Spider-Man Swings Back Into Theaters

Andrew Garfield talks bringing the superhero to life

By Fred Hechinger | July 2 , 2012

On July 3, Spider-Man swings back into theaters in The Amazing Spider-Man!

In this new adventure, we learn how the secrets in Peter Parker's family might have led to his transformation into Spider-Man. And, of course, there's an epic battle with a big bad guy. This time, it's the snarling half-man-half reptile Lizard.

Andrew Garfield brings Peter Parker and Spider-Man to life in this new movie. He spoke with Kid Reporter Fred Hechinger at a press event in New York about the role and how The Amazing Spider-Man is different from other Spider-Man movies.
