What's the take on the Spider-Man character this time? "He’s a lone wolf… Erratic, angry, rebellious," Andrew Garfield told Total Film recently. "Peter is an outsider.

And, with the announcement that it'll depart from established continuity, shunning recent stars like Matt Smith and David Tennant and starting afresh.
