With The Avengers ready to come out in North America in just a few days, Sony Pictures is ready to begin its major promotional push for its upcoming Spider-Man reboot, The Amazing Spider-Man. Directed by Marc Webb, the movie promises to take a much more grounded approach to the character and dig deeper into his origins.

And courtesy of Comic Book Movie, we have two new images from the film that show off its darker nature. In one, we see Spidey apprehended by the SWAT team and handcuffed like a common criminal. And in the other one he is looking pretty beaten up and bloodied in what looks to be Dr. Curt Connors' (Rhys Ifans) laboratory. The next trailer for the movie is set to be released this week, so hopefully we'll get an even better look at Connors as the Lizard.
