After all the speculation, Sony has announced the new Peter Parker/Spider-Man for the reboot of the franchise.

Andrew Garfield has won the coveted role of the famous webslinger. "Though his name may be new to many, those who know this young actor's work understand his extraordinary talents," director Marc Webb said of Garfield. "He has a rare combination of intelligence, wit, and humanity."

The new film will go back in time to when Peter Parker was in high school, where he will struggle with the knowledge that his uncle died despite his power to stop it. (Wasn't this done in the first film? It will be interesting to see it redone)

Garfield has been in Boy A and The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and can be seen in The Social Network alongside Justin Timberlake & Jesse Eisenberg.

I've seen Boy A with Garfield and his acting was great. It will be interesting to see him as Spider-Man. The film is set to open in 3D on July 3, 2012 and will start production in December.
