The Amazing Spider-Man

: I can't seem to find a thread for the first Sam Raimi Spider-man movie. Surely there was one!
Not necessarily. You and I saw the first film with Steve Lansingh back in 2002, when we were all participants in the Chiaroscuro message board; the A&F board didn't go live until the summer of 2003.
(Does the A&F board still host an archive of the older discussion board? Or do we have to pin all our hopes now on web.archive.org?)

In other news, I was able to track down the following threads on the original film, on the old Novogate board:
- 'Spider-man -UPDATED- with Movieguide review' (Apr 29 - May 9, 2002)
- 'I saw "Spider-Man"!', page two (May 2 - 6, 2002)
- 'spider-man, shadowlands, son of paleface' (May 5 - 16, 2002)

Is it considered spoilers to talk about Gwen Stacy's fate in the comics? It's been 37 years after all.

Commenting on the announcement, Tolmach said, “We have been very fortunate to attract some of the best actors working today to play the villains in the Spider-Man movies, and it is exciting to see that trend continue with Rhys Ifans. After seeing his performance in our upcoming film Anonymous, we’re in awe of his talent and think he’s the perfect choice to take on this role.”
The filmmakers prefer to not reveal which character Ifans will be playing in the forthcoming film.
Webb added, “What sets the Spider-Man villains apart is the complexity of their relationships with Peter Parker. Rhys' incredible ability to embody both warmth and rage makes him the ideal choice for this character.
Spider-Man is being overseen at the studio by Tolmach and Rachel O'Connor. Ifans is represented by United Talent Agency, Brillstein Entertainment Partners, and Independent Talent Group.
RHYS IFANS’ breakout performance came in 1999 in Roger Michell’s Notting Hill, opposite Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant, for which he received a BAFTA Film Award nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role. Prior to that, Ifans starred in Heart, Twin Town, August, and Dancing at Lughnasa, and since then, he has appeared in more than 20 films, including Vanity Fair; Rancid Aluminium, Little Nicky; The Replacements; Hannibal Rising, Enduring Love; Human Nature; Formula 51; Hotel; The Shipping News; Once Upon A Time in the Midlands, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, Pirate Radio; Greenberg; and Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang. He will next appear in Mr. Nice, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Passion Play, and Columbia Pictures’ Anonymous, for director Roland Emmerich.
On television, he played the role of Peter Cook in Terry Johnson’s “Not Only But Always,” for which he won the BAFTA TV Award for Best Actor. He also appeared in “A Number.” In the theatre, Ifans has appeared in “Accidental Death of an Anarchist,” “Bad Finger,” “Volpone,” “Under Milk Wood,” “Beautiful Thing,” “Thyesters,” and, most recently, Patrick Marber's adaptation of “Don Juan in Soho” at the Donmar Warehouse.

Yeah, but what about "Rhino played by a skinny actor but then beefed-up in post-production using the magic of CG"? Ick.
