Amazing Spider-man Reboot Details Revealed4/16/2012 11:21 AM EDT
"I wanted to give the audience something new, so that started off with getting underneath the parents' story, which will unfold over probably a few movies," Webb told MTV. "We don't totally wrap up that story in this first movie. It's sort of an on-going mystery. That was something that was interesting to me."
One element of the original story that drew Webb to Spiderman that was left out of the Raimi films totally was the death of Peter Parker's parents Richard and Mary, both were shield agents and both died in a plane crash while on assignment.
"There are elements that we were very conscious of," says Webb, "but it all emanated from (the idea of) this kid who got left behind by his parents many, many years before. I thought that was interesting enough for me to explore."
"This is probably a reveal," he continues, "but there is no wrestling match in this movie. The character is evolving in a different way. It's about finding a balance between iconic elements of the Spider-Man mythology. Uncle Ben's death transforms him emotionally, but it happens in a different way."
The Amazing Spider Man will be in theatres July 3rd.
Countdown to the release of The Amazing Spider Man, with the iPhone Movie Clock App.
