Empire's Spider-Man Cover Unveiled
Spidey unmasks for our epic 2012 preview

19 December 2011  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen

If you're one of those people who gets the heebie-jeebies at the first glimpse of an arachnid, Empire's new cover may not be for you. Everyone else, prepare to marvel at the cover star leading off the latest issue's improbably awesome 2012 preview. Who better to blaze a trail into the new year than The Amazing Spider-Man and Andrew Garfield's young Spidey? No-one, that's who.

Marc Webb's superhero reboot is just the tip of the issue's ginormous preview-shaped iceberg. We've also run the rule on The Avengers, The Hunger Games, Prometheus, The Dark Knight Rises, Skyfall, The Hobbit and Battleship. That last one is more Peter Berg than iceberg.

Yes, 2012 could be the biggest year for movies ever. Basically, if you've got Olympics tickets, sell 'em now: it's cinema for the gold.

Get hold of the February issue of Empire, onsale from December 20, for more. The Amazing Spider-Man, meanwhile, swings into cinemas on July 4.
