    [release]1. The WEB-SHOOTERS

    See those metal discs on Peter Parker's wrists? If they're mechanical web-shooters, the new franchise could be planning a major reboot of the character's history, as longtime fans know that Peter Parker's web-shooting ability originally stemmed from a pair of mechanical bracelet-like contraptions that he wore under his gloves. In the comics universe, the "webs" he shot were composed of a chemical he invented, and not a product of the radioactive spider-bite that gave him his other powers. Recent storylines in Spidey's comics universe have gone back and forth on the "organic vs. mechanical webbing" debate, with the prior movie franchise going full organic for this plot point.

    Could the new films be veering back to mechanical web-shooters, or are the discs just a new element that facilitates Spidey's organic web-shooting abilities?



    2. THE SYMBOL

    Every iteration of Spider-Man's costume in the comic book, television, and movie worlds have always added their own unique tweak to the spider symbol on Peter Parker's chest. Sometimes it's been a wide, shoulder-to-shoulder look, other times it's been reduced to a small badge centered on the character's chest. In some cases, the symbol has stretched vertically from Peter's shoulders to his waist which appears to be the direction they're going with this new costume.



    3. THE GLOVES

    Given his web-shooting requirements, Spider-Man's gloves have always been an important part of the costume. In this new iteration of the iconic red-and-blues, we not only get some silver, possibly web-shootery discs, but we also get a gauntlet that wraps around Spidey's upper forearm. I'm not sure what to think about the spiral style of the new gloves, but it definitely puts a new spin (sorry, I couldn't help it) on the old favorite.



    4. THE PROFILE

    I mentioned earlier that the new spider symbol on the costume accentuates the leaner, lankier actor underneath it, but that isn't the only element of the costume that seems designed to reinvent our impression of the ol' web-head. The new costume seems to give significantly more space to the slimming blue sections of the rib area and pants, and offers a narrower red vertical on the chest than we've seen on most of Spidey's movie costumes or many of his animated incarnations, for that matter.

    The new costume also seems to have eliminated the horizontal, red "belt" portion of the uniform, which only adds to the aforementioned slimming effect. This version of Peter Parker is bringing the skinny back, it seems.



    5. THE MATERIAL

    While past iterations of Spider-Man's costume seemed to opt for a more spandex look (with occasional ribbing on the webs), this new costume seems to be composed of a more mesh-like material. The webs no longer seemed to be glued on after the fact, and instead seem to be a part of the same material that makes up the rest of the costume. It's a small change, but a noticeable one. Here's hoping we get some explanation of where he got the costume this time around!

    And there you have it, folks five changes I noticed in Andrew Garfield's new Spider-Man costume. I'm sure there are some I missed, so go ahead and chime in below with your own observations![/quote][/release]

    The Curt Connors bit was confirmed? I thought his role was totally rumored. I haven't been paying attention to this that much, not that interested in it.

    What the fuck?

    He's kind of an important character, why would they even consider dropping him from the story?

    That's like having Batman without Commissioner Gordon

    Bollywood Star Calls His 'Amazing Spider-Man' Villain Role 'Pivotal'



    Marc Webb's upcoming reboot of the Spider-Man movie franchise now has an official title: "The Amazing Spider-Man," adopted from Marvel's most popular comic book series about the New York City-dwelling wall-crawler. And now the Bollywood star playing one of the film's villains has offered up a few more comments about the mysterious character he'll play in the project.

    "The role [in HBO's 'In Treatment'] got me some good reviews there and I think the industry there is aware of my work," said Irrfan Khan in an interview with NDTV (via ComicBookMovie). "Marc [Webb] had seen me and wanted to work with me and approached me for this role. I play one of the villains in the movie. It is a pivotal role.

    The name of Khan's character in the film, "Van Atter," has led many Spider-fans to speculate that he could be playing obscure 1990s character Nels Van Adder, who fought Spider-Man after being transformed into a monstrous beast (called "Proto-Goblin") by one of Norman Osborn's early experiments. Others have guessed that Khan will play a supporting role rather than a major villain.

    However, if it's indeed a "pivotal" role he'll play in "The Amazing Spider-Man," the rumor mill should certainly pick up some speed again.
