Dramatic Teaser Poster Arrives for The Amazing Spider-Man

Superhero Hype has unveiled a stunning new poster for The Amazing Spider-Man, director Marc Webb’s upcoming Columbia Pictures franchise reboot. Unfortunately, the dramatic image is marred by the website’s watermark …

Opening in 3D on July 3, The Amazing Spider-Man stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Irrfan Khan, Denis Leary, Chris Zylka, Campbell Scott, C. Thomas Howell, Julianne Nicholson and Annie Parisse.

    Nice!

  • Mythos

    The teaser trailer and now this poster heavily imply there’s a big subplot about Peter’s parents in the movie. Maybe that whole “secret agents” thing will be brought over from the ’90s comics.

    Meh, hoping for something a little bit more dramatic.  At least in Spidey’s colors.

    That shadow doesn’t even make sense. The awkward position a spider’d have to be in to cast that is ridiculous.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QKN5MHOI6VUFOYCTV5REK7M7A4 Jacob

    It would certainly go a long way towards establishing this as a different universe.

  • Sirnougat

    untold story?

  • kalorama

    You do realize it’s not supposed to be a realistic, representative image right? It’s a design for dramatic effect.

  • LightningBug

    It’s a visual device that’s obviously not supposed to represent a real spider’s shadow. I mean sure, a spider might have trouble casting that shadow, but in the image a person is casting it which is obviously not realistic. Your criticism makes little to no sense. What are you talking about?

  • Grr

    lol i wonder what you have to say the phantom menace poster of young anakin with darth vader as a shadow. your ridiculous.

  • Rjay7351

    Wow, some people will bitch about anything.

  • Shawn

    This is one of the best superhero posters I’ve ever seen.

    He looks like he’s taking a dump. A giant spider shaped dump. And what untold story will they tell? How Hollywood is do bereft of ideas it reboots super hero franchises every ten years?

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QKN5MHOI6VUFOYCTV5REK7M7A4 Jacob

    Pretty much the same thing.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QKN5MHOI6VUFOYCTV5REK7M7A4 Jacob

    You do realize that I said nothing about the fact that Peter could never possibly cast that shadow ever (unless they were doing Man-Spider)? I now it’s not supposed to be realistic. Doesn’t stop me from thinking that about the shadow’s position.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QKN5MHOI6VUFOYCTV5REK7M7A4 Jacob

    How does my criticism make “little to no sense”? I said nothing about the fact that Peter was casting that shadow. I don’t care about that. The position of the light makes it very awkward to cast that shadow (for a spider, impossible for Peter), I thought that, I posted it. Nowhere did I actually criticize the poster. I think it looks pretty cool.

    They seem to be telling a story about Peter’s parents, which is completely untold in the movies.

  • Jdd1369

    that’s right … the fact that a kid getting bitten by a spider that then transforms him into a superhero is quite readily accepted, but the lighting is what ruins it??????

    gotta love internet posters

    But you did say something about how a spider could never cast that shadow, which makes absolutely no sense, since there’s not even an actual spider in the photo.

    So the shadow makes even less sense? I never said that a spider was actually casting that shadow, simply that in order to cast that shadow, a spider would need to be in a ridiculous pose. It’s quite obvious that Peter is casting that shadow and that they were going for symbolism and impact over realism.

    Which makes your initial complaint about the unrealistic position of the shadow vis-a-vis a nonexistent spider completely ludicrous.

    How? I never stated that a spider was casting the shadow. I never stated it was implied that a spider was casting the shadow. I simply stated that, for that shadow to really exist, in the real world, a real spider would need to be in a really awkward position. I also never complained. Stating your thoughts on something is not an instant complaint. I’ve gone on to state that I really like the poster (would’ve said love, but that new TDKR poster is freaking amazing). I’ve gone on to explain the different between realistic and interpretive art (guess which this is?).

    You’re a troll (or just dumb) and I wash my hands of you.

    Few things. A: Not crying/whining/bitching/moaning/whatever. B: Never told you to not express your opinion. C: There were much politer ways to express yours. That’s what I took issue with. That apparently, you have no manners. This is evident in both of your responses. D: I see nothing wrong with talking about something that’s ridiculous. In fact, they kind of make for good topics of conversation.
