garfield spider man Spider Man Set Photos Catch Masked Spidey in Traffic

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.

Last, we’ve got set photos from an earlier shoot featuring Denis Leary as George Stacy, courtesy of PacificCoastNews (via ComingSoon).


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.

Follow us on Twitter @benkendrick and @screenrant and let us know what you think of the photos.

  1. ok a couple of things here , spidey looks alot brighter in this shot meaning the blue is very blue and the red is really red, and why is he running through the streets, is this one of those im out of web fluid moments.

  2. SPidey must’ve run outta fluid. This outta be a rather hilarious scene. Hopefully soon we’ll get a better shot of the mask.

    Looks good so far!!!

  3. Are you sure that’s not just Ricky? I mean it could just be a drunk. lol

    • Foopher

      HAHA! good one ;)

  4. I got chills.

  5. Hey all check EMPIRE MAGAZINE http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Ftinyurl.com%2F49et36v&h=99a70 , there is the picture for X-MEN First Class, And its offical, I will not be seeing it WOW I MEAN WOW, HORRIBLE, WTF WERE THEY THINKING SERIOUSLY,that said January Jones looks hot as Frost, but the rest look terrible, and wait till you see Beast, shaking my head, i held out hope , and everything pointed to epic fail and there it is another crap fest X Men Movie , GOD DO I HATE FOX BIIIIIIIIGGGGGGGG FFFFFFFFFF UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU FOX !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • We’ll be covering this later this evening. A few sites jumped the gun. Look for Rob K’s full write-up soon.

      • yea fox needs to give back the damn rights. they cant even copy marvel formula right

    • oopps so sorry

  6. Dennis Leary in a Spiderman movie…what the hell is going on lol

  7. Hate that Leary is in this I’ve never missed one of his films or TV shows, but this look awful. Have a really difficult choice. Skip it? Or watch it some time down the road in the 1$ theater?

    • I’ll probably see it when my mother in law buys it on DVD for me as either a Birthday, Fathers Day or Xmas gift. :-)

      That’s how I’ve seen most of the Fox Abattoirs & Phony Sony bowel movements over the last few years. :-)

      I’m not ungrateful, but I’m glad I haven’t wasted my money at the cinema on counterfeit adaptations. :-)

  8. Like pics of bigfoot, blurry and really far away.

  9. This actor was in the Social Network, he’s a good actor but doesn’t have the right look for Parker imo.

    He’s also scary young looking, tall and skinny.

  10. First of all, who’s bright idea was it to make Dennis Leary a cop?!?! Hahaha. Must have never seen his stand-up! I definitely think that Leary is the ONLY one that could have replaced as Jonah Jameson!

  11. Oh my god. *looks shocked and impressed* What’s with the redirect to the MOC (Mid-Ohio Con) site? Will there be a big reveal or something there? I suddenly feel privileged to live here in Ohio, if that’s the case.

  12. oh man i had a laugh riot looking at spiderman in the photo lol looks soo bad

  13. http://www.movieweb.com/news/spider-man-drops-j-jonah-jameson


    • Thats okay with me. I honestly cant picture anyone else but JK simmons in the role. He was perfect. So ya… Still optimistic about the reboot!

      • yes but they might (im positive) have him in a sequel (which pretty sure is gonna happen) so if theyre gonna cast him then why not do it NOW?

        • It’s funny. Yesterday I commented on the open discussion how I thought Jolly Jonah wasn’t in THIS film. And look at that,I was right. He will definitely be in the sequel. It’s weird,I feel like I can see where this trilogy is going. I have a good feeling about it. I think its going to surprise everyone in the same way Batman Begins did. I know you guys remember all of the groaning mixed with hesitant optimism before that film came out.

  14. “I think you hear me knockin’ Spidey & I think I’m coming in and I’m bringing my sidearm and an NYPD helicopter with me.” :)

    • LOL,man LOL

  15. Rickster! there’s two possibilities.
    There going so far back to when Parker was born. We are going to see his elementary school days. The films last scene will be when he’s bit by the angry spider deal.

    This is all bs,,,


    Either way I’m not looking forward to this but I’m having fun bashing it, in my own subtile way!

    Rock on,,,

    • So thats why they cast Andrew Garfield!

      LOL jk :)

  16. Ya know I have to admit I was wrong about Andrew Garfield. As Parker.
    He’s actually a good choice however I’m still mighty upset that this is a reboot and of course that its presented in the evil 3d,,!

    • I wont be surprised if its called:

      Spiderman 3D :O

    • I saw avatar in 3-d, and green hornet. 3-d sucks. Saw HP-7 at IMAX and that wasn’t too bad, but 3-d sucks.

      • HP7 wasnt on 3D.

  17. htf can they make a spiderman movie without JJ, it doesn’t make sense, unless they bring him in towards the end of the movie when peter gets serious with his photography ;)

  18. LOL! Looks like a crazy man in tights running down the street like a goof ball.

  19. If they wanted to be honest in the synopsis for this film it should read

    “What if instead of being bit by a vampire Edward from Twilight was bit by a radioactive spider? “

  20. Who or What is that in the picture lookin like they’re jumpin to the ground from mid-air?

  21. The suit looks far too bright, the picture they released looks totally different.
    And why could they not just bring back JK Simmons??????????????

  22. cant really see much from that pic

  23. It’s like a picture of Bigfoot, except more colorful.
