ComicBookMovie.com fan site contributor Josh Wilding has compiled 25 Fun Facts About “The Amazing Spider-Man.” Here is a sampling of what Wilding writes about star Andrew Garfield’s preparation for the physically demanding role:
Andrew Garfield worked with personal trainer Armando Alarcon six days a week for six months to prepare for the role of Spider-Man. Garfield also worked with stunt coordinator Andy Armstrong and his team, doing trampoline work, power core moves, basketball skills, martial arts, gymnastic and parkour work, as well as skateboard skills.
Armstrong and his stunt team maintained a training camp in a warehouse near Sony Pictures Studios, where Garfield worked with top instructors in each of several disciplines. The warehouse featured several elements of buildings, walls and other environments from the film, which the team used to recreate, rehearse and perfect the action sequences.
