First Look on Spider-Man 2012 Reboot: Andrew Garfield in Spider-Man Suit and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacey

When everyone heard that Spider-Man will be rebooted in 2012, everyone scratched their heads ask as to why. Spanning over three films, who would have thought that the Sam Raimi directed Spider-Man film will be cancelled in favor of a new one. so no more Tobey Maguirte as "Spidey" and Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane Watson as they are now replaced by Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone in the 2012 remake of Spider-man. Another Marvel superhero film can be remembered that experienced such treatment. 2003's Hulk which stars Eric Bana as Bruce Banner/Hulk and directed by Ang Lee received poor reception which is really craving for a reboot which then came to reality on the 2008 with The Incredible Hulk, which then stars Edward Norton as Hulk with the direction of Louis Leterrier.

If you carefully look at the new Spider-man costume you will notice a small metallic object under Spidey's palm (wrist area) which means that the 2012 version of Spider-man uses mechanical web-shooters well to shoot web. It makes a lot more sense as to why Spidey needs to fold his middle or both his middle and the ring finger in order to shoot web. Whether it a genuine idea or just wanting to deviate from the Raimi's version of Spider-man this is a nice revision to the 2012 Spider-man film. Another change that the reboot will feature is the back to high school setting of this new franchise. The 2012 Spider-man reboot would also focus more on Peter Parker's first love, Gwen Stacy. An injustice was done to Gwen Stacy's character in the third and last Raimi Spider-man film so hopefully this will be the reboot's edge over its predecessor. The film also feature The Lizard as its main villain.

Would all these changes be enough to keep the Spider-man film series from falling apart? Hopefully the film would be accompanied by better story telling, production, acting, and loyalty to its form (Marvel comics) in terms of the characters for movie goers to have no complaints in seeing another Spider-man origin story.
