It’s been a busy week for Spider-Fans. Five days ago we debuted an official photo of Andrew Garfield wearing Spider-Man‘s iconic red and blue tights and yesterday, we reported on Emma Stone’s confirmation that Peter Parker will utilize mechanical web-shooters in the reboot.
Today, we’re getting a batch of on-the-scene set photos from the Spider-Man shoot in Los Angeles – including one long-range shot of the comic book hero in action.
Despite its New York storyline, the Spider-Man reboot is scheduled to shoot primarily in Los Angeles – to take advantage of the West Coast/Hollywood resources. This particular set of photos comes from last night’s shoot outside of the Museum of Contemporary Art – on Grand Avenue.
The first image, courtesy of OnLocationVacations, features Spider-Man on foot – dodging traffic. The quality of the photo is poor (to say the least) but should give eager fans a quick snack, ahead of more official images.
Despite featuring a fully costumed Spider-Man, mask and all, the image quality makes it hard to do much speculating – or to give us an indication of whether we’ll be seeing a “Classic” Spidey visage or the more-modern “Big Eye” mask introduced by Todd McFarlane in the 90s (as well as featured in the Ultimate series).
In addition to the Spidey-in-action shot. The Daily Blam! has some static shots of prop-vehicles from the set including a Daily Bugle van, a NYPD SUV, and a caution sign featuring a curiously lizard-like animal.
Aside from the not-so-subtle lizard preparing to nip at the finger in the caution sign, the prop photos don’t hold much mystery – only offering a simple glimpse at how director Marc Webb is transforming Los Angeles into the Big Apple for the Spider-Man reboot. Even the website for The Daily Bugle (as featured on the side of the van) merely redirects to the website for the Mid-Ohio Comic Con.
We’ll keep you posted as more photos from the Los Angeles Spider-Man shoot appear.
The Spider-Man reboot swings into 2D and 3D theaters around the U.S. on July 3rd, 2012.
