The Amazing Spider-Man releases two new posters

Spidey has been in the wars

The Amazing Spider-Man has released a pair of new posters showing off the web-slinger's new suit in all its glory. And from the looks of those scratch marks, it seems as though Peter Parker is going to be put through the mill in his latest outing.

The first new poster shows Spidey striking a pose, with a number of lesions making a mess of his spider-logo. A lot of the promotional material has shown Spider-Man in various states of dishevelment, and it seems as though the Lizard is set to push his limits like never before.

The second new offering reverts to the more traditional web-slinging pose, with Spidey showing off his wrist-mounted dispensers whilst swinging above a very noirish-looking backdrop.

Meanwhile, director Marc Webb has been busy talking about Spider-Man lore, hinting at some of the villains we might expect to see in the forthcoming sequels.

"If I say anything, there will be too much speculation," he begins, before listing some of his favourite villains from the comics. "Kraven I think is great, Green Goblin of course is iconic… a lot of Mysterio's stuff is cool in the later comics."

There you go then… speculate away! The Amazing Spider-Man opens in the UK on 1 July 2012.


What do you make of the new posters? And which villains would you like to see in the sequel? Tell us, below...

      Alright, I'll admit it. I'm pretty excited about this now. At the very least, Andrew Garfield can't be worse than Tobey Maguire...

      I still don't know if they're allowed to mention the other Marvel films in this and vice-versa, but i really hope they do. A Nick Fury cameo would be awesome.

      What about the Hobgoblin as a future villain? But like the comics (until years later), his identity is never revealed.

      @FBMRawlinson I noticed that too, but thought I was imagining it. @SiMan You would think it would be in the interest of all the Studios to have their characters appear in other Marvel movies. Would it really hurt Sony that much to allow Spider-man to appear in a future Avengers movie, knowing people will flock to see the new Spider-man movie in the hopes that further crossovers could occur? I mean, imagine having Wolverine go up against Hulk, or have the Punisher take on Captain America etc... With money thrown in from all the studios, and the appointment of a non-biased/non-studio affiliated director, the people that hold the rights to these characters could make a f*****g killing producing a motion picture trilogy with all of these characters appearing in some capacity in an event like the Marvel Civil War... Seriously, no one could stand in the way of that...
