Above you see the poster for the upcoming reboot of Spider-Man, officially called The Amazing Spider-Man, starring Andrew Garfield. There has been much speculation as to the tone of the film, and if it will vary at all from the very recent Spider-Man series from Sam Raimi.
From the tagline “The Untold Story” it looks as though they’re going full reboot, although I don’t know how that makes it an untold story. The film doesn’t open until July, so keep your eyes peeled for a lot of promotional material for this film, one of the biggest releases of the upcoming summer.
I like the poster, it’s simply and stylish, and implies the darker tone they claim they’re going for. I’m a bit puzzled on what exactly Marc Webb has in store to differentiate this one, and how exactly to make Spider-Man darker without being too corny, but I’ll see it either way, really. And so will everyone else, which is what Columbia Pictures is counting on.
