"The Amazing Spider-Man" has been teasing fans with everything from a teaser trailer to new high-resolution photos of Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone in character.
Now, the buzz is around the film's use of web-shooters - the same devices portrayed in the original Marvel comic-book series.
"The Amazing Spider-Man" director Marc Webb recently talked about his decision to include the web shooters, which were not featured in Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" films with Tobey Maguire.
"I was curious about the incarnation of them . . . that was one thing but the other thing was the fact that the web-shooters were able to dramatize Peter's intellect and I thought that was really cool," Webb told Hero Complex.
"To me, it's something I remember from when I was a kid and thinking, 'It would be cool if I could build those,'" he said.
Webb's Spider-Man costume is also different from Raimi's version. In the new film, Garfield sports a suit that makes his body appear longer, and that's just what Webb was after. He also confirmed with Hero Complex that different suits were also used to adjust to the film's lighting.
"I wanted something that worked in the night a little better. We paid attention to that and also made the webbing [on the costume] a little bit darker. With the costume and the web-shooters we wanted to emphasize that these are things that Peter Parker made and that he is special himself even if he feels like he's an outsider," said Webb.
Columbia Pictures' "The Amazing Spider-Man" flies into theaters on July 3, 2012.
