The Amazing Spider-Man Pictures Revealed

Entertainment Weekly has revealed the new look Spider-Man as portrayed by Andrew Garfield in the upcoming 2012 picture The Amazing Spider-Man.

The Amazing Spider-Man is a fresh reboot of the Marvel superhero franchise and is due for release four years after Spider-Man 3, starring (then Spider-Man) Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst. Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer) has said of The Amazing Spider-Man that this new view will be “more contemporary,” “more gritty,” and “more character-driven” look at the comic book hero.

EW spoke to Andrew Garfield, who recent success in films such as The Social Network and Never Let Me Go have seen this young star rise to the top very quickly. This new Spider-Man is the character that the 27-year-old Garfield remembered growing up; “I related to Peter Parker [Spidey’s alter ego] so much because I felt like someone else inside,” he says. “I loved the comic books and the animated TV series and I even dressed up as Spider-Man as a kid.”

Head over to the EW for their full gallery which includes first stills of Martin Sheen as ‘Uncle’ Ben Parker and Ryhs Ifans as Dr. Curt Conners (The Lizard).
