Spider-Man, Spider-Man, does whatever a spider can. Spins a web, any size, catches thieves just like flies, look out! here comes the Spider-Man". Ok, now that that's out of the way (they just don't make them themes the way they used to) Comic-Con 2011 is right around the corner which means promo for “The Amazing Spider-Man" is in, ahem, full swing.

Spider-Man, Spider-Man, does whatever a spider can. Spins a web, any size, catches thieves just like flies, look out! here comes the Spider-Man". Ok, now that that's out of the way (they just don't make them themes the way they used to) Comic-Con 2011 is right around the corner which means promo for “The Amazing Spider-Man" is in, ahem, full swing.

Entertainment Weekly already put the new Peter Parker Andrew Garfield ("The Social Network," "Never Let Me Go," a tremendous performance in a film called, "Boy A" that you likely missed) on its cover this week and delivered a deluge of photos including first look press shots of Emma Stone and villain Rhys Ifans and now they've delivered even more.

These ones seem to center mostly on Peter Parker before he becomes Spider-Man including him messing with what appears to be his high-school rival Flash Thompson and a funny-looking shot of Parker in what appears to be a proto-crime-fighting Spider-Man costume. While the film purports to be grittier, it appears it's not without its sense of humor either (check out the Peter Parker's got the munchies shots).

There's a lot of reasons to like and look forward to this new iteration of 'Spider-Man.' For one it's directed by someone fresh and with a new take on the material, "(500) Days of Summer" helmer Marc Webb. And while that film might not have been for everyone and maybe a little twee around the edges, it's undoubtedly an assured debut feature and its based on the talents and style that he evinced therein that Sony felt confident enough to hand over the keys to a billion-dollar franchise. And let's face it, the Sam Raimi's version had worn out its welcome by the third and final stale film, so new blood was needed.

The film boasts an impressive cast too including Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Rhys Ifans and Irrfan Khan as the villains (the former will play the Lizard), with Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Julianne Nicholson, Annie Parisse, Chris Zylka and C. Thomas Howell rounding out the cast. ”The Amazing Spider-Man,” which is being shot and presented in glorious 3D, hits theaters on July 3, 2012. Surely a lot more will be revealed next week at Comic-Con 2011.
