[Update: Check out a new image of Andrew Garfield in Costume as Spidey!]

Come next weekend when Captain America: The First Avenger debuts in theaters, this summer will have seen four major DC-Marvel comic book films. 2012 will be no different in its genre offerings and next week at Comic-Con, we’ll get up close and personal with a summer 2012 comic book flick we’re curious and excited for: The Amazing Spider-Man.

Rebooting Sony’s cash cow franchise only a few years after Sam Raimi and Toby Maguire’s trilogy of Spidey adventures, The Amazing Spider-Man introduces an entirely new cast, headlined by Andrew Garfield who steps into the shoes of geeky college student, Peter Parker. Always a point of contention among comic book readers is of course the hero’s costume and Garfield’s red and blue attire is no different.

We got our first look at the new Amazing Spider-Man costume back in February and since then, have been treated to a variety of set photos from the downtown shoot in New York. While those fuzzy images gave us a good look at the mechanical web shooters being employed in Marc Webb’s version of Spider-Man, we haven’t had a clear close-up of the new costume until now.

UPDATE: Now, check out Andrew Garfield in full costume as Spidey, gracing the cover of EW‘s Comic-Con issue! (Click to enlarge.)

While this image reveals nothing new compared to what we’ve seen in the set photos of the costume and web-slinging images from months prior, it does offer much more detail into the mask and chest logo, re-affirming that this costume does feel like it’s torn straight from the books.

Photos aside, it all depends on the story, characters and tone of the film and next week, Screen Rant heads to San Diego for Comic-Con International where Sony will reveal the first footage for The Amazing Spider-Man, hopefully confirming what we heard yesterday about the film’s teaser trailer.

The Amazing Spider-Man was written by James Vanderbilt, Steve Kloves and Alvin Sargent and stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Embeth Davidtz, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan and Chris Zylka.

  1. 2012 is going to rock,Avengers,Spiderman,Batman and Superman in one year-extinction level event.The EW cover looks good.

  2. LOL. Everyone’s a critic. His eyes are too small, they are not white enough, they are not yellow enough, blah blah blah. Some of you need serious help. Really….you do. Try to be positive.

    And, by the way, the suit looks good. I really cant complain about the look. It’s different than Tobey’s suit and closer to the actual comic book.

    • I’m not saying that the eyes being small is a bad thing, i’m just not really used to it.

    • Totally agree alpine. The Nit Picking is so annoying. The Kid looks like freaking spiderman, whats the problem?

    • What part of the title “Screen Rant” do you not get? Critiquing what we are shown is the whole purpose of the site. If we were all sweetness and light and everything was just gosh wiz great and jim dandy you’d be bored stiff.

  3. I guess to be fair they seem like they’re trying, so if you can ignore the retread parts of the story line and the web/costume issues and the goofy guy that they decided to get to play the character it could be something some fans will want to see. I understand the popularity of the property heil I like the property and have since.. well I won’t go into that, but you get what I mean…

    • Toby Mcguire looks a lot more goofy than this kid …

      • Really! Look at the second picture of Garfield here and tell me he doesn’t look goofier than McGuire?! I can’t see Garfield being either character but especially Parker. However, to each his own, if you wanted him you got him, live with it good or bad…

  4. Looks like it’s made out of a basketball. Look…

  5. The eye rims look like cheap sunglasses.

    • HA!… that’s because they’re made from sunglassesx) To make it more realistic, he makes the suit(shows him sewing it up), makes the eyes(literally pops lenses out of shades) and makes the web shooters, and while it doesn’t show it, the bottom of his suit(feet) are the bottoms of shoes he wears in the movie. Far more realistic/respectable than drawing up a costume design, then just popping up with this intricate, detailed Spiderman suit. (*cough cough* Original trilogy)

  6. this is metrosexual chinless spiderman….

    • Not to mention that gazelle like neck.

  7. I like the costume it looks like something a kid would make unlike Toby’s which looks like it was professionally made

  8. My only issue with this film is that Andrew Garfield, although I love him as an actor, has a god awful American accent. Watch the Doctor Who episode “Evolution of the Daleks” and you’ll see what I’m talking about. Really hope I’m wrong and it turns out that he’s been practicing.

  9. I just think it’s horrible really. There’s that air of ‘change for changes sake’ about it, which amounts to pointless and silly tinkering, like with Superman’s costume in Superman Returns. I am not optimistic about this film, there was no need at all to reboot the franchise which was so successful.

  10. His head looks like a dodgeball… Total failgasm. :(

  11. I don’t really feel like a lot of the criticism over this makes sense.

    People complain that this suit doesn’t look like it could be made from a kid yet they say it looks like its made out of basketballs. That COULD actually be one of the materials he uses to make it, I mean, its not very hard for a high school kid to get a hold of a few basketballs and a spandex suit if you ask me =/

    Another thing people have been saying is that Andrew Garfield is too goofy to play Pete… which makes me think they no nothing about Spider-Man who is usually portrayed as the goofiest of outcast who just doesn’t fit in, often making jokes during battle to add on to this. So in my eyes that’s another good thing.

    One thing I do agree on though, is that the lenses are oddly small which I think looks weird, but as far as the actual look, they look ten times better on screen and in official photos s to each his own.

  12. My concern isn’t about his character so much as the goofy look in the picture! It destroys any resemblance he has to Peter in the comics. Additionally an alter ego is just that, a personality that’s different from the one he shows everyday, just like he changes to student clothing to Spider-man’s costume. I’m just wondering when that face he makes comes out, and you could almost bet it will, how many people will be literally taken out of the movie experience?! x-/ I know I would. all light heartedness aside, my real problem with this is it’s another retread of the origin story. I’m tired and disappointed that they’ll give thirty plus minutes to that. I figure skip this one and pick up the next one for a better experience. The story won’t be wearing lead galoshes, which is kind of funny in retrospect seeing the metallic looking production booties he’s been shown in…

    • The first thing I said when I saw this picture is that he looks way more like Peter Parker than Tobey ever did.

  13. OH cr*p I just stopped on the “Entertainment” mag cover on the way back up, he does have a giraffe neck… :D

    • Its photoshoped. They do it all the time.

  14. Does the costume come with fluffy hand cuffs and a bull whip?

  15. “…this costume does feel like it’s torn straight from the books.”

    Um… not really. It is similar, but the gloves, boots, lack of belt, visible web-shooters and spider symbol all differentiate it from the comic. I always laughed at how great Peter’s sewing skills must be in order to make his costume and this is much busier than the original.

    I really dislike the external web-shooters. I keep looking for a clunky utility belt, along the lines of Nicholas Hammond’s.
