There isn’t much to note in the blurb that Marc Webb’s reboot of the Spider-man franchise will now be called The Amazing Spider-Man, which harkens back to the comics of the 1960’s and 1970’s. The title change is a welcome one, and if the movie does well — seems like Webb knows what he’s doing — it opens the possibility for other titles in the series like The Spectacular Spider-Man and the Ultimate Spider-Man, etc.
I love the picture above, which was also released with this news. You get a strong sense of the costume, the mechanical shooters on the wrists, etc. [via usatoday]
