With four big budget comic book blockbusters hitting theaters this year, you'd think that audiences would want a brief respite from the brightly colored do-gooders that have dominated the box office recently. But, apparently, the gravy train has no plans on stopping anytime soon because movie studios are already whetting fanboy appetites for next year’s slew of funny book flicks.
The latest marketing campaign for the summer of 2012 has already started with Entertainment Weekly debuting a brand new image of Andrew Garfield as Marvel Comic's famous Wall Crawler in The Amazing Spider-Man. Directed by Marc Webb [(500) Days Of Summer] and co-starring Emma Stone and Rhys Ifans, this latest cinematic version of the Web Slinger is a complete reboot from Sam Raimi's trilogy that ran from 2002-2007. Sporting a sleek new outfit and hair that is an astonishing feat of engineering, Garfield seems poised to step into the sticky soled shoes of Toby Maguire, while attempting to create a depiction that is all his own.
The hype doesn’t just begin and end with this one pic, though; the debut of the movie's first trailer is set for next week, playing in front of select prints of Captain America: The First Avenger. And, for the hardcore fans, there will also be an Amazing Spider-Man panel at Comic-Con next weekend in San Diego.
The Amazing Spider-Man will hit theaters on July 3, 2012.
