Coming to theaters later this summer, THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN is director MARC WEBB’S much buzzed about reboot of the popular franchise directed by SAM RAIMI. Another origin story, the film will chronicle how nerdy high school student Peter Parker acquires the amazing powers that turn him into one of Marvel Comics most popular superheroes . Heading the cast is ANDREW GARFIELD, EMMA STONE, RHYS IFANS, SALLY FIELD, DENIS LEARY, MARTIN SHEEN, C. THOMAS HOWELL and EMBETH DAVIDTZ.
At a TCA press conference held a few months ago, LEARY was asked about his involvement in the SPIDER-MAN franchise (in which he’ll play former cop and Spidey supporter George Stacy) and he recounted an incident where this proved confusing to fans who often mistake him for actor WILLEM DeFOE.
