A very dark looking new IMAX poster for The Amazing Spider-Man has surfaced online. The poster offers up a great new look at Spider-Man with some gnarly looking slashes across his chest. This is the kind of poster that makes me wonder if the studio is trying to market this film as being The Dark Knight of Spider-Man. The film looks like it will be much darker than the previous Spider-Man films directed by Sam Raimi, which is kind of strange as Raimi is known for his dark side. Do you think the director of this new film, Marc Webb, will succeed in what he's trying to accomplish with this character?
Here's the Synopsis:
The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents' disappearance - leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr Curt Connors (Ifans), his father's former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors' alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.
The film swings into theaters on July 3rd, 2012! What do you think of the new poster design? Do you have any ideas for a better one?
