First official look at Andrew Garfield in full Spider-Man costume
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Sony today did two things with the upcoming Spider-Man reboot that we’ve been waiting for. First, they gave the film an official title THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN. Not too original, but at least it’s in line with the comics. Second, they released the photo below, which is the first look at Spider-Man in full costume (we’ve already seen Andrew Garfield without the mask). I’m not a Spider-Man aficionado, so I can’t point out all the pros and cons of the costume. To me, it looks almost exactly like the one Tobey Maguire used to wear, except this one has the man-made web shooters (which I don’t like).
So now the only thing we need is a trailer, which we probably won’t get until this summer in front of movies like CAPTAIN AMERICA or THOR. I think a lot of fans are still skeptical about the webslinger reboot, but Sony is doing a nice job of countering the leaked photos with some much nicer official pics. The film hits theaters on July 3, 2012 and stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Sally Field and Denis Leary. Marc Webb is directing.
