The Amazing Spider-Man Tied to Sam Raimi’s Original Trilogy

The Amazing Spider-Man, a new Marvel Studios reboot of the popular superhero, has been considered in the press to be a straight-up reestablishing of the Peter Parker character and his particular comic book mythos. Marvel Executive producer Avi Arad has come forward to say that isn’t entirely true.

While director Marc Webb has a new Peter Parker in Andrew Garfield, the upcoming first installment of this new reboot will still have ties to Sam Raimi’s original Spider-Man trilogy.

Here is what Avi Arad had to say.

“It’s not a comeback. You have to look at it this way: Do you want to know more about The Amazing Spider-Man? This movie is going to tell stories that you didn’t see in movies 1, 2, and 3.”

Avi Arad went onto say that The Amazing Spider-Man doesn’t erase the Sam Raimi films, but instead has a storyline that could have taken place in the context of the original Spider-Man.

The Amazing Spider-Man comes to theaters July 3rd, 2012
