Last week we got our first look at Andrew Garfield as the new Peter Parker courtesy of some leaked Spider-Man set photos, and for the most part, it seemed like fans weren’t all that impressed. Granted, the photos weren’t actual movie stills so maybe it wasn’t fair to judge, but the general consensus seemed to be that he didn’t quite look the part anyway. However, I’m really curious to see if people will change their mind now once they get a good look at the first official photo of Garfield donning the Spider-Man costume courtesy of Sony Pictures and Deadline Hollywood!
Personally I like it. A lot. Maybe it’s still too early to call, but I think I prefer this to the costume from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man movies. Andrew Garfield is also a bit taller and lankier than Tobey Maguire, which seems more in line with Spidey’s physique from the comics. I’ll be very curious to see what he looks like in action. What do you think, does this first official photo make you more excited to see Marc Webb’s Spider-Man? Check out a full-size version of the pic after the jump.
