After months of very little news on The Amazing Spider-Man (The Blot’s withholding judgment on the so-called Lizard leaks until I see real photos), Sony dropped this pretty cool teaser one sheet movie poster. I dig the image because it’s what a teaser image is supposed to be…it gives you a very little taste and leaves you wanting more. And while most of him is hidden in the shadows, you can unmistakably make out Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker in the poster. I also like that the one sheet’s catch phrase, “The Untold Story”, lets you know the film is an origin story but won’t just be rehashing what we’ve seen before. It actually gives The Blot a glimmer of hope this film could be entertaining, because the last thing I want to see is another origin story. We got that in spades last summer with Thor, Green Lantern and Captain America.
The Amazing Spider-Man premieres on July 3, 2012.
