See Two Sleek New Theatrical Posters for 'The Amazing Spider-Man'
Though we've seen a couple trailers for the film (and that most recent Japanese trailer with a bunch more footage), the poster side of things for The Amazing Spider-Man has been relatively quiet. But with summer inching closer and the July 3rd release date on the horizon, it's time for everyone's favorite wallcrawler to get stuck up on some theater walls. Stark Industries (via The Film Stage) has tossed up the sleek new theatrical poster for Marc Webb's take on the classic superhero, and it's just bad ass. It reminds me of a video game cover, but that doesn't make it any less cool. Summer just can't get here soon enough!
Here's the theatrical poster for Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man, originally from Yahoo:
Update: Here's a second, alternate design also released by Yahoo. Now available in high res - click!
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.

Admittedly I don't know much about New York or the city's layout, but isn't the tall building in his reflection the same building behind him?

Pretty sure it's the Empire State Building in the reflection. The building behind him is the Chrysler building. Also, very slick poster.

Awesome posters! These are the opposite than those of Raimi's flicks. Director Marc Webb and Co. are bringing the darkness!!

The Jack Nicholson inside me says: Where does he get those wonderful threads?

I don't think these are far from what could have been realesed for a Raimi flick. Like part 3 for example.

Sony Spider and the Amazing Harlem Globetrotters! I was wrong before! The Douche Scale has tipped now! I'd like a MARVEL! Spider man movie.

Why did Spidey make his new costume out of basketballs?
John Griffin on Apr 16, 2012
That costume looks like some designer was trying way too hard.

Cool Posters but I have a question directed at whom ever may know the answer... I know this is a little off topic, and I'm aware the studios who own the rights to both franchises are separate companies... But what would be the chances of a partnership project for Avengers 2? , maybe bringing Spidey in for a cameo or longer... it could benefit both properties, Spidey was in the Avengers and I can't think of any reason why they wouldn't but maybe someone knows better? ..

I know Because of damn budget! Spidy making want big budget, spidy doesn't compare with hulk and ironman, from budget I mean. But I think in avengers 2 (if avengers 1 hit) we will be see spidy and that is avengers! I love spidy beside the hulk that crazy and soooooo cooooool

You make a kind of sense that doesn't!
Jimmy Love on Apr 18, 2012
no sense, the guy makes no sense... I'm grateful you replied Ehsan but I'm still lost, and don't agree with anything your saying at the same time.
David Carlin on Apr 21, 2012
It's like a non-sense sandwich!
