It’s been nearly four years since Spider-Man spiralled across our screens. While the iconic superhero is sharpening his spider senses, the face behind the mask will change. Andrew Garfield will take over the mantle from Toby Maguire as the web crusader.

Andrew Garfield Is The New Spider-Man

Twenty seven year old Andrew Garfield was last seen as Eduardo Saverin in the Facebook biopic The Social Network. The British actor will be seen as the geeky Peter Parker in his red-and-blue suit. The film, a prequel to the previous movies, explores Parker’s high school days.

Though the title of the film has not been decided, it is set tol release in July 2012 in 3D. The film is directed by Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer) and co-stars Emma Stone (Superbad, Zombieland), Rhys Ifans (Notting Hill, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows), with a role by our very own Irrfan Khan.
