Chris Zylka Elaborates On His Portrayal Of Flash Thompson In THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN

The actor who plays the role of Peter Parker's high school rival Flash Thompson, speaks out about how his Flash is just a bit more different than the ones previously seen in the comics and Sam Raimi's Spider-Man films, and more. Check it out after the jump.

The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents' disappearance - leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr Curt Connors (Ifans), his father's former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors' alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.

Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man has garnered mixed reception and has fared well commercially, and can be seen in theaters now. While some fans have claimed that the film has been what they have wanted, others have simply stated how underwhelmed they felt at what was supposed to be a new story with fresh takes on the characters from the popular Spider-Man mythos. Speaking of fresh takes, Chris Zylka has offered that his role as Flash Thompson won't be what we've seen so far in previous portrayals of the character. Read on below, and for the full interview, head on over to Latino Times.

Chris Sharing his thoughts on what Makes his Flash Different:
He’s a bit more rough around the edges than you’ve previously seen him. He has a bit more complexity to him than just some bully who picks on kids for the fun of it. He’s in some ways tormenting himself while picking on Peter.

On which version of Spider-Man that impacts him the most:
Like everyone else on the planet, I saw the Raimi films, and fell in love with the story and the character. It’s going to be exciting to see how attached people will get to our version of the story, which is quite different.

Chris on what it was like to work with Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone:
They’re both wonderful, giving actors. They’ve proved themselves in depictions of characters for years now. From what I saw on set no one will be disappointed in their choices in this film either.

The Amazing Spider-Man stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Denis Leary, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, and Sally Field, the film is now playing at your local theater!
