Columbia Pictures releases the first image of Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man.
There he is folks, Andrew Garfield as your friendly neighborhood wall-crawler.
Garfield's ascension to the A-List was well earned, as he nailed one performance after another, from his star turn in "Boy A," to otherwise meh "The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus," to his work as Eduardo Saverin in "The Social Network."
It was that last part that convinced Sony Garfield was the right choice, despite the fact that he's English, gangly and in his late 20s. All those concerns aside, we thought he was a great pick--though Donald Glover at least deserved a shot, no?
The new Spider-Man swings into action July 3, 2012.
