“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.
