The Amazing Spider-Man

The Untold Story… is returning to theaters! Over at SuperHeroHype they've unveiled the first official teaser poster for Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man, starring Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker, seen on the poster. While we've seen at least one colorful teaser poster before from Comic-Con, as well as the teaser trailer, this is a much more simple, dark black teaser poster that uses shadows to define the imagery. I think it's pretty damn cool and a definite mix in style from what I'd expect, which is why I totally love everything that Marc Webb is doing with this. You'll definitely want to see the new poster in full, so check it out below!

Here's the new Amazing Spider-Man teaser poster. Click on this below to see it in high res over on SHH.

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.

      first impression: i thought it looked quite good. but the more i look at it, the more it looks like a sequel to The Last Exorcism: Spider Poltergeist.

    I think sony has their ear to the ground, they're gonne make TASM and its gonna be gritty beause Spideys their flagship Hero, I dunno about u guys but i Liked the new Punisher Warzone, it didn't hide anything. They could outdo the DTR if they're smart . plus sony is loaded with $ they could get any1 to jack up the move.

       its a kids movie - it won't be darker than the last ones.

    Got my doubts. Still feel that making this was a mistake.
  • Louise Baker
    When you have inept people calling the shots on a film you get a bad film like Green Lantern. Amazing Spider-Man is over wrought with inept people.

        You dare question Louise Baker?!?!
        • Xerxexx
          Yes...I dare!

    The story has been told a bunch of times now...

    Harsh comments. Amazing how many people have already seen the movie. I didn't think it came out until next year. Don't know how I missed it. Oh yeah, I did see the poster. Pretty damn good.

      Sorry, I guess I missed the law when it became heresy to be critical of films. BEST MOVIE EVAR! Why? Coz its got a cool poster, dude.
      • Xerxexx
        Well there are a lot of judgement comments around here that seem to imply that people have seen the film...
        • Anonymous
          Most I've read imply misgivings. That and the boldfaced lie on the generic poster.
          • Xerxexx
            The tag is too much, I agree. The villain is Lizard that much is true.

    'The untold story' You know, except for those few billion times its been told before...
  • Davidbryan
    WTH?! untold story.... thats dumb /:l
  • Cookie
    The untold story...if you forget the last three movies.
  • fucktard
    Does anyone here really know anything about the plot, rather than just assuming it's the same fucking story?
    • Xerxexx
      The villain is Lizard and he's with Gwen Stacy. Seems that some want to ignore and just blindly compare.
  • It will be great then.

    If they give us a dark, gritty Spider-man suited to this generation's cynical youth I'm gonna be so pissed off. Spidey's not a dark, serious character, he's fun and lighthearted and I'm gonna scissor-kick Marc Webb's hipster face in that's not what I get.
    • gueuledebois
      Except there's a difference between spider-man being a light hearted, wise cracking character and peter parker being the dark, more serious character. Seems like you can't tell the difference. Btw, Raimi's portrayal of parker and spider-man was anything buy lighthearted or fun most of the time, mostly crying and being sad all day over MJ, Aunt May or Harry.

        I get what you're saying, but I think the light heartedness of Toby's parker came out in some of the humorous moments surrounding him (over-the-top fight with bone saw, the realized joy of swinging from building-to-building, falling on his face, playing with his powers, etc...).  That's kinda what Raimi did well with Sp 1 & 2.  Not disputing your point, i just hope he doesnt turn out to be some corny, emo, half-hearted attempt at Nolan's style.    
  • ... "The untold story" xD that tagline just made my day. Not interested. I better go back to my Sam Raimi's Spider-Man DVDs....
  • Kinda of cool/interesting they went with having him NOT dressed as spiderman. Makes it focus on the person as a character rather than spiderman as a superhero.
  • Xerxexx
    Not bad.
  • Alejo
    the untold story. only... its been told too many times. im pretty sure spider is in puberty hell; he has yet to get laid in any of these films. and now, he's back at square one all over again. no wonder he is more emo this time around.
  • havehope
    Well for those of us that did not watch the other three films or could not sit through them....for us, this IS the Untold Story of Spidey on the big screen
  • Jarno
    I stil don't get how the shoes stick to the walls? Microscopic spider hairs through the spiderman suit, (sort of plausible) but through shoes?!
  • ur_babys_daddy
    Im gonna need some more walls for posters
  • Sinistersix
    nice, I am really anticipating this movie to help bring respect back to spider man, my favorite super hero.  i think all involved will make it happen
  • rennmaxbeta
    "Untold" I guess if you've been living under a rock for the past 40 years, or just arrived from another planet. Are origin stories also safer for Hollywood than telling a new story with a well-known character? If so, it's a pretty sad situation for cinema to be in.
  • "I hope Spiderman is gritty" some say. "But Spiderman isn't gritty, Spiderman is light hearted" others say. "Nay" sayeth I, "Spiderman is a man trying to stay light hearted in a very dark and gritty world. Let it be dark and gritty like the dark knight, and then lets see Spiderman swinging in on a web, cracking wise."
