The Amazing Spider-Man

While the first official teaser poster for The Amazing Spider-Man looks a little bit dark for Marc Webb's franchise reboot starring Andrew Garfield as your favorite neighborhood wallcrawler, the footage at Comic-Con didn't necessarily imply a series darker than Sam Raimi's take, but rather a more grounded approach with a lingering focus on the characters' relationships. However, these new promotional banners that Comic Book Movie has discovered make it look along the same lines of Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man. Apparently these are meant to promote the film internationally, hence the flashiness. See them all below!

Here are the three colorful banners which showed up at Comic Book Movie (click for larger versions):

The Amazing Spider-Man - International Banner 1

The Amazing Spider-Man - International Banner 2

The Amazing Spider-Man - International Banner 3

Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man stars Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker, our hero Spider-Man, as well as Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Rhys Ifans as Dr. Connors, Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben Parker, Sally Field as Aunt May and Denis Leary as George Stacy. 500 Days of Summer director Marc Webb is directing this new reboot of Spider-Man, from a screenplay co-written by Alvin Sargent (Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2 & 3), Steve Kloves (Harry Potter movies) and James Vanderbilt (The Rundown, Zodiac, The Losers) in various iterations. Sony Pictures will be bringing The Amazing Spider-Man to theaters next summer, on July 3rd, 2012 next summer. You can still watch the first official teaser trailer that debuted earlier in July right here.

    That costume doesn't woooooooooork. "My god... sam raimi nailed the costume... we have to change it just to change it.. we give him some shoes to wear"
    • Awtan90
      Exactly what I was thinking
    • Lagoya
      I completely agree
    • fancypants
      Finally, someone else who agrees with me. And he needs to be a little more ripped.
  • Neuromancer
    I think these posters are horrible. Especially the last one looks so amateuristic, with the default outer glow Photoshop effect as well... In fact, I can't believe they're legit.
    • WMDimes
      "amateuristic."
  • Ian
    Really? Reminds me of the silent spiderman from the electric company.
    • CrusaderG
      ha! i loved the electric company spiderman! although im sure its not as good as what i remembered. :-(
    • Sethamus
      For some repressed memory or the other, the silent Spidey from TEC used to scare the holy tar outta me.  Concerning the new banners -(keep in mind, I'm not totally against a Spider-man revamp), but does his head look like a Spalding basketball to anyone else?

      Spider-Man!  Where are you comin' from Spider-Man!  Nobody knows who you aaaaaaaaare!
  • Josh Taylor
    HAHAHAHAHA, I love how they obscure the ridiculously designed Spider-Slippers. It's as if they are making a point about how shitty their design for the suit is by not showing the feet. Good work!
  • Ron
    These look so bad that they seem fake....
  • Lebowski
    So is this the costume that Spidey wears to raves or what?
  • http://twitter.com/A5J4DX A5J4DX
    i love it xD
  • YomanDenver
    Why does Spidey have yellow eyes? Does he have jaundice?
  • Big Boss
    There's nothing "amazing" about this.
  • happy camper
    where are his spidey under-roos? these are really bad.
  • Davidbryan
    looks more like Spider-man 2099.
    • Anonymous
      And what's wrong with that?  I loved that series! 8-) (Plus, Spidey 2099 was a cool playable character in the SM video game SHATTERED DIMENSIONS.)

    Oh Gawd... NO... NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You repeated "next summer" near the end of the post, in case you want to fix it.
  • Dkurysz137
    Really hating the yellowish tinted lenses.
  • Richie G
    looks like a great video game,but I thought you just did movie news on this site. Awh burn, yeah these are rubbish
  • http://profiles.google.com/snears Nick Sears
    Feels like there should be a "NOW WITH MICRO FIBER MATERIAL!" or some weird 'additional feature' cause this feels more like a detergent ad than a promo banner. 
  • Boss Jones
    Maybe these are the types of poster/banners international fans like to see.  The article says they're for promotion internationally.
  • http://twitter.com/PyroDark Kevin M Scanlan
    Lol These posters kind of look like kid's party supplies. Did "Voit" make his costume? he looks like a kickball and why does he have gold lenses? The first movie's costume was fine.
    • Xerxexx
      If they copied the Raimi uniform people would complain...much like they are now.
  • Xerxexx
    Meh to the posters. I happen to like the costume...it looks like something an actual teenager would design.
    • Anonymous
      The posters are...well, not too much of an eye-catcher for me as well, Xerxexx.  Then again, my eyesight sucks anyway (and I'm a freelance artist!). Surprised no one's complained about the lack of "webs" under the arms, which was part of the original costume in the early issues of the comics.... I don't have a problem with the costume either.  It's Spider-Man, and I'm interested in seeing the film.  And if people want to bemoan the fact that this is a reboot, all I can say is, "Remember all the caterwauling about SPIDER-MAN 3?"
  • Blue Silver
    All the complaining in the world will NOT stop any of us from seeing this movie!!
    • Anonymous
      Agreed.

    I don't know if I'm getting older or something but for some reason I just don't care if another Spiderman movie is coming out. If they are to remake something why not do Terminator or Star Wars. Not something that is still fresh (with disappointment) in my mind. Ok the first Spiderman was good. The second was Ok. But bythe time I saw the third I was done. Just sayin...

      "If they are to remake something why not do Terminator or Star Wars." Hmm....because no one wants to start World War III?
  • Frank
    To early after the previous series to reboot it ...
    • Anonymous
      Hmmm....I dunno, Frank.  This new SM film isn't the first time a series has been rebooted only a few years after its previous incarnation.  The Japanese animated series FULL METAL ALCHEMIST is an example--the original series was very popular, but then it was rebooted a couple of years later (perhaps only three or four) with a new series that was closer to the original FMA comic. I'm not ready to dismiss this; I am going to check it out in the theater when it comes out.  People have pulled out the long knives for this, which is understandable, but...remember the mauling that the third Raimi film got?  I remember friends back then saying that it would be better to reboot the whole SM film series. We'll see how it turns out next year.  Could be good, could be bad...only way to find out is to see it.

    The Amazing "Basketball-Man"!!!!
    • rennmaxbeta
      Sony is hoping this movie is a slam dunk.
  • Davidbryan
    I wanna see a scene on how he actually made that costume, what material he used to make it, cause how can a teenager make that
  • Davidbryan
    y u hav to get so mad at me??? scopedog
  • Davidbryan
    but if anything needs a reboot its the Fantastic Four
  • http://twitter.com/jinchoung jin choung
    actually, i love the new costume.  it looks a lot like the kind of design flourishes that are on modern body suits (swimming) so it makes it more in line with real world trends instead of parker being a graphic designer creating something from scratch.
  • FrankSpider
    I think the new costume looks really cool. The gold eyes do bug me but I can get over it, they look better in other pictures I've seen. And I don't think there's any point in analysing these banners, they're obviously intended for the kiddy demographic.
