atter's car, only to be thrawted by Spider-Man who saves several of the vehicles from being throwfront the bridge. It was at this later point in the reel of footage that we were shown a facial shot of the Lizard as he climbed up the top of a building in pursuit of Spider-Man and he looks EXACTLY like the Pez dispensers, concept art and various toys we've seen. Whether he had a snout wasn't clear (more on that below) but it looked to me like a regular humanoid face and not the animalistic version associated with artists such as Todd McFarlane.

The Q&A with the director and cast was nothing any regular visitors to CBM won't have already heard before, although it was very interesting to see Andrew Garfeild say that he hopes the next Spider-Man is played by a half Hispanic/half African American actor, a la Miles Morales. Emma Stone commented on how Gwen is the complete polar opposite of Mary Jane Watson, while Rhys Ifans discussed the complexities of a character like the Lizard. One the cameras stopped rolling, Chris Hewitt turned to the audience for questions. Asked whether the Lizard will have a snout, Ifans looked somewhat taken aback before saying that no, he won't. A few more questions followed, and when asked how he felt to be a Pezdispenser (something he had no idea about) he responded dryly with, Great, that's my Oscar right there!". As you can tell, the Q&A was a a very lighthearted affair and great fun. The final question (something along the lines of whether he was able to relate the loss of Curt Connors' arm to anything in is own life) he joked that the only thing he had lost a few times was his mind, before finding it again, bringing the event to a close with a round of applause and plenty of laughter. Right now, I honestly believe that this will be better than both The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises. It looks and sounds like no other comic book movie and feels totally original and fresh. Raimi's trilogy has come under a great deal of criticism from fans in recent years (including myself) but this feels as if the best moments of all all of those films, just a million times better. It's like nothing I've seen before. The soundtrack (at least what I heard of it) is fantastic and promises to be as memorable as Marc Webb"s brilliant score for his big screen directorial debut, (500) Days Of Summer. If theres only one adaptation this year that fans will say feel like it was torn from the pages of a comic book, I honestly believe it will be The Amazing Spider-Man.
