The new Spiderman is no longer starred by Tobey Maguire and directed by Sam Raimi. They were dropped out amid rumors of creative differences between Raimi and Sony Pictures Entertainment concerning the script.
Andrew Garfield will replace the position vacated by Maguire as Peter Parker and Marc Webb will direct the movie.
Webb’s well-known movie is the low-budget 500 Days of Summer while Garfield is famous with his roles on Boy A and The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
