Amazing Spider-Man pre-orders include Rhino Challenge, playable Stan Lee

Activision has announced pre-order bonuses for The Amazing Spider-Man in North America from Amazon and GameStop.

Here's the rundown:

  • Pre-order from GameStop and you'll net The Rhino Challenge - Unlockable for PS3 and Xbox 360 only - Take control of the massive, genetically engineered villain RHINO and rampage around Manhattan in an exclusive gameplay challenge of pure destruction! As Rhino, players will be able to unleash his formidable powers to destroy anything and everything that gets in his way in a timed event full of speed, combo streaks, and of course, a ton of things to break! While supplies last. Limited time only.
  • Pre-order from Amazon, and you can play as Stan Lee - Unlockable for PS3 and Xbox 360 only - For the first time ever, fans will be able to play...STAN...LEE as himself in The Amazing Spider-Man. Players will take on the role of Stan "The Man" Lee in his own special mission across Manhattan, borrowing abilities from his old pal Spider-Man as they help Stan collect pages of his latest script in a spectacular race around Manhattan. Stan's mission is punctuated with his witty banter that fans have come to know and love, and a special surprise waits for them at the end of the mission - after all, it is Spider-Man's 50th anniversary this year! While supplies last. Limited time only.

Lee said it wasn't "easy" for him when it came to "practicing all these moves," for the game.

"I’m just afraid when they see me do it, that may put Spider-Man in the shadows," he told Yahoo. "I hope they don’t have me looking too realistic and life-like. That would be tough for the Spider-Man fans. I swung through the city like an average guy would do, instead of giving it my usual derring-do."

Looking over the screenshot, Lee looks, well, like Stan Lee. So much for not looking very realistic.

The Amazing Spider-Man is out in the US on June 26 and in the UK on June 29 for 3DS, DS, PS3, Wii and Xbox 360.
