One of the greatest strengths of Marc Webb's maybe-too-soon reboot is an opportunity to recast the roles from Sam Raimi's trilogy with a truly impressive ensemble. Like many of the best superhero movies today, "The Amazing Spider-Man" attracted some major talents, so in honor of that film's release, we're taking a look back at each cast member's best movie.
Andrew Garfield - "Red Riding: In the Year of Our Lord 1980"
Though he primarily appears in the first film of the trilogy, Garfield kicks off the "Red Riding" series with a lead role in the strongest entry. In "1980," the actor dons his almost forgotten English accent as Eddie Dunford, crack journo from the north country, who is just about the only man daring enough to investigate the case of disappearing children. The entire series is worth watching, but Garfield really stands out here.
Emma Stone - "Superbad"
The role that started it all and the one that set the tone for her cool, sarcastic persona, "Superbad" announced the arrival of Emma Stone. As Jules, Stone's character is the impetus for all of the mayhem that goes down between Jonah Hill and Michael Cera, and in a few short scenes, she demonstrates why she has become one of the most likable actresses in working in Hollywood.
