Set photos for the Spider-Man reboot are a dime a dozen these days, especially after the official first image of Andrew Garfield as the titular web-slinger was released.
We’ve seen Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Garfield as Peter Parker and Spider-Man, and now we get to see him in some fairly action-packed scenarios, like – climbing! And swinging! And standing up on top of moving semi-trucks! Not to mention my personal favorite, sitting down and taking a breather!
Most of the set photos are pretty much what we’ve come to expect from the Spider-Man film franchise. Frankly, the best part about these photos is that we get to see Spider-Man’s new costume from every single possible angle. Seriously, I bet you could put all these shots together and create a shoddy (but functional!) 360 degree diagram of the costume. Any takers?
Before we get to the set photos, check out this video of Spider-Man web-slinging from a moving semi-truck (which seems to come from the same scene as this video). I’m pretty sure Spider-Man has swung from moving semi-trucks more times than he’s kissed any lady-friends:
Now, check out the copious set photos below:

Opinions on the new Spider-Man costume vary from love to loathing to everything in between. Some people are worried it’s too bright but, keep in mind, because the movie is being shot in 3D, the colors will be dampened onscreen. Also, some people are worried that the lenses are too red, something that will likely be touched up in post.
Personally, I’m a huge fan. The truth is, they could’ve kept the costume exactly the same as the previous films and I would've been completely content with it, but there’s nothing wrong with adding a little flourish here and there - to give the reboot costume its own personality. Regardless, they obviously didn’t massively screw up on it - and I can’t wait to see the suit officially in motion.
The so far unnamed Spider-Man reboot, directed by Marc Webb, hits theaters July 3rd, 2012.
