Speaking at a press conference in Tokyo, stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone and producers Avi Arad and Matthew Tolmach explained the relationships in the reboot.

“In our movie, [Peter] finds his true love,”

said Arad.

Gwen Stacy was always the true love of Peter Parker.
“We found a very, very good story about what makes a human being. About what sets their destiny.”

He also said that there is a connection between Rhys Ifans‘s Dr Connors/The Lizard and the heroes.

“We introduce our villain Dr Connors and in the great tradition of Marvel, Dr Connors is going to be connected to Peter Parker and, in our case even more interesting, to Gwen Stacy,”

said Arad.

“Right there, the challenge of having to deal with a villain who is a mentor and the only one who you can look at and say, ‘So what really happened to my dad?’ That’s a very hard person to fight.”

When asked if the film would duplicate the Sam Raimi movie’s upside-down kiss, Stone said:

“You don’t want to know. You want to watch the movie and find out.

“Plus, it would be weird if we were like, ‘There’s something iconic coming up!’ You’ve got to decide if it’s iconic or not. But there is a nice first kiss and it’s different than the upside-down one. And we liked it.”

The Amazing Spider-Man will open in cinemas on July 3, 2012.
