Huge 'Spider-Man' News

HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - The web of secrecy is beginning to unravel on "The Amazing Spider-Man."

Already, of course, we know that Andrew Garfield is starring as a confused, teenage Peter Parker, and that Marc Webb is taking the story back to its roots. We know what Garfield's superhero-tight costume looks like, too. Now, thanks to a slipup from co-star C. Thomas Howell, we get full confirmation on who the wall crawler will be fighting, and how it goes down, too.

Howell, whose role was unclear until now, gave some major info to Retro Radio Podcast. Thanks to Movieweb, you can find out who the villain -- or at least one of them -- is in the new film.

There is not a whole lot to talk about. Sony wants us to be hush-hush right now. I play a relatively small role. I play a construction worker who's son is caught in the middle of a battle between the Lizard and Spider-Man on the Manhattan bridge. Spider-Man helps me get my son back from this perilous situation. There is some payback there at the end of the movie. Spider-man is kind of hurting. I help him when all of the other people won't. Part of the story is, the nation thinks he might be a bad guy. They don't know what to think. Because of my experience on the bridge with my kid, I know he is a good guy. I pitch in and help out at the end. That is the best way."

The questioning of Spider-Man's motivations and loyalties is a longtime subplot in the series; first, the city is unsure about him, and then, Daily Bugle publisher J. Jonah Jameson runs a public campaign against him in the paper. Given that the film feature's Spider-Man's early days, the former is certain to happen; whether the newspaper mess does, too, remains to be seen.

Speaking of Spider-Man's origin story, a copy of the first comic book he appeared in, "Amazing Fantasy No. 15," recently sold for $1.1 million.

    PULLMAN, Wash. - Six-year-old Denny Curran should be enjoying his last few days of summer before first grade. He should be teasing his brother, splashing in the pool, giving his parents a hard time about vegetables. Instead, Denny is dead, the victim of a horrific, freak bicycle accident that could happen to your child too. "Denny was an extraordinary child," his father Keith Curran told KHQ.
