New Peter Parker, part 2

So, one day after I post another actor had been cast, today Sony turns around an announces some one else. The gits.

"After a comprehensive worldwide casting search, Andrew Garfield has been chosen to portray Peter Parker when Spider-Man swings back onto the screen in 3D on July 3, 2012. The new film will begin production in early December directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt. Laura Ziskin and Avi Arad will produce the film from Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios."

For many Doctor Who fans, Garfield -born in Los Angeles, but raised in the UK - played Frank in the two-part episode Daleks in Manhattan/Evolution of the Daleks.

So, with a good script, and new up and coming lead actor they are still resorting to 3-D? Nice way to say, "We have no confidence our product is worth our time or your money."
