Check Out a Few Promotional Banners for 'The Amazing Spider-Man'

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"

Exactly what I was thinking

Finally, someone else who agrees with me. And he needs to be a little more ripped.

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.

Really? Reminds me of the silent spiderman from the electric company.

Ian on Dec 12, 2011


ha! i loved the electric company spiderman! although im sure its not as good as what i remembered. 🙁

CrusaderG on Dec 12, 2011


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?

Sethamus on Dec 12, 2011


Spider-Man!  Where are you comin' from Spider-Man!  Nobody knows who you aaaaaaaaare!

Edward Curtis on Dec 14, 2011


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!

Josh Taylor on Dec 12, 2011


These look so bad that they seem fake....

Ron on Dec 12, 2011


So is this the costume that Spidey wears to raves or what?

Lebowski on Dec 12, 2011


Why does Spidey have yellow eyes? Does he have jaundice?

YomanDenver on Dec 12, 2011


i love it xD

A5J4DX on Dec 12, 2011


There's nothing "amazing" about this.

Big Boss on Dec 12, 2011


where are his spidey under-roos? these are really bad.

happy camper on Dec 12, 2011


looks more like Spider-man 2099.

Davidbryan on Dec 12, 2011


And what's wrong with that?  I loved that series! 😎 (Plus, Spidey 2099 was a cool playable character in the SM video game SHATTERED DIMENSIONS.)

You repeated "next summer" near the end of the post, in case you want to fix it.

Really hating the yellowish tinted lenses.

Dkurysz137 on Dec 13, 2011


looks like a great video game,but I thought you just did movie news on this site. Awh burn, yeah these are rubbish

Richie G on Dec 13, 2011


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. 

Nick Sears on Dec 13, 2011


Maybe these are the types of poster/banners international fans like to see.  The article says they're for promotion internationally.

Boss Jones on Dec 13, 2011


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.

Kevin M Scanlan on Dec 13, 2011


If they copied the Raimi uniform people would complain...much like they are now.

Xerxexx on Dec 13, 2011


Meh to the posters. I happen to like the looks like something an actual teenager would design.

Xerxexx on Dec 13, 2011


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?"

All the complaining in the world will NOT stop any of us from seeing this movie!!

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...

Shawn Rhodriquez on Dec 13, 2011


"If they are to remake something why not do Terminator or Star Wars." Hmm....because no one wants to start World War III?

To early after the previous series to reboot it ...

Frank on Dec 13, 2011


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"!!!!

Thanos0519 on Dec 13, 2011


Sony is hoping this movie is a slam dunk.

rennmaxbeta on Dec 14, 2011


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 on Dec 15, 2011


y u hav to get so mad at me??? scopedog

Davidbryan on Dec 15, 2011


but if anything needs a reboot its the Fantastic Four

Davidbryan on Dec 15, 2011


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.

jin choung on Dec 19, 2011


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.
