A New Poster for 'The Amazing Spider-Man' Feels a Little Bit Familiar
For Sam Raimi's trilogy of Spider-Man films, the poster campaigns always seemed to feature New York City at the magic hour with Spidey swinging through the sky, sometimes with Mary Jane in his arms. Now we get a taste of that again, but with the orange hues traded for blue, and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy taking the place of Kirsten Dunst alongside a masked Andrew Garfield as The Amazing Spider-Man, in the franchise reboot from director Marc Webb. Aside from the batch of international character posters, Stone hasn't appeared on any theatrical posters, so that's new. Will we get one with Spidey and The Lizard next?
Here's the new poster for Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man from the film's Twitter page:
Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) finds a clue that might help him understand why his parents disappeared when he was young. His path puts him on a collision course with Dr. Connors, his father's former partner.
Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man features Garfield as Peter Parker, Emma Stone as Gwen, Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben, Sally Field as Aunt May and Denis Leary as George Stacy. 500 Days of Summer director Marc Webb is at the helm of this Spider-Man reboot, from a screenplay written by Alvin Sargent (Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2 & 3), Steve Kloves (Harry Potter movies) and James Vanderbilt (The Rundown, Zodiac, The Losers). Sony/Columbia is bringing The Amazing Spider-Man to theaters in 3D on July 3rd this summer.

It's a scene from the movie, they just copied it and paste it into this poster. Looks good, I guess... New posters in recent movies have shown to be weak, The Avengers, Transformers: Dark of The Moon, the last few Harry Potter movies (well, except for the one where Hogwarts is burning) among others. I think they should stay with the black one showing the just the Spider.

Am I the only one who likes the spidey outfit in Sam Raimi's spider-man movies instead of this new one?
Akwasi Asabere Jr. on Jun 14, 2012
I agree with you. Sam Raimi's Spidey outfit is much better indeed.

I like this costume and I really like the fact that the web around the costume is less pronounced without that silver color. The suit fits Andrew like a glove and his body shape in the costume definitely resembles the web-slinging figure in the comics. The Raimi version looked too pretty making it look like the costume was covered in barbwires and Tobey looked really awkward in the costume looking uncomfortable with that weird body shape. To me Raimi's costume I would wear to a parade and Web's costume I'd actually wear to go fight some crime in.

A mash-up of the two would be perfect.

It's so obvious what they're trying to sell here and who they're selling it to.
