[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. 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.
The Amazing Spider-Man swings into theaters (in 3D)on July 3, 2012.
