With Spider-Man currently filming on location in Los Angeles, we’re able to get our first look at Dennis Leary as Captain George Stacy. While not as exciting as the first look at Andrew Garfield in costume as Spider-Man, they’re still cool to see.
While many of you might have wondered why Sony chose yesterday to reveal a first look at the costume, I’m guessing that it has to do with what they’re getting ready to film in the next week or two. If I was about to shoot on location with Garfield in costume as Spider-Man, I’d want to release the first image beforehand so the first time everyone sees the costume it looks perfect. If I’m right, expect some on location images of the Spider-Man costume in action very soon… Until then, hit the jump for more looks at Leary as Captain George Stacy.
I don’t know about the rest of you, but everything I’ve seen and read leads me to believe that the reboot of Spider-Man is going to be great. The only negative thing I can say is that it sucks we have to wait until July 3, 2012 to see the movie. By the time that date rolls around, they could be filming the sequel! At least this summer, at Comic-Con, we’ll get to see some footage. What do you all think of the images so far?
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.

The new costume appears to have tiny gold objects attached to the wrist. Are these web-shooters? For folks who don’t know, in the original comics, Spider-Man built himself web-shooters that he attached to his wrists. However, during development of the original Spider-Man, it was decided to make the webshooters an organic mutation since the filmmakers didn’t think it was believable that a high-schooler could build something so advanced. Here’s a close-up of the possible web-shooters:
