We previously posted b-roll videos of “The Amazing Spider-Man” and in one of those videos there is some behind-the-scene footage of Stan Lee filming his cameo in the film. Well, IGN had the opportunity to talk to the “Spider-Man” co-creator about his cameo and creating Spider-Man.
Stan the Man thinks “Peter is probably the most empathic fictional character around in comics.” Lee wanted to create a hero who was a teenager and made his life “less than perfect” because he wanted his readers to relate to the character. Lee added that he wanted the Peter Parker character to be “very smart” and “kind of a nerd” before Peter becomes Spider-Man.
Next, he talks about his cameo scene in “The Amazing Spider-Man,” stating “it’s one of the cleverest scenes that I have ever seen in an action movie.” As far as him doing cameos in Marvel films, Stan Lee loves doing them and “it’s the most fun that you can have without laughing.”
Stan ends the interview with him being appreciative by “Spider-Man” fans when they tell Stan that they’re grateful for his “Peter Parker” stories.
Finally, we have three new TV spots of the film rolled into one video. It features some new footage of the film that is action packed. Check it out for yourself below:
- “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 directed the film and James Vanderbilt wrote the screenplay. “The Amazing Spider-Man” stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, C. Thomas Howell, Annie Parisse, Chris Zylka, Embeth Davidtz and Irrfan Khan.
