Sony Pictures has released the first official image of Andrew Garfield in his Spider-Man costume. I loved the Spider-Man outfit from Sam Raimi’s movies so it’s tough not to mess with a good thing. I don’t want to nitpick this one image to death when A) I don’t know the context of the scene; and B) it’s ultimately just a costume. It’s slightly stylized, but it still doesn’t deviate too far from the mesh-style of the costume from the first three films. I am curious to know why the Spider emblem’s leg reach all the way down to Peter Parker’s crotch, but I’m sure there’s a good reason for it. But now I’m curious to know what the mask looks like…
Marc Webb’s untitled 3D Spider-Man reboot is due out July 3, 2012.

Here’s a close-up of the possible web-shooters:
