Attention readers of the Daily Bugle…I mean Smells Like Screen Spirit! Columbia Pictures has released the first image of Andrew Garfield (The Social Network) as Spider-Man. The new tale of Peter Parker is expected to take it back and focus mainly on how he gains and develops his spidey skills in high school. Written by James Vanderbilt (Zodiac) and Directed by Marc Webb ((500) Days of Summer), this new vision of Spider-Man is expected to take on a more contemporary/darker tone not unlike what was done with the Batman series. This time around our eyes will be dazzled in spectacular 3-D with Emma Stone playing Gwen Stacy, and Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt Connors/aka the Lizard. The franchise reboot won’t be out until July 3rd, 2012, but expect to see a smattering of teases over the next year and a half.
