The Amazing Spider-Man is a 2012 American superhero film directed by Marc Webb based on the Marvel Comics superhero Spider-Man created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. It is the fourth Columbia Pictures film that portrays Spider-Man in film and is a reboot of the Sam Raimi film series with Andrew Garfield replacing Tobey Maguire as the title role of the superhero. The cast also includes Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy and Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt Connors. The film will portray Parker as his super powers are evolving in high school and will explore him trying to discover the truth behind the death of his parents, and discovering himself in the process. The film will also feature artificial webs, which are invented by Parker as they were in the comic book series, rather than the organic webs depicted in the previous films.

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, 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, 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.

Themes and analysis
"I have tried to capture how Peter copes with the feelings of being an underdog, his confusions and his self-doubt. This, I hope, has brought, a certain empathy and sensitivity to his character that explains how it helps him become the hero that he eventually turns out to be."
Director Marc Webb described the film as "a story about a kid who grows up looking for his father and finds himself." Both Webb and star Andrew Garfield described Peter Parker as an outsider by choice, as someone hard to get close to. As in the early comic books, the character "is a science whiz. If you look back to the early Stan Lee and Steve Ditko comics, he’s a nerd with big glasses," said Webb. He explained "the idea of what a nerd is has changed in 40 or 50 years. Nerds are running the world. Andrew Garfield made a movie [called The Social Network] about it. ... What was important in those early comics was this notion that Peter Parker is an outsider and how we define that in a contemporary context." Garfield compared his Spider-Man as a metaphor for internet anonymity, saying, "You feel the power of it, the power of not being seen, the power of the mask. Peter becomes witty when he's got that protective layer. It's like he's on a message board. He's got the anonymity of the Internet within that suit, and he can say whatever the hell he likes, and he can get away with anything." Garfield also tried to explore Parker as an orphan, which he feels "are the strongest human beings on the planet." He said Parker is "a human hero [who] goes through all of the same struggles that we all have gone through, especially the skinny ones [who] want more power than they feel they have." He believes Parker he represents "a very inspiring, aspirational character that symbolizes goodness — and how difficult it is to be good — but how worth it is."

Following director Sam Raimi and star Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man 3, Sony Pictures Entertainment announced a May 5, 2011, release date for the next film in the series. By this time, screenwriters James Vanderbilt, David Lindsay-Abaire, and Gary Ross had all written rejected versions of a script, and Alvin Sargent, who wrote the second and third films and was married to franchise producer Laura Ziskin, was working on yet another attempt. Raimi wanted John Malkovich to play the villain in this version. However, on January 11, 2010, Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios announced they were rebooting the series with a new cast and crew, with industry reports saying Raimi had told Columbia parent Sony Pictures he could not meet the scheduled release date and retain creative integrity. Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, and Ziskin, who were always involved with the franchise, continued on as producers.

In May 2010, The Hollywood Reporter said the actors who met with director Marc Webb to be considered for the lead role included Jamie Bell, Alden Ehrenreich, Frank Dillane, Andrew Garfield, and Josh Hutcherson, and in June 2010 the Los Angeles Times reported that the shortlist had expanded to include Aaron Johnson and Anton Yelchin. At least Bell, Ehrenreich, Garfield, Yelchin, Logan Lerman and Michael Angarano had screen tests. On July 1, 2010, it was confirmed that the role would go to Garfield. Webb stated that he felt he knew Garfield was the right guy when they were filming a scene not in the film where he was eating a cheeseburger while telling the character Gwen to calm down.
Sony would then hold auditions for the role of a young Peter Parker, somebody who would resemble Garfield in looks. Webb said, "I think we saw the origin of Spider-Man before but not the origin of Peter Parker." Webb felt that when you try to build the film you must also build the protagonist in the ground up. That's why he wants to introduce Peter Parker as a small child.
Principal photography began on December 6, 2010 in Los Angeles. A working title for the film was revealed to be dubbed Fiona's Tale. The 90-day film shoot also includes two weeks in New York City, while the bulk of filming occurred in and around Los Angeles, including such locations as the Henry Fonda Theater in Hollywood, St. John Bosco High School's Gym, Immanuel Presbyterian Church in Mid-Wilshire, and various locations around South Pasadena, San Pedro, and Woodland Hills. Sony Entertainment spokesman Steve Elzer says "this is the fourth Spider-Man production we have shot primarily in Los Angeles and for good reason, the crews here are the best in the world but there is a comfort level in producing a project of this size and scope on your own backlot." He continued, "Basing the film on the lot also makes it easier for producers to interact with Sony’s in-house visual effects team, and gives the studios greater control of quality and security."
The company 3ality Technica of Burbank, California was involved with shooting the equipment for the 3D for the film. The film is reported to be the first to be lensed in 3D using 3ality Digital's TS-5 wireless and handheld beamsplitter mirror rig. 3ality technology helped make it possible for the film not to be post-converted to 3D. About 3D Webb explained that he wanted to create a new 3D experience for Spider-Man: "Because we're shooting in 3D, I wanted to conceive of certain things very specifically for 3D. There's an experimental component to 3D that's fascinating and we're experimenting with generating that point of view – so you feel what Peter Parker feels, you feel what Spider-Man feels when he's jumping over buildings and over the streets

James Horner has been hired to write the score for the film. When hearing Horner's first musical cue, Webb described it as being "spectacular". Webb said he wanted to find a composer to understand both grandeur and intimacy and he felt that James was a genius at that. "I wanted to to create a score that felt massive and huge but also intimate and small." Webb told Collider at the Wondercon in Anaheim, California.
