Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

More Spidey talke. Kevin Feige confirms that the webslinger will not be teaming up with other teams like The Avengers:

"No. I think obviously in the comics, the team-ups and mix-ups have kept publishing going for many years. But Spider-Man has a huge universe of its own, so many villains, foes and friends " It's not something we're thinking about because we have so much more to tell."

Andrew Garfield moves to reassure those who missed the wise-cracking Spidey of the comics in the Raimi movies:

Garfield's portrait, however, will be as quick-witted as he is fleet-footed, all involved assure. "They hired a comedic actor to wear the suit and he does the jokes," Garfield reveals. "He's brilliant. Judd Apatow is in the suit."
And Marc Webb talks stunts and SFX:

"Because we were shooting this in 3D, I wanted to conceive of certain things very specifically for 3D. There's an experiential component to 3D that is really, really fantastic. We're experimenting with generating that point of view -- so that you feel what Peter Parker feels and what Spider-Man feels when he's jumping over buildings and over the streets and that sort of thing. But we made -- and Andrew had to pay the price for this -- a very conscious effort to ground the stunts.
"We had an incredible stunt team put together. They built this whole rig -- hundreds of feet long " in Harlem, and we swung a man through traffic, down the street. They also built a car rig with a series of wires that was incredibly complicated and really a beautiful contraption, to help do those effects practically.
"That was something that I thought was really, really exciting and exhilarating to explore, not to mention an incredible level of acrobatics."
