He's too thin.

I know Spider-Man is supposed to be small, but he should also have a muscular build.

I disagree.  Thin works well for Spidey.

I've been thinking about muscularity for superheros like Superman and Spidey.  Since their strength is derived from outside sources, wouldn't it make sense that they'd find it difficult to become musclebound?  I mean, how does Superman work out to blast his pecs?  Lift mountains?  Wouldn't it require extraordinary effort to build muscles when they're super-strong due to sci-fi radiation?  Spidey could already lift a car with his nerd build after being bit.

Although he does look kind of skinny, I think thin works for Peter Parker/Spidey as well.  Still muscular, mind you, but he doesn't need to be "buff" either.  As for the costume, I like what I see - at least so far.  I really liked the previous movie costume, but I can understand why they would want to change it up and make a "break" from those previous movies since this is supposed to be a reboot.  As long as the rest of the costume doesn't get too wacky, and the mask/eyes of the suit look good, I'll be happy.

As far as the web shooters, there is speculation that on the enlarged version of this photo you can see something on his wrist that look very mechanical web-shooter-like.  That would be cool.  I will say, I think that Andrew Garfield, at least from the very little we've seen so far, does look the part (Peter Parker at least) pretty well.

According to IGN, there will be no J.J. Jameson in the upcoming Spidey reboot - at least in the first movie.  If this is true, I'm a little disappointed.  I can see getting away with not having him, and perhaps introducing him at the end of the movie or in the sequel, but I think I'd like it better if we had JJ from the start.  It looks as if the Bugle is included (as set pics have shown a Bugle van), so it will be interesting to see if they just avoid Peter getting his job there for the time being (and that comes later) or something else.  Or, IGN's report could just be misinformed too, so we'll see.

The title has been officially announced: The Amazing Spider-Man

This was the title I was really hoping they would go with, and the announcement included a new pic as well (and an Official Movie Site

I kind of like it.  It's just enough different from the previous version, but still true to the character.  And I agree with Bill on the mechanical webshooters.

Waaaay too much blue in that costume, but things sound promising.

Cool photos of Spidey in action

Nice to see they're not going 100% CG.

The new look is growing on me.  Granted, the costume from the original Spidey trilogy was about as good as you can hope for in a comic adaptation, but I can see why they may have wanted to change it up a little bit.  I guess I'm just excited that another Spidey movie is on the way, and hopefully it won't disappoint.  Andrew Garfield - at least looks-wise - reminds me more of Peter Parker than Tobey Maguire did - although I did really like those movies (particularly the first two).  Spider-Man 2 remains one of my all-time favorites, in fact.

Oh yeah, not sure if I've even changed it since that time.  Don't actually pay much attention to it anymore, as I don't want to take the time to go find a new one :P.

Entertainment Weekly has posted 9 new pics from Amazing Spider-Man, as part of the cover story for this week's "Comic Con Preview" issue.  Also, rumors are rumbling that the first teaser trailer will be attached to Captain America next week:
