The Amazing Spider-Man
Columbia Pictures gave comic book fans a Valentine's Day gift by releasing a sneak peek of the Spider-Man reboot starring Andrew Garfield: a new photo of the star in the suit and the film's official title.
VIDEO: Andrew Garfield reacts to first Spider-Man photo
The image shows Garfield fully suited up -- mask and all -- as the nimble vigilante in his classic crouched pose. Devices on the inside of his wrist appear to be inorganic web shooters that Spidey alter ego Peter Parker invented — a topic sure to be discussed ad nauseum online.
It's the first photo officially released by Columbia Pictures, although fans have already seen Garfield sans mask and wearing a backpack in an earlier photo online.
The official title for the film, The Amazing Spider-Man, is a nod to the long-running Spider-Man comic book series.
