Columbia Pictures Unveils Poster For ‘Amazing Spider-Man’
The new teaser poster for Amazing Spider-Man has been revealed! Superhero Hype got the exclusive image from Columbia Pictures and it’s got an eerie silhouetted image of Andrew Garfield scaling a corner wall and casting an ominous, and familiar shadow. Check it out below.
Amazing Spider-Man is set for a July 3, 2012 release date and will be shown in 2D and 3D. It stars Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker, Rhys Ifans as the Lizard/Dr. Curt Connors, Chris Zylka as Flash Thompson, Dennis Leary as George Stacy, Campbell Scott as Richard Parker, Embeth Davidtz as Mary Parker, Irrfan Khan as Nels Van Adder/Proto-Goblin, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben and Sally Field as Aunt May.
The poster also has a tagline “The Untold Story” that makes one wonder about the specifics explored in this new film. If it is based on Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley’s run of Ultimate Spider-Man then we can expect a much longer and thorough telling of the origin story. We should see Peter’s relationship with his Uncle Ben fleshed out more, perhaps even see a lengthy telling of what happened to Peter’s parents and how they fit into the film universe. While it’s true, this will be a reboot, there’s many directions they could go while modernizing it for the next generation.
So what do you think of the latest poster? Dig it, or don’t? What do you want to see as the untold story?
