Don't call it the Spider-Man reboot — the upcoming 3-D spectacle starring the web-slinging superhero now has an official new name: "The Amazing Spider-Man."
Sony announced the film's title yesterday, reports Entertainment Weekly, and the studio also unveiled the photo of actor Andrew Garfield in full costume — mask and all.
"I feel like a kid in my pajamas," Garfield has said of donning the Spidey suit. "I can only say how it feels and it feels pretty special. It feels like a dream realized and a fantasy realized. I don't take it lightly and I feel incredibly lucky that I get to wear spandex for the next few months."
Tobey Maguire, who played Spider-Man in three earlier films, is also a fan of the scalier, edgier outfit. "I think they did a great job with the design of it," he has said, "and I'm excited to see it in action."
He'll get his wish when "The Amazing Spider-Man" soars into theaters in July 2012.
