The official The Amazing Spider-Man site has launched with a number of new promo images for the upcoming movie.  The site also contains the official synopsis, which confirms that Sony plans on keeping the Spider-Man franchise for as long as possible by cranking out a couple of sequels.

Like most teenagers his age, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. In his journey to put the pieces of his past together he uncovers a secret that his father held…a secret that will ultimately shape his destiny as Spider-Man. This is the first in a series of movies that tells a different side of the Peter Parker story. On July 3rd, 2012, the untold story begins. And starring Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker), Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy), Denis Leary (George Stacy), Rhys Ifans (Curt Conners), Martin Sheen (Ben Parker), and Sally Field (May Parker), directed by Marc Webb, The Amazing Spider-Man movie is swinging into theaters in IMAX 3D!

    They have to stay in active development, or the rights revert back to Marvel. Which guarantees a pretty constant stream of s***ty movies. I’m not usually the guy to hate on things before they come out, but this has “money-grab” written all over it, especially seeing how they rushed it after cancelling Spidey 4. In the amount of time they took to slap this together, there’s no way it’s good.

      Well after the shitty treatment Captain America, Hulk and especially Thor received at the hands of Marvel and the excellent treatment the last X-Men movie got from Fox I think I’ll give Sony the benefit of the doubt on this one. And besides the costume itself I think everyone casted has been pretty spot on, I’m lookin forward to seeing this next year.

        I’m confused is your comment sarcastic or not? I’m not being argumentative here I’m ligitimately confused. I kind of liked the third X-men movie, but the general consensus seems to be that it was terrible and I thought Captain America and The Incredible Hulk (2008) were kinda genius and Thor was pretty darn good too.

        I do think they rushed this Spider-man movie, and well because they had to, but I’ll give it the benefit of the doubt. I really enjoyed the early part of Spider-man (the first Tobey movie) after he got his powers but before graduation, but that only lasted like 2 minutes. I’ll give it a shot.

          Sorry din’t mean to sound sarcastic. I really outside of the first Iron Man (which was brilliant) movie have not liked any of the movies Marvel has done through their own studios. I think they’ve sold out alot of their character’s origins to appease non fans and maybe they have to do this but I think it alienates their original fans. And the X-Men movie I was referring to was First Class which I thought was by far the best of any of the X-Men movies so far. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the new Spidey. But who knows right?
