It's here! After much arguing, debating, and waiting, we finally have our very first official look at Andrew Garfield in costume as Spider-Man in the new reboot of the superhero franchise being directed by 500 Days of Summer's Marc Webb. The photo was officially unveiled by Sony Pictures and Columbia Pictures testerday via Deadline (Thanks to MMDB reader Helder Chamba for the heads up ), meaning this starts their massive two-year marketing process, as the new Spider-Man won't arrive in theaters until July 3rd, 2012. But with that said, it's an exciting and intriguing first reveal, and one that I'm sure a lot of you guys might actually like. But what is he wearing?! View the photo below!

The texture of his outfit definitely does look unique and I'm amazed/surprised to see them come up with some that doesn't look too much like Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man costume, which I actually hate quite a bit. In addition to Garfield, Spider-Man (being shot in 3D as we speak) also stars Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt Connors, Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben Parker, Sally Field as Aunt May and Denis Leary as George Stacy. Production is now under way, as Marc Webb has already started shooting his epic new take on the beloved comic book superhero. That's all we've got for now, but it should be enough to get you guys talking, as this is quite a first look unveil. So what do you think of the new costume?
