Spiderman swings into action

Spidey repels around New York during filming of the fourth film of the franchise.

It's not known if the masked web-slinger is actor Andrew Garfield or a stunt double, but either way, we can't wait to see the finished product.

Andrew takes up Tobey Maguire's mantle in the upcoming blockbuster, fresh from his success as co-founder of Facebook Eduardo Saverin in The Social Network.

It's been revealed that the fourth film of the franchise will be a 'prequel', based on the school life of Peter Parker, and the director has already been praising Garfield's performance.

"He has a combination of intelligence, wit, and humanity. Mark my words, you will love Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker."

Filming is will continue this year with the UK release date earmarked for June 2012.
