So begins a series of featurettes that start with an actor naming their character. The first of these is with Emma Stone, who looks every bit the twenty-three-going-on-forty-year-old teenager. One that smokes four packs a day. Honestly, she’s seventeen years old.
The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Martin Sheen) and Aunt May (Sally Field). 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 (Emma Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets.
