Spider-Man Reboot Gets Amazing Title, New Web Shooting Image

“Spider-Man”? “Spider-Man 4″? “Spider-Man 3D”? None of the above. Call him “The Amazing Spider-Man” from now on.

Via the film’s Facebook page and very sparse official site, Marc Webb’s Spider-Man reboot has received its official title, plus this new image of a slingin’, web-shootin’ Andrew Garfield (we assume that that’s Garfield in the costume) showing off his mechanical web shooters.

“The Amazing Spider-Man” stars Garfield as Peter Parker, high school nerd turned superhero, with Emma Stone as his love interest Gwen Stacy. Also in the cast, Martin Sheen, Rhys Ifans, Sally Field, C. Thomas Howell, Irrfan Khan, Denis Leary, Julianne Nicholson, and Campbell Scott.

Spidey swings amazingly into action next year July 3, 2012.

    Personally I disagree with the whole web-shooter thingamagick. I mean spiderman is supposed to have spider powers yeah? So if he doesn’t have organic webbing, what stops me from calling me gecko man or something of the sort? Wall climbing, agility, etc. are not exactly the kind of properties that can only be attributed to spiders. Web spinning however…

    • http://www.originalgeekspodcast.com/ Dedpool

      Yeah but Stan lee came up with the web-shooters because he wanted the character to spin wbes but didnt want it to be like a real spider with it coming from the butt. So he created the artificial ones. The Raimi movies had the organic ones but it was missing something with him having unlimited webbing and such. This is a return the classic version of Spidey.

        still reckon they should of just stick with the whole organic web spinning out the hands. it never bothered me about how he could do it. i mean how does superman fly? he just does.

    I have to admit i love what i see. Not only are we getting the real HS setting of Peter Parker but Gwen Stacy!!!! Will we have a tragic ending? That would be cool. Maybe now we can have Mysterio, Chameleon Molten Man and Hydro man. I was never a fan of the original three. There was no spidey humor. and to this day I hated the Green Goblin costume. And let us not forget Ninja snowboarding Goblin from three. Also lets be honest Kirsten Dunst looks nothing close to the real Mary Jane not even remotely attractive. So hopefully we have a winner. Can’t wait for summer 2012.

      I completely agree with Green Goblin’s costume from the first fim, New Goblin’s ridiculousness from the third and the general casting of Kristen Dunst as MJ. She could have pulled off an okay Gwen but MJ?!?!? MJ is supposed to be a bombshell. Every teenager’s idea of the perfect girl. I see Rachel Nichols or Christine Hendricks in the role. For this franchise I guess they’ll be going a little younger than those gals though. I’ll have to do some more thinking on a younger choice for MJ.

  • Theagent0fgod

    Damn, I Can’t wait for summer 2011. I didn’t like Kirsten Dunst for MJ either and her constant ability to get into trouble in each movie, 3 times in the 1st movie alone.

  • Lexavi80

    Yup!. As I said before… I have NOTHING bad to say about this movie. so far I’ve been liking it, and by the look of this official (very well finished) production pic, I’m even happier.

    Looking good…

  • fedoraman

    looks pretty good, i’ll try and keep an open mind until i actually see the movie, but i’m hopin!

  • Doug Dominicali

    OMG
    How Peter Parker can make a uniform like that? Manually?!! He would need it of the better seamstress ever

    …and of course, he has no money for this! LOL

    If I understand correctly, and maybe I am wrong, a re-boot would entail going back to the origins of the Spiderman? If yes, then this so did not need a bloody “re-boot”. I mean how old is the series itself? Not all films in a franchise can be great. This is the same audience which went gaga over the Raimi flicks, now just because one of them was not up to mark we have to go through Spiderman’s history one more time? I remember the film sites and forums flooded with fans, drooling with expectations just a decade back. And how everyone declared SPIDERMAN 2 as one of the best super hero flicks ever! Does it take just one sub-par film to take away all that love? They should just have gone ahead with a different cast and crew if they wanted to instead of going for a re-boot. Plus, I am not too excited about the cast either.

    But for everyone who is going to be spending money to go and watch this I hope I am dead wrong and this turns out to be great. For the studio which is trying to cash on this great new business of “re-booting” I hope this sucks.
