New Amazing Spider-Man Pics
Andrew Garfield in his spidey finery

With Sony's Spidey crew packing their spideywear and toothbrushes for Comic-Con next week, Entertainment Weekly has a fresh look at Andrew Garfield suited up as everyone's favourite wallhanger in The Amazing Spider-Man.

If you're lucky enough to be in San Diego and can squeeze into whichever rammed hall Garfield, director Marc Webb and co will be appearing in, you'll get a first proper glimpse at how the "more contemporary, grittier" Spidey reboot is shaping up. Or you could just stay home and gaze lovingly at the perfectly-coiffed Garfield looking all focused in the new issue of EW.

Click on the images for larger versions or head over to 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).

As Webb tells EW, it's a new take on Spidey's origin story: “Ultimately what this movie is about is a kid who grows up looking for his father and finds himself. And that’s a Spider-Man story we haven’t seen before.”

Look out for more on the movie in the next issue of Empire, onsale on July 28. The Amazing Spider-Man swings into your local multiplex next summer.

@whiteybhoy Sorry dude but you can't act all big and hard with your "don't throw accusations at me!" and then say you have a walk in wardrobe of comics. as you have the comics you'll agree with everything I've said about the movies... won't you More

Who are you calling a muppet? i beg to differ about none of us have read any of the comic books iv'e been reading spider-man comics since i was old enough to read and that was 27 years ago,i have a walk in wardrobe full of spidey and marvel comics and dating as far back as the week i was born in 1980,so don't start throwing your accusations at me .

RE: You are all Muppets!
@ J1084 No worries. Wow! do you have an original "Amazing Fantasy" # 15? I think a near mint copy is worth around $50,000. I've only got a couple of colour reprints and then the entire collection of ASM right up to the most recent issue # 663. Dan Slott has been on board for a while and writing some fantastic stories. In fact Peter Parker in his new job as a hi- tech designer / inventor at Horizon Labs just implemented a voice activation upgrade for his web shooters which is kind of cool. More

RE: You are all Muppets!
@magnetic eye. Very sorry my maths was wrong and its only 50 years. And thank you for the lesson on marvel artists through the decades. But speaking as someone who has amazing fantasy 15 and all volumes of the comics from then on to the mid 90's I kinda knew all that. The way I see it is this. It was a good few years until spidey left school in the comics and in that time he faced off against classic villains such as vulture, sandman, lizard, doc ock, electro, chameleon, the enforces and lo More

RE: You are all Muppets!
@ J1084 The very first appearance of Spiderman was in "Amazing Fantasy" #15 (August 1962), - 49 years ago, not 60 years. Issue # 1 of “Amazing Spiderman” was launched in (March 1963) - 48 years ago and was illustrated by Steve Ditko until issue # 38 (July 1966). Steve Ditko left after completing issue #38 (July 1966) and John Romita Sr. took over who eventually began to draw Peter as a more mature, slightly handsome and less geeky and nerdy adult. The modern Spidey has bee More

IT'S PHONY SONY AGAIN.......NOT MARVEL STUDIOS
I have been reading and collecting the "Amazing Spiderman" series by MARVEL COMICS since I was 10 years old in 1975 and I guess I'm still waiting for a true & faithful adaptation. I thought Sam Raimi's version was okay albeit a little too cartoony and far from authentic. :-) Spider-MAN fans have to put up with yet another franchise that depicts his teenage years. That is such a small window in Spider-MAN’S history and we’ve been there done that with Raimi’s version.

Not going to judge.
Emma stone looks awesome as Gwen (I never liked Mary Jane being Petes first love).On the down side Garfield looks to old for teenage pete as did Maguire.And as others have stated Spidey was a skinny kid for many years.My biggest problem is the same one I had with the Raimi films-How the hell did pete make that costume in his bedroom?And I prefer the organic webshooters,they just make more sense.

He's no Tobey Maguire is he?
Sorry, but the only way to distance themselves far away enough from Raimi's movies would be to shoot a remake of Driving Miss Daisy instead. As we all said when this reboot was announced, it's too soon and it will be compared with Raimi's stuff. OK, maybe it's for a different audience, but for those of us that loved Raimi 1 and 2, this is going to be guilty until proven innocent. I'm usually more positive and open-minded about stuff, and I'm certainly not a geek fanboy, but this looks P-poor. More

You are all Muppets!
I love the way you all have opinions like he's too skinny and won't be as good as Raimi's. Clearly none have you have read the comics and so are basing all you opinions on the suck-fest that was Raimi! Want proof... here goes: 1 Spidey was a sarcastic and funny superhero. He never shut up. He'd stand in front of kingpin and say stuff like "are you aware your belly button echo's" - But in raimis version spidey was a mute. You could count his line on one hand. 2 Spidey is a whimpy l More

Costume
The mask look's like Nicholas Hammond's from the late 70's tv series ,Im not really loving this new costume at all.From all the variations of the classic suit over the years in the comic books,they went with this bastardisation.I will reserve judgement till i've seen the movie though,it may turn out to be a great film,though i wont hold my breath.

RE: Cover
You're right, he does seem more like a Reed Richards, maybe they could of used him as pre-F4 Reed in Avengers...   As for the cosutme, looks ok but I prefer the old 'classic' costume used in the previous films. Jenniwalter, I agree, a quick pre (and during credits) sequence of him getting his powers would of been better. Do the opening scene as Peter getting bitten and starting to transform and then use the credits as a training montage, then pick it up a few months later when he's b More

RE:
Chances are I'll be visually insulted when this comes out, but I'll stick with it and see it in 3D and everything. After all, it's the only live-action Spiderman film we're getting in the next few years. But my opinion still stands that Garfield is too hip and cool looking to play a nerd, the suit looks bloody terrible and Gwen Stacy is no where near as cool/hot as Mary Jane. More

RE: Rebout....YYAAWWNN!
Not disagreeing with you, I just have to ask... You do know that The Dark Knight isn't the first part of Nolan's Batman re-boot, right? Because Batman Begins is just what you described: a whole movie about Batman's origins. Not even Nolan skipped the origin story, it's just that he was the first one to put it to film. Just sayin'.

RE: Another Origin Story...REALLY!!!
L: Vtepes2 Andrew Garfield looks like a skinny, pencil thin geek on the cover of EW...not the AMAZING SPIDERMAN...has anyone of these money greedy movie makers even looked at comic. get what you are saying but in the comics he IS a skinny, pencil thin geek and is often drawn that way, since Spider-man often uses agility and smarts to defeat his enemies. The problem is that the new costume is designed to accentuate the Garfield's skinny build, which is just unnecessary. More
