Andrew Garfield as Spider-man

Tired of awards movies?  Just ready for summertime popcorn fun...well here's the first image of Andrew Garfield taking over the reins, or ruins of Tobey Maguire in Marc Webb's reboot of the Spider-man franchise.  The tease will have to settle for a while, since the as-of-yet untitled feature won't be coming out until July 2012.  Garfield's 2010 coming out party has been cause for celebration-- both The Social Network as his part in Never Let Me Go were quite splendid.  Of course those films are far interesting to me eyes than comic-book adaptations, or reboots-- isn't the reek of Spider-man 3 still in the air to give much a damn about the whole thing anyway?  Then again, Webb proved a nifty visual stylist with 2009's (500) Days of Summer, and I'm curious what he can do with real money at his disposal, and the casting seems intriguing with newcomer Garfield and Emma Stone playing his love interest.  However, the whole unnecessary-ness of it leaves a bad taste in my mouth.  We have a year-and-a-half to quell our expectations.
