The website Just Jared snagged the first shots of Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone as Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy in the next “Spider-Man” flick. Here, you see Garfield doing his best Blue Steel. Or you see Garfield doing a Keanu impersonation. Or you see…well, you get the idea.
I’ve flipped through several of the pictures and Peter Parker’s emo kid costume throws up some red flags for me. The hooded sweatshirt under the jacket, the half-finger gloves, that’s quite suspect. If he at any point starts belting out some Dashboard Confessional, well, I think that would signify the death knell for this franchise.
In fact, this entire project is suspect. There is a dark cloud surrounding Spider Man these days. The Broadway musical is being considered a massive bomb, complete with cast members being injured and others quitting. Throw in the absolutely horrendous aftertaste of “Spider-Man 3” and it’s more than enough for me to follow this production with the stink eye.
However, it does have Emma Stone so really, in the end, we all win. In this case, we being guys.
