First official studio shot of Andrew Garfield in his Spider-Man outfit!

Published at: Jan. 13, 2011, 2:13 p.m. CST by quint

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. This was a massive surprise for me today. Geek out time! Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man! Click for the massive version!

 

 

 

I love Garfield in the suit. I love that this isn't bulked up Spider-Man. I'm not sure how hot I am on the flame-like tapering off of the gloves, but we'll see how it works in the big picture.

What I have no problem with, though, is the Spider emblem on the chest. It's all in how he moves in it, but I'm digging this first look at the new suit.

Thoughts?

    by Brent1138

    Looks Good...

    by BojTrek

    It looks pretty good to me... I liked Spiderman I-III, each has parts I enjoy. I do not own them, but will normally keep them on when on cable. I will see this when it comes out... the kid looks good in the suit, a skinny/lanky Spiderman.

    . . . better than the Captain America costume.

    Being indifferent.

    by RedEgiraahgnal

    I'm seriously against this reboot, but this picture neither made me change my opinion, nor made me angry and hate the idea of it more. I kinda like that suit, but also don't like it at the same time. So all in all: No reaction from me, not positive, not negative.

  • Jan. 13, 2011, 2:19 p.m. CST

    Web - Gold Wrist

    by BojTrek

    Do you see the gold wrist accessory for his web shot? Is it a chemical that he created? Or is it spder thread from his body? I like that Spiderman in the other movies has his web made by his own body... like a real spider. I do not know the comics, does he still create/make the spider web in a lab or does his body generate the web fluid?

  • Jan. 13, 2011, 2:20 p.m. CST

    How's it shit?

    by TommyGavinsEgo

    When it's pretty much the same as the Maguire suit? ... Still baffled as to why they need to reboot - they could've just recast and skimmed over the origin in an animated credits sequence (The Incredible Hulk did a good job of glossing over Ang Lee's misfire) . Interested to see it though. Modestly (compared to the bloat of Spidey 3) budgeted can well mean better. Andrew Garfield is a superb actor and has been since "Boy A". Plus, you've got Martin Sheen, Denis Leary, whoever else - a solid cast. With Rhys Ifans, who is ever so slightly barking mad, as the villain. Cautiously optimistic.

    Did theyr eally HAVE to change it from the comic?

    by IndustryKiller!

    I know they already have three films and they want to differentiate the reboot, but Im sure we all could have handled the classic design again.

  • Jan. 13, 2011, 2:21 p.m. CST

    awesome!!!

    by baronweazle

    Still not sure how I feel about this reboot, so soon after sam raimi's films. But I will check it out. Especially since I saw 3 films starring Andrew Garfield the past week(Boy a, Never Let Me Go and the red riding trilogy) and he was fantastic in all of them! Then again Tobey Maguire was a very good promising actor before Spider-man(Wonder Boys, the Ice Storm etc.) and what good films has he done since he became Spider-man? Let's hope the same fate won't befall Andrew Garfield.

  • Jan. 13, 2011, 2:21 p.m. CST

    WEB SHOOTERS!!??

    by HelmetBoy

    You can just see a glint of something metal on the wrist. I hope it's web shooters. I hope they have Rhino in one of these movies, and shocker, and finally do justice to Eddie Brock and Venom.

  • Jan. 13, 2011, 2:25 p.m. CST

    Looks more home made....

    by drewlicious

    At least from what I can tell. To be honest Andrew Garfield looks more like how I envisioned Peter Parker to be than Tobey Maguire. Boyish, kind of lanky. I'm a little worried about all the big names, though. There are so many I'm worried it might turn out to be very distracting.

  • Jan. 13, 2011, 2:25 p.m. CST

    Doesn't really look like the Ditko era suit

    by SithMenace

    But I like it. I think this could turn out to be a really great movie, up there with the Batman reboot.

  • Jan. 13, 2011, 2:25 p.m. CST

    Not very "webby"

    by Jaster

    Overall I think the suit looks great and I agree Spider-Man should be lithe, not bulky. But the checkerboard pattern as opposed to the web pattern of every Spider-Man suit ever designed is an odd choice.

  • Jan. 13, 2011, 2:25 p.m. CST

    Hmmm.....cause for concern, I think

    by thot

    Granted, it is hard to tell just how the suit looks from this photo, but it's obvious it's quite a change from the classic look and the first 3 films. I'm all for changing it up a bit, but the Spidey chest symbol looks really odd, almost too stylized. Something a high school boy in 2011 come up with? Not likely. Will have to reserve judgement til better, clearer pics are made available. I'm still cautiously optimistic.

  • Jan. 13, 2011, 2:27 p.m. CST

    Not too shabby.

    by Lemure_v2

    Never did explain in Raimi's films how Parker made that costume - especially if you watch the making-of and see how difficult it actually was. I'm intrigued about this.

    by xCaptainAmazing

    I'm not sure what my initial reaction to this is. It certainly looks more feasible to create compared to the old one. I think the mask does it all, though.

  • Jan. 13, 2011, 2:31 p.m. CST

    Looks Like Ultimate Spidey to me.

    by ckone

    I like the mood, the feel, the texture in it. I have same reservations about the gloves, but overall, it looks and feels like Ultimate Spidey. Like a Bagley drawing come to life. Looks WAY better then Green lantern and his painty face.

  • Jan. 13, 2011, 2:33 p.m. CST

    Definitely web shooters

    by damned-dirty-ape

    Look at the enlarged image, what else could they be. I don't mind that they are making another Spider-Man film, what bothers me is the possibility of another origin story. Thats the last thing i want. I think it would have made more sense just to continue with the new crew.

  • Jan. 13, 2011, 2:35 p.m. CST

    Clearly he's just been through a tough fight.

    by knowthyself

    So it's not fair to judge the suit seeing as he just got the holy hell kicked out of him. Looks great though. More scaled down and less "hollywood" than Raimi's costume. Has a Nolanesque real world feel to it, similar to Batmans suit in Dark Knight.

    by ckone

    Lets hope they keep it short and simple, since everyone and their Grandmother know the story, keep it down to a few minutes of screen time, and then jump into some cool fun Spidey action.

  • Jan. 13, 2011, 2:37 p.m. CST

    OK...., after embiggen-ing the photo

    by thot

    Like I should have in the first place,...gives one a much better look at the detail in the suit/symbol. Though it does seem a bit busy stylistically, the chest symbol looks better than I thought. The suit is damaged a bit and obscures some of the detail. Overall, pretty cool. Though the mask will make it or break it. A distinctly different design while keeping the basic Spiderman look. Do I see mechanical wrist-shooters? Interesting.....

  • Jan. 13, 2011, 2:38 p.m. CST

    Looks like a 13 year old with a Halloween Barn costume

    by shutupfanboy

    That spider insignia has back legs all the way down to the boy's junk. That'd have to be distracting. "Hey, Green Goblin. My eyes are up here." Not as bad as Nolan's Bat-suits, though. Not nearly as bad. And you all love those, so what can you possibly have to complain about here?

    Which is cool. I'm still not sold 100% on this reboot though. We'll see how this goes. On a side note: I'm just as much of a geek as the rest of you... maybe more, but I truly can't believe people are nitpicking little things like the "flames" on the arms. Give me a break. Like they haven't changed the Spidey suit here and there in the comics and cartoons throughout the years. I don't see why it's a problem if they tweak it a bit for the big screen.

    by MattmanReturns

    The first batsuit was a typically goofy, rubbery mold batsuit in line with Burton's. The second looked practical and badass. It's easily the best live action hero costume I've seen. Batman has no superpowers, so it makes sense he wouldn't be running around in spandex if you want to achieve any degree of realism. He'd be wearing fucking armor. Yes, I know Dark Knight is completely realistic, but it is easier to maintain suspension of disbelief in that film than any other comic book movie.

    by Kremzeek

    There are just too many reboots lately. I'm not saying they won't do a good job with this (maybe they will, maybe they won't), but I'm having a really difficult time getting pumped about this because it feels like they just gave up instead of trying to build off the last film. Granted, we all know Spidey 3 was a let down, but it wasn't enough to warrant rebooting the whole franchise IMO. They could've gone on and 3 would've just had to be the film in the series that was a weaker than the others. Kinda like Jedi is to the OT. Not bad - has some truly AWESOME segments too - but not quite up to par as its predecessors. Instead they go... Aw, the hell with it. Let's start over and pretend that all never happened. It's jarring and unnecessary... and kinda cowardly, really. But here it is. So, I'm gonna give it a chance. I'm just not excited - and as a nerdy film lover, I *should* be. That's pretty sad to me. *writefortheedit: I see what you're saying, but if you look back thru the years, there are older Spidey pics from comics and what not that use that exact pose. So, I really don't think it falls under Emo. This type of Spidey pose has been around quite a while.

"Protection. And ease of movement." "Ease of movement?" "Well. OK. Not so much ease of movement. Protection mostly." "How long does it take to put that on?" "Not long, really. Couple hours.

    by Royston Lodge

    Regardless of any of the faults of Raimi's trilogy, I really liked how Spidey looked in those movies. I liked the way that wimpy little Tobey Macguire bulked up for the role. It really hit home the idea that the spider bite radically altered his entire body rather than simply giving him a couple of superpowers. This Andrew Garfield photos tells me that they're trying to go for the 14-year-old-girl demographic rather than going for comic book fans. Garfield has that skinny, unthreatening, "what a good boy" look that the Twilight crowd loves so much.

    He can move his joints. He can turn is head. He can take a fall and survive thanks to extra padding. He looks bullet proof. His cape seems more fluid. I'm not sure what you wanted him to look like? Did you actually want the spandex? A power-less hero with spandex? He'd be dead in an hour.

    by Subtitles_Off

    You're the one who claims a costume that looks like it is made from eighteen molded plastic pieces and weighs seventy pounds is the most practical thing you've ever seen and most believable as superhero wear. Meanwhile, every professional who makes a living off of athleticism in the real world wears Under Armour, so they can move. Yeah, you're a bulb. You're the fukken sun.

    by allykatD

    I guess even spiderman needs an action bag. Meh. I think the costume looks alright, it doesn't look bad or horribly stupid/lame. I see the web shooters there on the gloves. And I suppose the kid looks Peter Parkish enough. Kinda skinny, kinda geeky. Really thought, it's difficult to get excited seeing that Spiderman 3 came out in 2007 so it's not like this is anything new that needs an update.

    I totally get that this is faithful to the character in the comics. But the image screams - to me - exactly what the studio's whole marketing angle was when they "envisioned" this reboot. Nothing to do with a faithful representation of the character, everything to do with appealing to a market segment. And that makes me want to puke.

    Skinnyness

    by Flummage

    If there's one superhero that benefits from a slight non-bulky physiology it's our Spidey. One of my favourite things about the character is the way his youth as Peter Parker melds into his visual depiction as something, when suited up, that is almost more animal than cartoonishly superhuman. Youthful gawkiness transforms into the slender, angular and brilliantly visual Spider-Man of shadows and webbing and New York cornice stones and alleyways and gravity-seducing Escher aeronautics. A significant upgrade to the Raimi team's serviceable but somewhat bland and over-designed plastic toy incarnation, for moi. Intrigued, is I, I can't deny it.

    by TheJudger

    But Peter Parker... OK I hate that I'm bitching I honestly do, but shouldn't his suit look home made. This thing looks like it was designed in a computer printed our in resin on a Rapid Prototype machine and silicone molded and cast in urethane. Peter Parker is always having money issues, that's why he works as a photographer to make ends meet. This suit is too fancy it sure as hell doesn't look home made or like something Peter could pull together. If he was in college and that college had a design shop with those machines and he snuck in and printed out the plates for the molds over the course of a weekend. Then I'd have no issue with this suit. Maybe he surfed the net to find resources on sculpting, 3d cgi modeling and casting in silicones and urethane's. If he had free access to an rp machine, that would cut down the cost but the suit looks like the urethane or silicone material alone would be several thousands of dollars, nevermind R&D. Sorry to bitch honestly. Parker is the poor mans hero he wears a homemade outfit. This does not look homemade at all.

    Reboot: Big Mistake

    by blue meanie

    First off, despite Spiderman 3 sucking badly, overall, the Sam Raimi Spiderman was a great accomplishment, with the first two Spidey movies being some of the BEST comic book movies ever made. AICN Haters may spit bile about Tobey MacGuire, but he made an EXCELLENT Peter Parker, and the rest of the cast was picture perfect, especially with Aunt May and J Jonah Jameson! Second, I truly feel it's a major mistake for this reboot to happen; sure Raimi screwed up on the third round, but you can lay most of the blame on Avi Arad and the Marvel executives trying to shove as much crap as possible into a movie in order to generate $$$. I wish they would simply give Raimi another chance at bat, with the full freedom to direct the picture the way he wants it to be. Normally, bad superhero movies occasionally need a reboot (Ang Lee's Hulk, Joel Schumacher's Batman and Robin), but this time, it's totally uncalled for. They decide to reboot something that wasn't really broken in the first place. Finally, after watching the Social Network several times, I personally feel that Andrew Garfield is the WRONG choice for this role. His overall appearance is too ethnic for Peter Parker, who is your typical suburban WASP teenager. In SN, he played a Brazilian Jewish college student, and that's what he looks and acts like. Sorry no Peter Parker. One photo isn't going to change my mind.

    I mean, seriously, when are we going to move past this annoying "just make the costume darker and give it scales" trend? Yup, most superhero costumes are kind of dumb and look even sillier when you wear them in real life. But so fucking what? That's part of the fun. And even then, if you're going to change a costume, change it. Don't just give it a few thoughtless tweaks for the sake of "making it your own." This looks like something out of a fan film. That's why I love the look of "Thor" and the Iron Man and War Machine costumes. They didn't fix what wasn't broken. Granted, they're easier to work with, but it's not like this is some unpaid intern's first costume gig. Fuck this.

    by steverogers5

    I'm perfectly happy having Andrew Garfield in the role. He's been pretty good in the film's I've seem him in, and seems like he might be a better fit for the part. I'm really just hoping this movie will forever banish all the horrible memories I have of that dim, slow witted, cowardly, simpleton version shown in Raimi's movies. Maybe we'll actually get a fast talking, wise cracking Spidey this time around. Wouldn't that be nice? Might actually feel like a proper potrayal of the character. Not sure about the changes to the costume, as I don't really think it needed the lines on the blue parts. Though I'm glad to see the 'white' web lines on the red parts are gone. That always bugged me for some reason..

And I'd like to see anybody but Toby McGuire play the part because: 1) He's a dick. 2) He demands too much face time on-screen. Spider-man should be wearing his mask when he's in-character.

    by angry_spacboy

    from this one. The only thing that saves these types of films from being by the numbers, effects ridden kiddie films, is a good director. This series had one, then fucked him off when his last one was shit, which btw was down to excessive studio involvement, and not him. His previous Spiderman (2) was one of the best superhero films made, and certainly the closest thing you will get to seeing a Spiderman comic on screen. He deserved more than being shit on by the studio like they did, but its their (and our) loss. RAIMI RULES!!!! My guess is that this new Spiderman will be a Twilight for superhero films. And if that sounds like a good thing to you, then you've wasted your time reading this post. You dick.

    not cheap enough if you ask me. Still looks like a quarter of a mil hollywood design rather than a broke kid. KICK ASS got that part right. But I like that they're getting away from Raimi's.

    by DonQuixote

    Doesn't inspire near as much confidence as the first great still shot revealing the Raimi-helmed Spidey, in my opinion...'cause that one...y'know...looked like Spider-Man. I'm a little out of touch w/current or recently-passed webhead doings in print, so...does this resemble that "Ultimate" look? Hm. Fun if they go with the artificial webshooters. Think I'd have preferred they went with the infamous black suit if they're planning to "Dark Knight" it all up. We shall see. My reaction is the classic "meh." Like the 1st Captain America pic, tho.

    I know! Kinda makes me sick, but then AICN wouldn't get interviews, or scoops, or photos if they don't play nice. I get it, its business. What bugs me is the total and complete disregard for Raimi's movies. No one seems interested in seeing what he would have done with Spidey 4. No one seems interested in seeing what a kick ass comeback he would have provided the movie going public. Instead we get a lame reboot. The days of comebacks are gone, along with my interest in Spidey.

    I never understood why people bemoaned that a kid couldn't make Raimi's costume by themselves - get on Google and you'll see plenty of people who have made quality replicas of it. The Webb costume looks more like it's been designed by a professional to me. Like shiny armour. Still wish this was a loose sequel. not a high school reboot Garfield's brilliant, but he's not 17. Maybe Peter is a dunce in this one and he's repeating senior year for the tenth time?

    "ethnic"?

    by mikefl

    I don't know how "ethnic" Andrew Garfield looks, or how Jewish, but I know he looks a lot like Spider-Man in the comics, who was modeled after Stan Lee's look at the time. Stan Lee is of course Jewish... as are Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Logan Lerman, and Anton Yelchin. So the character definitely leans that way look-wise. He's not blonde blue eyed captain America.

He was always a nerdy little runt and primarily has always been drawn as lithe and wiry, to allow for the spider-like poses he strikes so iconically. Garfield is a talented young actor and to me he skews much closer to the look, size, and shape of the definitive Spider-Man. Most everything that's been announced since we learned of this reboot has bolstered my confidence, and goddammit, I'm actually getting excited to see my favorite comic book character return to the screen.

    Just Piss On Steve Ditko's Classic Design

    by PITCHPERFECT

    I hate this departure from the original costume. I expected to see some modifications from the comic book and the three previous movies, but wow this really has strayed from the brilliantly realised design work of Ditko's original concept. I am very aware that movie costume designers tend to stamp their style all over something whenever they get the chance, but this is just an artists ego disrespecting a piece of art that has worked perfectly well for almost 50 years.

    this is a financial reboot

    by suicidesurgeon

    if sony had gone forward with sam raimi's spider-man 4, they would have had to give him and tobey maguire shares of the profit. also, they had agreed to a huge budget for the film (something like 200 million). with this reboot, they have hired marc webb for a fraction of the cost and the movie is being made for closer to a 10 million dollar budget. it will probably get just as many ticket sales as a 4th raimi film would have and possibly more, especially due to the 3d showings. on a side note, if the cinematography and set design is anywhere near as good as it was in 500 days of summer, im sure this film will at least "look" good.

  • Jan. 13, 2011, 7:04 p.m. CST

    Isn't this 'Peter Parker: The Motion Picture'?

    by Orbots Commander

    I read in a few different places that due to a lower budget on this new Spidey flick, it would center around the daily tribulations of Parker, largely fighting crime in street clothes, and maybe one scene, probably the finale, where he suits up as Spider-Man. Not loving or hating the reboot either way, but I'm sort of underwhelmed. They'd have to knock this one out of the park to get me to care.

    Looks promising

    by archer1949

    I was not crazy of the first two Spider-Man movies and thought the third one to be an utter piece of detritus. I'm all for a reboot. I hope those are webshooters on his wrists. The organic webshooters concept was idiotic. And for those of you complain about this guy being "too skinny", check out the original Ditko drawings of Spidey. He was SUPPOSED to be skinny. It wasn't until later did they bulk him up to more standard super-hero physique. My main concern is whether or not this Peter Parker is going the mouthy smartass, like in the comics. That's what annoyed me most about the Raimi movies. Maguire was far too dour. Spidey is a guy who NEVER SHUTS UP. He's always wisecracking, especially when fighting. It's his schtick and the movies just ignored it, which is not right. As far as I am concerned, the "Spectacular Spider-Man" cartoon remains the best Spidey adaptation, by far.

    It's okay.

    by Carl XVI Gustaf

    I wanna stay positive, I really look forward to this reboot. The Raimi-Man flicks never really captured "my" Spidey. But the original suit is my favorite super hero costume. It's kinda crazy if you think about it but it's perfect. Any changes to it, in comics of elsewhere, seems pointless. Still, I'm pretty sure this movie will bring Spidey back big time. Garfield was a good choice! Webb has all my confidence after giving us THAT cameo.

    by eveelcapitalist

    Bad. First, and most importantly, Garfiend just doesn't look the part. He doesn't look like a Peter Parker and he certainly doesn't look like Spider-Man. Was he supposed to have gotten his ass kicked in that shot? Cause judging by the look on his face there it looks like someone slapped his ice cream out of his hand and now Spider-Man is sad. Sad Spider-Man wants ice cream! Secondly, the costume. The design changes are baffling. The red parts on his upper body should all be connected. From his shoulders, down his arms to the gloves on his hands and also down his chest and back down to his waist and circling around. His boots are seperate. It's supposed to indicate that his costume is seperate, homemade pieces. Short, pants, boots, gloves, facemask. Unlike, say, the X-Men or Fantastic Four which is all high tech material stitched together with some kinda sci-fi fabric. This had that one piece professional hero look. Yeah, the flaming gloves are cool I guess? Cause they make you think of those arachnid species that spontaneously burst into flame? HAH! And replacing the silvery wire mesh was just a bad idea. When they debuted Maguire's Spider-Man costume and you saw the wire mesh, it looked sleek, fresh and something that would look great on film. This looks cheap and made-for-TV. It's low budget. It's like Sony said, "Okay, we're gonna make this movie but we don't want to spend a whole lot of money. Cut back where you can." And the first thing they cut was costume and make-up. Garfield's hair? Hey, Garfield, your "signature style" there really needs to go. It not only looks ridiculous, it clashes with the character. Oh, wait, you can't. The moment you cut your hair people will forget what you look like. And it's being directed by some dude who's done nothing but shitty little rom-coms. Key to success, baby! My theory that Sony is trying to poison the franchise before handing it back to Disney is proving correct.

If this were a Spider Man TV series, I'd be more into it. Otherwise, I think this is Hollywood at its most ridiculous and will fail. It's time to sell your stock in a studio when its goal is to keep remaking and keep lowering the target age demographic on a franchise that just left the theaters 5 minutes ago. Seriously, when the most jaded, cynical group of movie buffs thinks this is a good idea, I start worrying... either I'm dead wrong about this film or you guys have lowered your standards to a god-awfully low level.

    I like the small flourishes here and there of new design compared to the first three movies. They have kept the classic look. I like there isn't all the fake muscle padding in this one, that was one of the things I did not like about the first three. I have to agree with those who have already mentioned it, I think Garfield's longer and lankier body looks more like the Spider-Man that I remember as a kid.

    Just kidding. I'm sure they won't detract from the overall look of the costume. As for the people complaining about Garfield being emo, did you watch Spider-Man 3? Actually did you watch the whole trilogy? Every other scene had Maguire pouting, sobbing or looking abysmal. ..and since people are discussing Garfield big head (it is big) hasn't Spider-Man always had a big head? Remember when Casper Van Dien was up for the role of Spider-Man in Cameron's version? That dudes got a huge head.

    by cgih8r

    One of my biggest pet peeves in Raimi's movies was his shittorrific looking CGI spiderman and every CGI scene in those movies. I'll give them a pass on Dr. Octopus because that actually worked but all the rest was crap like watching Roger Rabbit jumping around on screen defying the laws of physics as if he was in toon town. But don't get me wrong I'm very optimistic for this movie.

    by angry_spacboy

    with all the Carpenter remakes. Most of his early films are leaders in their genre, making a remake pointless and doomed to failure. Of all his films, the only one that i think would benefit a remake is They Live, and even that film has a good cult following. Slightly off topic.

    What's up with that god damn spider?

    by kevred

    I can hardly see the rest of the costume for that piece-of-crap spider design in the center of it. The Johnny Weir comparison made above is right on the money. Peter Parker's a non-hip science nerd, not some kind of sparkly fashion designer. Combined with those horrible gloves and tons of over-stylized ornamentation around the costume, it looks like garbage. The costume design also exaggerates Garfield's existing too-tall lankiness, which seems like a mistake. Slim is fine, but the design itself makes him look too tall. And did they dye his hair black? Hopefully not. Garfield already looks a dead ringer for classic Romita Spidey in the face. To emo-ize him and exaggerate his inappropriate height is to squander some great qualities he already had in place. Overall this reeks like crazy of Twilight-style humorless emo melodrama, which is totally wrong for the character. Hopefully it doesn't represent the true tone of the film. And on the big image, it sure as heck looks like web-shooter discs on both his wrists. Which would be kind of a pathetic gesture after so over-stylizing the rest of the costume. Sincerely hope this film turns out to be great. But that doesn't make me like this image.

    MAKE HIM FUNNY THIS TIME

    by CHRISTIAN_BALE_TRASHED_MY_LIGHTS

    It's the one thing that really pissed me off about the Raimi movies. I used to read Spidey as a kid and loved his witty banter when he was fighting the bad guys. He better make some jokes in this or I'm going to be pissed off.

  • Jan. 13, 2011, 10:52 p.m. CST

    cgih8r, I agree with you.

    by kevred

    There were a lot of things I liked about Raimi's films, but the CG leaping and swinging bored me throughout. There's no gravity, no drama, no suspense in a CG figure flopping around. True in the SW prequels, true in LOTR, true in Spidey. It would be tough to avoid CG figures altogether in a Spidey film, but I hope they use it more minimally than Raimi did. Give us something that really puts us on the edge of the seat, not something that reminds us of the laughably bad dramatic sequences in video games (which, sorry to say gamers, are all shudderingly awful).

    by Nerd Rage

    If spider was trapped in a human body what would it do for webbing. That's right, it would be forced to turn to science and chemistry and invent them. Mechs are far more inspired and metaphorical than plain and boring organics which is just another predictable, freak mutation. Boy gets bit by spider, boy gets spider parts. Whooptey dooo! A toddler could've came up with organics.

  • Jan. 13, 2011, 11:06 p.m. CST

    kevred thankyou!

    by cgih8r

    I mean sure they'll need CG for some scenes but at least do a decent job and respect the law of gravity! The physics of CGI characters have been so completely off for over a decade, it takes you out of it. Before anyone jumps on me and points out all the movies I'm forgetting that did a good job like District 9 (fantastic), I'm just talking about most of them. Did you see that recent trailer for Priest? God awful CGI.

    nerd rage

    by Keats

    A toddler could have come up with organic web shooters because they make obvious sense. Both mechanical and organic shooters are impossible, but since Peter has already acquired numerous other impossible powers from the spider bite, it is a lot simpler just to say that he also got the web shooting ability, rather than having a second impossible event occur, namely his invention of the mechanical web shooters. It’s occam’s razor.

  • Jan. 13, 2011, 11:44 p.m. CST

    i like organics

    by Norman Colson

    a whole bunch of times the mechanical web shooters was great but they was used TOO often as a plot device, oh no im out of fluid and im falling, or i need to reload before the bad guy gets me. it became too predictable. I remember when peter got the organic web shooters in the comics, he became a whole lot more better, because there was no need for a reload. And they better come up with a good explanation of how he figured out the scientific formula to replicate and enhance spider webbing? They always said the spider gave him the information? How through genetic memory?

    tvs-frank re: web shooters

    by kevred

    tvs-frank (great handle, btw), everything you say about the web shooters is sound. One rationale for the mechanical web shooters is that it's an expression of Parker's scientific genius. It's his interest in science that put him in the position to be bitten in the first place and it's also deeply connected to his social standing & awkwardness. So by removing the mechanical shooters, you essentially remove all his super-powered state's connection to his personality. Thus, when he's acting as Spider-Man, there's no trace of Parker left. The mechanical shooters did make for an occasionally tiring plot device in the old comics, but I liked that a big part of Spidey's hero persona relied on his intellect and non-super-powered abilities. Which, as with anyone, is fallible, and that nicely paralleled his ordinary life, where his smarts and talent couldn't keep his personal life on an even keel. Your take on organic shooters makes more logical sense, but through the lens of the suspended-disbelief dramatic narrative, having Parker complement his natural powers with scientific ones is a very tidy package.

    Simple and obvious is a step backwards.

    by Nerd Rage

    Organics add nothing to the Spider-man character except simplicity. Mechs on the other hand give the character range and sophistication. Parker isn't just a bite victim who grows spider organs. He is what a spider would be in a human society. He's a genius inventor and chemist who creates a device to trap bad guys. There's an actual parallel drawn between nature's ingenuity and human technology. Also Parker's genius is displayed everytime he shoots his webs. Clearly he couldn't be the same superhero if we were not a brainy nerd. Anybody could've became Spider-man with organics. What's the point of Parker being a super-smart nerd if they don't relate to him being Spider-man? Why omit one of the coolest gadgets in comic book history and and give Spider-man uninspired, predictable powers all for the sake of simplicity?

But yeah, Spider-Man just got his ass handed to him, give him a break. When you see this little bastard get back in the ring you'll be loving it.

Although, Michael Giacchino would be interesting... and the most inspired choice, and biggest stretch would be newcomer James Peterson. He did an absolutely AMAZING score for the small film "Red Canvas", which was seen by pretty much nobody. Anyone that loves film music and hasn't heard that score should most definitely check it out :-)

    by Kammich

    Enough of a departure to be unique, not too much of a departure to be frustrating. I'm pleased to see what appears to be webshooters, and the abstract look of the spider emblem is pretty cool. I'm completely against another origin story, but I'm excited to see fresh blood take over the franchise. I just hope this film has a better explanation for the immensely expensive looking suit... Raimi's Spider-man was like, "oh, look I'm drawing costume concepts with magic markers. I'm broke as hell, but HEY -- look at this amazingly crafted suit that I found in a trunk under my bed."

    Maguire's costume had the 'raised' webbing. This has the webbing cut into it. But it all depends on the mask. Still, I can't really be fucked with this movie at all.

    by Johnno

    There, I just solved all of your costume quandries... Think this costume is hard for a kid to put together? You wouldn't believe the lengths and fantastic stuff cosplayers in real life manage to pull off. I don't see anything so hard here. Money issues? You spidey 'fans' do remember he used his powers to wrestle and make money and shit putting a paper bag over his head? Also aside from being a science nerd, apparently the spider bite gave Peter an intuitive nowledge about webbing to make his web shooters much like his spidey sense. There's nothing wrong with this costume. You people will complain about anything. I'm liking this so far. I don't mind a reboot providing they do things right this time. Though unfortunately I was hoping for Gwen Stacy being one of those things.

    by DonQuixote

    Re the first reveal of Maguire as Spidey pic -- yes! It inspired (at least for me) immediate confidence in the movie & a lot of excitement about how well they were going to translate what "worked" from the comics to the screen. On the other hand, I also remember my first very negative reaction (back when I was but a much, much younger comics/movie junkie) to the Keaton-as-Batman picture (which I saw in Time magazine), and going on to be relatively entertained by the end results. So I will strive to cling to my own highfalutin' advice about reserving judgment until it's all up on screen. Garfield's a fine actor---and who knows, maybe this is the Spidey 1.0 suit (like Maguire's hilarious homemade wrestler costume) and there'll be a more traditional 2.0 version later in the story...I'll be plopping down my $ to see it anyway!

    by Chewtoy

    It looks every bit as expensive and manufactured as Maguire's costume to me, only with some questionable design choices (Seriously? On a guy this skinny, they do away with all horizontals and make everything trailing vertical lines fading towards his crotch? The webs form a gaping vagina on his chest? Gloves that look like they were lifted from the X-games?) I'm kind of curious as to what's supposed to be happening in this scene, what with him apparently at ground level in the city, no mask, backpack over his shoulder. Way to keep that secret identity buddy.

    by HarryKnowlesNonExistentInceptionReview

    ...at the paltry budget Webb has to work with, plus the studio's stipulation that he focus on the Twilight-esque teen romance angle, and the fact that Webb has zero experience directing action, there's not gonna be to many awesome web-spinning scenes in the thing anyway. Look for laughably bad CGI action resembling the aforementioned Twilight series. Maybe I'll watch a few minutes when it shows up on basic cable.

    Patton Was Right

    by musically_endowed

    Now that being a nerd is becoming the social norm, nerds are becoming bigger faggots than usual. Remember when they showed pictures of Tobey the first time? Everyone was in love. That`s because we weren`t used to getting high budget flicks of movies we constantly talked about with our friends, expressing anger with hollywood for not taking steps towards logical properties. We knew it couldn`t fail. Now in this day and age, when we are getting drowned in comic book movies, we only complain about costumes. Anyways I`m glad they`re starting over. Raimi, while totally in love with the subject matter, totally cast the role wrong. Tobey McGuire is a bitch. Dunst obviously sucks, but she got written as a dumb bitch. I think this is Fox`s bid to get Spidey in consideration for Avengers 2. So roll on Suedo Ultimate Spiderman! Sorry about the formatting, this site is hard to post on with my dumb phone. .

But I want to buy that a teenager made this suit-- and it would be nice for the over-all movie to be, you know, good. Also, 'double m'-- of course the lines are pointing to his crotch. This is the ultimate teen hero, a geeky loner who shoots semen out of his wrists. The original suit has a giant red arrow pointed at his junk. That's how he thinks.

    I for one have been 100% uninterested in this

    by southafricanguy

    film, which is odd as Im a big spidy fan. It just always felt way too soon for a "reboot". But I have to admit that the more and more im hearing and seeing about this in terms of the casting, and now this picture....im starting to get interested. This picture certainly seems to indcate a very different take on spidy...and frankly thank heavens. I like Raimi's first two films and I think they are both good, if unexceptional. They got a lot right, but a lot wrong too imho. Dunst was always a bad MJ, and Spidy never wise cracked. Personally Im happy about the mechanical web shooters simply because that alone will create a different feel to this. But I really think some people need to calm down and stop being childish. Does it matter wether organic or mech? Both have now become part of the Spidy lore, and really im fine with either. There are plenty of arguments that can be made for the use of either. The costume is interesting looking, I personally like how its darker, and is different to Raimi's films costumes. Imho it seems like this Spidy will be a darker, more "real world" take on Spidy ala Nolan's Batman films, as opposed to Raimi's films being more comparable to Burton's Batman films. The one thing I am very curious about is how the fuck they will pull this off on a supposed 80 million budget? Surely you simply cant do Spidy and the Lizard without having to use complex effects? Anyone got any ideas on how the hell this is supposed to work? Also, Marc Webb is a very interesting choice for this. Will be very interesting to see what an indie director will bring to something like a big superhero film.

    Like the costume

    by ninpobugei

    Grittier looking costume & skinnier kid makes me hope this is darker, like he's in real danger fighting the bad guys. PLEASE keep the bio-webshooters. Some kid gaining super powers AND coming up with gadgets worthy of Tony Stark or Reed Richards is just a bit much to believe (webshooters, spider tracking devices, etc. in the comics).</p> <p> I also like that the costume is darker with the black webbing lines and more scaling effects, which will make the costume seem creepier. One of the interesting things in the early comics was that people were kind of creeped out by Spiderman, so it kind of makes sense that the costume would take on a kid's more literal sense of a spider, even if it's not what mainstream America would want (i.e. a bright and inspirational costume like Superman wears).</p> <p> One odd choice is that the gloves don't appear to be gloves, but seem fully a part of the sleeves of the suit (not terribly practical, unless there's a split in the wrist).</p> <p> Overall, I give it a solid A.

    THIS is the best they could come up with for this wholly unnecessary reboot? I suppose this could be post-combat, which'd be why it looks so fucked up, and the lighting ain't so hot either, but still. The best thing we geeks could do for Spider-man is just not go see this oncoming travesty. If we can help crater this useless movie, Sony will abandon the franchise and it'll revert to Marvel/Disney control where it'll get better treatment and maybe even the Raimi/Maguire make-good that they were trying to do before the plug got pulled.

I have issue #14 from the mid sixties that introduced Goblin. It isn't close to mint because I read it to death. I loved all things Spiderman but never completely connected with "Spectacular Spiderman". Probably an age thing...

    All this bitching about superhero 'reboots'....

    by ClayG

    First of all, what the fuck is a 'reboot'? So sick of the use of this word, thrown around on the internet like the word 'random', with no consensus on what the fuck it means. Is it when the lead role of a major franchise is recast? If so, then are you whining morons too young to remember that between 1989 and 1997, the Batman film franchise was 'rebooted' three different times? What about James Bond? That series was being 'rebooted' long before Daniel Craig came along. And no one ever bitches about recasting Bond. How is the new Spider-Man film somehow the fastest 'reboot' in history? I swear, the only consistent rule of language on the Internet is 'we bitch about absolutely everything.'

  • Jan. 16, 2011, 10:01 a.m. CST

    clayg, how are you having a problem with the term...

    by DarkHawke

    ...reboot in this context? We're talking about a continuity of the character, not necessarily a lead actor. So Batman Forever and Batman & Robin WEREN'T reboots because they loosely followed onto Batman and Batman Returns despite having different lead actors and a different director. Batman Begins WAS a reboot, as it re-did the character's origin and cast an entirely different continuity for Batman vs. that originated in the Burton films. <P> By contrast, Superman Returns WASN'T a reboot as there was no reimagination of the origin or continuity, even though it did feature an entirely new cast & production and ignored the last two Reeve Superman films. <P> The Incredible Hulk was a reboot as it established a different set of actors, a new origin and continuity vs. that set forth in The Hulk. <P> Bond films haven't had much continuity between them, even though there's been only one production company behind all of them. So despite the moves from Connery to Lazenby to Moore to Dalton to Brosnan and now to Craig, the idea of a reboot didn't apply. You could say that each lead change was a reboot, but really, each film was just another James Bond adventure. Only rarely were previous adventures referenced in later films, with the recent exception of Quantum of Solace, which followed directly onto the events of Casino Royale. <P> Clearer now? <P> Oh, and if you think that no one bitches about Bond re-casts, you're either five years old or you haven't been paying attention.
