Introducing… The Amazing Spider-Man!

915556 - Spider-Man 2012

Well, it’s taken Columbia Pictures four movies and however many focus groups to arrive at the conclusion that the Spider-Man reboot should carry the title of the original 1963 comic book – The Amazing Spider-Man.

Funny that they take the comic’s original title and then give us an altered Spidey suit. The blue filips on the gloves and boots are really unattractive – but we get the web shooters from the comics, so maybe that evens things out. At least we’ve finally gotten a shot of Andrew Garfield in the full suit. That has to count for something, right?

The film, which is now in production and is being shot entirely in 3D, will be released on July 3, 2012.  The film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan, Martin Sheen, and Sally Field.  The film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt and Alvin Sargent and Steve Kloves based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.
