Yesterday was a busy day! We got a great new look at Chris Evans as Captain America, and Sony released the first photo of Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man. I guess they wanted us to see it from them as opposed to a bad photo from a cell phone.

I like it! I’m excited about a Spider-Man reboot because I was less than thrilled with the job Sam Raimi did on the first series. I think this costume makes the previous films’ costume look really bad. Granted, we haven’t seen the mask yet, but this Spider-Man definitely looks younger, leaner, and more comic-book like. Oh, and the web-shooters!

I don’t pretend to know a whole lot about this new Spider-Man reboot, but the cast and crew sound like great picks. What about you? Is your Spider-sense tingling?
